Gemini Pro, Google’s 1M+ Token Context LLM

Google has launched Gemini 1.5 Pro, a powerful AI tool with advanced capabilities, including audio understanding, almost unlimited file handling, and an expanded 1 million context window.

Notable among these updates are native audio understanding and a new File API, which simplifies file management. The update also introduces system instructions and JSON mode, allowing for more precise control over model outputs, and a new text embedding model that delivers superior performance compared to existing models.

Gemini 1.5 Pro now supports audio and video inputs, enabling applications like converting lecture recordings into quizzes with answer keys (as seen in the example below)

Upload a recording of a lecture, like this 117,000+ token lecture from Jeff Dean, and Gemini 1.5 Pro can turn it into a quiz with an answer key.

The update also addresses top developer requests by including system instructions for guiding model responses, JSON mode for structured data extraction, and enhanced function calling modes for improved output reliability.

Developers can access the new text embedding model, text-embedding-004, which outperforms comparable models on the MTEB benchmarks, offering stronger retrieval performance. These enhancements are part of Google's ongoing efforts to make Google AI Studio and the Gemini API the best tools for building with Gemini. For more information, developers are encouraged to visit Google AI Studio, explore the Gemini API Cookbook, and join the community discussion on Discord.
