Google Launches Gemini with Paid 'Ultra' Tier

Google Gemini
Is Google's AI assistant getting a makeover? 

Could Gemini revolutionize Google's AI?

Would you pay to access cutting-edge AI power for a monthly fee? 

Here's a Cool Tip.  Check out the newly renamed Google Gemini.

Google has rebranded its AI service Bard to Gemini and launched an all-new Gemini Advanced service.

This change aligns with the name of the powerful Large Language Model (LLM) underlying the tech, Gemini Ultra. 

Enhanced responses, creative text generation, and advanced problem-solving abilities are expected benefits.
  • Gemini Pro: The standard Gemini model provides enhanced responses and the capability to understand various nuances.
  • Gemini Ultra: This is the most advanced Gemini model. Its strengths include highly complex problem-solving, creative generation, and deeper data analysis abilities. Gemini Ultra forms the basis of Gemini Advanced.
  • Gemini Advanced: A subscription-based service built on top of Gemini Ultra. It includes exclusive features, expanded multimodal capabilities, and will continue to see updates with newer and more powerful AI models.
This paid service is similar to OpenAI's ChatGPT and Microsoft's Copilot AI services.

All are priced at roughly $20 per month.

Potential Benefits of Gemini Ultra
  • A student with complex homework questions.
  • A marketer seeking new ad copy ideas.
  • A musician wanting help with lyrics.
Possible Concerns
  • Will $19.99/month be worth it for most users? Free plans will likely still exist.
  • Ethical use and guarding against biased responses is key.
  • Disinformation spread due to Ultra's powerful language capabilities.
  • Over-reliance on AI and reduced critical thinking skills.

Google Gemini is available at:

Expect Gemini to roll out through various Google products and services in the coming months. 

For now, curious users can use free versions to evaluate the potential.

Paid-tier models could shape how we interact with technology. 

Try the free Gemini and let us know if YOU would pay to upgrade.

Forget Flashcards, Meet Your AI Brain Buddy: How to Master Google NotebookLM

Have you ever wondered how you could streamline your notetaking process with the power of AI? 

Are you drowning in research papers? 

Buried in PDFs? 

Say goodbye to information overload and hello to your personalized AI learning assistant.

Here's a Cool Tip.   Use the new Google NotebookLM!

Google NotebookLM is an experimental AI-powered note-taking app that aims to revolutionize how we process and retain information. 

It uses the power of Google's Gemini Pro language model to analyze your uploaded documents (PDFs, research papers, even textbooks) and create a personalized understanding of their content.

Here's how to do it.
  • Go to the website.
    • Be sure you are logged into your Google account.
    • Select "New Notebook".
  • Add your first source:
    • Upload up to 10 documents, which may include Google Docs, PDFs from your computer, or any text content that is less than 50,000 words.
  • Once your sources are uploaded, you can ask questions about the documents you’ve uploaded.
    • Ask questions about your source to explain, summarize and provide insight.
    • Save answers to your notebook.

Here's an example where I loaded a copy of President Abraham Lincoln's famous Gettysburg Address as a PDF into NotebookLM.

Lincoln Gettysburg Address
fig. 1 - Lincoln Gettysburg Address

Once the data is loaded into your NotebookLM notebook, you can then ask questions about your material.

For example, I asked "How does Lincoln use historical context to support his argument in the Gettysburg Address?"

NotebookLM provided the following:

  • He starts the speech by referencing the "four score and seven years ago" when U.S. was founded on the ideals of Liberty and equality.
  • He connects the Civil War to these founding principles by posing the question of whether any nation based on these principles can endure.
  • He reminds the audience of the sacrifices made by the soldiers at Gettysburg to uphold these principles.
  • He urges the living to rededicate themselves to these ideals and ensure that the sacrifices of the soldiers were not in vain.

By clicking the pin icon, I can save that answer into the notebook.

NotebookLM can provide personalized learning with tailored summaries, questions, and even writing styles based on your uploaded materials.

It is a great example of the power and usefulness of AI.

Are you ready to unleash the power of AI learning?

Remember, this is a Google experiment and feature can change.

And, as with any AI, triple check all answers and do not upload sensitive or proprietary information.

Unlock Google Bard - Now Powered with Gemini Pro

Google Bard - Gemini Pro
Have you ever wondered how to make the most out of your Google Bard experience? 

Are you ready to unleash the full potential of Google Bard, the revolutionary AI platform? 

Here's a Cool Tip.  Try Google Bard which is now powered by Gemini Pro.

Yes, Google Bard is now powered by the Gemini Pro Large language Model (LLM). 

It's available for free in Bard, allowing users to experience its text-based capabilities. 

Gemini Pro makes Bard better at Understanding, Summarizing, Reasoning, Coding and Planning

Google Bard - Powered by Gemini

Here's how to use it.
  • Navigate to the Google Bard website.
  • Log in with your Google account.
  • Type anything you want to ask.
  • Bard replies using the power of Gemini Pro.
Note:   Bard only supports the text-based version of Gemini Pro. You'll have to wait for multimedia interactions in future updates. 

With the release of Gemini Pro, users now have access to a range of advanced features that promise to enhance productivity, creativity, and information access. 

