Google has made a revolutionary announcement that promises to revolutionize how we communicate with computers. They have unveiled their new Artificial Intelligence (AI) platform, “Bard A.I.,” based on their previous ChatGPT system.
They will use natural language understanding technology to interact with users in virtually any context. With this development, Google is now poised to enter into the increasingly crowded conversational AI space as they aim to create an all-encompassing artificial intelligence assistant for every type of user imaginable.
On Monday, Google declared the beginning of the launch of their new AI chatbot technology called Bard in the up-and-coming weeks.
The confirmation of the news by CNBC follows what was previously reported: Bard will go head-to-head against ChatGPT – a machine learning program designed by OpenAI.
Google announced in a blog post on Monday that their LaMDA language model, or Language Model for Dialogue Applications, will be made available to “trusted testers” before it is released publicly. This conversation technology powers Bard from the company.
CNBC reported last week that Google has initiated a “code red” program to counter ChatGPT, the chatbot technology supported in part by Microsoft, and is currently testing certain features with their staff.
A chatbot entitled “Apprentice Bard” was featured, in addition to new desktop search designs which could be interacted with through a question-and-answer style.
CEO Sundar Pichai has announced that AI-enabled features are coming soon to Search. These features will help make complex information and multiple viewpoints easier to comprehend, allowing you to grasp the overall concept and explore related topics quickly. Examples include finding blogs from people who play both piano and guitar or gaining insight into how a beginner can get started in an activity.
The company used Bard – an AI writing assistant – as an example to demonstrate its potential. They showed how it could be used to explain complex topics, such as the recent discoveries made by NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope, in a way that was relatable and understandable to a 9-year-old.
After the recent all-hands meeting, during which employees expressed worries concerning the company’s AI competitive advantage in light of ChatGPT’s sudden success, product tests were conducted.
In a CNBC report, Jeff Dean – Google’s AI chief – informed his company’s staff that their AI capabilities are much more than what has been revealed to the public. In providing wrong information and thus is moving. However, he and Pichai teased that Google may launch similar products to the public sometime this year.
Jeff Dean says:
“More conservatively than a small startup.”
In recent weeks, Google has been calling on its workforce to provide input as they continue to prioritize web search and advance its AI capabilities. The company has long been considered a leader in the artificial intelligence sector.
Monday, the company highlighted the importance of rigorous testing and mentioned combining external feedback with their internal testing procedures to ensure that Bard’s responses surpass a high standard regarding quality, safety, and accuracy concerning relevant information.
Google has announced its A.I.-based chatbot, Bard, in response to OpenAI’s ChatGPT. While both systems are still in development, it is clear that chatbots powered by artificial intelligence are becoming more and more advanced. It will be interesting to see how these two systems evolve and impact online communication.
