Google has finally revealed Bard, an alternative to ChatGPT. The new AI-powered chatbot uses its own language model, LaMDA (Language Model for Dialogue Applications). Sundar Pichai, CEO of Google, unveiled the first details about Bard during an earnings call a few days before the release. ChatGPT received positive feedback from users all across the world. As a result, Google management issued “code red”.
Moreover, Google claims in a blog post that it is making Bard available to “trusted testers”. Soon, it will be more freely accessible to the general public in the upcoming weeks. Contrarily, ChatGPT is accessible for free testing. In just two months, it recently reached 100 million users.
What is Google Bard?
Bard, to put it simply, is an artificial intelligence-based chatbot that can converse with users in a natural manner.
According to Google, Bard uses online resources to produce original, excellent responses. LaMDA, Google’s language model built on the Transformer neural network architecture, serves as the brain of Google’s chatbot. Plus, ChatGPT utilizes the Transformer-based GPT-3 language paradigm. What makes it interesting is, Transformer was created by Google Research and released for use in 2017.

Who has access to Bard?
Google Bard is currently only accessible to a small group of people for testing purposes. It is a “lightweight model version of LaMDA” that uses a lot less processing resources. This will make it possible for Google to get more feedback.
In the blog post, Google says: “We’ll combine external feedback with our own internal testing to ensure Bard’s solutions meet a high bar for quality, safety, and groundedness in real-world knowledge.”
The business needs feedback for Google Bard, which is powered by LaMDA. In 2021, the industry powerhouse in software unveiled LaMDA. The language model, according to a former colleague, allegedly responded in racist and sexist ways. Additionally, the employee claimed that LaMDA is “sentient.”
Conversely, ChatGPT also provides incorrect information. OpenAI, the chatbot’s creator, asserts that when new updates are consistently released, the chatbot will get better. According to a recent report, Google’s LaMDA is improving its reaction times and occasionally outperforming ChatGPT.
