Google’s artificial intelligence (AI) subsidiary DeepMind said the company’s future artificial intelligence system will be “more capable” than OpenAI’s ChatGPT.
According to a Wired report, Demis Hassabis, CEO of DeepMind, says the company’s Gemini AI is a large language model (LLM) that uses text similar to ChatGPT processes but will be equipped with new capabilities such as scheduling or problem solving.
The system will be based on the technologies and methods used in AlphaGo, an early artificial intelligence system developed by DeepMind in 2016.
“At a high level, you can think of Gemini as combining some of the strengths of systems like AlphaGo with the amazing language capabilities of larger models.”
He also mentioned that there will be “new innovations” which he considers “quite interesting”. Gemini was first unveiled at the Google I/O Developers Conference in May, along with a number of other AI products.
Cointelegraph reached out to DeepMind for additional comments on the development of Gemini AI.

Hassabis says Gemini is still months away from its official launch and will eventually cost tens or hundreds of millions of dollars to develop.
He says he sees no reason why the things he builds with Gemini “won’t work.”
In addition, DeepMind’s CEO stressed the “urgent” need to further investigate the possible risks associated with more powerful AI systems. Hassabis previously said that we could see human-level artificial intelligence emerge before 2033.
The Gemini news came shortly after Google released its own artificial intelligence chatbot, Bard, which competes with OpenAI’s much-touted ChatGPT. However, Bard faced internal skepticism from ex-Google employees about “taking care of the community.”
The launch of Google Bard in the European Union has already been blocked due to Irish regulators accusing the company of failing to provide the necessary documents.
