It looks like Google will be coming out with a rival to ChatGPT. They are calling their “experimental conversational AI service” Bard. In a blog post on Monday, Google’s CEO, Sundar Pichai laid out what it entails. With so many people buying up keywordai in .com it’s kinda cool Sundar’s last name ends with Ai.
Interestingly BardAi.com has been registered since 2003. Bard.ai is also registered. Both names are parked and for sale.
It’s a really exciting time to be working on these technologies as we translate deep research and breakthroughs into products that truly help people. That’s the journey we’ve been on with large language models. Two years ago we unveiled next-generation language and conversation capabilities powered by our Language Model for Dialogue Applications (or LaMDA for short).
We’ve been working on an experimental conversational AI service, powered by LaMDA, that we’re calling Bard. And today, we’re taking another step forward by opening it up to trusted testers ahead of making it more widely available to the public in the coming weeks.
Bard seeks to combine the breadth of the world’s knowledge with the power, intelligence and creativity of our large language models. It draws on information from the web to provide fresh, high-quality responses. Bard can be an outlet for creativity, and a launchpad for curiosity, helping you 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.
