- Google Launches Bard to Counter OpenAI's ChatGPT
This comes after Microsoft announced a billion-dollar investment into OpenAI, putting pressure on Google to demonstrate its capabilities in the rapidly-growing field of AI.
According to CNBC, a team of Google engineers working on AI technology have been tasked with creating a response to ChatGPT. The service, previously developed under the project name "Atlas," is part of Google's "code red" effort to challenge the popularity and success of ChatGPT.
Google CEO Sundar Pichai has been emphasizing the importance of AI for the past six years and is now putting this into practice through the creation of Bard. The AI technology will be powered by "Language Model for Dialogue Applications" (LaMDA), a system that was launched in 2021.
Additionally, Google plans to incorporate LaMDA and other AI advancements into its search engine to provide more helpful answers to the billions of users who use the platform. Although no specific timeline has been provided, Pichai has indicated that the AI tools will be deployed in Google's search engine soon.
This move shows Google's increasing commitment to the field of AI, as the company recently announced its investment in and partnership with Anthropic, an AI start-up led by former leaders at OpenAI. Anthropic has also created its own AI chatbot, Claude, and is focused on AI safety.
