Google Offers Gemini AI To Battle GPT-4 For Top Bot
There must be a good reason when your stock price jumps 5% in one day. Google‘s stock price rose 5% in a day after releasing Gemini, its new AI chatbot that upgraded Bard. Meanwhile, several other major tech companies launched their own AI bots, though none equal OpenAI’s number of users. Those companies include Microsoft and Meta.
Google executives said Gemini outperforms OpenAI’s GPT-3.5 chatbot, but the company didn’t share how it compares with OpenAI’s latest model GPT-4 Turbo. Still, Gemini shows there’s an opportunity to further monetize AI.
“We think Google has strong AI capabilities, and data suggesting that Google has best in class, proprietary, AI capabilities can be positive for the shares in 1H′24,” the analysts wrote in a note.
This article comes from cnbc.com, but several other major media outlets reported their takes on the release.
The folks at wired.com think users might need a lesson to learn how to operate Gemini to its full proficiency:
“Despite the premium-sounding name, the Gemini Pro update for Bard is free to use. With ChatGPT, you can access the older AI models for free as well, but you pay a monthly subscription to access the most recent model, GPT-4. Details on plans for Gemini remain scarce. Google teased that its further improved model, Gemini Ultra, may arrive in 2024, and could initially be available inside an upgraded chatbot called Bard Advanced. No subscription plan has been announced yet, but for comparison, a monthly subscription to ChatGPT Plus with GPT-4 costs $20.
The article is full of do’s and don’ts when working with Gemini and it reminds readers that these algorithms can make mistakes.
“As you experiment with Gemini Pro in Bard, keep in mind the things you likely already know about chatbots, such as their reputation for lying. Not sure where to even start with your prompts? Check out our guide to crafting better prompts for Google’s Bard.”
For now, Gemini is only available in English.

An opinion piece from bloomberg.com doesn’t pan the Gemini addition to Google but they like GPT-4 better. Many people do so far. In her piece, Parmy Olsen puts Google’s Gemni through some tests that she has run on GPT-4. She then explains why Gemini comes in second. Below is what is being called an edited video of Googl’es favorite interactions with Gemini and new users.
Olsen puts in charts of detailed capabilities that Gemini and Gpt-4 have when compared side by side. She ends her piece with:
“Google’s showboating is almost certainly timed to capitalize on all the recent turmoil at OpenAI. When a board coup at the smaller AI startup temporarily ousted CEO Sam Altman and put the company’s future in doubt, Google swiftly launched a sales campaign to persuade OpenAI’s corporate customers to switch to Google, according to a report in The Wall Street Journal. Now it seems to be riding that wave of uncertainty with the launch of Gemini.”
Google may still be playing catch-up, but it is definitely a contender in the AI race for the next big thing.
