Even if everyone is not paying close attention to the rapid growth of AI, Skytech is here for you! Google recently shocked the industry with release of Gemini which seems to be more capable than ChatGPT and even smarter than humans in understanding and reasoning across diverse subjects. This model, tested on 57 disciplines including math, physics, and law, achieved a score of 90% on the MMLU (massive multitask language understanding) benchmark, exceeding human performance. Wow!
We’ll cover Gemini shortly to sort out the real from the imaginary, yet in the meantime though you should know how simple Google has made it summarize any YouTube video. Since Google owns YouTube, Bard gets superpowers simply by @-mentioning YouTube here (it can also do similar with GMail, Google Maps, Google Flights and more)
All I did was go to bard.google.com and ask it: “@YouTube can you summarize the CES video posted by @skytechio” Here was its simple, formatted, and stunning, response:
