Google is potentially planning to unveil Gemini, its rival to GPT-4, in January 2024

Google’s upcoming AI model, Gemini, is set to have multimodal capabilities, enabling it to process diverse types of data, including text, images, and graphs. Initially expected to be unveiled as a competitor to GPT-4, recent reports suggest that the launch date might be postponed to January 2024.

The Information, citing sources, indicates that Gemini encountered challenges with non-English queries, prompting Google CEO Sundar Pichai to delay the release. The report emphasizes the importance of supporting various languages to compete with or surpass OpenAI’s GPT-4, noting that Google has made progress in meeting this standard in some areas.

In a recent statement, Pichai mentioned the company’s focus on releasing Gemini 1.0 promptly while finalizing the largest version of the next-generation AI model. During the Google I/O event in May, the tech giant introduced Gemini as its most powerful model, based on PaLM 2 and developed by the Brain Team and DeepMind. Described as ‘multimodal,’ Gemini is designed to process different types of content, such as images and text, incorporating memory and planning capabilities.
