Google increases its bet on AI, with what they call "the next chapter of our Gemini era". 

The company has announced Gemini Ultra, its most powerful AI model, which debuts with Gemini Advanced, the most advanced version of its well-known Bard chatbot, now renamed Gemini.

Specifically, as detailed by the company, Gemini Advanced is even more powerful and capable than previous models and offers a number of new features that make it a perfect tool for anyone who wants to take full advantage of artificial intelligence under the umbrella of the most powerful model, Ultra 1.0. 

"The most powerful model, Ultra 1.0, is the first to outperform human experts in MMLU (massive multitasking language understanding), which uses a combination of 57 subjects - including mathematics, physics, history, law, medicine, and ethics - against which both knowledge and problem-solving skills are tested. Today, we are taking the next step and incorporating Ultra into our products and the world," said Sundar Pichai, CEO of Google and Alphabet.

Google AI aims at ‘reasoning’ 

As detailed, this first version of Gemini Advanced reflects Google's current advances in AI reasoning and will continue to improve as we add new and unique features; Gemini Advanced users can access expanded multimodal capabilities, more interactive coding features, deeper data analysis capabilities, and more.

Gemini Advanced is now available in more than 150 countries in English and will be expanded to more languages in the future.

To use Gemini Advanced, users must subscribe to the new Google One AI Premium plan, which costs the targeted €21.99 monthly. Included in the subscription is 2 TB of storage (in Photos, Gmail, and Drive that the user can share with up to five other people), and soon, users will be able to use Gemini as an intelligent assistant in productivity applications such as Gmail, Docs, Sheets, Slides and Meet, helping them to write, create images for presentations or improve video quality in Meet, Google's video calling service.

The plan also includes other benefits such as more features in Google Meet, with longer group video calls (without a subscription, they are limited to one hour), and in Google Calendar, with the improved appointment calendar.
