Google’s Next Top Model, Will the Cybertruck Crash? and This Week in A.I.

Warning: this episode contains strong language.

Google’s new artificial intelligence model, Gemini, is out. It’s advertised as America’s next top A.I. model. Kevin Roose and Casey Newton ask, Is it really better than OpenAI’s GPT-4? Also, by some estimates, millions of people have preordered Tesla’s Cybertruck, but has Elon Musk’s recent behavior soured people on the brand? And finally, more A.I. news you may have missed.
