Get to Know Gemini: Google's Largest AI Model

Today, let's get to know Google Gemini! This is one of the AI models developed to meet the diverse and complex needs of users, with capabilities surpassing previous AI models. We'll take a look at what Google Gemini is, its cool features, how to use it, and some precautions to be aware of before using it.

What is Google Gemini?

Google Gemini is a large language model (LLM) developed by Google in a multi-modal fashion. It can understand and interact with human language comprehensively, and it can process various types of data, including text, images, audio, video, and even code.

Simply put, this is another AI service designed for use similar to the famous Chat GPT. However, the difference lies in that this AI is developed by Google. And, of course, being developed by Google, the world’s leading search service provider, it is guaranteed to be extraordinary.

How is Gemini Pronounced?

In the launch video by Google, Gemini is pronounced "Je-mi-nai" rather than "Ji-mi-ni." Its old name was Bard, which some people might have forgotten. The name "Gemini" not only sounds good but also comes from the name of a constellation, symbolizing the ability to work in parallel or collaborate efficiently. Even the name is luxurious!

How to Use Google Gemini?

  1. Sign Up: Go to the Google Gemini website and sign up using your Google account.

  2. Choose a Model: There are two main models to choose from: Gemini and Gemini Advanced. Select the model that suits your usage needs.

  3. Get Started: Once you have chosen a model, you can start using it through the website by typing your questions, commands, or the content you want. However, the bad news is that Google Gemini is not yet available for download on the Play Store or iOS in Thailand as an application.
