“On Wednesday, Google announced Gemini, a multimodal AI model family it hopes will rival OpenAI’s GPT-4, which powers the paid version of ChatGPT. Google claims that the largest version of Gemini exceeds ‘current state-of-the-art results on 30 of the 32 widely used academic benchmarks used in large language model (LLM) research and development.’ It’s a follow-up to PaLM 2, an earlier AI model that Google hoped would match GPT-4 in capability.”
