Google recently launched ChatGPT rival Bard. Bard, which is currently available in the US and UK, is available with pre-approval. So, what will Google’s Bard Artificial Intelligence tool offer us? We’ve gathered what we’ve learned so far in this article.
“Today we are starting to unlock access to Bard, an early experiment that lets you collaborate with productive AI” Sissie Hsiao, VP of Product at Google, and Eli Collins, VP of Research, wrote on the company blog. Goole Bard was a long-awaited tool by users. I can say that we were a little saddened by the fact that this tool did not open to the whole world and started on its way with a certain user base.
When we look at the statements made, we see that Bard can be used to increase productivity, accelerate idea generation, and arouse curiosity. It is a mystery when Bard will open to all users around the world. Google says the artificial intelligence tool continues to be developed and will be further improved with selected users. In a sense, the company is trying to optimize its artificial intelligence tool by getting feedback from many more users and its own tests.
Google executives say one of their biggest obstacles is language confusion. For now, artificial intelligence behaviors in different languages are considered to contain errors. The AI tool learns from a wide range of information that reflects real-world biases and stereotypes. And this situation can cause problems in the outputs.
In a sense, we can say that the currently used Google Bard may give false information.
What is Google Bard?
We can briefly describe Bard as follows. Bard is Google’s experimental, conversational, AI (Artificial Intelligence) chat service. It is intended to work similarly to ChatGPT, with the significant difference being that Google’s service gets its information from the web.
Bard was presented to users on February 6 with the statement made by Google and Alphabet CEO Sundar Pichai. Although Bard was introduced as a completely new concept in the announcement, the AI (Artificial Intelligence) chat service is powered by Google’s Language Model for Dialogue Applications (LaMDA), which was introduced two years ago.
LaMDA is a platform built on the open-source neural network architecture Transformer, invented by Google in 2017. LaMDA is built on the GPT-3 Transformer, the language model that ChatGPT runs on. Since it is open source, Google continues through this structure. Just like in container architecture. It’s good for me to point this out. In addition, Google Bard is built on the LaMDA bot, which engineers call ‘sentient’.
Bard’s first release will use a lightweight model version of LaMDA because it requires less computing power and can scale to more users. In addition to LaMDA, Bard will use all the information on the web to provide a response. It is known where to get the records on the web. Records are collected through services offered by Google. It will create a resource for Bard. I can’t even think of what to do with the right use of this resource.
The use of LaMDA can be said to contrast sharply with the artificial intelligence chatbots in the GPT series, such as ChatGPT and Bing Chat, which use LLM.
Google opened the Bard waiting list on March 21, 2023. The waitlist will provide permanent access to limited users in the US and UK. Google will collect early user feedback to continue improving the AI chatbot.
