Google nears release of AI software Gemini
Will directly compete with OpenAI's GPT-4 model
Google has given a small group of companies access to an early version of Gemini, its conversational AI software, The Information reported on Thursday, citing people familiar with the matter.
Gemini is a set of large-language models that power everything from chatbots to features that summarize text or generate original text based on what users want to read, like email drafts, music lyrics, or news stories, according to the report.
It is also expected to help software engineers write code and generate original images based on what users ask to see.
Google is currently giving developers access to a relatively large version of Gemini, but not the largest version it is developing, which would be more on par with OpenAI's GPT-4, the report added.
The search giant plans to make Gemini available to companies through its Google Cloud Vertex AI service.
Last month, Google introduced generative AI to its Search tool for users in India and Japan that will show text or visual results to prompts. It also made its AI-powered tools available to enterprise customers at a monthly price of $30 per user.
