Gemma is a more lightweight, more accessible version of Google's generative AI tool Gemini.

In a move that could shake up the AI landscape, Google today released "Gemma," a family of open-weight language models designed to be lightweight and accessible to a wider range of users. Inspired by the research behind their powerful Gemini models, Gemma offers state-of-the-art capabilities while requiring significantly less computational resources.


Available in two versions with 2 billion and 7 billion parameters, Gemma caters to the needs of individuals and organizations with varying levels of computing power. This democratizes access to cutting-edge AI technology, previously limited to those with powerful infrastructure.


Gemma's potential applications are vast, ranging from building chatbots and content generation tools to powering research and development across various industries. Developers and researchers can leverage Gemma's capabilities for tasks like:

  • Generating creative text formats: Gemma can write different kinds of creative content, like poems, code, scripts, musical pieces, email, letters, etc.

  • Answering your questions in an informative way: Ask Gemma anything and get comprehensive and informative answers.

  • Translating languages: Gemma can translate between multiple languages.

  • Writing different kinds of creative content: Let Gemma help you write poems, code, scripts, musical pieces, email, letters, etc.


To ensure responsible use of this powerful technology, Google also released the Responsible Generative AI Toolkit alongside Gemma. This toolkit provides developers with resources and best practices for building safe and ethical AI applications.
