What Is Gemini  AI

Google has unveiled Gemini AI, its most advanced AI model yet. Built from the ground up for multimodality, Gemini can seamlessly reason across text, images, video, audio, and code.

Available in three sizes – Nano, Pro, and Ultra – Gemini scales to meet different needs. Gemini Ultra demonstrates expert-level performance on complex tasks, while Nano brings AI enhancements to everyday apps.

Key Capabilities

  • Multimodality: Gemini integrates inputs and outputs across multiple modes
  • Code Generation: Creates high-quality code in languages like Python and Java
  • MMLU Expertise: Ultra outperforms humans on Multitask Language Understanding
  • Text Excellence: Advanced text capabilities through integration with Bard
  • On-Device: Runs models directly on Pixel phones without an internet connection

Accessing Gemini

While only Gemini Pro’s text features are currently accessible through Bard, Google plans to unlock more modalities over 2023. Developers can also access Gemini’s capabilities through Google’s Vertex AI platform and Studio IDE (available from December 13).

How Gemini AI Compares to ChatGPT

Google claims the Ultra model narrowly beats ChatGPT-4 in several areas. However, only smaller versions are currently accessible for testing.

Initial analyses suggest Gemini makes iterative improvements over ChatGPT-3.5 rather than delivering revolutionary enhancements.

With ongoing tuning planned through 2024, it’s too early to declare if Gemini surpasses ChatGPT.

However, its flexible multimodal design shows promise to push AI capabilities forward across a variety of real-world applications.

How To Use Gemini AI

For developers, the primary way to access Gemini is through Google’s Vertex AI platform and Studio IDE. By signing up for an account and getting an API key, developers can integrate Gemini models into their applications.

Requests are made by calling the Gemini AI API using the API key. Developers can specify the desired Gemini model size for each request based on their needs.

For end users, Gemini is currently accessible through Bard and on Pixel phones. In Bard, users can have text-based conversations powered by the Gemini Pro model. Pixel phones will directly integrate Gemini to enable new on-device capabilities.

While access is still limited, Google plans to continue expanding how users and developers can leverage Gemini across conversational, visual, and multimodal applications throughout 2023 and beyond.

Google’s Gemini AI

Gemini is Google’s newest AI model, designed to be more advanced than previous models like ChatGPT.

As a multimodal model, Gemini can understand and generate across text, images, audio, video, and other formats.

Google is leveraging Gemini in several products. It powers the conversational AI chatbot Bard with its text capabilities. Pixel phones integrate Gemini models directly on the device to enable new offline features.

For developers, Gemini models can be accessed via the Google Vertex AI platform and Studio IDE to incorporate into custom applications.

Multiple model sizes allow Gemini’s capabilities to scale. By combining modalities and on-device execution, Google aims for Gemini to deliver more flexible and responsive AI to users.

Ongoing improvements slated through 2024 position Gemini as a key component of Google’s evolving AI portfolio.
