Google is trying to catch up with its competitors in artificial intelligence. It has now introduced Bard, a service to compete with ChatGPT. Currently, Bard is in testing and can only be used by a select group of users.
Bard as a competitor to ChatGPT
The service was introduced by Google CEO Sundar Pichai himself. Bard is based on the model language for dialogue applications (LaMDA). Everything is based on the principle of collecting information on the Internet, which is then used to generate timely and quality responses. It is therefore a conversational service.
Pichai further stated that this service can lead to a revolution in the world of conversational artificial intelligence. This service aims to provide versatile answers in all fields. One will be able to push their creative boundaries or acquire new knowledge and skills with AI.
Only test operation so far
Google also has a lightweight version of Bard that requires less computing power. This allows for more mass distribution and more feedback from external sources. The result of internal and external testing is to ensure the quality and realism of the information transmitted.
Bard is now live for a small group of external testers and is estimated to be launched to the general public in the next few weeks. Google continues to work with the scientific AI community, external organisations and governments to set AI standards to make AI safe and useful.
