Google's Gemini AI Reportedly Closing In On Release, Posing A Strong Challenge To OpenAI's GPT-4

Alphabet Inc.’s GOOG GOOGL Gemini AI is reportedly nearing its release, as a select group of external companies gains access to an early version, setting the stage for its integration into consumer services and business offerings via Google’s cloud unit, challenging OpenAI’s GPT-4.

What Happened: Gemini represents Google’s response to OpenAI’s GPT-4, as the tech giant aims to secure its position in the rapidly evolving field of AI-driven conversational technologies. 

A handful of external companies have been granted access to a preliminary version of highly-anticipated conversational AI software, reported The Information, citing people familiar with the matter.

Google is gradually rolling out access to Gemini, with developers currently able to explore a substantial version of the AI system. However, it is holding back its most substantial iteration, poised to rival OpenAI’s GPT-4 in terms of capabilities.

The tech giant Google plans to offer Gemini to companies through its Google Cloud Vertex AI service, signaling its intent to tap into the enterprise AI market.

While details about Gemini remain closely guarded, it is expected to comprise a suite of large-language models capable of powering chatbots and generating text, including email drafts, music lyrics, and news articles. Moreover, the AI software is anticipated to assist software engineers in code writing and generate original images based on user requests.

 Why It’s Important: Previously, it was reported that Sergey Brin has ramped up his engagement in the tech giant’s AI research by returning to Google’s Mountain View, California, offices for three to four days each week.

Despite taking a more distant role after he departed from an executive position at the company, Brin reportedly collaborates closely with the researchers working on Google’s Gemini.
