Instead, the actual demo was created through “the use of still image frames from shots, and prompting via text,” rather than having Gemini respond to—or even anticipate—a drawing or changing of objects on the table in real time. This is much less impressive than the video wants us to think, and worse, the lack of disclaimer about the actual input method makes Gemini’s preparation somewhat questionable.
Not surprisingly, Google denies any wrongdoing here, she noted the edge To an Given the industry and authorities’ recent interest in artificial intelligence, perhaps the tech giant should be more sensitive about its presentations in this area.
I’m really happy to see the interest in my “Hands-on with Gemini” video. In our dev blog yesterday, we explained how to use Gemini to create it. https://t.co/50gjMkaVc0
We gave Gemini sequences of different modalities – image and text in this case – and made her respond… pic.twitter.com/Beba5M5dHP
