Google has launched its new AI system, Bard, to compete with Microsoft’s ChatGPT. Based on the LaMDA (Language Model for Dialogue Applications) system, Bard draws on information from the web to provide fresh, high-quality answers for various purposes, including creative and informational.
As the market for chatbots is diverse, there is ChatGPT, which has gained significant traction on social media and various blog posts. However, Google has recently introduced its Bard AI system as a rival to ChatGPT, generating buzz both organically and through paid promotion. Based on its features, it appears that Bard has a distinct advantage over ChatGPT. The following graph depicts the level of hype for various chatbots in 2023.
According to Google CEO Sundar Pichai, Bard combines the breadth of global knowledge with the power, intelligence, and creativity of advanced language models. The Google Bard AI system will be available to the public in the coming weeks.
ChatGPT, created by OpenAI, has taken the online world since its release in late 2022. The AI system can write essays, and news stories, hold conversations and answer questions, and capture online discussions with its uncanny resemblance to reality. OpenAI uses Microsoft’s Azure cloud-based service to train all its models, and the investment will help accelerate its independent research.
Despite its popularity, ChatGPT has also raised concerns about its potential to replace professional writers and complete student homework which leads many problems in different countries such as Ban on AI-powered ChatGPT for Students and Staff in Victoria.
The Google Bard AI system has been trained for natural language dialogues using techniques that involve humans and is already preparing a paid version.
Google’s new AI system, Bard, is based on the LaMDA system, which took several years to develop. This provides fresh, high-quality responses and is expected to be widely available to the public soon.
