Google Launches Bard AI Chatbot To Compete With ChatGPT
Google has recently launched a new AI chatbot service called Bard, which aims to provide users with a natural and engaging conversational experience. Bard is powered by LaMDA, Google’s language model built on Transformer, a neural network architecture that can generate coherent and diverse text responses based on online information.
Bard is similar to ChatGPT, an AI chatbot developed by OpenAI that uses a large-scale language model called GPT-3 to produce human-like text. Both chatbots can handle various types of inquiries and instructions, such as answering questions, writing emails, drafting lists, creating stories, and more. However, Google claims that Bard has some advantages over ChatGPT, such as:
- Bard is more up-to-date and relevant. Bard uses online information to give fresh and high-quality replies, while ChatGPT relies on a static dataset that may be outdated or inaccurate.
- Bard is more adaptable and flexible. Bard can adjust its tone and style according to the user’s preferences and context, while ChatGPT has a fixed personality and voice.
- Bard is more responsible and ethical. Bard follows Google’s AI principles and responsible innovation practices, while ChatGPT may generate harmful or biased content.
To use Bard, users need to sign up for the waitlist on the official website (bard.google.com) and wait for an invitation email. Currently, Bard is only available for users in the US or the UK, but Google plans to expand it to more countries in the future. Users can access Bard through a web browser and interact with it using text or voice prompts. Users can also view and delete their chat history on the website.
Bard is still in an experimental stage and may not always give accurate or appropriate responses. Google encourages users to provide feedback and report any issues they encounter while using Bard. Google hopes that Bard will become a useful and fun tool for users who want to have conversations with an AI chatbot.
