Gemini AI demo video was faked
Google admited that a Gemini AI demo video was faked

The video called “Hands-on with Gemini: Interacting with multimodal AI” was edited to speed up the outputs (which was declared in the video description). Also, the implied voice interaction between the human user and the AI was actually non-existent. The actual demo was made by “using still image frames from the footage, and prompting via text”, rather than having Gemini respond to, or even predict, a drawing or change of objects on the table in real time.
