Sundar Pichai announced Bard, a conversational AI answer to OpenAI ChatGPT. Google has been a pioneer in AI and it was one of the first companies to publish AI Principles.
Bard is powered by next-generation language with conversation capabilities powered by a language model (LaMDA).
We are expecting that Google Bard would be available by the third week of February and by the next month they will open up their API to the developers. Currently, it is only available to trusted teasers ahead of making it more widely available.
The above clearly shows that Google is serious about AI. The AI war has just started let’s see how it unfolds and disrupt our day-to-day lives.
Hello World! Bard
Bard is a conversational AI service powered by LaMDA. Bard seeks access to a breadth of world knowledge with the power, intelligence, and creativity of large language models.
Below is the response from Bard for complex topics, like explaining new discoveries from NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope to a 9-year-old”
Google is going to provide AI-powered features in Search that distill complex info into easy-to-digest formats so users can see the big picture. Below is the image of how Google’s response is going to be. You can see how Bart’s response blends with Google search results.
They are planning to release a lightweight model version of LaMDA which requires significantly less computing power and helps them reach more users and look for more feedback to further improve the product.
How will Bard be different from ChatGPT?
- Google has a large amount of personal data than any other company in the world, so I personally speculate that Bart’s response would be much more personalized than ChatGPT.
- Unlike ChatGPT, I hope that result is up-to-date information.
- Google has billion of daily active users and a wider distribution network than ChatGPT. Their result would be available at the top of the search result. In case there is no need for extra information.
Bart: End of SEO
As we can see, Bart’s responses are at the top of the search result. Most people won’t have to click through a website to read it further. This could massively affect websites that are purely relying on SEO. Let’s wait and watch how the massive SEO industry unfolds hereafter.
When can Developer access Bard API?
Google is planning to make it easy, safe, and scalable for developers to build on top of their best models. By the next month of march, they will start onboarding individual developers, creators, and enterprises.
Google Cloud has a partnership with Cohere, C3.ai, and Anthropic. They will announce more details in the future.
