About Google Gemini

Google has introduced Gemini, a groundbreaking artificial intelligence model that boasts superior capabilities in understanding, summarizing, reasoning, coding, and planning compared to other AI models.

The Gemini model is offered in three versions: Pro, Ultra, and Nano. The Pro version is already available, while the Ultra version is slated for release early next year.

Gemini has been seamlessly integrated with Google’s chatbot Bard, a direct competitor to ChatGPT. Users can now engage in text-based interactions with the Gemini-powered Bard.

Although currently limited to English, Google has assured users in 170 countries and territories, including India, that the new update is accessible. The capabilities of Gemini can be experienced through the Google Bard chatbot.

Gemini Nano is now available on Pixel 8 Pro, introducing enhanced features like summarization in the Recorder app and Smart Reply on Gboard.

Meanwhile, Gemini Pro can be accessed for free within Bard, offering users the opportunity to explore its advanced text-based capabilities.

Gemini Ultra achieved a remarkable 90.0% on the MMLU (massive multitask language understanding) test, encompassing subjects like math, physics, history, law, medicine, and ethics, assessing both knowledge and problem-solving capabilitie

Limitations of Google Gemini

While Gemini Pro integrated into Bard brings promising advancements, it’s crucial to be aware of certain limitations:

Language Limitation: Gemini Pro is currently available only in English, limiting its accessibility on a global scale.

Integration Constraints: Although Bard has embraced Gemini Pro, its integration within the chatbot is presently limited. Google is anticipated to enhance integration and refine the AI capabilities in the coming updates.

Geographical Constraints: Gemini Pro is not available in the European Union, imposing geographical limitations on its usage.

Text-Based Version Only: As of now, only the text-based version of Gemini Pro is accessible within Bard. Users seeking multimedia interactions may need to await future updates for a more diverse range of features

What is Project IDX?

Google rolled out Project IDX as its experimental initiative aimed to bring developers’ entire full-stack, multiplatform app development workflow to the cloud.

Project IDX is simply an Integrated Development Environment (IDE). This can be considered a super IDE, which is an AI-powered browser-based development experience on Google Cloud powered by Codey. Codey is an AI coding bot that uses Natural Language Processing (NLP) to write code based on user input. It is trained on code and built on Google’s large language model, PaLM2.

Google's AI-integrated coding environment

  • Project IDX is Google's new tool for developers, providing a web-based workspace for coding and app development.
  • Integrating AI into Project IDX powers features like an assistive chatbot, code completion, and contextual code actions.

Unique features of Project IDX

  • Project IDX is an AI-powered browser-based tool, featuring an AI coding bot called Codey.
  • Codey uses Natural Language Processing to write code based on user input.
  • Developers can access Project IDX online from anywhere, making it a flexible development solution.
  • Project IDX supports popular frameworks like Flutter and Angular.
  • It also includes a wholly configured Android emulator and an embedded iOS simulator.
  • Project IDX is designed to make app development easier and more accessible.

Future plans for Project IDX

  • Project IDX is currently on a waitlist, but it is expected to be beginner-friendly and available on the cloud.
  • Additional language support, including Python and Go, will be added in the future.

Discussion on the future of development tools

  • The launch of Project IDX has sparked a discussion on the rivalry between tech giants in the development tools space.

However, Project IDX is currently on a waitlist. If you have ever thought of creating an app or software, Project IDX will be the right choice, as it is expected to be a beginner-friendly workshop on the cloud.

Google SketchUp 8

Here are the features that Google is providing with this SketchUp software. Because almost everything is somewhere. By using this everyone can do 3D Modeling.

Whether you're designing in context, creating a shadow study or photo-modeling existing structures, SketchUp 8 provides easy access to Google's huge collection of geographic resources.

  • add-geo-location
    Model geo-location with Google Maps

    We've built Maps right into SketchUp. Adding a geo-location to your model is now an elegant, one-app process.

  • color-terrain
    Color imagery and more accurate terrain

    The snapshot you get when you add a geo-location to your model now includes 3D terrain data that's more accurate, and -- for the first time -- aerial imagery in color.
