On February 7, 2023, Google finally launched its AI technology, Bard. The purpose of this launch was to compete with OpenAI’s highly popular language model, ChatGPT-3. According to an official blog post by Google CEO Sundar Pichai, Bard is a conversational AI service that is designed to make complex subjects easier to understand and provide high-quality responses.
Google revealed Bard as competition to OpenAI’s ChatGPT
For the time being, Bard is only available to a limited number of testers, but the company plans to make it available to the public soon. Pichai stated in a blog post that Bard will serve as a tool for creativity and help answer questions and clarify new information.
Days after the announcement of Baidu’s plans to roll out a ChatGPT-style chatbot, Google introduced its own interactive AI tool, Bard. This move puts Bard in direct competition with OpenAI’s ChatGPT which has already gained 100 million users just two months after being made available for public testing. At this point, it’s unclear what Bard is capable of but it appears to be similar to ChatGPT.
What is Google’s new AI Bard?
Bard is Google’s latest addition to the world of AI chatbots. Similar to ChatGPT, users will be able to interact with Bard through conversation. The chatbot is built on the foundation of Google’s Language Model for Dialogue Application (LaMDA).
The company considers Bard to be a lighter version of LaMDA. At present, Bard is only available for testing by a limited number of users, but Google CEO Sundar Pichai has stated that the chatbot will soon be available for public use.
Why Bard is created by Google?
Bard was created to improve the user experience by providing easy-to-understand information and accurate, fresh and high-quality content. Users can now access information in a more straightforward manner. Despite being developed and launched in a short amount of time Bard is seen as a formidable competitor to ChatGPT.
Google, known for its dominance in the search engine market, has launched an AI-based chatbot called Bard. This tool provides users with the latest and high-quality information on events, something that ChatGPT struggles with due to its training data being cut off at 2021. Bard is powered by Google’s LaMDA (Language Model for Dialogue Applications) and utilizes a Convolutional Neural Language Model.
In order to reach a wider audience, Google is releasing Bard with a lightweight version of the LaMDA model. This smaller model requires less computing power, making it more accessible to users. Google will collect feedback from external users and integrate it with its own internal testing to ensure that Bard provides answers of the highest quality and accuracy based on current, real-world information.
What are the features of Google’s Bard?
- It will provide fresh and high-quality responses.
- With the assistance of responses and the web, Bard AI will gather information from users.
- While Bard utilizes data from the internet, ChatGPT’s knowledge cutoff is 2021, granting it access to information till 2021.
When will Bard be Available?
At present, Bard is accessible only to a select group of testers. However, according to a blog post by Alphabet CEO Sundar Pichai, the conversational AI service will soon be available to a broader audience in the near future.
It is believed that Google will soon make Bard readily available to the public, likely within the next few weeks.
Google Bard is poised to make a significant impact in the realm of AI search engines. This new service promises to revolutionize the way we gather information from the web and is a thrilling prospect for Google users.
At present, access to Bard is limited to a select group and is not available to the general public. However, it is expected that Google will make Bard widely accessible in the near future, possibly within the next month. Upon its release, it wouldn’t be surprising to see Bard fully integrated into Google Search.
