In response to a futuristic competition from ChatGPT, Google’s CEO Sundar Pichai intriduced Bard, a technology on which Google has been working for the past six years.
Bard is an experimental conversational AI service. Powered by the company's Language Model for Dialogue Applications (LaMDA). What separates Bard from ChatGPT is that it will be able to derive information from the web.
Google is releasing Bard initially with a lightweight model version of LaMDA, which requires less computing power, making it easier to scale to more users and get more feedback. The company plans to combine external feedback with its internal testing to enhance Bard's responses and to ensure higher 'quality, safety and groundedness in real-world information'.
Trusted testers will be given access to Bard in the coming weeks, before it becomes more widely available to the public.
Google's introduction of Bard comes a day before Microsoft is conducting an event at its headquarters. The company is expected to introduce OpenAI's ChatGPT to its own search engine, Bing.
