Google Strengthens its Presence in AI with Gemini
Recently, Google announced Gemini, an innovative multimodal artificial intelligence, consolidating its position in the race towards the best generative AI. This move follows the launch of Bard and aims to surpass the performance of ChatGPT, setting new standards in the industry. Gemini, integrated into the Google Pixel 8 and 8 Pro, will offer advanced messaging assistance. The ultimate goal is to implement it in all Google products by 2024, culminating with the launch of Gemini Ultra, a model superior even to GPT-4.
Demis Hassabis, CEO of Google DeepMind, pointed out that Gemini is ‘natively multimodal’, a step up from separate approaches for text, video and audio. This feature allows Gemini to capture linguistic nuances and interpretations never before seen in an AI, achieving human results in tests and benchmarks.
The Future of Search with Gemini
Google aims to turn Gemini into the new universal search engine. It will not just provide links or videos, but will offer customised information based on Google’s knowledge of the user, web content, reviews and analysis from Gemini. This approach could revolutionise fields such as medical research, science and finance.
Potential Risks and Regulations
However, the introduction of Gemini brings with it significant concerns.The non-profit organisation Future of Life Institute has raised fears about the possibility of advanced AI escaping human control, influencing employment, spreading fake news and propaganda.A petition calls for a six-month pause in the development of AI more powerful than GPT-4.
In short, the comparison between Gemini and ChatGPT comes naturally and highlights the rapid evolution of AI and the competition between technology companies to develop ever more advanced technologies. While ChatGPT has paved the way in many respects, projects such as Gemini aim to expand and surpass these capabilities, pointing to a future in which artificial intelligence becomes increasingly integrated, versatile and capable in various domains.
