Google Launches Revolutionary AI Chatbot, 'Bard', to Take on OpenAI's ChatGPT

OpenAI’s ChatGPT, the revolutionary automated text generation system, has made a huge impact on the world since its public beta launch just two months ago. However, its reign in the limelight may soon come to an end as Google unveils its highly anticipated chatbot AI project, Bard. The search giant confirmed the project’s existence on Monday and has slated a “Google Presents” event in Paris on Wednesday, where more information about Bard is expected to be disclosed.

Google CEO Sundar Pichai announced on Monday the arrival of Bard, a new “experimental conversational AI service” built on top of the company’s Language Model for Dialogue Applications (LaMDA) platform. Bard aims to bring together the vast knowledge of the world with the power and creativity of advanced language models. It sources information from the web to provide insightful responses.

Bard won’t be made publicly available like ChatGPT from OpenAI, instead, Google plans to first release a lightweight version of LaMDA to a select group of trusted users for testing purposes. Pichai explained that the company will gather external feedback and conduct internal testing to ensure that Bard’s responses are of high quality, safe and grounded in real-world information.

Google’s plans for AI go beyond just conversing with internet users. Pichai stated that as user search requests become more complex, AI-powered features will be introduced to search to simplify complex information and multiple perspectives. Soon, select developers will also be invited to explore the commercial API running on LaMDA, called Generative Language API.

Though Pichai didn’t share much information about Bard’s capabilities, he hinted that it would be a platform for discovery and a way to explain complex ideas to a wide range of audiences. More details are expected to be unveiled at the upcoming “Google Presents” event in Paris on February 8th.
