About Google’s Bard:

  • Bard is Google’s own conversational AI chatbot and is based on LaMDA.
  • It draws on information from the web to provide fresh, high-quality responses.
  • In short, it will give in-depth, conversational and essay-style answers just like ChatGPT does right now.
  • A user will be able to ask Bard to explain new discoveries from NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope to a 9-year-old, or learn more about the best strikers in football right now, and then get drills to build your skills.
  • Bard is built on Transformer technology – which is also the backbone of ChatGPT and other AI bots.
  • Transformer technology, pioneered by Google and made open-source in 2017, is a neural network architecture, which is capable of making predictions based on inputs.
  • Currently, Bard looks like a limited rollout and it is hard to say whether it can answer more questions than ChatGPT.
  • Google has also not made clear the amount of knowledge that Bard possesses.
    • For instance, with ChatGPT, we know its knowledge is limited to events till 2021.
