You may remember when Microsoft launched ChatGPT, which was available for testing to anyone who logged into OpenAI’s website. But with Bard, they’re taking a different approach and only allowing a limited number of users to test it during this first phase.
Have you heard about Google’s latest AI service, Bard? It’s a big deal; they’re getting ready to roll it out to the masses soon. But before they do that, they’re first giving a select group of “trusted testers” access to it.
Many companies are starting to use AI in their daily operations, from healthcare to finance and everything in between. It’s helping automate tasks, makes better decisions, and even improve customer experiences. Have you ever talked to a chatbot online? AI powers those. And speaking of language-based models, have you heard of Open AI’s Chat GPT?
Wow, Chat GPT has changed the game. People use it to write emails, code, and even do homework! But, of course, there’s always a debate about the ethics of using AI. And get this; Google just announced their own language-based AI, Bard, that’s seen as a direct competitor to Chat GPT. What is the difference between these two? Well, let’s take a closer look.
WHAT IS CHATGPT?
It’s an excellent language model trained to talk like a human! With this model, you can do amazing things like answering questions, translating text, and even summarizing long writing pieces.
CHATGPT is famous for being able to create text that makes sense and fits the context, but sometimes it can also produce biased or silly responses. So, it could be better, but it’s still pretty impressive!
It was created by OpenAI, an artificial intelligence company based in San Francisco. OpenAI is a big deal, especially with their famous deep-learning model, DALL·E, that creates images from text.
And have you heard about GPT-3? It’s a pretty impressive AI model, with 175 billion parameters and trained on 570 gigabytes of text. That’s a massive jump from its predecessor, GPT-2, which only had 1.5 billion parameters.
Because of its increased scale, GPT-3 can do things it wasn’t specifically trained for, like translating sentences from English to French, with very little training. It’s incredible what these AI models can do nowadays!
According to a tweet from Altman on December 5, 1 million people signed up for the chatbot in the five days following its release. ChatGPT had amassed 100 million monthly active users only two months after its inception, making it the fastest-growing consumer application in history by January, according to a UBS note released last week.
You know what they say, with great power comes great responsibility. And the same goes for ChatGPT. It has a lot of flexibility and can engage with you on just about any topic. But at the same time, it could get a little carried away and start imagining things that aren’t real.
Will Williams, Vice President of Machine Learning at a British AI startup called Speech Matics, put it well when he said, “The open-ended aspects of these models are a double-edged sword.” It’s all about balancing ChatGPT’s incredible flexibility and ensuring it stays grounded in reality.

WHAT IS GOOGLE BARD?
BARD is a new AI chatbot that Google has been working on. It’s fantastic because it’s powered by LaMDA, which stands for Language Model for Dialogue Applications. That means it’s designed to understand and respond to human conversation like a natural person!
The idea behind Bard is to bring together the knowledge and experience of humans with the strength, wit, and creativity of Google’s language models. So, no matter what you ask Bard, it will be able to find an answer for you using all the data available on the internet.
Bard is still in its testing phase, but the good news is that it will be available to the public soon! So, in just a few weeks, you can chat with Bard and get accurate and original answers. Exciting, right?
Chat GPT Vs. Google Bard
Even though Bard and Chat GPT are both language-based conversational AI models, there are essential distinctions in their intended applications and design.
Bard will use a material already available online, including data and sources. Bard will have access to the most recent date and will be able to deliver more up-to-current information, whereas Chat GPT’s knowledge is restricted to the events through 2021.
Bard will access a wealth of data and be integrated with Google’s search engine, providing an advantage over Chat GPT, which Microsoft supports.
While Chat GPT can make some factual mistakes and embellish stories, Google’s Bard AI is thought to give consumers more reliable information.
Due to Google’s massive data gathering, Bard AI has the edge over other AI platforms like Chat GPT regarding the breadth and scope of information it can access.
Bard can break up complex ideas into bite-sized, conversation-starting morsels. The objective is to disseminate information more widely in an understandable way and may inspire everyone, especially children, to learn. Chat GPT, on the other hand, produces material in response to the text prompt.
We’re about to face an impending AI battle. It’s anyone’s guess which AI model will come out on top, CHAT GPT or BARD. But one thing’s for sure; AI is already changing how we live and work. I mean, look around! Virtual personal assistants and smart home devices pop up left and right. However, only some people on board with the whole AI thing. People are worried about job displacement and the ethical implications that come along with AI. That’s why it’s crucial for organizations to think carefully about the pros and cons of using AI and ensure they’re using it responsibly and transparently.
