Google on Wednesday launched its most advanced AI termed the Gemini Model. Google claims that the technology is capable of crunching all sorts of information such as photos, videos, and textual data.
Google’s CEO Sundhar Pichai in a statement stated that Google had been in the AI development race since the rise of ChatGpt almost 1 year ago. Afterwards, Google has spent hundreds of hours trying to develop the most advanced AI model ever.
Sundhar Pichai stated that this new era of models represents one of the biggest technological efforts we’ve taken as a company. Google has already integrated the new Gemini model to its AI assistant Bard and hopes that the most advanced Gemini version will be available next year.
Google said it will launch three Gemini AI versions with varying processing power. While the most powerful will run in data centres, the lowest processing power one can be run on mobile phones. Moreover, Google stated this AI model will be far cheaper than the rest of the models and this model isn’t just more capable, it’s also much cheaper.
Experts at Google suggest that even though this model takes a lot of time to train, Google is trying to ensure that the process is as swift as possible. Google had also announced the launch of their tensor processing chips the TPUs which will be capable of training AI models and consist of 8,960 chips.
