Google is making big strides in the realm of conversational AI, according to a recent report from The Information. A select group of companies have been granted early access to Google’s upcoming conversational AI software, known as Gemini.
This new Google venture aims to compete head-to-head with OpenAI’s GPT-4 model, the report suggests.
Why is Gemini so important to Google? Well, it looks like the tech giant is stepping up its AI game to catch up with OpenAI, which made waves last year with its ChatGPT. Reuters reports that Google has been pouring resources into generative AI technology this year, catching up with OpenAI’s impactful entry into the field.
So what exactly can Gemini do? According to sources, it is a powerful set of large language models designed to do much more than just chat. Gemini can help with a variety of tasks, from composing emails and creating music lyrics to even summarizing articles and generating news. Thats not all. Software engineers could also use Gemini to write code, and it may even have the ability to create original images based on user requests.
Currently, Google only offers developers access to a somewhat watered-down version of Gemini, not the full model that would compete directly with GPT-4. However, plans are underway to make Gemini available to a broader audience through the Google Cloud Vertex AI service.
While Google has not officially commented on the matter, it is clear that they are committed to the realm of generative AI. Last month, they introduced artificial intelligence capabilities to their search tool for users in India and Japan. The feature produces visual and text responses to user queries. On top of that, Google already offers AI-powered tools to enterprise customers for $30 per user per month.
In short, it seems like Google is doing everything it can to become a major player in the conversational AI space. With the upcoming release of Gemini, they could give OpenAI and its GPT-4 model a chance.