In the previous version of Bard, a prompt to ask Bard to generate basic text formats like poems, scripts, and musical pieces often lacked originality and coherence.

Gemini produces outputs that are more original, engaging, and consistent with the style and tone requested.

Here's an example to request Bard to write a poem about the beauty of nature.

Old Bard
The flowers are blooming, 
The birds are singing, 
The sun is shining. 
Nature is beautiful.

Gemini Pro:
Beneath the sun's warm gaze,
A canvas stretched so wide,
The earth awakes, a masterpiece,
Where vibrant colors hide.

The improvement is dramatic.

In addition to Gemini Pro, Google also announced a version for mobile devices, Gemini Nano, and
a version for highly complex tasks called Gemini Ultra,

Both will be available at a later date.

So check Gemini Pro out and see the difference.

It's available in English in the US but will roll out to other languages and countries in the future.

Google AI Opens Up to Teenagers

Google Bard
Are you a teenager?

Are you the parent of a teenager?

Here's a Cool Tip.  Google's AI-powered chatbot, Bard, is now accessible to teenagers.

This opens doors to a world of creative exploration, knowledge expansion, and problem-solving.

Google originally restricted use of the Bard AI service to adults.

But before you dive into this exciting new tool, let's take a moment to understand how Bard works, its benefits and drawbacks, and how to make the most of it.

Imagine having a personal AI companion that can help you brainstorm ideas for your next creative project, research topics for school assignments, or even assist you with homework. 

That's what Bard brings to the table. 

With its ability to generate text, translate languages, and answer questions in an informative way,  Bard can become your go-to source for inspiration and learning.

Here's how to use it.
  • If you're a teenager, make sure you have your own Google Account, as Bard access is restricted to those who meet the minimum age requirement.
  • Head over to the Bard website ,, and sign in using your Google Account.
  • Once logged in, you'll be greeted by Bard's interface. 
  • Start by exploring the various prompts and examples provided to get a feel for how Bard works.

Google Bard

fig. 1 - Google Bard

What can you do as a teenager using Bard?
  • Creative writing: Ask Bard to help you write a poem, a short story, or a song.
  • Language translation: Translate a text from one language to another.
  • Math problem solver: Type or upload a picture of a math equation, and Bard will provide a step-by-step explanation of how to solve it.
  • Research assistance: Ask Bard to research a topic for a school assignment or gather information on a particular subject.

Like any AI tool, Bard can be misused to generate inappropriate content or spread misinformation. It's crucial to exercise caution and be mindful of ethical considerations while using Bard.

Overdependence on AI tools can hinder the development of critical thinking and independent learning skills.

To ensure a safe and responsible experience for teenagers, Google has implemented several safety measures within Bard. 

Bard has been trained to identify and avoid topics inappropriate for younger users, and it incorporates safety guardrails to prevent the generation of responses involving illegal or age-gated substances.

In recognition that some individuals, including teenagers, may not be fully aware of potential hallucinations in large language models (LLMs), Bard automatically employs a "double-check response" feature when a teenager asks a fact-based question for the first time. 

This feature assesses whether there is corroborating evidence on the web to support Bard's response. 

This feature will soon be automatically activated for all new Bard users when they ask their first factual question. 

For teenagers specifically, Google actively encourages the use of the double-check feature to foster the development of information literacy and critical thinking skills.

Bard has released the following video for getting started with Generative AI.

That's it.

Use AI to Settle the Superman vs. Batman Debate

Ever wondered who would win in a fight between Superman and Batman? 

Have you ever wished you could settle this age-old debate once and for all? 

Here's a Cool Tip:  Let AI, Artificial Intelligence, help answer this question.

Here's how to do it:

  • Start by selecting the AI you want to use, for example, ChatGPT, Google Bard or  Microsoft Bing.
  • Formulate your question as an AI prompt. For example, "Superman vs. Batman. Who wins a fight?".
  • Ask your question to one or more AIs. 
  • Once you have responses from all AIs, analyze them to see which superhero they think would win in a fight.
S vs B
fig. 1 - Who Would Win?

Here's a Summary of the three big AIs to this question:


In the comics, the two have fought multiple times, and the outcomes vary depending on the context. For instance, in Frank Miller's "The Dark Knight Returns," an older Batman dons a power suit and utilizes Kryptonite to even the odds against Superman. In other stories, Superman's sheer power and speed are just too much for Batman.

So, who would win depends largely on the circumstances of the fight and the interpretation of the characters at that specific time.

Google Bard

So, who would win in a fight between Superman and Batman? It really depends on the circumstances. If the fight is fair and square, Superman would almost certainly win. But if Batman has time to prepare, he could potentially find a way to defeat Superman.

Microsoft Bing

In terms of who would win in a fight, it ultimately depends on the circumstances and the strategies employed by each character. Batman’s resourcefulness, combat skills, and access to Kryptonite could potentially give him an edge over Superman. However, Superman’s superhuman strength and durability make him a formidable opponent.

AIs are not infallible and their responses are based on the information they have been trained on. 

They do not have personal opinions or biases.

So what other matchups should you check out?

  • Iron Man vs. Batman
  • Godzilla vs. King Kong
  • Avengers vs. Justice League
  • Lassie vs. Scooby Doo

So, are you ready to use artificial intelligence to settle the debate?
