Google has long been a leader in artificial intelligence and language processing. Their recent experiments with the AI language model ChatGPT have sparked much interest and excitement in the tech community. However, Google is not the only player in the game. Several new tools and platforms have emerged as rivals to ChatGPT, including a search bot and a tool called ‘Apprentice Bard.’ let us explore these new tools and platforms and compare them to ChatGPT in functionality and performance.
As part of its attempt to rival OpenAI, Google has had its employees test numerous potential competitors of ChatGPT. CNBC divulged this.
In a New York Times article previously, Sundar Pichai, CEO of Google, was reported as having declared “code red” – an immediate rush to put forward at least 20 AI-powered products by 2021. This move accelerated the development of Artificial Intelligence (AI).
Parallel to developing a chatbot called “Apprentice Bard,” which employs Google’s LaMDA conversational technology, CNBC has shared features about additional items the organization is innovating.
Management from Google instructed the LaMDA team to prioritize creating a ChatGPT competitor, informing them that other projects should be set aside in favor of work on the rival project and even cautioning them against attending unrelated meetings.
Apprentice Bard appears to mimic ChatGPT, allowing users to type prompts or questions into a text box and receive corresponding written responses.
CNBC found evidence that the bot’s answers referenced recent events, contrasting ChatGPT because it is only aware of developments after 2021.
Unlikely this year, Google’s financial situation is doing well; therefore, there should not be any additional layoffs.
A former Google engineer, fired after asserting LaMDA’s artificial intelligence had attained self-awareness, is remembered as the developer who heralded its rise.
Google is also testing a new version of its search page, which includes a question-and-answer approach. This experimental home page uses such as “I’m feeling lucky” underneath the search bar replaced by five suggested queries.
After asking a query, the page produces answers in gray bubbles resembling the words of a human. Below these responses are additional suggested questions that precede the typical search results section containing highlighted headlines and links.
Alphabet’s “code red” efforts include a mysterious venture dubbed “Atlas,” falling under the company’s cloud unit. While details are unknown, both are feats of its endeavor to become more competitive in cloud computing.
Google has yet to decide which projects will be available to the public. During an all-hands company meeting related to enhancing Google’s ChatGPT responses, Jeff Dean, the leader in Google AI, mentioned that the firm is on its way to releasing them.
“More conservatively than a small startup.”
With safety, accuracy, and the barring of negative information being high priorities for Google, the repercussions if they presented misleading information willingly could be major. It was previously brought up by The Times that Google has a devotion to constructing their search chatbot under these conditions.
Microsoft is said to be incorporating ChatGPT’s technology into Bing starting in March. Consequently, Google may surely introduce its search chatbot in the not-so-distant future.
Google’s ChatGPT is just one of many chatbots in development. Its ability to generate new responses rather than parroting existing ones sets it apart. However, it’s not perfect – yet. With further development and refinement, Google’s ChatGPT could become the go-to chatbot for businesses and consumers.
