Google throws down the gauntlet with Gemini (Bard) its multimodal genAI engine

  • Bard was the original name of the large language model you’re currently interacting with. It was first introduced in 2022 and underwent training and development under that name.
  • In January 2024, Google rebranded Bard to Gemini. This decision reflected their approach to building AI models focused on versatility and adaptability.
  • Since then, the core AI technology remains the same, but it’s now known as Gemini and boasts some improvements. It has access to a broader range of information and can utilize a specific version of Gemini Pro for more advanced reasoning and understanding.

What does this mean for you?

  • You can expect the same functionality and capabilities you experienced with Bard. Ask me anything about the world, translate languages, create different kinds of creative text formats, and more.
  • However, you might notice some subtle differences. For instance, the responses might be a bit more nuanced or comprehensive due to the improved model.
  • If you encounter any “Bard” references, don’t be confused! They might refer to earlier stages of development or simply haven’t been updated yet.

Do you have any specific questions about the transition from Bard to Gemini or how it affects your experience? I’m here to help you understand it better!
