Google Officially Releases Bard: Its ChatGPT Rival
April 1, 2023
Google has announced its competitor for ChatGPT. It’s called Google Bard, and it’s an AI (artificial intelligence) chat service that’s going to be launched “in the next few weeks.” Like ChatGPT, Google’s chatbot promises to be able to answer difficult questions and teach you about topics through dialogue.
The main difference with ChatGPT, for now, is that Bard will be connected to the web, which will allow him to give you what Google confirms (opens in new tab) are “fresh, high-quality responses.” In other words, a current day, it will be more up to date. Google Bard works with LaMDA, which is a language model intended for dialog applications. Like ChatGPT, we are talking about a type of machine learning called a “huge linguistic model” that has been altered from a large data set and is capable of understanding the human as written.
When will Bard be available?
Google said that as of the time of the announcement, Bard will be available for testing by certain “trusted users”. But the public will generally have to wait a few weeks to get a taste of the new service. It’s unclear exactly how we’ll access Bard in these early stages, but Google says that soon its AI-based features “will begin to roll out in Google Research.”
So what exactly is Google’s Bard going to do for you, and how will it compare to ChatGPT, which Microsoft has just announced it will be incorporating into its own Bing search engine? Next we describe everything you need to know about it.
What is Bard?
Like ChatGPT, Bard is a chatbot that relies on deep learning algorithms called “monumental linguistic models.” In this situation one called LaMDA. Initially, Bard will launch with a “light model version” of LaMDA. Google says this will allow it to open up the chatbot to more people, because this “far smaller model needs significantly less computing power.”
In the first days, Google Bard will be in a first stage of tests. In which the company will dedicate itself to combining user feedback on its new service with its own internal tests. This is due to the fact that, despite all its benefits, chatbots have also shown a propensity for the negative aspects that they integrate from the bias to enhance cyberattacks.
Opening up chatbots to public testing carries huge advantages that Google calls “exciting” but also dangers that argue why the search giant was so cautious about releasing Bard to the public. However, the despised fame of ChatGPT seems to have forced Google to rush the public release of Bard. So far, Google hasn’t provided many details about Bard’s abilities, but it has provided some examples of what it can do.
In practical terms, Google Bard represents an evolution of Google Discovery. With its potential to revolutionize how we use search engines and find information on the Internet. According to Google, Bard could serve as “an outlet for creativity” or “a platform for satisfying curiosity. This by allowing you to explore new discoveries from NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope or learn about the best soccer forwards and even get drills to improve your skills.”
