Google has admitted that it showed an edited video demonstrating new capabilities of its Gemini AI model.

Presenting Gemini, Google released a video that amazed many. It shows how the user communicates with artificial intelligence by voice in real time. The chatbot offers surprisingly accurate reasoning by commenting on what it sees using the camera.. For example, it recognizes that the user is drawing a duck even before the drawing is completed, solves logic problems, or reveals the meaning of the demonstrated tricks. At the same time, AI provides short and clear answers very quickly — exactly as if the user was communicating with another person.

Google said it actually edited this video. The description of the YouTube video states that « for the purposes of this demonstration, the latency has been reduced and the Gemini data has been condensed for brevity.»

In a comment to Bloomberg, a Google spokesperson noted that the voice in the demo read out Gemini's pre-generated hints, which the model produced by analyzing still images, not video, as shown in the demo video. In addition, the video also does not indicate that this is a demonstration of an improved version of Gemini ( probably Ultra, which hasn't been released yet).
