Google Bard unveiled to compete against OpenAI’s ChatGPT
Google has finally released its conversational AI called “Bard”. It runs on Google’s LaMDA language model and is currently under an experimental phase available to the general public in the US and the UK. Bard is Google’s direct answer to the widely popular conversational AI from OpenAI, called ChatGPT. Let’s see how powerful Bard is in comparison to ChatGPT.
Google Bard AI Chatbot Overview:
Google released its most-awaited AI chatbot, Bard, to the general public on Tuesday in the United States and the United Kingdom. This new and innovative Google service is powered by the Language Model for Dialogue Applications (LaMDA) and uses a wide range of data available online to provide users with relevant and high-quality responses. According to Google, this is a supplement to Search rather than a replacement for traditional search engines.
Google Bard’s homepage is similar to that of ChatGPT and AI-powered Bing. However, Google includes a disclaimer at the bottom that states, “Bard may display inaccurate or offensive information that does not represent Google’s views,” whereas ChatGPT and Bing do not. Unlike other chatbots, Bard displays three responses to a single query, all of which are nearly identical with minor differences. Each response includes a prominent “Google It” button that takes users to a related Google search. You can also ask Bard questions using your voice, just like you do with Google Assistant, but this feature is not available in ChatGPT.
So far, several users from the United States and the United Kingdom have tested Bard. Most users discovered that Bard responds faster than its competitors, possibly because there are fewer users on the platform, but it lacks creativity and accuracy (mostly while doing maths and grammar), possibly because it is not fully optimized yet.
Google Bard vs OpenAI ChatGPT:
Everyone is waiting to see who will win this AI battle between ChatGPT and Bard. Both ChatGPT and Bard perform identical tasks, but ChatGPT currently wins in the majority of cases because it is better trained than Brad. Bard indeed is currently immature in comparison to ChatGPT, but Google is constantly taking user feedback and improving Bard. This AI war will last longer; until then, just wait and watch who comes out with something better than the others in this AI war. Check out the images below and decide for yourself who is superior.
Google Bard: Availability
As mentioned before, this AI chatbot from Google is currently available in the US and UK only. And Google says it will expand to more countries and languages over time.
