May 14, 2024 | by The Jeuns

Google has unveiled Project Astra, a new personal AI assistant powered by its Gemini AI technology. This agent-type AI product utilizes Gemini’s multimodality to provide real-time answers to users’ inquiries about the world around them.

Similar to OpenAI’s recent ChatGPT upgrade to GPT-4o, Project Astra offers advanced capabilities that set it apart from its predecessors. A notable advantage of Project Astra was revealed during a demo at Google I/O 2024.

Although Google did not provide a live demonstration of Project Astra, attendees were treated to a recorded demo showcasing the AI assistant in action on a phone. Just like GPT-4o, Project Astra has the ability to perceive and interact with its surroundings, demonstrated by its ability to identify objects in a room and even play music.

The release of Project Astra signals Google’s continued commitment to advancing AI technology and enhancing user experiences. With its cutting-edge capabilities and potential applications, Project Astra is poised to revolutionize the way we interact with AI assistants in the near future.
