Google Launching Its Own Artificial Intelligence Bot, Known As Bard

SAN FRANCISCO: Google announced on Monday that it will launch a conversational chatbot named Bard. This announcement sets up a battle between Google and Microsoft in the field of artificial intelligence, as Microsoft has invested billions in the makers of ChatGPT, a language app that accurately mimics human writing.

The San Francisco firm OpenAI’s ChatGPT has made a splash for its capacity to compose essays, poetry, or computer code on demand in a matter of seconds, igniting widespread concerns about cheating or the extinction of whole professions.

With hopes that it would adapt the program to its Office suite and Bing search engine, Microsoft stated last month that it was supporting OpenAI and that it has started integrating ChatGPT capabilities into its Teams platform.

The possibility of Google’s integration into Bing brought attention to the corporation and rumors that its globally renowned search engine would see unprecedented competition from an AI-powered competitor.

According to media sources, Google’s founders, Sergey Brin, and Larry Page, who parted ways some years ago, was called back in to explore solutions and expedite a reaction after ChatGPT’s sudden popularity was deemed a “code red” danger.

The lackluster profits reported last week by Alphabet, the company that owns Google, which fell short of market forecasts, increased the pressure to act. The corporation said last month that it was letting go of 12,000 employees as it focused more on AI initiatives.

The fact that Google made its announcement on the day of Microsoft’s introduction of an AI-related product indicates that the two tech titans will compete for generative AI, a technology.

According to independent tech analyst Rob Enderle, “Generative AI is a game changer and just as the development of the internet sunk the networking giants that came before (AOL, CompuServe, etc.), it has the potential to change the competitive dynamic for search and information.

He said, “Google still relies heavily on the fact that their search engine is the most widely used; this might change that, relegating them to history.”

A high caliber of responses

Google CEO Sundar Pichai said in a blog post on Monday that Bard conversational AI was going to be tested with the intention of making it more widely accessible to the general public “in the coming weeks.”

Google’s Bard, which has been in development for a while, is based on LaMDA, the company’s Language Model for Dialogue Applications technology.

Pichai, alluding to the technology behind ChatGPT-like AI, stated that “Bard aspires to integrate the depth of the world’s information with the strength, intellect, and creativity of our massive language models.”

In order to provide new, high-quality responses, it uses information from the web, he said.

Google had been hesitant to provide its own language-based AI prior to the introduction of ChatGPT, which was made available in late November, out of concern about the reputational risk of releasing technology that was not yet ready.

Pichai emphasized that Bard’s responses will “reach a high threshold for quality, safety, and groundedness in real-world information.”

In order to save computational resources and appeal to a larger audience, Bard would also employ a constrained version of its fundamental language paradigm, similar to ChatGPT.

Google also said that customers will soon see AI-powered improvements in its search engine, which is crucial for its impending battle with Microsoft.

According to Pichai, modern responses would “distill complicated information and different opinions into easily digestible forms.”
