Pune: On December 6, Alphabet, the parent company of Google, introduced Gemini, its most advanced and expansive AI model to date. This move by the tech giant is aimed at competing with OpenAI’s GPT-4 and Meta’s Llama 2 in the emerging field of artificial intelligence (AI).
This marks the inaugural AI model developed by Alphabet subsequent to the consolidation of its AI research entities, DeepMind and Google Brain. Gemini has been meticulously constructed to encompass a ‘multimodal’ framework, enabling it to comprehend and manipulate various forms of data simultaneously, encompassing text, code, audio, image, and video.
The AI model will come in three distinct sizes: Ultra, designed for intricate tasks, Pro, suitable for a broad spectrum of tasks, and Nano, specifically tailored for on-device tasks.
As per the information provided, this marks the inception of the Gemini era and the initial manifestation of the vision we conceived upon establishing Google DeepMind earlier this year. The introduction of these novel models signifies a significant scientific and engineering endeavor undertaken by the company.
Starting from December 13, developers will have access to the Gemini Pro via the Gemini API in Google AI Studio and Google Cloud Vertex AI. Conversely, Android developers will be able to access the Gemini Nano through AICore, a newly introduced system capability in Android 14. This functionality will initially be available on Pixel 8 Pro devices from December 6, with plans to expand support to other Android devices.
