Gemini, a chatbot crafted and unveiled by Google[2], is a direct counter to OpenAI’s ChatGPT, a renowned AI chatbot that could potentially rival Google Search[1]. This AI chatbot took its roots from a preceding Google initiative named Bard, powered by a language model known as LaMDA. Bard was initially introduced and trialed in early 2023, and by the year’s end, it transitioned into the Gemini language model. In February 2024, the Gemini project amalgamated Google’s Bard and Duet AI services into a single brand, marked by the launch of an Android app. That same month, Gemini sparked a dispute due to its creation of historically incorrect images. Regardless of the dispute, Gemini marks a crucial milestone in Google’s journey of AI chatbot evolution.

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.
