Google is giving away some of the AI that powers chatbots

·1 min

Google has followed in the footsteps of Meta by releasing the computer code powering its online chatbot. The technology, called a large language model, has been made available to outside companies and independent developers. Google hopes that these models, named Gemma 2B and Gemma 7B, will become industry standards. However, the company has no plans to release its flagship AI model, Gemini, due to its higher effectiveness and potential for harm. Google’s decision to release their AI technologies again was driven by developer interest. Concerns remain that bad actors may misuse these technologies.
