Google Launches New Artificial Intelligence Model Gemini 1.5 Flash

Gemini 1.5 Flash has long-context understanding that can process hours of video, audio, thousands of words or lines of code



Google on Tuesday introduced its new artificial intelligence (AI) model that it said is faster and more efficient for AI assistants.

The new Gemini 1.5 Flash model is lighter-weight than its predecessor Gemini 1.5 Pro which was introduced in February, following the first natively multimodal Gemini 1.0 that was launched in December 2023.

Google dubbed Gemini 1.5 Flash as a lightweight model that is optimized for speed and efficiency, which is suitable for the vast majority of developer and enterprise use cases.

It has a long-context understanding that can process hours of video and audio, and hundreds of thousands of words or lines of code, according to the company.


“Flash has a one-million-token context window by default, which means you can process one hour of video, 11 hours of audio, codebases with more than 30,000 lines of code, or over 700,000 words,” according to its website.

Developers can integrate Gemini models into their applications with Google AI Studio and Google Cloud Vertex AI.

Gemini 1.5 Flash by Google came a day after Microsoft-backed OpenAI unveiled its new model GPT-4o which is said to be much faster compared to its previous ones, as the competition in the AI industry heats up.

Google in late February had temporarily suspended Gemini’s ability to generate images after receiving criticism on social media platforms.
