Tech giant Google has come out with an answer to counter OpenAI's ChatGPT
Google CEO Sundar Pichai announced an AI-powered chatbot called Google Bard in a blog post and explained some of its basic functions. Google has also announced new AI tools for its current search engine.
Pichai announced the experimental conversational AI service will be available to the public in a few weeks after it has been used by 'trusted testers'. They will test the tooland help improve it to make it user friendly. 'We're excited for this phase of testing to help us continue to learn and improve Bard's quality and speed,' Pichai wrote in his blog.
"Bard seeks to combine the breadth of the world's knowledge with the power, intelligence, and creativity of our large language models," wrote Google boss Sundar Pichai in a blog.
Google has been conducting AI research for the past six years. Google Bard is built on Google's Language Model for Dialog Applications (LaMDA).
'Bard seeks to combine the breadth of the world’s knowledge with the power, intelligence and creativity of our large language models,' Pichai wrote in the blog post.
"Soon, you'll see AI-powered features in Search that distil complex information and multiple perspectives into easy-to-digest formats, so you can quickly understand the big picture and learn more from the web," wrote Google CEO.
ChatGPT can understand human language and can respond to a large range of questions. The bot can conduct conversations with humans and is capabale of giving a definite answer based on its searches tromenormous database of knowledge from the internet. But the negative aspect is that it may also include offensive material and disinformation.
ChatGPT, trained on a gigantic sample of text from the internet, can understand human language, conduct conversations with humans and generate detailed text that many have said is human-like and quite impressive. The bot can be used for digital marketing, answering customer service queries and also to create online content.
ChatGPT, trained using a machine learning technique called Reinforcement Learning from Human Feedback (RLHF), can also write articles, essays, speeches and songs. The AI tool is helpful for knowldge seekers since it can synthese insights for questions partilcualrly where there's no one right answer.
