According to Engadget, Google introduced Gemini at I/O 2023 touted as a platform model with impressive multi-modal operations during training. initially, Google planned to launch it before the end of the year, but sources revealed Gemini was having difficulty with non-English queries, causing CEO Sundar Pichai to delay its release.
Gemini is designed to be able to handle a wide range of applications, combining different types of data such as images and text for more advanced tasks. “After being refined and rigorously tested for safety, Gemini will be available in a variety of sizes and capabilities,” Google said in May.
Gemini is also expected to bring improvements to Google’s existing AI products and AI enhancements, such as Bard, Google Assistant, and Search. However, given the importance of this release and the position dominant player OpenAI already has in the market, Google is unlikely to want to risk bringing Gemini out too soon.
