Hey there, check out our new email format! 💥

Thanks to our valuable community member Roma, an Innovation Manager at Reface, our emails will become bi-weekly. They will contain everything you need to know from both the AI landscape and community happenings! Please cast a vote if you like this format in our Slack.

If you’ve had a rough week — remember that you could be the crisis manager at Google, having to deal with the consequences of the Gemini launch. 🥲 

Roma shared his take on the launch:

So, Google introduced the new model and split it into 3 sub-models: Nano, Pro, and Ultra (seems like they have been studying naming from Apple). 

Nano for running on small devices like mobile phones. Pro for general use cases. And Ultra – the coolest one. 

To be honest, there is nothing to say about Gemini:

  • The video is fake;
  • The context window is 4 times smaller than the GPT-4 Turbo window;
  • No info about costs per 1000 tokens;
  • Benchmarks – meh. Who believes them?
  • The Ultra version, which is supposed to be a competitor to GPT-4, will be shown to the public sometime later.

No worries that GPT-4 has a worthy opponent. It hasn’t (yet). 

I think it’s a huge step for Google, more than for the market. Because one of the essential parts of the announcement is “Scalable and Efficient“. 

I really hope that Google using this fundament can build something huge for end-customers, and soon, we will see useful AI-powered consumer products from this company.
