Gemini is an AI ecosystem created by Google that includes a chatbot capable of generating responses based on natural language prompts. Unlike traditional Google searches that provide snippets or links, Gemini delivers responses in natural language by pulling information from the internet. It was announced by Google in February 2023 after OpenAI and Microsoft gained attention for their AI chatbot systems. Gemini offers various capabilities such as summarizing text, comparing items, suggesting recommendations, explaining topics, brainstorming ideas, creating code and text, as well as conducting keyword searches. It can be accessed through the Gemini website and is available in multiple languages. Gemini is free to use and is considered safe, although users should exercise caution and not share personal or private information. Alternative chatbot systems that can also access current internet content include Claude.
