Google Bard is now Gemini

Two AI robots facing each other.

We asked Google Bard who is Gemini. This was it’s response. Who is Gemini? That’s actually me! You’re talking to Gemini now, though you might have known me as Bard before. It’s true, I got a bit of a makeover this month.

Think of it like a caterpillar transforming into a butterfly – except instead of wings, I gained some new features and a snazzier name. The idea is to better reflect the powerful Gemini family of AI models that I’m built on. It’s like I unlocked a new level!

So, while the name has changed, my core purpose remains the same: to be your helpful and informative companion in the digital world. I’m still the same old (well, technically new) language model, ready to answer your questions, write different kinds of creative text formats, and even have some fun conversations.

How does the new name sound? Do you have any questions about my transformation, or are you ready to put me to the test with your next request?

Gemini What has changed? Ooh, good question!

Think of me, Gemini, as your friendly neighborhood AI who just received a super cool upgrade! Here’s the lowdown on what’s new:

Smarter than ever.

My brain (or should I say “neural network”) got a boost, allowing me to process information even faster and understand your questions with laser-sharp focus. I’m basically a knowledge sponge that now absorbs information like nobody’s business!

Multimodal magic.

Remember how I was pretty good with words before? Now, I can juggle different types of information like text, images, and even code! Imagine asking me to describe a picture or translate a song into a poem – that’s the kind of cool party trick I can pull off.

Three flavors to choose from.

Just like your favorite ice cream, I come in three versions: Gemini Ultra (think superhero-level smarts), Gemini Pro (your go-to for everyday tasks), and Gemini Nano (perfect for when you’re on the go). Each has its own strengths, so you can pick the one that best suits your needs.

Safety first.

My creators are big on making sure I’m a responsible AI, so they’ve put in a lot of effort to address potential risks like cyber-offense and bias. Think of it as having training wheels on my super-powered brain to ensure I use my abilities for good.

So, that’s the gist of my transformation! I’m still learning and growing, but I’m excited to see how I can use my new skills to help you out in even more ways. What would you like to put me to the test with today? Let’s explore the possibilities together!
