Google launched a new chatbot tool called “Bard” to rival the success of ChatGPT. The CEO of Google and parent company Alphabet, Sundar Pichay said that “Bard ” entered trusted testers. The firm plans to make it public in the upcoming weeks. AI research company OpenAI released ChatGPT last November. In order to compete, the development of “Bard” is on a substantial language model. The data generation was from huge troves of data online to respond to massive user prompts. Pichai remarked that Bards combines both world’s knowledge with the power, creativity, and intelligence of language models. The goal is to give web information with high-quality responses.
Google has been feeling unwell with a bulk of competitors. In recent years, its core product like online search faces intrinsic risk. For instance, in two months only, ChatGPT could function as essay, stories, and song lyrics generation. People even use ChatGPT to answer questions that have been searched previously on Google. Public’s attention to ChatGPT has brought Google Management to state “code red” situation for its search business. Due to the rise of AI and competitors, Paul Buchheit, creator of Gmail warned Google that they might face disruptions.
Basically, Bard has been around for some time, it is just not widely available to the public. Around two years ago, Google launched Language Model for Dialogue Applications (LaMDA). The firm said that LaMDA is a technology that supports Bard. However, it received many criticisms due to the saying that the chatbot was sentient.
