Google Launches Bard AI to Compete with ChatGPT and Bing AI

Bard AI

With acute competition from ChatGPT and Bing AI, Google is not willing to wait until Google IO 2023 conference. Google has rolled out Bard AI on an experimental basis to enable users to collaborate with generative AI. Google Bard AI will be available in the US and UK only to begin with and will be expanded to more countries and languages based on the feedback. The Bard AI will compete with ChatGPT and Bing AI including Quora Poe AI.

The launch of Bard AI is part of a continuous approach of the company to help people, businesses, and communities. You can make use of Bard AI to boost productivity and also to accelerate your ideas. Google is willing to gather feedback from people to improve the output rendered by Bard AI.

Google CEO Sundar Pichai took to Twitter and disclosed that they are expanding access to Bard AI in US and UK with more countries to follow soon. The project is an early experiment to enable people to collaborate with generative AI. Pichai is hopeful that Bard sparks more creativity and curiosity with better feedback. He also provided the URL where users can work with the AI interface.

Technology

Bard AI is powered by a research-based Large Language Model (LLM), which is a lightweight and optimized LaMDA version. The system will be updated with new and capable model as time progresses based on the quality. The LLM is a prediction engine that generates a response by selecting one word at a time. According to Google, LLM are prone to faults even though the technology is exciting. Google Bard AI is capable of learning from a wide range of information that reflects real-world biases and stereotypes.

Google revealed that Bard AI could provide inaccurate, misleading, or false information. Hence, people should use it with caution by cross-checking the facts with a real search engine. The LLM models gather information from a wide range of sources by using various AI and ML techniques.

Highly Productive

That being said, LLMs have substantial benefits such as enhancing human productivity, creativity, and curiosity. Bard produces different drafts for the responses and you can pick the best starting point. You can collaborate with Bard AI by asking questions. You can repeatedly ask queries until you view the correct response.

Connected to Search

Bard is developed as a direct interface to an LLM and hence it serves as a complementary experience to Google Search. Bard is designed in such a way that you can easily navigate to Search to check the responses or sources from across the web. If you click “Google it”, you will view suggestions for queries. Moreover, the search will open in a new tab from where you can fetch relevant results.

Funny AI

Bard is capable of writing an outline and suggesting edits. The company accepted the fact that LLM model provided messages, which made them to laugh loud. Google Bard AI will continue to enhance the model by adding coding functionalities including multiple languages and multimodal experiences. Bard will continue to improve as the system continues to learn.
