Google Gemini 1.0 is here – The most advance and powerful AI model yet from Google. It beats GPT4 in most benchmarks. Seems like Google took the narrative of “Google lagging behind OpenAI” seriously.
The new Google Gemini 1.0 AI packs some serious power, beats GPT 4 is most cases.
This is the model developed by the team at Google DeepMind – which was formed after merging Google Brain and DeepMind.
Gemini 1.0 –
But what’s so special about Gemini? First off, it’s multimodal, meaning it’s fluent in the language of text, code, audio, images, and videos. Imagine a digital assistant that doesn’t just understand your words but can also appreciate your terrible images, videos and everything in between.
In the above demo, Google showed how Gemini can process information like a human brain – seeing, understanding, and suggesting actions in real-time.
The Gemini lineup includes three variants: Ultra, Pro, and Nano. The Ultra is the powerhouse, designed for complex tasks, while the Pro is the versatile all-rounder. The smallest but most interesting for us is Gemini Nano – the smallest yet efficient model with capability to run on your phone without Internet.
Benchmarks and Comparisons: Gemini Vs GPT4
Coming to benchmarks, Google’s latest AI wonder has been put through a rigorous testing regime, and the results are in: Gemini Ultra beats GPT4 in 31 of the 32 widely-used academic benchmarks.
Now, this is some serious feat. But there is even more: with a score of 90.0%, Gemini Ultra is the first AI model to outperform human experts in MMLU (massive multitask language understanding). This is no small feat.
But this result has been kind of disputed by OpenAIs Boris Power.
Gemini is even better in multimodal capabilities.
Overall, Gemini seems to better than GPT4. Especially in multimodal capabilities, with Googe Really stressing Gemini being natively Multimodel.
Availability of Google Gemini 1.0
Starting today, Gemini is available via Bard.Google.com in Gemini Pro variant.
Gemini Nano is making itself cozy in the Pixel 8 Pro, bringing new features like Summarize in the Recorder app and Smart Reply in Gboard.
One of the biggest advantages being available in 130 countries at once, something in which OpenAI definitely lacks.
As per Google “In the coming months, Gemini will be available in more of our products and services like Search, Ads, Chrome and Duet AI.
We’re already starting to experiment with Gemini in Search, where it’s making our Search Generative Experience (SGE) faster for users, with a 40% reduction in latency in English in the U.S., alongside improvements in quality.”
For developers and businesses. From December 13, you can play with Gemini Pro through the Gemini API in Google AI Studio or Google Cloud Vertex AI.
Android devs, you’re not left out – you’ll get to tinker with Gemini Nano via AICore in Android 14, starting on Pixel 8 Pro devices.
But, there are still some questions – Gemini Ultra, is still in the oven, finishing its trust and safety checks. Google will be launching Gemini Ultra sometime at the start of 2024.
With Gemini, Google isn’t just back in the AI race; it’s back with a bang. It’s a great comeback move from the company that once led the way with transformer technology.
And while the tech world watches with bated breath, one thing’s for sure: the AI landscape just got a lot more interesting. GPT4 of OpenAI now has some serious competition. Waiting for GPT5 now.
Stay tuned – 2024 is going to be a great year for AI.
