Google has announced that it will delay the launch of its latest AI system, Gemini, until January 2024. The launch of the GPT-4 neural network reaction was originally scheduled for next week. This decision is due to the need to refine the neural network to better work with non-English queries.
At the annual I/O 2023 conference, Google announced its latest AI model Gemini, attended by Google and Alphabet co-founder Sergey Brin. According to The Information, the company planned to unveil Gemini as early as next week at events in California, New York and Washington aimed at politicians and lawmakers. However, the launch of the neural network has now been postponed until January next year.
The decision to postpone the launch of the innovative AI system was made by Google boss Sundar Pichai. The reason was that Gemini did not work reliably enough for queries in languages other than English. Multilingual support is a priority for Google as the company strives to match and exceed OpenAI’s GPT-4 AI model. According to sources, Google has already achieved this standard in some aspects. In November, Pichai said Google was focused on releasing Gemini 1.0 as quickly as possible to create a competitive and cutting-edge product. However, the company is currently still working on the final version of Gemini.
Previously, Google pointed out at the I/O 2023 conference that Gemini will have impressive multimodal capabilities that exceed the capabilities of previous AI models. In addition to understanding text and images, Gemini will focus on effective integration with APIs and other tools, making it attractive to developers of various applications. Google also announced the development of multiple Gemini variants, including a mobile version of Gecko, and emphasized that Gemini is designed to support future innovations, including storage and scheduling features.
How quickly Gemini will be integrated into Google services such as Bard, Search and Workspace remains to be seen.
