Gemini Vs GPT-4 – Battle of the titans
GPT-4 has been the State of the Art (SOTA) model in recent times for a number of generative AI use-cases but now we have a new contender. Meet Gemini. Led by Google’s DeepMind division this is a model built with multimodality as part of its DNA.In this quick read I aim to provide some of the key differentiators and benefits of Gemini and why it might outclass GPT-4 based on specs. Real world outcomes will prove whether this is indeed the case.
The most valuable capability of Gemini is its ability to consume more content types seamlessly as part of its multimodal setup. Multimodality is the ability of models to digest, interpret, and generate information across multiple forms of data, such as text, images, audio, video, etc. Gemini is able to reason seamlessly across text, image, audio, video and code! GPT cannot match this breadth of data at this time. It can handle only text and image inputs.
According to Google “Gemini is the first model to outperform human experts on MMLU (Massive Multitask Language Understanding), one of the most popular methods to test the knowledge and problem solving abilities of AI models.”
Another significant differentiator is the model’s ability to interpret interleaved inputs(sequences of text, image, audio, and video as inputs) and subsequently generate interleaved output. Interleaved inputs is something GPT does not natively accommodate .
Gemini comes in 3 flavors – Ultra for highly-complex tasks, Pro for enhanced performance and deployability at scale, and Nano for on-device applications. Each size is customized to address different application requirements.
At this time GPT-4 is more widely deployed and leveraged in a number of products, leading to a superior developer support ecosystem making it easier to bring use cases to life. Integrating Gemini into your applications will be possible shortly starting December 13th. There will be some teething pains to over-come but in Gemini is a legitimate option to GPT-4 and the tools will quickly catch-up.
