Sergey Brin, co-founder of Google, has returned to the company’s offices to help with the development of their AI model, Gemini. Gemini is a new AI project that is competing against ChatGPT. The program was created by Demis Hassabis of DeepMind and is based on the AlphaGo program, which defeated a champion player of the board game Go in 2016.
There is no mention of how Brin is specifically helping with the development of Gemini, but it is possible that he is providing guidance on coding or helping to keep the project on track for its rumored release in October of this year.
Gemini has already been praised as an AI that could surpass ChatGPT, and it is expected to be used in a variety of Google products, including search, documents, and Google Home.
Brin and co-founder Larry Page are still active on Google as board members.
