Hot on the heels of OpenAI’s launch of ChatGPT, Google has announced its own AI chatbot, Bard.
However, before you get all excited, Bard will be tested by a group of individuals first before being rolled out to the public.
Still, this could be an exciting time.
Bard is built on Google’s existing large language model Lamda, which has been described as being so human-like in its responses that some engineers believed it was sentient.
Introducing Bard, Google CEO Sundar Pichai explained that Bard will seek to combine the breadth of the world’s knowledge with the power, intelligence and creativity of their large language models.
Pichai continues that Bard will be able to be used as an outlet for creativity and a launchpad for curiosity. Allowing users to explain new discoveries to anyone of any age to being able to develop one’s own skills.
Pichi was also aware of some of the safeguarding concerns that ChatGPT has had, and in his statement promised that Bard would be tailored to meet a high bar for quality, safety and groundedness, based off of external feedback and Google’s own internal testing.
The AI chatbot wars promise to be fascinating.
