Google is launching its own artificial intelligence bot known as Bard, a direct competitor to ChatGPT.
In a blog post Monday, the California-based company said it will soon offer a select number of “trusted testers” access to an artificial intelligence prototype it has been working on in some form or another for the past six years.
The company says it plans to roll out the service “more broadly to the public in the coming weeks.”
The news comes on the heels of the launch of ChatGPT, the world’s first mainstream artificial intelligence tool, which received a lot of praise and criticism in its first few weeks.
Like ChatGPT, Bard offers users nuanced answers to complex or open-ended queries. ChatGPT was created by a company called Open AI, in which he received a $1 billion investment from Microsoft in 2019.
Since its launch in November, ChatGPT has already processed more than 100 million queries, answering basic questions by searching the internet and other databases for relevant information based on what is uploaded to its internal system. It provides users with human-like answers.
The technology behind Google’s chatbot is known as LaMDA, a conversation and language simulator. It’s such a sophisticated language simulator that one of his former engineers at the company made headlines last year, describing it as “sensory.”
According to Google, even users who aren’t directly using the chatbot will be able to see the impact on Google’s core search tools immediately.
CEO Sundar Pichai said in a blog post that the difference between Google search and artificial intelligence-powered search today is that users ask, “How many keys does a piano have?” It is similar to asking How much practice does each require? ”
“AI can help us in these moments by synthesizing insights into questions that don’t have a single correct answer,” said Pichai.
“Instantly, AI-powered capabilities that distill complex information and multiple perspectives into digestible formats will appear in search so you can quickly understand the big picture and learn more from the web. increase.”
