Battle for Dominance: Google Launches Bard, its Competitor to OpenAI's ChatGPT

Google vs Open AI

Google has reportedly been alarmed by the success of OpenAI's ChatGPT and is working on its version of a search engine with chatbot features. Google has officially entered the conversational AI market with the announcement of Bard, an experimental service that will answer users' queries and take part in conversations. It is expected that at the 2023 May I/O meet the tech giant will reveal an AI-powered version of its engine.


CEO Sundar Pichai stated in a blog post that the software will be made available to a small group of trusted testers before becoming widely available in the coming weeks. The capabilities of Bard are still unclear, but it appears to be free-ranging like OpenAI's ChatGPT. Bard is expected to provide fresh, high-quality responses as it draws on information from the web, potentially addressing the issue of answering recent event-related questions that ChatGPT struggles with.


Google has deep expertise in the AI that powers ChatGPT, it has been cautious about sharing its tools with the public. Bard, powered by LaMDA (Language Model for Dialogue Applications), launched in 2021, is expected to answer users' queries and participate in conversations. It will also face the same challenges as ChatGPT, such as the potential to spew harmful content and false information. Google is taking steps to ensure Bard's responses are safe and grounded in real-world information, but there are concerns that the system may still make errors. The battle between Bard and ChatGPT will shape the future of AI and determine which service will become the go-to source for information and conversation.
