Context: Recently, Google introduced Project Gemini, an artificial intelligence (AI) model designed to exhibit human-like behavior.

Google Gemini

  • About: Gemini is an AI model that cannot be accessed directly. Rather, it acts as a base that Google and, ultimately, other developers can use to build products on top of.
  • Built by: Gemini was built from the ground up to be multimodal, which means it can operate across and combine different types of information, including text, audio, image, code, and video.
  • It can recognise images, speak in real-time, and even solve physics with remarkable ingenuity.
  • Gemini 1.0 comprises 3 Models: Ultra, Pro, and Nano.

oGemini Ultra: It is Google’s most powerful LLM ever and is aimed at enterprise applications that will run it for “highly complex tasks.

oGemini Pro: It is the most general-purposed of the three and has already been plugged into Bard for prompts that require advanced reasoning, planning, and understanding.

oGemini Nano: It described as the most efficient model for on-device tasks, has been baked into the Pixel 8 Pro to process tasks like information summarisation and Smart Reply.

  • Tensor Processing Units: Gemini 1.0 on its AI-optimised infrastructure using its in-house designed Tensor Processing Units (TPUs) v4 and v5e.

Is Gemini better than ChatGPT 4?

  • Gemini seems to be more flexible that GPT4 at the moment. Also it ability to work with video and on devices without Internet give it an edge. 
  • Gemini is now free to use while ChatGPT4 is only for paid users.
