The race to develop the most advanced AI is heating up. Alphabet, Google’s parent company, recently announced the release of Bard, an AI-powered chatbot service.
Bard, which is powered by Google’s LaMDA language model, is seen as a competitor to open AI’s ChatGPT. Bard’s announcement comes just days after Google CEO Sundar Pichai provided an update on the company’s progress during an earnings call.
Because of the positive feedback from users all over the world, Google’s management team referred to the ChatGPT as “code red” prior to the call. In just two months, ChatGPT has amassed 100 million users.
The only difference between ChatGPT and Bard is the source of data used. Through its constant internet connection, Bard has access to more recent and accurate information; however, ChatGPT’s data is limited to 2021, so it can only provide information up to that date.
This implies that there will be a period of significant experimentation and rapid convergence towards tools that best meet the user’s needs. What are your thoughts on this?
