Google New AI Chatbot Bard Ready To Compete With Microsoft-Backed ChatGPT: All You Need To Know
Google has unveiled Bard, its ChatGPT rival that leverages LaMDA (Language Model for Dialogue Applications), Google's language model. The announcement comes days after CEO Sundar Pichai revealed its development during an earnings call.
Before the call, Google management called ChatGPT "code red" as the AI-powered platform received positive responses from users worldwide. In a blog post, Google says that it is opening Bard up to "trusted testers" ahead of making it more widely available to the public in the coming weeks. ChatGPT, on the other hand, is available to test for free. It recently clocked 100 million users in just two months.
How to access Google Bard?
Currently, Google Bard is not available for testing to the public, but select users have access. Google is releasing a "lightweight model version of LaMDA," which requires significantly less computing power. This will allow Google to receive more feedback.
Why did Google get late with rolling out its ChatGPT rival?
Google has been working on its language model for a while, but the company paused its public rollout after allegations from its employee. Google CEO Pichai indicated during the latest earnings call that the world is ready for generative AI, following the positive reception towards ChatGPT. He added, "I feel comfortable with all the investments we have made in making sure we can develop AI responsibly and we'll be careful."
