Google Unwraps ChatGPT Rival, Bard

Google has released a ChatGPT rival named Bard. Bard uses Language Model for Dialogue Applications(LaMDA), Google’s language model. This was disclosed in a blog post shared by Chief Executive Officer(CEO) Sundar Pichai on Google’s website. Pichai hinted that Google is opening Bard up to trusted testers before releasing it to the public in the coming weeks.

This announcement comes after Google called ChatGPT “code red” as the AI-powered platform received positive responses from users across the world. ChatGPT which has achieved over 100 million users’ status is currently available to test for free.

Let’s talk Bard, ChatGPT rival

Bard is an AI-powered chatbot, just like ChatGPT.  Bard can generate answers to many queries in a conversational way. It garners information from the web to provide fresh, and high-quality responses. It is currently available to selected users for testing. 

Google also stated that it is releasing a “lightweight model version of LaMDA.” This model which requires significantly less computing power will allow Google to receive more feedback. The post also revealed that Google will combine feedback with their internal testing to ensure that Bard’s responses meet “a high bar for quality, safety and groundedness in real-world information.” This feedback is very crucial for the image of the company as it had been earlier reported that LaMDA provided racist and sexist responses.

Meanwhile, A video embedded in the blog post gave an illustration of how Bard works. In the video, the user asked, “what new discoveries from the James Webb Space Telescope can I tell my 9-year-old about.” Responding, Bard presented colorful facts like, “In 2023, the JWST spotted a number of galaxies nicknamed ‘green peas.”

Google hints at improving Search with AI capabilities

Also, Google noted that users would soon see AI-powered features in Search that distil complex information and multiple perspectives into easy-to-digest formats. It added that this will help users “quickly understand the big picture and learn more from the web: whether that’s seeking out additional perspectives, like blogs from people who play both piano and guitar, or going deeper on a related topic, like steps to get started as a beginner.”
