Google has announced the launch of its new AI chatbot technology, Bard, set to roll out in the near future. This news confirms prior reporting by CNBC. Bard will rival OpenAI’s ChatGPT in the AI service market.
Powered by Google’s LaMDA (Language Model for Dialogue Applications), Bard promises to deliver cutting-edge conversational technology. Before making the technology widely accessible to the public, Google will offer it to a select group of trusted testers, as stated in a recent blog post.
As reported by CNBC last week, Google is conducting internal tests on various features aimed at countering the popularity of ChatGPT, the AI chatbot partially backed by Microsoft. These tests include a chatbot called “Apprentice Bard” and new search desktop designs suitable for a Q&A format.
Google CEO, Sundar Pichai, stated that soon the company will introduce AI-powered features in Search that present complex information in an easily understandable format. This will allow users to gain a broader understanding of topics and explore related subjects, such as seeking out different perspectives or diving deeper into beginner-friendly information.
As an example, Google demonstrated how Bard can simplify complex subjects like explaining new discoveries from NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope to a 9-year-old.
These product tests come after employees raised concerns about the company’s competitiveness in AI during a recent all-hands meeting, given the sudden popularity of ChatGPT.
According to a report by CNBC, Google’s AI head, Jeff Dean, informed employees that the company is being cautious in its approach to AI due to the potential consequences of providing incorrect information. However, both Dean and CEO Sundar Pichai hinted at the possibility of launching similar AI products to the public later in the year. As a company primarily focused on web search, Google has a history of being a leader in AI innovation. In recent weeks, leaders have sought more input from employees regarding the company’s AI initiatives. In a statement on Monday, Google emphasized the importance of thorough testing for their new chatbot technology, Bard, to ensure that it provides high-quality, safe, and accurate responses.
It’s a really exciting time to be working on these technologies as we translate deep research and breakthroughs into products that truly help people. That’s the journey we’ve been on with large language models. Two years ago we unveiled next-generation language and conversation capabilities powered by our Language Model for Dialogue Applications (or LaMDA for short).
We’ve been working on an experimental conversational AI service, powered by LaMDA, that we’re calling Bard. And today, we’re taking another step forward by opening it up to trusted testers ahead of making it more widely available to the public in the coming weeks.
Bard seeks to combine the breadth of the world’s knowledge with the power, intelligence and creativity of our large language models. It draws on information from the web to provide fresh, high-quality responses. Bard can be an outlet for creativity, and a launchpad for curiosity, helping you to explain new discoveries from NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope to a 9-year-old, or learn more about the best strikers in football right now, and then get drills to build your skills.
