With Google’s network and coverage, ChatGPT might be cruising on thin ice really quickly
Google has unveiled Bard, a new conversational artificial intelligence (AI) technology that the company says will begin to roll out in the upcoming weeks but does not provide a specific release date.
Bard, which was developed by OpenAI to compete with ChatGPT, is powered by Google’s extensive language model known as Language Model for Dialogue Applications (LaMDA).
According to Google, this new technology will first be made available to “trusted testers” before being made available to a larger audience or before going on general release.
Sundar Pichai, the CEO of Google, made the following statement when making the announcement: “Soon, you’ll see AI-powered features in Search that distill complex information and multiple perspectives into easy-to-digest formats, so you can quickly understand the big picture and learn more from the web: whether that’s seeking out additional perspectives, like blogs from people who play both the piano and the guitar, or going deeper on a related topic, like steps to get started as a beginner.”
The development follows the holding of an all-hands meeting at Google where staff members voiced concerns about the company’s ability to maintain its competitive edge in the field of artificial intelligence technology in light of ChatGPT’s unexpected surge in popularity.
According to the reports, in response, Jeff Dean, Google’s AI chief, said that the company could risk its reputation by providing inaccurate information, which is why it is moving slowly and cautiously before introducing more AI-based features.
