In a bid to compete with Microsoft’s ChatGPT, Google has announced that it is set to launch a new conversational AI chatbot, named ‘Bard’, aimed at contesting with OpenAI’s ChatGPT.

Google’s CEO, Sundar Pichai, made this known in a blog post on Monday, saying that the company was opening Bard to a group of trusted testers, ahead of making it more widely available to the public in the coming weeks.

Microsoft’s ChatGPT

ChatGPT, created by San Francisco company OpenAI, has caused a sensation for its ability to write essays, poems, or programming code on demand within seconds, sparking widespread fears of cheating or of entire professions becoming obsolete.

Microsoft backed OpenAI with $1 billion by investing the same in the artificial intelligence project. Meanwhile, with hopes that it will adapt the program to its Office suite and Bing search engine, Microsoft stated last month that it was supporting OpenAI and that it has started integrating ChatGPT features into its Teams platform.

Announcing Bard AI to Compete ChatGPT

Announcing Bard AI to Compete ChatGPT, Google’s CEO Sundar said they will be opening to a group of trusted testers, ahead of making it more widely available to the public in the coming weeks.

“Two years ago we unveiled next-generation language and conversation capabilities powered by our Language Model for Dialogue Applications (or LaMDA for short). We’ve been working on an experimental conversational AI service, powered by LaMDA, that we’re calling Bard,” the blog post read.

Google’s chatbot is supposed to be able to explain complex subjects such as outer space discoveries in terms simple enough for a child to understand. Additionally, it states that the service will carry out other, more routine duties like offering party planning advice or lunch suggestions based on the leftovers in a refrigerator.

“Bard can be an outlet for creativity, and a launchpad for curiosity, helping you to explain new discoveries from NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope to a 9-year-old, or learn more about the best strikers in football right now, and then get drills to build your skills,” the Google CEO wrote in his blog post.

To help its billions of users with their more complex questions, Google also intends to start integrating LaMDA and other advances in artificial intelligence into its powerful search engine. Pichai said the AI techniques would be integrated into Google’s search shortly without giving a particular time frame.
