Google’s AI now goes by a new name: Gemini

Gemini replaces Bard and Duet as the model and product for releasing all of Google’s AI into the world.


A state-of-the-art AI model called Gemini AI was created by experts from Google’s merged AI teams, DeepMind and Google Brain. This new technology is a big advance in natural language processing (NLP) and is expected to compete with OpenAI’s GPT-4. Understanding Gemini AI

Google is well-known for its multitude of similar products with confusingly different names and seemingly unrelated features. However, in the realm of artificial intelligence, Gemini is the one name that truly stands out. (Are you interested in a messaging app?)

On Thursday, the company revealed its plans to rebrand the Bard chatbot as Gemini, introduce a dedicated Gemini app for Android, and integrate all Duet AI features in Google Workspace under the Gemini umbrella. Additionally, the public release of Gemini Ultra 1.0, Google’s most powerful large language model to date, was announced.

Gemini’s mobile apps are expected to be the primary platform for introducing the new tool to most users. Upon downloading the new Android app, you can designate Gemini as your default assistant, displacing Google Assistant as the primary responder when you say “Hey Google” or long-press your home button. While Google is not eliminating Assistant at this point, the company has been minimizing its prioritization of Assistant and is positioning Gemini as the future. Sissie Hsiao, who leads Bard (now Gemini) at Google, describes it as “a crucial initial step towards creating a truly innovative AI assistant that is conversational, multimodal, and more helpful than ever before.”

1. Multimodal Capabilities

Gemini AI is designed to be multimodal, which means it can seamlessly understand and operate across different types of information, including:

  • Text: It can process written language.
  • Code: It understands programming languages and code snippets.
  • Audio: It can analyze spoken language and audio data.
  • Image: It recognizes visual content.
  • Video: It comprehends video sequences.

This versatility allows Gemini to generalize and reason across diverse data modalities, making it a powerful tool for various applications.

2. Collaborative Efforts

Gemini AI is the result of large-scale collaborative efforts across Google, including contributions from Google Research. The model was built from the ground up to handle multimodal data, making it a flexible and adaptable solution.

3. Optimized Sizes

Gemini AI comes in three optimized sizes:

  • Ultra: The heavyweight version for complex tasks.
  • Pro: A balanced choice for most applications.
  • NATO: A lightweight variant suitable for resource-constrained environments.

Applications of Gemini AI

Gemini’s capabilities extend to various products and services:

  1. Bard: Formerly known as Gemini Bard, it assists with writing, planning, and learning. Writers can tap into Gemini’s NLP prowess to supercharge their ideas.
  2. Pixel 8 Pro: Gemini enhances user experiences on Google’s flagship devices.
  3. Search: Gemini improves search results by understanding user queries more deeply.
  4. And more: As Gemini continues to evolve, its impact will likely expand across other domains.

Cryptocurrency Gemini wins a Deloitte security audit.

With the recent announcement that it had successfully finished a SOC 2 Type 1 assessment, Gemini has gained more trust from partners and institutional investors. Deloitte was assessed to make sure Gemini’s security controls complied with industry standards. These safeguards protect user assets by covering the infrastructure, cryptocurrency storage system, and exchange platform.

Gemini’s objective to reimagine the financial industry is in line with its emphasis on security. The financial and technology industries now require SOC 2 reviews as a standard method of proving security compliance. In addition to its digital asset insurance, Gemini’s completion of the SOC 2 review demonstrates its dedication to industry best practices and customer protection.

Moreover, Gemini is getting ready to apply for permission to operate in the United Kingdom with the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). With this action, the UK is attempting to establish itself as a global center for cryptocurrency as UK lawmakers call on the FCA to regulate the sector.

Due to Gemini’s participation in cryptocurrency exchange-traded fund (ETF) proposals with the Securities and Exchange Commission of the United States (SEC), news has also surfaced. Although the SEC has decided to reevaluate earlier ETF proposals, they were rejected. According to Gemini co-founder Tyler Winklevoss, the Gemini dollar is a bridge connecting the crypto economy and traditional finance.

Users of Gemini can fund an Ethereum wallet with Gemini dollars by exchanging US dollars for Gemini dollars. On the other hand, they can deposit Gemini dollars into their Gemini accounts to convert them into fiat money.


Gemini AI represents a remarkable fusion of language understanding, multimodal reasoning, and collaborative efforts. As it continues to evolve, we can expect it to revolutionize how we interact with AI systems and unlock new possibilities in natural language understanding.
