Google delays its GPT-4 competitor “Gemini” until next year – Report

Google reportedly postponed the launch of its Gemini multimodal AI model.

This is reported by The Information, citing two sources familiar with the matter. According to the sources, Google has moved the launch events planned for next week in California, New York and Washington to January. The decision was made personally by Google CEO Sundar Pichai.

The delay came after Google engineers noticed that Gemini was less capable of responding to queries in non-English languages. Gemini has reached the level of GPT-4 in some aspects, but apparently still needs to be improved in terms of multilingualism. Smaller versions of Gemini are already being tested, while the large Gemini model is still under development.

It was previously leaked that Google would be delaying the cloud version of Gemini. Now, the AI-powered products, specifically the Bard chatbot, won’t get a Gemini upgrade until next year.

Google CEO Sundar Pichai recently announced a series of next-generation models that Google plans to roll out next year based on Gemini.
