Google has introduced a new product called Bard, which is a competitor to OpenAI’s ChatGPT.

Google has announced that it is allowing select “trusted testers” to try out Bard before it becomes more widely available. The CEO, Sundar Pichai, disclosed the creation of Bard during a financial report meeting. On the other hand, ChatGPT, Bard’s competitor, is accessible for testing at no cost.

Google Bard is a conversational AI chatbot that provides answers to various questions by using information from the web. It is similar to ChatGPT. Google Bard is powered by LaMDA, which is a language model built on the Transformer neural network architecture, while ChatGPT uses the GPT-3 language model based on the same architecture.

Currently, Google Bard is not publicly available for testing, but some selected users have access to it. Google is releasing a lighter version of LaMDA, which requires less computing power, to gather more feedback. The company plans to use both external feedback and internal testing to ensure that Bard provides high-quality, safe, and accurate responses.

Bard’s Availability

Google is releasing Bard initially with a lightweight model version of LaMDA, which requires less computing power, making it easier to scale to more users and get more feedback. The company plans to combine external feedback with its internal testing to enhance Bard’s responses and to ensure higher ‘quality, safety and groundedness in real-world information’.

Trusted testers will be given access to Bard in the coming weeks, before it becomes more widely available to the public. 

Google’s introduction of Bard comes a day before Microsoft is conducting an event at its headquarters. The company is expected to introduce OpenAI’s ChatGPT to its own search engine, Bing.
