After the Google owner created “Bard” in response to AI chatbot phenomenon ChatGPT, competitor Alphabet Inc. and Microsoft are once again engaged in a competition to dominate the online zeitgeist.
The next Chrome-versus-Internet Explorer or Gmail-versus-Hotmail battle may have already begun when Microsoft stated it will have an event at its Redmond offices to unveil its own artificial intelligence only minutes after Google announced the debut of Bard on Monday.
Since it became available to the general public last year, Microsoft-backed OpenAI’s ChatGPT has taken the tech world by storm as users across the globe have gotten inventive with the prompts that the conversational chatbot uses to generate anything from poetry and books to jokes and film screenplays.
White-collar employees’ time may be increased thanks to the artificial intelligence service, which may alter how customers look for information or produce content when asked to do so.
Here are a few significant differences between Bard and ChatGPT:
How do they behave?
Both ChatGPT and Google’s Bard would provide comparable services. In order to obtain a response that sounds human-like, users will need to type in a question, a request, or a prompt.
Microsoft and Google want to integrate AI techniques to strengthen their very profitable search engines Bing and Google Search.
What makes them unique?
Both systems can condense complicated material and different viewpoints into digestible forms, but Bard’s capacity to include current events in the answers stands out as a key distinction.
Alphabet’s Bard will undoubtedly have access to more data, even if it is not yet apparent how the two services would vary from one another.
GPT against LaMDA
Language Model for Dialogue Applications, or LaMDA, is the foundation on which Bard is built. The AI produced writing with such competence that a business developer last year claimed it was sentient, a claim that was largely rejected by the technology giant and scientists.
The core of ChatGPT is built on the Generative Pre-trained Transformer (GPT) 3.5 series of language models, which OpenAI published in early 2022 after completing training.
Open AI said in a blog post that “ChatGPT sometimes produces plausible-sounding but wrong or illogical responses.”
Bard will be accessible when?
On November 30 of last year, OpenAI made a free research preview of ChatGPT accessible to the general public; however, Bard is still only accessible to a select number of testers.
In a blog post, Alphabet CEO Sundar Pichai said that the conversational AI service will soon be broadly accessible.
Exist any other options?
A number of big firms have increased their investments in generative AI technologies in the two months after ChatGPT’s debut, while other startups have started working on their own projects independently.
The newest business to get involved in the craze is Baidu, China’s version of Google. The name of its AI is Ernie.
