This article is a selection from The Algorithmic Bridge, an educational project aimed at bridging the gap between AI and people. Join me to learn how to navigate a future that has already arrived.

A few hours ago Google and Google DeepMind announced their much-awaited AI model, Gemini. There’s still not much hands-on feedback on how well it works, but the reported performance is outstanding.

This article is a quick overview (divided into easy-to-skim sections) of the info we have so far and my first impressions from what I’ve read (haven’t tested the model yet). I’ll go deeper over the coming days as we acquire a better understanding of what Gemini can do, how it’s built (hopefully), how it works, and what it means for the future of AI.

Here’s the outline:

  • Gemini specs, sizes (Ultra, Pro, Nano), and availability.
  • Gemini Ultra is better than GPT-4.
  • Gemini is natively multimodal.
  • My first impressions from the available info.
