After the Google launched “Bard” in response to AI chatbot sensation ChatGPT, Alphabet Inc (GOOGL.O) and rival Microsoft (MSFT.O) are once again engaged in a battle to control the online zeitgeist.
The next Chrome-versus-Internet Explorer or Gmail-versus-Hotmail battle may have already begun when Microsoft stated it would have an event at its Redmond offices to unveil its own artificial intelligence only minutes after Google announced the debut of Bard on Monday.
Since it became available to the general public last year, Microsoft-backed OpenAI’s ChatGPT has taken the tech world by storm as users across the world have gotten inventive with the prompts that the conversational chatbot uses to create everything from poems and books to jokes and film scripts.
White-collar workers’ time may be increased thanks to the artificial intelligence service, which may alter how consumers look for information or produce content when asked to do so.
Here are a few significant variations between Bard and ChatGPT:
HOW DO THEY ACT?
Both ChatGPT and Google’s Bard would provide similar services. In order to receive a response that sounds human-like, users will need to type in a question, a request, or a prompt.
Microsoft and Google intend to integrate AI techniques to strengthen their highly profitable search engines Bing and Google Search.
WHY DO THEY DIFFER?
Both technologies can condense complex information and different viewpoints into digestible formats, but Bard’s capacity to incorporate recent events in the responses stands out as a key distinction.
Alphabet’s Bard will undoubtedly have access to more data, even though it is not yet apparent how the two services would vary from one another.
Bard utilises online data, whereas ChatGPT has access to data through 2021.
MODEL A VERSUS LaMDA, also known as Language Model for Dialogue Applications, is the foundation of GPT Bard. The AI produced writing with such competence that a business developer last year claimed it was sentient, a claim that was largely rejected by the technology giant and scientists.
The core of ChatGPT is built on the Generative Pre-trained Transformer (GPT) 3.5 series of language models, which OpenAI released in early 2022 after completing training.
Open AI stated in a blog post that “ChatGPT occasionally writes plausible-sounding but wrong or illogical answers.”
BARD WILL BE AVAILABLE WHEN?
On November 30 of last year, OpenAI made a free research peek of ChatGPT accessible to the general public, but Bard is still exclusively accessible to a select number of testers.
In a blog post, Alphabet CEO Sundar Pichai announced that the conversational AI service would soon be broadly accessible.
ARE THERE ANY OTHER OPTIONS?
A number of big firms have increased their investments in generative AI technologies in the two months since ChatGPT’s launch, while other startups have started working on their own projects independently.
The newest company to get involved in the craze is Baidu, China’s version of Google. The name of its AI is Ernie.
