Google has announced the development of its AI Chatbot, Bard, set to rival the popular ChatGPT. Bard is currently undergoing testing before its public release in the coming months. It is built on Google’s advanced language model, LaMDA, which engineers describe as “sentient.”
The AI industry is set to see major advancements in the coming years with the release of cutting-edge technologies like Bard. Chatbots such as Bard and ChatGPT have the potential to revolutionize the way we interact with technology by answering questions using AI and vast databases.
Google CEO Sundar Pichai stated that Bard seeks to blend the world’s knowledge with the intelligence and creativity of large language models. However, there is the potential for chatbots to spread harmful or offensive content due to their reliance on the internet for information. Google promises to be “bold and responsible” in their AI services.
For increased accessibility, Google has developed Bard using a lighter version of LaMDA. Pichai further mentioned that AI Chatbots will eventually be integrated into internet searches, offering users easy-to-digest information from complex sources and multiple perspectives.
