The battle of the AI giants is heating up.
Enter Google's new creation: Gemini.
Google has officially launched its latest AI model, aimed at dethroning OpenAI's GPT-4.
And its so good at mathematics.
It's a suite of AI tools that can handle text, images, audio, and video with ease.
Here's the features:
It comes in three versions – Nano, Pro, and Ultra.
Integrates text, images, audio, and video, allowing it to work across various types of data.
Gemini Ultra consistently matches or outperforms humans in benchmark tests.
Built from the ground up to understand and process various data types simultaneously - highly versatile.
Excels in converting complex problems across different data types (say - physics into math).
Achieves over 90% accuracy in multimodal language understanding benchmarks.
Gemini Nano is efficiency-focused, excelling in summarisation, comprehension, and reasoning.
Integrated into Google's Bard for an improved chatbot experience.
Generates high-quality code using AlphaCode 2.
Gemini is not limited to chatbots:
Making its way to Google's flagship phone, the Pixel 8 Pro.
It will expand reach across Google products and services: Search, Ads, and Chrome.
Will be rolled out in over 170 languages.
Plans to transform Search into a generative user experience.
While the initial results are promising, further real-world testing is needed to assess its practical performance and applications.
Coming Soon to a Chatbot Near You
You won't have to wait long to experience Gemini for yourself.
A tuned-up version of Gemini Pro is available today with Bard, and Gemini Ultra is set to debut next year in Google's chatbot, Bard Advanced.
Google says that Gemini outperforms OpenAI's GPT-4.
To back up its claims, Google conducted several benchmark tests comparing Gemini to GPT-4.
In these assessments, the Gemini Ultra version achieved "state-of-the-art performance" in 30 out of 32 academic benchmarks typically used in the development of large language models.
Gemini's inherent multimodal capability sets it apart from models like GPT-4, which rely on external plugins and integrations to achieve multimodality.
But, the online community remains skeptical. Like always.
Was it overhyped and misleading?

Jito, a Solana-based liquid staking protocol, just dropped a $225 million worth of tokens on Solana users.
Debut price tag: $6.01, (CoinGecko) valuing the 90 million tokens set for the airdrop at $540.9 million.
Shortly after the launch, the JTO token experienced a dramatic 58% drop, falling to $2.50.
Solana DeFi users wasted no time and claimed over 54 million JTO tokens out of the 90 million available in the airdrop.
Eligible Participants: JitoSOL holders, Solana validators running Jito MEV clients, and users of Jito’s MEV services.
Some whales in the Solana ecosystem expressed dissatisfaction, feeling that the airdrop didn't proportionally reward those who conducted substantial transactions on Jito.
