Latest in AI: Google Gemini

Google just revealed Gemini and will directly integrate the AI into Google apps. The GPT-4 competitor comes in 3 models — Ultra, Pro, and Nano. The Nano model can run on Pixel phones without an internet connection, while Pro is being integrated into Bard and is said to be about as good as GPT-3.5 which OpenAI released in November 2022.

Here’s everything you need to know about Google Gemini:

Note about demo:

There has been some concern expressed by third parties about the edited versions of the Google demos above with claims that “the tech giant’s latest AI model is only marginally better than the one from OpenAI that’s been out for eight months.” Google also admits that the video is edited. “For the purposes of this demo, latency has been reduced and Gemini outputs have been shortened for brevity,” it states in its YouTube description. This means the time it took for each response was actually longer than in the video.

Although OpenAI released GPT-4 in March 2023, it had previously spent six months testing it for harmful side effects. That suggests the company likely completed its work on the model some time around September 2022.

ChatGPT Plus is powered by OpenAI’s most recent language model, GPT-4.

How it’s Made: Interacting with Gemini through multimodal prompting. Read more.

Gemini is built from the ground up for multimodality — reasoning seamlessly across text, images, video, audio, and code. Gemini is multimodal and can recognize images and speak in real-time. With a score of 90%, Gemini Ultra is the FIRST AI model to outperform human experts on the MMLU benchmark.

This demo is incredible if it is accurate and representative of actual performance.

Gemini has next-generation capabilities such as sophisticated reasoning, multimodality, and advanced coding. The model is also advanced in math and coding, as compared to ChatGPT (GPT-4), which cannot perform math. Check out this demo of them solving physics.

Gemini has an incredible understanding of science. It can find and extract research across 1000’s of research papers. Because Gemini is multimodal, it can not only understand text but also graphs through images!

And solving physics problems…
