Google aims to redefine the AI chatbot arena with Gemini. This new-generation AI model is believed to surpass human experts in a wide range of skills: from problem-solving to law, from mathematics to medicine, and from history to ethics.
What sets Gemini apart? It boasts an impressive ability to recognize, compare, draw conclusions and even propose suggestions. You'll find this kind of sophisticated reasoning in three different versions of Gemini: the Ultra version, the Pro version, and the Nano version.
Three versions of Gemini for distinct purposes
The Ultra version of Gemini outshines other models in 30 benchmark tests, making it ideal for complex tasks. It is scheduled to be launched early next year. The Pro version, on the other hand, is designed for a myriad of tasks. Lastly, the Nano version is perfectly suited for smartphone users, bringing advanced AI capabilities at the touch of their fingertips.
Bard’s expansion and integration
Bard will integrate Gemini to enhance its advanced reasoning, planning, and understanding capabilities. With its current availability in English in over 170 countries, the goal is to add more languages to its roster. Furthermore, the Gemini-infused Bard is set to expand to work with auditory and visual input, in addition to text prompts.
Last September, Google integrated Bard with popular tools such as Gmail and YouTube. This move is part of the company's commitment to constantly innovating and improving its AI chatbot.
Generative AI: the future of technology?
Despite the initial excitement, the question of generative AI chatbots' long-term viability persists. Yet, governments and tech companies, including Google, remain optimistic. Generative AI is heralded as the next big chapter in technology, prompting an uptick in spending on new products, research, and infrastructure.
