🧠 Google’s hands-on Gemini demo was faked

Google's recently unveiled Gemini AI model has sparked varied reactions following its debut. Despite its initial allure, the model's credibility has come into question after revelations that its most impressive demonstrations were essentially staged.

A video titled "Hands-on with Gemini: Interacting with multimodal AI" showcased impressive features such as interpreting language and merging it with visual understanding, in real time. However, it was later revealed that the interactions were not spontaneous but a result of carefully selected text prompts and still images, exaggerating Gemini's capabilities.

While Gemini did generate the responses shown, the video's portrayal of the model's interaction speed and accuracy was misleading, suggesting a level of intuitive understanding that was not truly present.

After the article's publication, Oriol Vinyals, VP of Research at Google DeepMind, shared more details on Twitter about the video's creation. He explained that the video aimed to inspire developers by showcasing “potential” user experiences with Gemini, not the actual product.
The online community has responded as one might expect, criticizing Google for engaging in misleading behavior. Judge for yourself by watching the video below.
