Gemma supports tools that are frequently used by Google Cloud developers, including Colab and Kaggle notebooks. It also supports frameworks such as JAX, PyTorch, Keras 3.0, and Hugging Face Transformers. Google says Gemma can run on a laptop, workstation, or on Google Cloud. “With these new open models, developers can now build with and customize in Vertex AI and run it on Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE),” the company says. 

Coming to its capabilities, Google says “Gemma surpasses significantly larger models on key benchmarks while adhering to our rigorous standards for safe and responsible outputs.”

With Vertex AI, Gemma can be used to build generative AI apps for lightweight tasks such as text generation, summarization, and Q&A. It also supports real-time generative AI use cases that require low latency. Google has also collaborated with Nvidia to optimize Gemma for NVIDIA GPUs.

Google says developers can start working with Gemma models today on Google Cloud in Vertex AI and GKE.
