Google enhances Bard chatbot with ‘Gemini’ AI in race against ChatGPT

Google improves Bard with advanced artificial intelligence ‘Gemini’

Google, after an extensive research and development process that lasted more than eight months, has just presented its most advanced artificial intelligence. While not all parts are expected to be available to the general public, this update represents a significant advancement in the company’s technology.

Introduction to the Age of Gemini

The tech giant took an important step forward in technological competition, launching a new version of Bard, its chatbot, which is now powered by advanced AI Gemini technology. This updated chatbot is currently available to English-speaking users in over 170 territories and countries, with availability starting immediately.

In the words of Sundar Pichai, CEO of Google, “We are witnessing the beginning of the Gemini era”, associating this milestone with the original vision of creating Google DeepMind, the company’s AI laboratory. Google’s intention is to implement three different versions of this technology across a diverse range of products and services in the coming months.

The advantages of Gemini over previous versions

Leading voices at Google DeepMind, including director Demis Hassabis, noted that Gemini has superior capabilities to Google’s previous chatbot technologies, generating more accurate responses and coming closer to simulating human reasoning in some specific situations.

Development of Gemini began earlier this year as part of a congressional effort to match the capabilities showcased by San Francisco artificial intelligence startup OpenAI and its innovative chatbot, ChatGPT.

Gemini’s Multifaceted Capabilities

Gemini stands out because it is designed not only to analyze text, but also images and sounds. Despite this, the integration of these image and sound analysis skills into the Bard chatbot will be implemented later.

The different versions of Gemini

Google has developed three Gemini variants, each with its own abilities. The most advanced, ‘Ultra’, will have the mission of managing complex tasks and will be launched next year. ‘Pro’, an intermediate version, will be integrated with numerous Google services. Finally, the ‘Nano’ version will enhance some features of the Pixel 8 Pro smartphone.

Each Gemini variant is an example of what scientists call large-scale language models (LLMs), which are complex mathematical systems that learn skills by analyzing large amounts of data.

Google Cloud Services and Market Competition

Google Cloud, which offers artificial intelligence and computing services to other companies, is eager to provide customers with Gemini technology as it continues to compete for contracts with OpenAI and Microsoft. Google’s plan is to make Gemini Pro available to cloud customers starting in December of this year.

Despite the accelerated pace to regain AI leadership from OpenAI, Pichai acknowledges that the market is large enough to accommodate multiple AI vendors, signaling great enthusiasm for the upcoming releases.

Conclusion

In short, Google is updating its chatbot offering with the implementation of Gemini, an ambitious project that promises to improve on past performance and compete closely with ChatGPT. This reflects a significant advancement by Google in the sphere of artificial intelligence and demonstrates the rapid evolution of the field.
