« Back to Glossary Index

Gemini is a chatbot[2] developed and launched by Google[3]. It was born out of Google’s response to OpenAI[4]’s ChatGPT, a popular AI chatbot that posed a potential threat to Google Search[1]. Gemini evolved from an earlier Google project called Bard, an AI chatbot powered by a language model called LaMDA[5]. Bard was first announced and tested in early 2023, and by December of that year, it was upgraded to the Gemini language model. The Gemini project unified Google’s Bard and Duet AI services under one fire[6] in February 2024, complete with an Android app release. Gemini stirred controversy the same month due to its generation of historically inaccurate images. Despite the controversy, Gemini serves as a significant step in Google’s AI chatbot development.

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.
