Google begins opening access to its ChatGPT competitor Bard

Alphabet Inc’s (GOOGL.O) Google on Tuesday began the public release of its chatbot Bard, seeking users and feedback to gain ground on Microsoft Corp (MSFT.O) in a fast-moving race on artificial intelligence technology.

Starting in the U.S. and the U.K., consumers can join a waitlist for English-language access to Bard, a program previously open to approved testers only. Google describes Bard as an experiment allowing collaboration with generative AI, technology that relies on past data to create rather than identify content.

The release last year of ChatGPT, a chatbot from the Microsoft-backed startup OpenAI, has caused a sprint in the technology sector to put AI into more users’ hands. The hope is to reshape how people work and win business in the process.

Just last week, Google and Microsoft made a flurry of announcements on AI, two days apart. The companies are putting draft-writing technology into their word processors and other collaboration software, as well as marketing related tools for web developers to build their own AI-based applications.

Asked whether competitive dynamics were behind Bard’s rollout, Jack Krawczyk, a senior product director, said Google was focused on users. Internal and external testers have turned to Bard for “boosting their productivity, accelerating their ideas, really fueling their curiosity,” he said.

In a demonstration of the site bard.google.com to Reuters, Krawczyk showed how the program produces blocks of text in an instant, different from how ChatGPT types out answers word by word.

Bard also included a feature showing three different versions or “drafts” of any given answer among which users could toggle, and it displayed a button stating “Google it,” should a user desire web results for a query.

Accuracy, however, is still a concern. “Bard will not always get it right,” a Google pop-up notice warned during the demo. Last month, a promotional video for Bard showed the program answering a question incorrectly, helping shave $100 billion off Alphabet’s market value.

Google highlighted a couple mistakes during this week’s demo to Reuters, for instance saying Bard wrongly claimed ferns required bright, indirect light in response to one query.

Bard also produced nine paragraphs of text when asked for four in another question. After that answer, Krawczyk clicked a thumbs-down feedback button in response.

“We know the limitations of the technology, and so we want to be very deliberate at the pace at which we roll this out,” he said.

  1. Many are still ignorant of how these Crypto Ponzi scammers work. I was impatient to carry out the necessary research about crypto trading. I just kept investing and earning because I was super excited after my first investment tripled in one hour. Unfortunately, I invested 258,000 USDT and ETH with this fraudulent company. I didn’t realize I was dealing with a dubious company until I tried to make an attempt to withdraw. I made a withdrawal request and noticed that my account was suddenly blocked for no reason. I was requested to pay some charges to perfect the withdrawal which I always did but they always come for more. I needed my money back at all costs since I could not afford to let it go. I did a lot of research for help and tried to see if other people had similar experiences. I discovered a forum where people mentioned that they had been through the same process and were able to recover their lost cryptocurrency funds with the help of an Ethical hacker. I hired this ethical hacker to solve my predicament and they were able to help me get back all my lost funds within 24 hours. I felt indebted to them and apart from trying to express my gratitude to him once again using this medium, I will recommend anyone who wants to recover or fix anything digital currency-related, Binary FX scammers, online romance scams, phone hacks, private investigation, and more, reach out to (cybergenie (@) cyberservices (.) com ) WHATSAPP (+ 1,2,5,2,5,1,2,0,3,9,1)… for assistance..
