Google BARD, or Bidirectional Encoder Representations from Transformers Auto-Regressive Decoder, is a large-scale language model developed by Google. BARD is designed explicitly for generating natural language text in response to prompts. It is trained on diverse internet text, including web pages, books, news articles, and a large amount of dialogue data.
The New York Times recently ran an article that discussed how Bard competes with similar technologies, such as ChatGPT. The report noted how Google has been cautious with its release as it tries to control the unexpected behavior exhibited by this kind of technology. The article also discussed how Bard is not meant to be a search engine; it is an experimental system that shows people how to use this Chatbot. It can generate ideas, write text, and answer questions with facts or opinions. And it’s more vigilant than ChatGPT; it does not want to steer people wrong and even avoids providing medical, legal, or financial advice because it could lead to incorrect information.
ChatGPT, or Chat Generative Pre-trained Transformer, is a general-purpose language model developed by OpenAI. This Chatbot can be used for various language tasks, including language generation, question answering, and language understanding. ChatGPT is trained on an extensive collection of internet text and optimized for generating coherent and relevant responses to human input. In recent weeks OpenAI launched a newer version of the GPT-4 that allows other businesses to build the kind of artificial intelligence that powers ChatGPT into various products, including business software and e-commerce websites. ChatGPT is also based on a transformer architecture but has been explicitly fine-tuned for conversational human interactions.
Both Chatbot AI software applications simulate human conversation while following pre-designed rules to mimic real-life interactions and answer questions. Chatbots help businesses instantly engage website visitors with specific messages tailored to each visitor. Companies can build specific chatbots for each website page to target audiences based on visitors, where they came from, what content they engage with, and what stage of their buying journey.
Depending on the specific language task, BARD and ChatGPT have different strengths and weaknesses. BARD is particularly good at generating high-quality natural language, and ChatGPT has succeeded in conversational tasks and has been shown to create coherent and engaging responses to human input. In terms of performance, both BARD and ChatGPT have demonstrated impressive results in various language tasks.
