Alphabet Inc (GOOGL.O) and rival Microsoft (MSFT.O) are back in a fight to govern the internet zeitgeist, with Alphabet Inc (GOOGL.O) launching "Bard" in response to AI chatbot sensation ChatGPT.
On Monday, just minutes after Google announced the introduction of Bard, Microsoft said that it would conduct an event at its Redmond offices to reveal its own AI, perhaps setting the stage for the next Chrome-versus-Internet Explorer or Gmail-versus-Hotmail battle.
Since it was made public last year, Microsoft-backed OpenAI's ChatGPT has taken the tech world by storm, with individuals all over the world getting creative with the prompts that the conversational chatbot uses to create everything from poems and books to jokes and film scripts.
The artificial intelligence service might revolutionise how users search for information or produce content on demand, freeing up time for white-collar workers.
Here are a few important distinctions between Bard and ChatGPT:
WHAT ARE THEY UP TO?
Google's Bard and ChatGPT would provide similar services. To receive a human-like answer, users will need to type in a question, a request, or a prompt.
Microsoft and Google intend to integrate AI capabilities to improve their search services, Bing and Google Search, which generate a significant amount of income.
HOW DO THEY DIFFER?
Both technologies can reduce complex material and different perspectives into simple formats, but the most noticeable distinction is Bard's capacity to include recent events into responses.
Though it is unclear how the two services will vary, Alphabet's Bard will undoubtedly have access to more data.
Bard obtains data from the internet, whereas ChatGPT has access to data until 2021.
LAMDA VS. GPT
LaMDA, which stands for Language Model for Dialogue Applications, serves as the foundation for Bard. The AI generated writing with such competence that a business developer last year referred to it as sentient, a notion widely ridiculed by the technology giant and scientists.
OpenAI's GPT, or Generative Pre-trained Transformer, was initially released in 2020, and ChatGPT is built on the GPT 3.5 series of language models, which ended training in early 2022.
"ChatGPT occasionally writes plausible-sounding but wrong or illogical answers," Open AI wrote in a blog post.
BARD WILL BE AVAILABLE WHEN?
While OpenAI released a free research peek of ChatGPT to the public on November 30 of last year, Bard is presently only available to a small group of testers.
Sundar Pichai, CEO of Alphabet, stated in a blog post that the conversational AI service will be broadly available in the coming weeks.
ARE THERE OTHER OPTIONS?
In the two months since ChatGPT's introduction, a number of big corporations have increased their investments in generative AI technologies, while a number of startups have launched their own projects.
Baidu, China's equivalent of Google, is the most recent corporation to join the craze. Its artificial intelligence is known as Ernie.
