Google launched Gemini recently, which claims to be the most powerful multimodal AI model in the current market. Gemini is positioned as a game-changer in the world of AI and its interaction with language. Gemini can understand and reason across different types of information, such as text, code, audio, image, and video. The price is cheaper than OpenAI, now available on Bard and Vertex AI.
What is the Multimodality of Gemini?
Google Gemini’s multimodality refers to its exceptional ability to understand and process information from various data formats simultaneously. This goes far beyond the typical text-based capabilities of most language models.
Gemini can ingest and analyze:
- Text: This includes natural language input like questions, prompts, and instructions.
- Images: Photographs, illustrations, and even complex diagrams are no problem for Gemini. It can extract meaning, context, and relationships within and between images.
- Audio: Music, spoken language, and even environmental sounds can be interpreted by Gemini to enrich its understanding and generate relevant responses.
- Video: Combining the above elements, Gemini can analyze the content and context of videos, extracting meaning from both the visuals and the audio tracks.
A word to say: Gemini can generate poems inspired by paintings, write music triggered by emotions, or design prototypes based on textual descriptions.
Three Flavors, One Goal: Gemini Ultra, Pro and Nano
Gemini is also the most flexible model of Google yet — able to efficiently run on everything from data centers to mobile devices. Its state-of-the-art capabilities will significantly enhance the way developers and enterprise customers build and scale with AI.
Gemini comes in three versions:
- Gemini Ultra — our largest and most capable model for highly complex tasks.
- Gemini Pro — our best model for scaling across a wide range of tasks.
- Gemini Nano — our most efficient model for on-device tasks.
According to Google, Gemini’s performance surpasses the GPT model in almost all aspects:
Visionary Application Scenario of Gemini
1. New Employee Guidance
We’ve discussed how Google Vertex AI Search can help businesses create a proprietary search engine. By inputting internal regulations and standards of procedures, Vertex AI aids in training new employees and searching for internal information.
For instance, a new employee, A, receives a document from their supervisor without a title and is unsure how to proceed. A can photograph the document and upload it to the internal search system. Gemini through text recognition, understands the document’s content and purpose, helping to find related procedures and even checking for any missing signatures from managers or departments.
2. Data Organization
Data scientist C needs to create an analysis report on website traffic by year-end. Not only a report but also a comparison to the previous year’s performance. Gemini can assist C in sifting through historical data to find the necessary figures and charts.
3. Code Generation
Engineer D has designed a web page in Figma but only has a preliminary concept with many details still unplanned. Writing front-end code from scratch is time-consuming and inefficient. Gemini can step in here, transforming a simple web page design into complete front-end code.
4. Sales Assistance
Salesperson E recently received a qualified lead from abroad, which could secure their annual sales target due to the significant purchase volume. Unfortunately, E struggles with foreign languages, and the client’s company comprises members from various countries with diverse accents. E records meetings and transcribes, which is time-consuming. Soon, Gemini could help E with this issue by summarizing audio recordings and providing detailed cues based on tone variations.
