Sundar Pichai, the CEO of Google, explained the idea behind “Bard,” their conversational artificial intelligence (AI) chatbot, in a series of tweets and on the Google blog. Bard will be a direct competitor to OpenAI’s ChatGPT, which has been sweeping the internet since its debut in November of last year.
Pichai tweeted on Tuesday, “Coming soon: Bard, a new experimental conversational #GoogleAI service powered by LaMDA.
What you need to know about this chatbot created by Google is as follows:
- According to Pichai, Bard is “seeks to connect the breadth of the world’s knowledge with the strength, intelligence, and creativity of our massive language models,” and is “an crucial next step in our AI journey.”
- It is powered by the Language Model for Dialogue Applications, or LaMDA, from the tech giant; for the time being, the chatbot will use a lightweight model of LaMDA.
- Bard can be utilised to simplify complex subjects and will offer original, high-quality responses by drawing on online data.
- Google will use external feedback with its own internal testing to ensure that Bard’s responses uphold a high standard of quality, safety, and informational veracity.
- For the time being, it will be available only to “trusted testers,” with the broader public receiving access in the coming weeks.
