Improved Gemini 1.5 Pro

Google launched Gemini last December and introduced an initial upgrade for Gemini 1.5 Pro in February. At Google I/O 2024, they announced further enhancements for Gemini 1.5 Pro, focusing on improvements in translation, coding, reasoning, and more. According to Google, these improvements should help tackle broader and more complex tasks.

Introducing Gemini 1.5 Flash

Google also introduced a new, lightweight model called “Gemini 1.5 Flash.” This model is optimized for high-frequency tasks where a faster response time is crucial. It’s faster and more efficient and smaller size compared to Gemini 1.5 Pro, which prioritizes multimodal reasoning and boasts a larger context window of 1 million tokens.

Gemma Updates

Google announced the upcoming release of Gemma 2 in June. This new Gemma AI model promises improved performance and efficiency. It’s optimized for TPUs and GPUs and boasts 27 billion parameters.

PaliGemma: A Vision Language Model

Google unveiled its first Vision Language AI model, PaliGemma. This model is specifically optimized for tasks like image captioning, visual Q&A, and other image labeling tasks.

AI-Powered Google Photos

Google Photos received an AI upgrade with a Gemini AI-powered feature called “Ask Photo.” This feature allows users to recall a picture with a single prompt to the AI. Users can simply ask the AI assistant about any photo or event, and the AI will scan the photo on the gallery and provide relevant results.

VEO: A Text-to-Video Tool

Google introduced a new text-to-video mode called “VEO” to compete with OpenAI’s Sora. VEO allows users to generate videos using text prompts, similar to Sora. Veo is capable of generating 1080p resolution videos with a variety of cinematic and visual styles.

Google revamped its AI search feature for a better user experience. This improved feature provides quick summaries for any search query. It’s still in an experimental stage and known as Google Search Generative Experience (SGE). Additionally, Google introduced AI-organized search results that will categorize results with unique AI-generated headlines.

Project Astra: An AI Assistant for Your Surroundings

Finally, Google introduced Project Astra, a new AI assistant that can identify objects in a room. As shown in a video at the Google I/O event, it can recognize and explain specific parts of code, pinpoint their location by looking outside a window, find a user’s glasses, and even suggest creative names for a dog.

AI in Andriod

Android 15 is getting a boost in artificial intelligence (AI) with features designed to make your life easier. Similar to the helpful Circle Search tool, Google is bringing AI-powered homework assistance to the platform. This, along with a new on-device AI model called Gemini Nano, paves the way for even more exciting features.

Imagine asking questions directly related to YouTube videos you’re watching or generating images right within Gmail – all powered by AI on your device. Accessibility is also getting an upgrade with clearer TalkBack descriptions, and for improved security, Android 15 will now warn you of potential scams during phone calls.


These are just some of the exciting AI updates Google unveiled at the Google I/O event 2024. We see significant improvements in AI advancement, with Google integrating its Gemini AI model into many of its products. Interestingly, Google introduced VEO to compete with OpenAI’s Sora and Project Astra to challenge the new GPT-4o model. The future of AI looks bright, and Google is at the forefront of these advancements.
