Google's Gemini: The awaited rival to ChatGPT is here 

One industry poised to benefit significantly from Gemini’s capabilities is the recruitment sector. Multimodal AI can thoroughly assess resumes, cover letters, and video interviews, identifying skills, evaluating communication abilities, and even analyzing body language.

This holistic approach provides recruiters with a well-rounded perspective of potential hires.


Gemini’s exceptional performance shines as it outperforms other models across 50 different subject areas, and in some cases, even surpasses human expertise. Google offers Gemini in three sizes—Ultra, Pro, and Nano—to accommodate varying complexity levels and resource requirements, making it adaptable to a wide array of applications.

Google is actively integrating Gemini into its product ecosystem, a move highlighted by its incorporation into Bard, an AI system known for advanced reasoning, planning, and understanding. This integration represents a substantial upgrade to Bard, now available in English across more than 170 countries and territories, with plans for expansion to support different modalities, languages, and locations in the near future. 

However, the introduction of a versatile multimodal AI model like Gemini presents its own set of challenges. Combining diverse data types can sometimes lead to unintended consequences, including the generation of offensive or harmful content.

To address this, Google will build on its existing AI-Principles, implementing proactive policies and rigorous testing into Gemini’s development to ensure responsible AI practices remain of prime importance. 

When comparing Gemini to existing models like ChatGPT, it’s essential to acknowledge that Gemini’s multimodal capabilities offer distinct advantages. Its ability to process and understand various data types positions it as the superior choice for applications requiring in-depth content comprehension, especially those involving multiple data modalities. 

It is important to note that Gemini and models like ChatGPT are not in direct competition; rather, they complement each other effectively. While ChatGPT enhances user interactions, Gemini excels in providing comprehensive and precise information, allowing them to work synergistically.
