As Sundar Pichai laughed about Google’s obsession with the word “AI” and how many times it was used during the Google I/O 2024 keynote, it occurred to me that it wasn’t “AI” I was interested in as much as “Gemini.”

The whole two hours felt like a never-ending list of Gemini this and Gemini that, with Gemini Advanced, Pro, Flash, Live, Gems, and many other versions or iterations or sub-implementations of Gemini being mentioned left, right, and center. Oh, it was a doozy, even for someone like me, who is more or less on top of Google’s confusing AI plans.
