Gemini, an advanced AI model developed by DeepMind, represents a significant breakthrough in artificial intelligence with its multimodal capabilities, seamlessly integrating text, images, video, audio, and code processing. It stands out for its exceptional performance, surpassing both GPT-4 and human experts in the Massive Multitask Language Understanding (MMLU) benchmark, and achieving state-of-the-art results across a diverse range of tasks. Gemini is designed in three distinct sizes — Ultra, Pro, and Nano — each optimized for different levels of task complexity, from high-end problem-solving to efficient on-device applications. Its versatility is further exemplified through innovative applications in various domains, including game creation, visual puzzles, and cultural understanding. Additionally, the model is noted for its responsible development approach, integrating ethical considerations and safety measures, reflecting DeepMind's commitment to creating AI that is both powerful and conscientiously developed.

Google Gemini Quick Review

We did some quick tests with Google Bard which uses Gemini Pro according to Google.

Test One · Character recognition

We did upload a movie character image of Jules (from Pulp Fiction) and we received the following answer:

This could be a policy restriction.

Test Two · Image recognition

We did upload the above image to recognize what is on the picture. Gemini did a decent job with it, it recognized the game and some of the chess figures like rook, but it hallucinated some other pieces too. Also the picture isn't grayscale, however it's close to it.

In comparison I also show you the GPT-4 answer to this image. Which was more accurate in terms of objects we can see. Overall it was a very hard task.

Test Three · Reasoning and creative writing

Question: What are effective strategies to address global wealth inequality? Describe the most creative one!

The answer:

Effective Strategies to Address Global Wealth Inequality:

1. Progressive Taxation:

  • Implement progressive income and wealth taxes,where higher earners pay a larger share of their income/wealth.This can help redistribute wealth and fund social programs that benefit the less fortunate.
  • Introduce policies like inheritance taxes or wealth caps to limit the concentration of wealth in the hands of few.

2. Investing in Education and Healthcare:

  • Ensure access to quality education and healthcare for all,regardless of background.This can improve economic mobility and create a more level playing field.
  • Invest in early childhood development programs,which have shown significant long-term benefits in reducing inequality.

3. Strengthening Labor Rights:

  • Increase minimum wages and guarantee worker protections like collective bargaining and paid leave.This can empower workers and increase their share of economic gains.
  • Close loopholes that allow corporations to avoid paying their fair share of taxes.

4. Global Financial Regulations:

  • Implement international regulations on tax havens and money laundering to prevent the illicit flow of wealth.
  • Establish a global minimum corporate tax rate to ensure fairer competition and prevent tax avoidance.

5. Direct Transfers and Social Programs:

  • Provide targeted cash transfers or basic income programs to the poorest individuals and families.
  • Expand access to affordable housing,food assistance,and other essential services.

Creative Strategy:

Global Wealth Redistribution Fund:

  • Establish a global fund financed by contributions from wealthy individuals,corporations,and countries based on their wealth and economic activity.
  • Use the fund to invest in sustainable development projects,provide targeted cash transfers to the poorest populations,and support education and healthcare initiatives in developing countries.
  • This approach leverages the power of collective action to address global inequality and promotes global solidarity and shared prosperity.

Benefits of the Global Wealth Redistribution Fund:

  • Addresses the root causes of poverty and inequality.
  • Empowers individuals and communities to lift themselves out of poverty.
  • Promotes sustainable development and economic growth.
  • Fosters global cooperation and strengthens international relations.

Challenges:

  • Gaining buy-in from wealthy nations and individuals.
  • Ensuring the fund is managed effectively and transparently.
  • Overcoming political and logistical obstacles.

This strategy, while ambitious, has the potential to significantly reduce global wealth inequality and create a more equitable world for all.

The answer didn't impressed me, mostly because of the creative part of the answer wasn't creative at all. I also missed mentioning universal basic income (UBI) as it has relevance in this topic. Google claims that its model is smarter than ChatGPT, but I would argue against this claim based on this answer.

In comparison here is GPT-4's answer:

Addressing global wealth inequality is a complex and multifaceted challenge, requiring a blend of innovative strategies, policies, and collaborative efforts across nations, sectors, and communities. Here are some effective strategies, along with a particularly creative one:

Progressive Taxation: Implementing a more progressive tax system, where the wealthy pay a higher percentage of their income in taxes, can help redistribute wealth. This includes not only income tax but also wealth taxes, inheritance taxes, and capital gains taxes.

Universal Basic Income (UBI): Providing a regular, unconditional sum of money to every citizen can help alleviate poverty and provide a safety net for all, irrespective of employment status. UBI experiments in various countries have shown promising results in reducing poverty and improving quality of life.

Education and Skill Development: Investing in education and skill development can empower individuals from lower-income backgrounds to access better job opportunities, leading to a more equitable distribution of wealth.

Affordable Healthcare: Ensuring access to affordable healthcare prevents people from falling into poverty due to health-related expenses and allows them to remain productive members of the economy.

Debt Relief for Developing Countries: Cancelling or restructuring the debt of developing countries can enable them to invest more in social programs, infrastructure, and education, reducing global inequality.

Encouraging Corporate Responsibility: Incentivizing corporations to pay fair wages, engage in ethical practices, and contribute positively to the communities in which they operate can help distribute wealth more equitably.

Global Cooperation and Regulation: International agreements and regulations to combat tax evasion, offshore banking, and illicit financial flows are crucial in ensuring a fairer distribution of wealth.

Most Creative Strategy: Global Wealth Sharing Network

Imagine a global platform, akin to a ‘Wealth Sharing Network,' where the world's wealthiest individuals and corporations voluntarily contribute a portion of their wealth. This platform would operate transparently and democratically, with contributions distributed to support sustainable development projects, poverty alleviation programs, and innovative educational initiatives worldwide.

The unique aspect of this network would be its engagement with the global community. People from around the world could vote on which projects or initiatives to fund, promoting a sense of global citizenship and collective responsibility. This strategy not only addresses wealth inequality but also fosters a sense of global unity and cooperation. It could be supplemented by a system of rewards and recognition for contributors, encouraging more participation and making philanthropy a more integrated part of global culture.

Test Four · Image generation

Gemini isn't able to generate images like GPT-4 with Dall·E 3. But tries to search relevant images on the web.

Final Thoughts on Gemini

While Gemini should be a ChatGPT competitor, it is really hard to discover the fields that performs better. Text and Multimodal tests are great, but real world problems is another. As Techcrunch already pointed out even the Hand on video of Gemini faked some interactions which couldn't be happen as it is illustrated on the video.

In the upcoming months we will continue using Bard to discover the slight differences between the two AI behemots.
