Google Bard: Google introduces Bard A.I. in reaction to ChatGPT,

Google Bard AI
Google has unveiled Google Bard, a new conversational AI tool that will be made available for public testing validating earlier reports of a new chat system to compete with the already popular ChatGPT.

Google Bard AI

Google has released Bard, a product that uses its own Language Model for Dialogue Applications, LaMDA, to take on ChatGPT. A  few days prior to the announcement, Google CEO Sundar Pichai had provided an update on the company’s progress on an earnings call.


Before this call, Google executives referred to ChatGPT as “code red” following the positive feedback the AI platform has received from users all over the world. More than 100 million are using ChatGPT. After just two months of operation, ChatGPT has gained more than 100 million users.

Because of the great reviews ChatGPT has received from users all across the world, Google officials have previously referred to the AI platform as “code red”.  Google announced that it is making Bard available to “trusted testers” in a blog post before making it freely available to the public in the coming weeks.

Google AI and how it works

Like ChatGPT, Google Bard is an AI-powered bot that can answer a variety of questions in a conversational tone.

According to Google, Bard leverages online resources to deliver smart, current responses. Transformer, a neural network architecture, and LaMDA, Google’s language model, are the brains behind the chatbot.

Interestingly, Transformer and the GPT-3 language model are both the foundations of ChatGPT. Additionally,  Transformer was developed and released by Google Research in 2017.


How to use Bard AI

To use the Google AI chatbot first you must have been selected as a beta tester. If so, all you need to do is open the Google app on your phone and tap the chatbot icon. Enter your query and press Enter, just like on ChatGPT.

The chatbot can then reply to your questions or requests for a conversation to begin. In order to provide new and exciting ways to interact with information, Google is also actively striving to improve and enhance the chatbot’s capabilities.

Where to find Google Bard AI

Only a few individuals currently can access the Google Bard AI for testing. Google is creating a “lightweight model version of LaMDA” to cut down on the time and resources used for processing.

Once the Google Bard AI link is shared, it is anticipated to be included into Google Search and be accessible using the search box to enter queries.

To give current responses to text inputs, the chatbot uses data from the internet.  On his Twitter account,  Sunder Pichai made the following comments about the Google Bard AI chatbot’s API usage although the actual release date is still unknown:

Since it is designed to provide straightforward answers to challenging issues, it can help with tasks like planning baby showers, reviewing movies, and coming up with lunch ideas. Whether the chatbot will be accessible through other Google services like Google Assistant or Google Maps is not yet known.

ChatGPT vs. Google Bard AI

The key contrast between Google Bard AI and ChatGPT is Bard’s capacity to take into account current events when formulating its responses. Google’s Bard AI is not yet available to the public.  However, here is what you might find different from ChatGPT as a result of the recent upgrades:

  • Queries get real-time answers on the Apprentice Bard AI.
  • When using Google Bard AI, you only need to make a slight modification to your Google settings to get your standard search results. ChatGPT, on the other hand, will only return text responses.
  • On Lambda, Google Apprentice Bard is based on Lamda while  ChatGPT is based on GPT.
  • The AI Text Classifier in ChatGPT is a unique plagiarism detector.This capability is not yet available on Apprentice Bard AI..
  • For now Google Apprentice Bard AI is totally free. However, OpenAI just introduced a paid subscription service, ChatGPT Plus to its users.
