Gemini Advanced launch: Google made major announcements regarding the future of its generative AI-based products today. For starters, the company renamed Bard and Gemini. It also announced Android and iOS apps for Bard. In addition to this, the company announced the launch of Gemini Advanced — a paid tier of Gemini, which brings advanced features and capabilities to users.
“Bard will now simply be called Gemini…The version with Ultra will be called Gemini Advanced, a new experience far more capable at reasoning, following instructions, coding, and creative collaboration, Google and Alphabet CEO Sundar Pichai wrote in a blog post.
For the unversed, Ultra or Ultra 1.O is the company largest large language model or LLM. It is also the LLM, which Google says is the first to outperform human experts on MMLU (massive multitask language understanding) that uses a combination of 57 subjects — including math, physics, history, law, medicine and ethics — to test knowledge and problem-solving abilities.
