Is Bard To Be or Not To Be? Google Answers the Question
“Bard seeks to combine the breadth of the world’s knowledge with the power, intelligence and creativity of our large language models,” writes Google (and Alphbet) CEO Sundar Pinchai in a new blog post. The world has been waiting with 'bated breath for Google to respond to the riotous recent rise of Microsoft-backed ChatGPT, a generative AI platform that is rewriting what people in business, academia, and journalism think about writing.
Methinks that ChatGPT is not as popular within the Googleplex campus as everywhere else. So Google reportedly went “code red” last week in its efforts to turn its ongoing AI research into a platform compettive with ChatGPT. Bard is the apparent answer.
Pinchai wrote, “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.
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.”
If Bard be the music of AI, then play on!
