Bard, Google’s artificial intelligence chatbot, will be launching soon.
This is in response to the enormous success of ChatGPT, which is supported by Microsoft.
Google plans to incorporate the technology underlying Bard into its search engine, allowing complex queries, such as whether the guitar or piano is easier to learn, to be condensed into better results.
Bard was made accessible to product testers on Monday and will be broadly available to the public in the coming weeks, according to Google.
Bard, like ChatGPT, is powered on a huge language model known as LaMDA.
Neural networks, which imitate the architecture of the brain in computer form, are used in large languages AI models such as LaMDA and the one underpinning ChatGPT.
They are fed massive volumes of text from the internet in order to learn how to respond to text-based instructions.
ChatGPT quickly became the darling of the entire globe after its November debut, producing nearly faultless material like essays, job applications, poems, code, and even debugging.
According to analysts, the AI has already achieved 100 million users, making it one of the fastest products to reach that milestone.
“Bard seeks to combine the breadth of the world’s knowledge with the power, intelligence, and creativity of our large language models,” Google CEO Sundar Pichai stated.
“It uses web information to provide fresh, high-quality responses.”
Google also said that its latest AI technologies, including LaMDA, PaLM, Imagen, and MusicLM, would be integrated into its search engine.
Pichai offered the example of asking Google which instrument is easier to learn: a guitar or a piano, with Google, subsequently publishing an example of a conversation-style response to that query – rather than a single blog post link.
The company also stated that the technology underlying LaMDA will be made available to developers, creators, and enterprises in order for them to build apps powered by Google’s AI technology.
Google’s announcement comes as Microsoft, a prominent supporter of ChatGPT, plans to offer new products based on the chatbot’s technology. OpenAI, based in San Francisco, developed ChatGPT, which just secured a multibillion-dollar investment from Microsoft.
