The battle of AI chatbot tools

According to a report by CNN, Google on Tuesday opened up a waitlist for users to gain access to Bard.

Google first announced Bard in February.

Like OpenAI's ChatGPT, Google’s Bard is built on a large language model. Both aim to generate compelling answers based on a wide range of data online.

One of the probably future advantages of Bard is it draws on information from the web to provide fresh, high-quality responses. This new AI chat tool also seeks to combine the breadth of the world's knowledge with the power, intelligence, and creativity of Google's large language models. 

The tool wants to help its users from outlining and writing essay drafts to plan lunch ideas based on what is in the fridge.

A company representative told CNN that Bard will complement Google Search. Users can still rely on the latter to check responses and sources, he added.

Google still wants to add large language models to search "in a deeper way" in the future.

Currently, tech companies are in a race to develop and deploy AI-powered tools following the success of ChatGPT

Google even recently announced that it is incorporating AI into its other tools like Gmail, Sheets, and Docs. Microsoft also announced a similar upgrade to its own productivity tools.

Meanwhile, OpenAI unveiled on March 14 its new GPT-4, which it called its “latest milestone” in its effort "in scaling up deep learning."

Bard is currently accessible in the United States and the United Kingdom only. 

There is no word on when will it be available in other regions like the Philippines.

What do you think about this?
