Gemini, Google’s highly anticipated and complex artificial intelligence model, has encountered a delay in its launch, pushing the release to early 2024. The delay reportedly stems from concerns about the AI’s performance in responding to non-English prompts and inquiries.

The rescheduling of launch events in New York, Washington, and California was done quietly, and Google representatives have yet to comment on these developments.

Gemini represents the next generation of AI, boasting multimodal capabilities that enable it to process various data types. It can understand and generate text, images, and other content, such as websites, based on descriptions or sketches. Despite not being available for public use, it’s been suggested that Gemini surpasses OpenAI’s GPT-4 due to its significantly higher computing power.

Sissie Hsiao, Google’s VP and manager of Bard and Google Assistant, previously expressed excitement about Gemini’s capabilities, highlighting its ability to create custom images in response to specific requests, such as providing step-by-step visuals for baking a cake. Hsiao noted that Gemini generates entirely new images rather than retrieving them from the internet, demonstrating its capacity to communicate with humans through imagery, not just text.

Although Google already possesses its own generative AI model, Bard, Gemini’s imminent launch could potentially shift consumer awareness. Analysts anticipate that Gemini’s release might alter the landscape, potentially eclipsing the popularity of ChatGPT and other existing AI models.
