Google Bard is an unique chatbot solution released in the wake of all the excitement about generative AI, like ChatGPT. Bard employs a blend of natural language processing and machine learning to replicate human conversations while giving you accurate and practical answers to issues you might ask it.
Google’s response to ChatGPT is Google Bard. It’s an AI chatbot with many of the same characteristics, yet is aimed to eventually complement Google’s own search engines (much the way Bing Chat is now employing GPT-4) as well as providing automated help and human-like contact for businesses.
How to use Google Bard
Google is probably giving “Pixel Superfans” an early glimpse at Bard, but you don’t need a Pixel phone to sign up for the service. You may join the Google Bard waitlist at bard.google.com, and you’ll receive an email when it’s your turn to have a look. Moreover, Google One users get the opportunity to preview Bard.
We had the opportunity to try Google Bard for ourselves. Despite the fact that there are still some obvious flaws, the service is nevertheless impressive. At present, the largest challenge is that Bard will only respond to specific requests; as a result, you’ll sometimes need to ask it numerous times to write code, translate languages, and perform many other tasks other than creating text.
With indications of ChatGPT’s successful development in the beginning of 2022, CEO Sundar Pichai first expedited the development of Google Bard. That is only expected to have continued apace with the ongoing favorable press coverage ChatGPT has received in 2023.
Google Bard vs. ChatGPT
Although Google Bard and ChatGPT utilize machine learning and natural language models to build their chatbots, but they each have a unique set of functionality. At the time of writing, Google Bard has the capacity to use current data for its responses, whereas ChatGPT is solely dependent on data that was mostly gathered up to 2021. ChatGPT has a significant focus on conversational questions and answers, but it is currently employed in Bing’s search results, too, to answer more conversational searches. The similar approach will be taken with Google Bard, but just to enhance Google.
Based on significantly distinct language models, both chatbots. Google Bard employs LaMBDA, whereas ChatGPT is based on GPT-3.5 (Generative Pre-trained Transformer) (Generative Pre-trained Transformer). Although it hasn’t exactly eliminated plagiarism, ChatGPT also contains a plagiarism checker. As far as we’re aware, Google Bard does not.
Availability of Google Bard
Google Bard is now accessible via the waitlist, but it’s difficult to predict when it will be accessible to everyone. For its wider implementation, no precise timetable has been provided.
However, in his talk on the debut of Google Bard, Google CEO Sundar Pichai said that we would soon see Google Bard leveraged to boost Google Search, so we may see Bard more easily available in the upcoming days.
Controversy about Google Bard?
Google’s Bard had a difficult launch, presenting false information on the James Webb Space Telescope in a demonstration (JWST). Google tweeted a demonstration of the AI chat service with the challenge, “What new discoveries from the James Webb Space Telescope can I tell my 9-year-old about?” to introduce the service. JWST captured the first images of a planet beyond of our solar system, in response to Bard.
Google’s LaMDA received criticism prior to the introduction of Bard. According to Tiernan Ray of ZDNET, former Google engineer Blake Lemoine revealed in a document that LaMDA might be “sentient” soon after its publication. Because Google disputed the sentience and placed Lemoine on paid administrative leave before firing him from the firm, this debate subsided.
How did Google opt to reveal Google Bard now?
Since its debut, ChatGPT has been well received. ChatGPT has over a million users less than a week after its debut. The investigation by the Swiss bank UBS indicates that ChatGPT is the app with the greatest rate of growth. Due to this success, Google and other tech giants are attempting to enter the market while it’s still hot.
Microsoft introduced a new AI-improved Bing in the same week that Google unveiled Bard. This version of Bing is powered by a cutting-edge OpenAI big language model that has been specially tailored for search.
