Introducing Bard, Google’s Response To ChatGPT

The search giant’s new chatbot is still being tested, but is set to launch in the coming weeks with an API available for developers to build into their own creations.

As the hype builds around startup OpenAI’s chatbot, ChatGPT, Google is keen to stay ahead of the Microsoft-funded competition. To that end, the search giant will roll out its own version of the technology named Bard over the coming weeks.

Sundar Pichai, Google’s CEO, has announced that Bard is already available to “trusted testers” and is designed to harness the “breadth of the world’s knowledge” behind a conversational-looking interface. Pichai did not announce concrete plans to integrate Bard into the company’s main search box, instead pointing to a novel and more cautious use of the technology to enhance conventional searches.

The news of Google’s foray into chatbot-style AI comes after Microsoft’s recent investment of $10 billion into ChatGPT’s parent company, OpenAI. ChatGPT has grown into an internet sensation over the last few months, however, some experts advise caution after noticing that the bot is prone to making up answers or copying its responses from other online sources.

Interestingly, the ChatGPT engine is built on top of an AI model known as Transformer, which Google itself first invented. After Google researchers listed severe limitations in the concept in a 2020 paper, two prominent ethical AI researchers, Timnit Gebru and Margaret Mitchell, were fired from the search giant, while others are said to remain frustrated at Google’s hesitancy to harness the technology thoroughly.

So what differences can we expect from Google’s new Bard software when it releases? In Sundar Pichai’s blog post on Monday, the CEO offered the example of asking Bard “to explain discoveries made by NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope in a way that a 9-year-old might find interesting”. Bard responds in a conversational bullet-point style, with the first one reading, “In 2023, The JWST spotted several galaxies nicknamed green peas. They were given this name because they are small, round, and green, like peas”.
