Google Unveils New AI Model
As Google launches this new AI model, it is important to remember that AI is a tool. Will Google and the government be able to restrain this tool and use it for good, or will the enemy use this tool for evil?
From CNBC. Google is launching what it considers its largest and most capable artificial intelligence model Wednesday as pressure mounts on the company to answer how it’ll monetize AI.
The large language model Gemini will include a suite of three different sizes: Gemini Ultra, its largest, most capable category; Gemini Pro, which scales across a wide range of tasks; and Gemini Nano, which it will use for specific tasks and mobile devices.
For now, the company is planning to license Gemini to customers through Google Cloud for them to use in their own applications. Starting Dec. 13, developers and enterprise customers can access Gemini Pro via the Gemini API in Google AI Studio or Google Cloud Vertex AI. …
Companies and enterprises could use it for more advanced customer service engagement via chatbots and product recommendations, as well as identifying trends for companies looking to advertise products. Gemini could also be used for content creation if a company wants to create marketing campaigns or blog content, as well as productivity apps that may want to summarize meetings or generate code for developers.
The company gave examples including showing Gemini being able to take a screenshot of a chart and analyzing hundreds of pages from research and then updating the chart. Another example was analyzing a photo of a person’s math homework and identifying correct answers and pointing out incorrect ones.
Gemini Ultra is the first model to outperform human experts on MMLU (massive multitask language understanding), which uses a combination of 57 subjects such as math, physics, history, law, medicine and ethics for testing both world knowledge and problem-solving abilities, the company said in a blog post Wednesday. It can supposedly understand nuance and reasoning in complex subjects.
“Gemini is the result of large-scale collaborative efforts by teams across Google, including our colleagues at Google Research,” wrote CEO Sundar Pichai in a blog post Wednesday. “It was built from the ground up to be multimodal, which means it can generalize and seamlessly understand, operate across and combine different types of information including text, code, audio, image and video.” …
When asked on a press briefing if Gemini has any novel capabilities compared with current generation LLMs, Eli Collins, vice president of product at Google DeepMind, answered, “I suspect it does” but that it’s still working to understand Gemini Ultra’s novel capabilities. …
“This new era of models represents one of the biggest science and engineering efforts we’ve undertaken as a company,” Pichai said in Wednesday’s blog post. “I’m genuinely excited for what’s ahead, and for the opportunities Gemini will unlock for people everywhere.”
