Bard: the new AI tool revealed by Google and competitor to ChatGPT ?

The age of AI has long since arrived, but the Microsoft-backed ChatGPT has undoubtedly helped some of these technologies gain widespread acceptance. It also encouraged other businesses to start releasing their own iterations of the technology right once. Enter Bard, a conversational AI developed by Google that may soon be incorporated into its own proprietary search engine.
Although ChatGPT has some drawbacks, it can collect well-written responses to any questions. Given that Microsoft intends to include it into Bing, it could grow to be a serious competitor to Google for the first time.

While OpenAI's ChatGPT uses GPT-3.5, Google's Bard uses the LaMDA (Language Model for Dialogue Application) AI model. Given that Bard has access to current information while ChatGPT relies on training that ended in 2021, Google clearly has an advantage over Microsoft in this situation. GPT-4 will purportedly be used by Microsoft to integrate Bing, leveling the playing field.

Google CEO Sundar Pichai wrote in the blog post: "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's initial release will utilize a condensed version of LaMDA. According to Google, this will utilize substantially less computational resources, enabling them to make the technology accessible to a large user base. Google's current strategy is to make Bard accessible to "trusted testers." More and more users will have access to Bard for testing during the coming weeks. Google has huge intentions for Bard, and it seems obvious that it may eventually be integrated into the current search engine that we all use.
