- Google’s Gemini challenges ChatGPT with similar language model capabilities.
- The development costs of Gemini anticipates to reach $100M, like ChatGPT-4.
- Gemini is projected to become available on Google’s Cloud Vertex AI platform.
Google’s Upcoming AI Offering
Taking inspiration from OpenAI, Gemini is said to mirror ChatGPT-4’s capabilities, including large language models (LLMs) designed to function as chatbots, producing text responses from prompts and aiding code creation.
The development costs of Gemini currently remain undisclosed. However, considering GPT-4 spent around $100 million to get up and running, Google’s forthcoming AI platform is estimated to hit a similar amount.
Future projections also suggest that Gemini will be available through Google’s Cloud Vertex AI platform — a robust and unified machine learning (ML) program issued by Google Cloud.
Past AI Approaches
Over the past months, Google has proactively integrated AI into its product suites. For instance, Google Cloud collaborated with DeepMind to create SnythID — an innovative software that tags AI images with a unique watermark to prevent copyright breaches and false information.
Moreover, the tech giant recently enhanced its search function in Japan and India via generative AI, enabling visual and text displays to respond to user inputs.
A compelling scoop from The New York Times in August also highlighted another Google-AI experiment called ‘ScaleAI’, an in-house AI tool that offers users “life advice” and handles more than 21 other functions. Still, Google remains secretive about the software and whether or not it will publicly launch.
As the internet world waits with bated breath, Gemini’s eventual release expects to raise the bar in the constantly adapting AI saga.
