Google unveils BARD : The competitor of ChatGPT

Alphabet Inc (GOOGL.O) the parent company of Google, announced on Monday that it will launch a chatbot service and more artificial intelligence for its search engine as well as developers, in response to Microsoft Corp (MSFT.O) in their rivalry to lead a new wave of computing.

The news storm reflects how Silicon Valley anticipates massive change from so-called generative AI, technology that can generate prose or other content on command and free up the time of white-collar workers.

The rise of ChatGPT, a chatbot from Microsoft-backed OpenAI that could change how consumers search for information, has been one of Google’s most significant challenges in recent memory.

Alphabet CEO Sundar Pichai announced in a blog post that his company is launching a conversational AI service called Bard to test users for feedback, followed by a public release in the coming weeks.

He also stated that Google intends to add artificial intelligence (AI) features to its search engine that will synthesise material for complex queries, such as whether learning guitar or piano is easier. Currently, Google presents text that exists elsewhere on the Web for questions where the answer is clear.

It’s unclear how Google intends to distinguish Bard from OpenAI’s ChatGPT. Pichai stated that the new service uses information from the internet; ChatGPT’s knowledge is up to date as of 2021.

Bard seeks to combine the breadth of the world’s knowledge with the power, intelligence and creativity of our” AI, Pichai said.

Behind the new chatbot is LaMDA, Google’s AI that generated text with such skill that a company engineer last year called it sentient, a claim the technology giant and scientists widely dismissed.
