ChatGPT isn’t yet ready to pose a threat to the dominant search engine Google. After years of development with AI tools, Google has finally revealed Bard AI as the crucial next step in its AI development.
People frequently picture coming to us for quick factual responses like “how many keys does a piano have” when they think about Google. To gain a better understanding and insights, people are turning to Google more frequently.
They inquire as to whether learning the piano or the guitar is simpler and how much practice each instrument requires. It can be challenging to become an expert on a subject like this, and people frequently want to consider other points of view. Sundar Pichai, CEO of Google, wrote in a blog post that AI can be useful in these situations by synthesizing insights for problems for which there isn’t a single correct response.
In the words of Google, Bard aims to “combine the power, intelligence, and creativity of our huge language models with the breadth of the world’s knowledge.” It uses data from the internet to deliver original, excellent answers. Bard can be a creative outlet and a starting point for research, allowing you to educate a 9-year-old about recent scientific discoveries made possible by NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope or learn about the top football strikers of the present time before receiving training to improve your skills.
The Journey of Bard AI
Google introduced advanced language and conversational features in its Language Model for Dialogue Applications two years ago (or LaMDA for short). Google has been developing Bard, a conversational AI service that is currently in the testing stage and is powered by LaMDA.
In light of ChatGPT’s success, Google has now taken a further step and is letting trusted testers use it before making it readily accessible to the general public in the upcoming weeks.
Working on these technologies at this time is incredibly exciting as we turn thorough research and technological advances into solutions that genuinely benefit people. We’re initially making it available using LaMDA’s lightweight variant. We can extend to more people and get more input because this much simpler model uses a lot less computer power.
To ensure that Bard’s responses reach a high standard for quality, safety, and relatability in real-world knowledge, we’ll mix external feedback with our internal testing. Sundar Pichai, CEO of Google, wrote in a blog post, “We’re excited about this phase of testing to enable us to continue to learn and improve Bard’s quality and speed.
Google will begin enrolling individual developers, producers, and businesses the next month so they can test the Generative Language API, which is first powered by LaMDA and will eventually use several models. Google plans to develop a set of tools and APIs over time to make it simple for others to develop more cutting-edge AI applications. Startups must also have access to the required processing capacity to create trustworthy AI systems. Through its recently announced Google Cloud agreements with Cohere, C3.ai, and Anthropic, Google will aid in scaling these initiatives.
