Google’s latest AI iteration, Gemini 1.5, arrives just two months after the debut of Gemini AI. This upgraded model promises significantly improved performance, achieved through the innovative “Mixture-of-Experts architecture” (MoE), where multiple AI models collaborate seamlessly.

Gemini 1.5 Pro, the initial release for testing, stands out with its expansive context window of up to 1 million tokens. In comparison, GPT-4 Turbo, by OpenAI, has a context window capped at 128,000 tokens.

The technical intricacies behind Gemini 1.5’s enhancements are detailed in the announcement post, emphasizing its improved training efficiency and quicker mastery of complex tasks. Plans are underway to extend these upgrades across all major versions of the AI.

Gemini 1.5 Pro’s Performance Demonstrated

Curious about Gemini 1.5 Pro’s capabilities in action? Google has released several videos showcasing the AI’s functionalities, offering intriguing insights into its abilities to analyze and summarize extensive texts based on prompts.

In one demonstration, the AI was given a transcript of the Apollo 11 moon mission, spanning over 400 pages. It effectively identified and summarized “comedic moments” from the mission, showcasing its comprehension and reasoning abilities within just 30 seconds.

Moreover, in another demonstration, the AI accurately pinpointed a specific scene from a 44-minute Buster Keaton movie, guided only by a rough sketch of a water tower provided by the developers. This highlights Gemini 1.5 Pro’s versatility and understanding across different modalities, requiring no additional contextual information beyond the prompt itself.
