Today we introduced Gemini, our largest and most capable AI model — and the next step on our journey toward making AI helpful for everyone. Built from the ground up to be multimodal, Gemini can generalize and seamlessly understand, operate across and combine different types of information, including text, images, audio, video and code. This means it has sophisticated multimodal reasoning and advanced coding capabilities. And with three different sizes — Ultra, Pro and Nano — Gemini has the flexibility to run on everything from data centers to mobile devices. We trained Gemini at scale on our AI-optimized infrastructure using Google's Tensor Processing Units (TPUs) v4 and v5e. Today, we also announced our most powerful and scalable TPU system to date, Cloud TPU v5p.

Gemini is available in some of our core products starting today: Bard is using a fine-tuned version of Gemini Pro for more advanced reasoning, planning, understanding and more. Pixel 8 Pro is the first smartphone engineered for Gemini Nano, using it in features like Summarize in Recorder and Smart Reply in Gboard. And we’re already starting to experiment with Gemini in Search, where it's making our Search Generative Experience (SGE) faster. Early next year, we’ll bring Gemini Ultra to a new Bard Advanced experience. And in the coming months, Gemini will power features in more of our products and services like Ads, Chrome and Duet AI.

Android developers who want to build Gemini-powered apps on-device can now sign up for an early preview of Gemini Nano, our most efficient model, via Android AICore. Starting December 13, developers and enterprise customers will be able to access Gemini Pro via the Gemini API in Vertex AI or Google AI Studio, our free web-based developer tool. And as we continue to refine Gemini Ultra, including completing extensive trust and safety checks, we’ll make it available to select groups before opening it up broadly to developers and enterprise customers early next year.

Explore the collection to learn more about our newest model, and the start of the Gemini era.
