What is BARD? How is it different from ChatGPT? All you need to know!

Date: March 28, 2024

Google has introduced an experimental conversation AI service named Bard, powered by LaMDA . This move comes due to the pressure on Google to catch up to OpenAI's popular chatbot ChatGPT, which is backed by Microsoft.

Bard's Functioning:

Bard uses LaMDA to provide fresh, high-quality responses to user queries by drawing information from the web. It will initially be released as a 'lightweight' version of LaMDA that would require less computing power, allowing it to scale to more users and seek more feedback.

Differences between Bard and ChatGPT:

Here are some major differences between these two ai chatbots which have been breaking the internet-

1. Information source

LaMDA draws information from the web, while ChatGPT can only access information up until 2021. This could give Bard an edge in answering questions about more recent events.

2. Availability

ChatGPT is open to the public for free, with a paid version called ChatGPT Plus. Bard, however, is currently only open to a few trusted testers. According to CTN News, U.S. and U.K. residents are now able to sign up at bard.google.com for its generative AI product.

3. Creation

Bard was created by Google, while ChatGPT was created by OpenAI, a startup AI research company, which recently received $10 billion from Microsoft to integrate ChatGPT into Bing.

4. Reasons for Bard's Introduction

Google has been under pressure due to the success of ChatGPT, which quickly amassed more than a million users and reached 100 million within two months of its launch. Google wants to capitalize on the success of AI chatbot services and maintain its position as the world's largest search engine.

In Conclusion

Bard and ChatGPT are both AI-powered conversation services, but with differences in their information sources and availability. While ChatGPT is available to the public, Bard is currently limited to a few trusted testers.
