Gemini is an artificial intelligence[1] (AI) chatbot[4] developed by Google[5]. Launched in 2024, it’s a fusion of two earlier AI projects, Bard and Duet AI. The creation of Gemini was largely a response to the popularity of OpenAI[6]’s ChatGPT. It was initially tested by a select group of 10,000 users before its official release. Gemini is integrated into Google Search[2], providing users with a conversational AI assistant. It gained global attention and was showcased at the 2023 Google I/O keynote. However, Gemini’s reception was mixed, with some controversies surrounding its output. It also features in an Android app launched in February 2024. Despite challenges, Gemini represents an important step in the ongoing development of AI technology[3].

Terms definitions
1. artificial intelligence.
1 Artificial Intelligence (AI) refers to the field of computer science that aims to create systems capable of performing tasks that would normally require human intelligence. These tasks include reasoning, learning, planning, perception, and language understanding. AI draws from different fields including psychology, linguistics, philosophy, and neuroscience. The field is prominent in developing machine learning models and natural language processing systems. It also plays a significant role in creating virtual assistants and affective computing systems. AI applications extend across various sectors including healthcare, industry, government, and education. Despite its benefits, AI also raises ethical and societal concerns, necessitating regulatory policies. AI continues to evolve with advanced techniques such as deep learning and generative AI, offering new possibilities in various industries.
2 Artificial Intelligence, commonly known as AI, is a field of computer science dedicated to creating intelligent machines that perform tasks typically requiring human intellect. These tasks include problem-solving, recognizing speech, understanding natural language, and making decisions. AI is categorised into two types: narrow AI, which is designed to perform a specific task, like voice recognition, and general AI, which can perform any intellectual tasks a human being can do. It's a continuously evolving technology that draws from various fields including computer science, mathematics, psychology, linguistics, and neuroscience. The core concepts of AI include reasoning, knowledge representation, planning, natural language processing, and perception. AI has wide-ranging applications across numerous sectors, from healthcare and gaming to military and creativity, and its ethical considerations and challenges are pivotal to its development and implementation.
2. Google Search ( Google Search )
1 Google Search is a powerful internet search engine developed by Google.

Google Search has continuously evolved since its launch in 2012, with significant algorithm upgrades like Caffeine and Medic aimed at enhancing speed, relevance, and user-friendliness. It offers various features including SafeSearch, PageRank, and Google Discover to refine and personalize search results. Its interface comprises rich snippets and cards, and a knowledge graph for detailed results. Despite reports of declining search results quality in recent years, Google continues to combat spam and improve its core algorithms. The platform also offers an array of tools for searching web pages, images, news, and videos. Google Search is widely used worldwide and has spawned an industry of search engine optimization consultants.
Gemini (chatbot) (Wikipedia)

Gemini, formerly known as Bard, is a generative artificial intelligence chatbot developed by Google. Based on the large language model (LLM) of the same name and developed as a direct response to the meteoric rise of OpenAI's ChatGPT, it was launched in a limited capacity in March 2023 before expanding to other countries in May. It was previously based on PaLM, and initially the LaMDA family of large language models.

LaMDA had been developed and announced in 2021, but it was not released to the public out of an abundance of caution. OpenAI's launch of ChatGPT in November 2022 and its subsequent popularity caught Google executives off-guard and sent them into a panic, prompting a sweeping response in the ensuing months. After mobilizing its workforce, the company launched Bard in February 2023, which took center stage during the 2023 Google I/O keynote in May and was upgraded to the Gemini LLM in December. Bard and Duet AI were unified under the Gemini brand in February 2024, coinciding with the launch of an Android app.

Gemini has received lukewarm responses. It became the center of controversy in February 2024, when social media users and conservative commentators reported that it was generating historically inaccurate images of historical figures as people of color.
