Google continues to innovate in the field of artificial intelligence with its AI chatbot, Google Bard. Despite the presence of other AI chatbots equipped with GPT-3 and GPT-4 technologies, such as ChatGPT, Google Bard has been gaining ground with its unique features. The latest development in this regard is the integration of Google's new AI model, Gemini Pro, into Bard.
Gemini Pro represents Google's most advanced AI model to date, boasting impressive capabilities. It's designed to operate across various platforms, from data centers to mobile devices, and it's versatile enough to handle text, code, audio, images, and videos seamlessly. This feature positions Gemini as a highly adaptable AI model suitable for a broad range of applications.
One of the key aspects of Google Gemini is its three different versions: Gemini Ultra, Gemini Pro, and Gemini Nano. Each version caters to specific needs, with Gemini Ultra being ideal for demanding tasks, Gemini Pro for versatile usage, and Gemini Nano for efficient on-device operations. Google Bard's upgrade to Gemini Pro is a significant step, enhancing its abilities in advanced reasoning, planning, and understanding, and making it accessible in over 170 countries and territories in English.
Google introduces Gemini AI Nano, Pro, and Ultra supporting Bard
The integration of Gemini Pro into Google Bard is not the only exciting development. The upcoming Pixel 8 Pro will soon receive an update to run Gemini Nano. This update is expected to introduce new features like Summarize in the Recorder app and Smart Reply in Gboard, specifically for WhatsApp.
Gemini Ultra stands out with its ability to perform a wide array of tasks. It excels in natural image, audio, and video understanding, mathematical reasoning, and multimodal problem-solving. Remarkably, Gemini Ultra has surpassed human experts in MMLU, a benchmark assessing knowledge and problem-solving skills, and achieved an impressive score in MMMU, a multimodal reasoning benchmark. Its proficiency extends to image benchmarks without requiring object character recognition, showcasing its native multimodal and complex reasoning capabilities.
Google plans to make Gemini Ultra available for early testing and feedback to a select group of users. This preliminary phase will precede a broader rollout to developers and enterprise customers in early 2024. Additionally, Google is set to launch Bard Advanced, powered by Gemini Ultra, in early 2024. Bard Advanced aims to provide users with access to the most advanced capabilities of this cutting-edge AI technology.
