Will Google Bard be the “ChatGPT killer?” I guess that is what most ChatGPT users are wondering about (myself included)! Bard is an experimental conversational AI service developed by Google and built on LaMDA technology. The chatbot is programmed to utilize the web to source the most relevant answers to questions.
As a chosen beta tester, you can access the Google AI chatbot by opening your Google app on your smartphone, where you will find the chatbot icon. Then it’s smooth sailing as you would on ChatGPT – enter your prompt and press down on that enter button.
And you are good to go by starting a conversation with the chatbot by making requests and asking it questions. Google is also actively attempting to enhance and improve the chatbot’s capabilities to provide users with exciting and new ways to interact with information.
Bard AI use cases
According to Google, its AI chatbot features numerous potential uses to simplify its user’s life and fill in knowledge gaps. Here are some of the most expected ones to look forward to:
- Get answers: If you have a query, you can ask the chatbot, which will use its sophisticated AI algorithms to generate a thoughtful and appropriate response.
- Find information with the standard engine: Whether you’re looking for a weather report or the latest sports scores, the Google Bard AI chatbot can help powered by the search engine.
- Automate tasks: The Google AI-powered chatbot can automatically take care of several activities, such as making a restaurant reservation or booking a flight. The new chatbot also has the expectancy to be able to buy them for you! Google was already finding them for you.
- Your personal AI assistant: The Google Bard AI chatbot can assist you in managing your time and ensuring that you never miss an appointment or forget to complete a critical step in a process.
- Social hub: The chatbot can also function as a social hub, facilitating user conversations in group and one-on-one settings.
“Soon, you’ll see AI-powered features in Search that distill complex information and multiple perspectives into easy-to-digest formats, so you can quickly understand the big picture and learn more from the web: whether that’s seeking out additional perspectives, like blogs from people who play both piano and guitar, or going deeper on a related topic, like steps to get started as a beginner.” -CEO Sundar Pichai.
To reduce the energy and time spent on computation, Google is developing a “lightweight model version of LaMDA.” Unfortunately, the Bard AI chatbot has yet to be widely available. Only a few users can access the Google Bard AI link for testing purposes. However, once the Bard AI link is shared, it will likely be integrated into Google Search and can be accessed by asking questions through the search bar.
