Google hopes ‘Bard’ will surpass ChatGPT, Microsoft in AI
Google is preparing for a battle of wits in the field of artificial intelligence with “Bard,” a conversation service that seems to counter the popularity of the Microsoft-powered ChatGPT engine.
Bard will initially be reserved for a group of “trusted testers” before being released to the general public later this year, according to to a second blog post from Google CEO Sundar Pichai.
Google’s chatbot is said to be able to explain complex topics like the exploration of outer space in terms simple enough for a child to understand. It also claims that the service will also perform other mundane tasks, such as providing tips for planning a party or lunch ideas based on food left in the fridge. Pichai did not say in his post whether Bard could write prose in the style of William Shakespeare, the playwright who seems to have inspired the name of the service.
“Bards can be an outlet for creativity and a launch pad for curiosity,” writes Pichai
Google announced Bard’s existence less than two weeks after Microsoft revealed it pour billions of dollars into OpenAI, the San Francisco-based maker of ChatGPT and other tools that can write readable text and create new images.
Microsoft’s decision to increase the $1 billion investment they previously made in OpenAI in 2019 increasing pressure on Google to demonstrate that it will be able to pick up pace in areas of technology that many analysts believe will be transformative such as personal computers, the internet and smartphones that have gone through various phases over the past 40 years. via.
in one last week’s reportCNBC reports that a group of Google engineers are working on artificial intelligence technology “has been asked to prioritize work to respond to ChatGPT.” Bard was once a service developed under a project called “Atlas”, which was part of Google’s “code red” effort to counter the success of ChatGPT, which has attracted tens of millions of users since then. since its joint release late last year, at the same time causing concern in schools on students’ ability to write entire essays.
Pichai has emphasized the importance of artificial intelligence over the past six years, with one of the most visible by-products due to be realized in 2021 as part of a system called “Language Modeling for Languages”. dialogue app”, or LaMDA, will be used to power Bard.
Google also plans to begin incorporating LaMDA and other artificial intelligence advances into its dominant search engine to provide more useful answers to increasingly complex questions posed by Google. billions of users. Without giving a specific timeline, Pichai said artificial intelligence tools will be implemented in Google search in the near future.
In another sign of Google’s deeper commitment to the field, last week Google announced that it is investing in and partnering with Anthropic, an AI startup led by several former leaders. at OpenAI lead. Anthropic has also built its own AI chatbot called Claude and has a mission focused on AI safety.
