Google Just Launched Gemini, Its Long-Awaited Answer To ChatGPT

In the AI race, Google's Gemini steps up the game. This multimodal AI, adept at processing text, images, and video, is Google's play to reclaim AI dominance. With the initial rollout in Bard and upcoming integrations across Google's suite, including a developer-friendly API, Gemini's potential is palpable. Demis Hassabis of Google DeepMind captures the sentiment: "It's a big moment for us."

Gemini's versions—Ultra, Nano, and Pro—each serve distinct purposes, with Pro already enhancing Bard's capabilities. Google's confidence is backed by Gemini outperforming GPT-3.5 in several benchmarks. Eli Collins of DeepMind notes, "Gemini is state-of-the-art across a wide range of benchmarks." The question lingers: How will this technological leap affect the broader AI ecosystem? wired

Respeecher’s Ethics-First Approach To AI Voice Cloning Locks In New Funding

Respeecher's voice cloning technology is carving out a niche in a crowded market. The Ukrainian startup's recent $1 million in funding underscores a commitment to ethical practices in a field rife with controversy. Known collaborations with giants like Star Wars and CD Projekt highlight Respeecher's prowess. Unlike competitors, they focus on refining actors' voices, not just generating new ones—think prosthetic voices, not digital fabrications.

Ethical considerations are paramount; Respeecher navigates the nuanced territory of posthumous consent with diligence. "Consent is obtained from those who own the rights," CEO Alex Serdiuk emphasizes. This approach is attracting voice actors to see their voices as assets rather than threats. Partnerships with Adobe's Content Authenticity Initiative further cement their reputation for integrity. Despite the turmoil in Kyiv, Respeecher's resilience shines, expanding into meaningful arenas like aiding individuals who've lost their voices. techcrunch
