Do you know Google Bard? Google’s new artificial intelligence allows us to automatically create all kinds of texts by conversing with it in natural language. Bard was created in response to ChatGPT, OpenAI‘s AI, although its beginnings turned out to be quite disastrous and even made Google lose millions of dollars.

ChatGPT ACCESS

But Google has not given up, and is trying by all means to improve its AI in order to surpass OpenAI. According to The Information, the technology giant is forcing DeepMind, its artificial intelligence division, to help the Google Brain team in charge of developing Bard through an initiative they have dubbed “Gemini”.

The article also details a very important fact: according to a former Googler researcher, the technology company is so desperate to win the war against OpenAI that it is training Bard using data from its rival AI, ChatGPT, which is located on a website known as ShareGPT.

Jacob Devlin, a former Google AI engineer, warned the company against using ChatGPT data because it would violate the tool’s terms and conditions and Bard’s responses would be nearly identical. After allegedly ignoring these warnings, Devlin left the company and joined OpenAI.

ChatGPT ACCESS

The Verge contacted Google, which “strongly and clearly” denies using ChatGPT data: “Bard is not trained on ShareGPT or ChatGPT data,” said Chris Pappas, a Google spokesman. Other sources consulted by the media say otherwise, and claim that the company would have made use of such data, although it stopped doing so right after Devlin’s warnings.
