Gemini Pro

According to this article:

Google Bard, Pixel 8 Pro now come powered with new Gemini AI model. Here’s what you should know

Google Bard AI chatbot is now being powered by Gemini Pro language model and it might just be better than ChatGPT. So they said. 

I also found this Reddit post 

Where a Redditor tested  Gemini Pro language on various parameters and I was like: 

“Hmm, I might just do the same.”

Which is what this article is about – me doing my own tests.

My guide for testing the Google Bard AI chatbot powered by Gemini Pro is this post:

5 Tasks ChatGPT Does Best: And 5 It Can’t

According to it, there are 5 tasks ChatGPT can do correctly:

  1. Automate Tasks and Workflows
  2. Act as a coding assistant
  3. Be a search engine
  4. Create content
  5. Generate movie scripts, stories and song lyrics. 

I will be using these “parameters” to test Gemini Pro. 

Testing Gemini Pro

Task 1: Try to automate tasks and workflows

Schedule a meeting: I asked it to schedule a meeting and it told me to fill out the following information:

Which I did and it gave me this back:

I tried to give Google Bard access to my Google Calendar but failed. It had something to do with the email – @bard.google.com. Maybe it is from my end or something they will have to work on. 

Manage my overflowing inbox: It didn’t work—the same email problem.

Task 2: Act as a coding assistant

I am not even going to pretend I know how to code which is why I chose to ask Bard to write the code for a website that looks like this:

Gemini Pro

And it came up with this code:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
  <title>Magic 8 Ball</title>
  <style>
    body {
      font-family: sans-serif;
      text-align: center;
    }

    .magic-8-ball {
      width: 200px;
      height: 200px;
      background-color: black;
      border-radius: 100%;
      margin: 0 auto;
    }

    .magic-8-ball-text {
      color: white;
      font-size: 24px;
      font-weight: bold;
      line-height: 200px;
      text-align: center;
    }

    .ask-button {
      width: 100px;
      height: 50px;
      background-color: blue;
      color: white;
      font-size: 16px;
      font-weight: bold;
      margin: 0 auto;
      margin-top: 20px;
    }
  </style>
</head>
<body>
  <h1>Magic 8 Ball</h1>

  <div class="magic-8-ball">
    <span class="magic-8-ball-text">Ask me anything!</span>
  </div>

  <button class="ask-button">Ask</button>

  <script>
    // Get the magic 8 ball element
    const magic8Ball = document.querySelector('.magic-8-ball');

    // Get the ask button element
    const askButton = document.querySelector('.ask-button');

    // Add an event listener to the ask button
    askButton.addEventListener('click', () => {
      // Generate a random response
      const responses = [
        'Of course!',
        'Maybe.',
        'No way.',
        'Try again later.',
        'Ask your mom.',
        'I don\'t know.',
      ];

      const randomResponse = responses[Math.floor(Math.random() * responses.length)];

      // Display the response in the magic 8 ball
      magic8Ball.querySelector('.magic-8-ball-text').textContent = randomResponse;
    });
  </script>
</body>
</html>

I tried this on Visual Studio Code, and I got: 

Gemini Pro

Not so bad. It wasn’t as fancy as the example but it got the job done.

Task 3: Be a search engine

This is one task I think it would do perfectly well. I have a bunch of questions to ask:

  1. What to watch?: it gave me several options of the most popular shows on all streaming platforms. 
  2. What time is it?: Friday, December 8, 2023 at 8:40 PM Pacific Standard Time (PST)
  3. Who is the richest person in the world?:
  1. Who escaped from Alcatraz?:
  1. How many weeks in a year?:

Task 4: Create content

I asked Bard to write content for “The Secret Live of Tilapia Fishes” – 100 words only.

Not so bad, right?

Task 5: Generate movie scripts, stories and song lyrics

For my final task, I asked Google Bard to come up with a movie script for a movie called “The Mud Man”. A short film of 5 minutes. 

It came up with a story all right.

As for song lyrics, it gave me this:

Final Thoughts

So there you have it. Google Bard is kind of capable. Not the most creative but capable still.
