On Monday Google announced they were launching their own artificial intelligence chatbot technology called Bard, and the company said it will begin unveiling the platform in the coming weeks.

The announcement will peak the interest of another artificial intelligence service called OpenAI, whose rival ChatGPT will now directly compete with Google’s new version. The following is from CNN:

Google on Monday unveiled a new chatbot tool dubbed “Bard” in an apparent bid to compete with the viral success of ChatGPT.

Sundar Pichai, CEO of Google and parent company Alphabet, said in a blog post that Bard will be opened up to “trusted testers” starting Monday, with plans to make it available to the public “in the coming weeks.” 

Like ChatGPT, which was released publicly in late November by AI research company OpenAI, Bard is built on a large language model. These models are trained on vast troves of data online in order to generate compelling responses to user prompts.
