Google’s chatbot Bard AI spreads its wings and is now available in 180 countries, including India. Bard AI, the conversational AI (artificial intelligence) service that is powered by Language Model for Dialogue Applications (or LaMDA) was launched in March 2023 in the US and UK. Google has introduced its AI-powered chatbot as a rival of ChatGPT by Microsoft which has dominated the conversational AI arena since its onset.

When Bard was launched two months ago, it came with a similar set of functionalities as ChatGPT. The platform is a language model, trained to provide comprehensive, informative and human-like answers to a range of questions and prompts. It is capable of writing poems, musical pieces, codes, drafting emails and letters and even responding to open-ended or complex questions.

Bard is available to users who have a Google account. Once you sign in, you can access the platform through where you have the opportunity to “Try Bard.” It then asks you to agree to the privacy terms and conditions before eventually directing you to the platform. It also further informs you that Bard is still in the trial phase and is liable for errors.

The conversational AI had a rough start when it provided incorrect information, stating that Nasa’s James Webb space telescope had been used to take the first picture of exoplanets. However, since then, Google has introduced more features, primarily coding and accuracy associated, to the platform.

The platform is now able to generate code in 20 different languages, provide debugging solutions and teach coding to beginners. Bard’s accuracy and fluency have also improved significantly and has also been given the ability to translate languages as well as write various forms of creative content.

Despite having similar functionality as ChatGPT, what makes Bard unique is its data source. While ChatGTP was trained on massive text like Common Crawl, Wikipedia, books, articles, and documents’ content from the internet, Bard on the other hand is trained on Infiniset which not only has text like Common Crawl, Wikipedia and documents but also conversation and dialogues from the internet. Bard is also capable of searching the internet in real-time, whereas ChatGPT’s sources end in 2021 and are not updated on current events.

Unlike ChatGPT which has been integrated into Microsoft’s Bing search, Bard is a stand-alone tool that is only available to Google users. Bard is also far more user-friendly allowing you to check its responses and explore its source. While ChatGPT is better at churning out large amounts of text, Bard’s responses are more concise and humanlike.

Bard is Google’s chatbot that is designed to compete with Microsoft’s ChatGPT. It is a powerful tool that has the potential to revolutionize the way we interact with computers. With its ability to provide comprehensive, informative, and human-like answers to a range of questions and prompts, Bard is already being used by businesses, students, and individuals all over the world. As Google continues to improve Bard, it is likely to become an even more valuable resource in the years to come.
