Today, Google announced the highly anticipated launch of Gemini, their next-generation and most powerful AI model. It will be part of their newest Pixel devices as part of the December Feature Drop, and will also be powering Bard.
Gemini is Google’s latest AI project, which was announced back at the I/O 2023 conference. Bard now utilizes a specially-tuned version of Gemini Pro for improved English language operations, available initially in more than 170 countries and territories. This will enable Bard to have more advanced reasoning, planning capabilities, and understanding of tasks.
Early next year, Google will launch Bard Advanced, which will give users access to its most powerful models and capabilities, including Gemini Ultra. This advanced version of Bard will be able to handle even the most challenging tasks.
As far as performance, Google states that Gemini Pro outperformed leading AI models in various benchmarks, demonstrating its exceptional capabilities. Bard, empowered by Gemini Pro, received positive feedback, solidifying its position as a top free chatbot.
To demonstrate the capabilities of Bard with Gemini Pro, Google published a video in collaboration with YouTuber Mark Rober, in which he uses Bard with Gemini Pro to design the most accurate paper plane and showcasing the tool’s potential to elevate the creative process.
As part of Google’s commitment to developing AI responsibly, the company says that it has built safety features into Bard, such as the “Google it” button, which allows users to verify information.
With the addition of Gemini, Bard is poised to become the premier AI collaborator in the world, competing with current leaders such as ChatGPT. Users can try Bard with Gemini Pro today and experience its powerful capabilities for themselves.
