Google has introduced an upgraded version of its AI chatbot, known as ‘Bard Advanced,’ which is powered by the advanced large language model (LLM) called Gemini Ultra. This enhanced iteration promises a more sophisticated and interactive experience for users, offering advanced math and reasoning skills.
Developer Dylan Roussel revealed the upcoming availability of ‘Bard Advanced’ through a paid subscription on Google One. Users can enjoy a complimentary three-month trial of the new AI chatbot, showcasing Google’s commitment to pushing the boundaries of AI innovation.
Described as a “more capable large language model,” ‘Bard Advanced’ is designed to provide users with a multifaceted experience. While still under development, developer Bedros Pamboukian highlighted Google’s ongoing efforts towards an “advanced” tier, emphasizing the tech giant’s dedication to AI advancement.
Notably, Google recently made Gemini Pro available to developers and enterprises, aiming to facilitate tailored solutions for intricate tasks. Additionally, the company introduced Google AI Studio, a free web-based developer tool, streamlining prompt development and API key acquisition for application development.
Developers currently enjoy free access to Gemini Pro and Gemini Pro Vision through Google AI Studio, accommodating up to 60 requests per minute. Looking ahead, Google’s roadmap includes the launch of Gemini Ultra in the early months of the coming year. This release, described as Google’s most robust model tailored for highly complex tasks, will undergo meticulous fine-tuning, safety evaluations, and partner feedback. Moreover, Google plans to expand Gemini’s accessibility across developer platforms such as Chrome and Firebase, amplifying its reach and impact.
“Early next year, we’ll launch Gemini Ultra, our largest and most capable model for highly complex tasks, after further fine-tuning, safety testing and gathering valuable feedback from partners. We’ll also bring Gemini to more of our developer platforms like Chrome and Firebase,” said Google.
