Gemini Advanced

Feb 15, 2024 | Productivity

Google recently unveiled significant updates to its Bard chatbot, now formally named Gemini. Gemini includes a new mobile app and access to its eagerly awaited Ultra model. A premium version, Gemini Advanced, provides access to Ultra 1.0, Google’s “largest and most capable” AI model that reportedly competes with GPT-4 on performance benchmarks.

It is also priced similarly at $20/mo., although Google includes Gemini Advanced as part of the newly rebranded Google One AI Premium (2 TB) membership plan. Google is clearly flexing its muscles to do an end-run around OpenAI.

A Gemini mobile app for Android and iOS offers improved on-device help with voice, text, and picture capabilities. Using a technology called “SynthID,” images created with Gemini will now have an undetectable digital stamp.

Gemini Advanced excels when collaborating with Google products. Thanks to integration with Google Maps, it provides improved information on current events and businesses. However, its image generation capabilities fall short compared to models like DALL-E 3.

  • Advanced tasks – Gemini Advanced handles tasks such as translation, handling multiple instructions, and image generation.
  • Summaries – It accurately summarizes complex academic papers.
  • Google Maps integration – A Google Maps integration provides better information about businesses compared to ChatGPT Plus.

The primary advantages of Gemini Advanced over ChatGPT Plus are:

  • Better integration – Gemini Advanced can access information from Google Search, Google Maps, and other Google products, which gives it a significant advantage over ChatGPT Plus when it comes to tasks such as finding information about businesses, getting directions, or making reservations.
  • More accurate information – Gemini Advanced is trained on a larger dataset than ChatGPT Plus, which gives it access to more up-to-date and accurate information.
  • More complex tasks – Gemini Advanced can handle more complex tasks than ChatGPT Plus, such as translating text, generating images from text prompts, and writing creative content.

Finally, on Feb. 15, 2024, Google introduced Gemini 1.5, which delivers dramatically enhanced performance and a new Mixture-of-Experts (MoE) architecture. It also introduces a breakthrough experimental feature in long-context understanding.

Gemini 1.5 Pro comes with a standard 128,000 token context window. But a limited group of developers and enterprise customers can try it with a context window of up to 1 million tokens to process vastly more data than previous AI systems. Gemini 1.5 Pro can handle 700,000 words of text, 30,000 lines of code, 11 hours of audio, or 1 hour of video — enabling groundbreaking processing capabilities.

As we predicted, artificial intelligence will only accelerate innovation, and we are already starting to see the results of that acceleration. 🤯
