Google DeepMind has announced the launch of its highly anticipated family of AI-powered chatbots called Gemini, which will rival the OpenAI GPT series. According to Google, the most powerful model within the Gemini chatbot family, Gemini Ultra, outperforms OpenAI’s most powerful model, GPT-4, in numerous tasks involving text, image, coding, and reasoning. Gemini Ultra will be available through a new AI chat feature called Bard Advanced starting from the beginning of next year, the company has announced. The model is currently undergoing continuous improvement and undergoing rigorous trust and safety checks, including red team testing by reputable external parties, according to the statement.
Additionally, Google DeepMind has also announced the launch of Gemini Pro model, which is now available to the public through Google’s Bard chat interface, as well as a smaller model called Gemini Nano, which will run on Google Pixel 8 Pro smartphone. All three models can process text, image, audio, and video materials and generate textual and visual outputs.
Google will begin integrating Gemini models into its other products and services, such as internet search and advertising. Developmental programmers will have access to Gemini Pro via API starting from December 13th, while Android programmers will be able to utilize Gemini Nano.
This suite of Gemini models will face competition from OpenAI, Anthropic, Inflection, Meta, and xAI companies founded by Elon Musk.
DeepMind was founded by a team consisting of Demis Hassabis, Shane Legg, and Mustafa Suleyman in 2010. Google acquired this AI laboratory for $400 million in 2014, and in April 2023, DeepMind was integrated with Google’s elite AI research team, Google Brain, leading to the formation of Google DeepMind, which is headed by Hassabis.
