AI Battle: Google Enhances Bard to Compete Against OpenAI’s ChatGPT

While ChatGPT has gained our affection, Bard possesses irresistible qualities that leave us longing—for no cost at all.

The realm of AI advancements is witnessing the emergence of a new rivalry.

Google’s recently updated AI chatbot, Bard, is posing a formidable challenge to OpenAI’s ChatGPT,

potentially disrupting its dominant position in the field.

During the Google I/O conference on May 10, Google unveiled its annual event and made Bard widely

accessible to users worldwide.

With a host of upgrades designed to maintain its competitive edge, Bard is now offered for free and can

be accessed in over 180 countries.

Google initially introduced Bard in February, but its performance fell short of expectations.

It faced criticism after generating misleading information, such as falsely claiming that the James Webb

Space Telescope captured the first images of “exoplanets.”

This incident resulted in a decline in Google’s stock value and caused its parent company, Alphabet, to

incur a loss of $100 billion.

The flaws in Bard’s functionality were quickly pointed out by users and led to significant repercussions for Google.

The previous iteration of Bard was trained using a large language model called LaMDA. However, the latest version of Bard utilizes PaLM 2, a more advanced language model. Google claims that PaLM 2 delivers superior performance compared to its predecessor, PaLM, while requiring less computational resources during inference. This improvement allows Bard to operate more efficiently and effectively in generating responses.

Decrypt conducted a thorough comparison of both models, yielding highly satisfactory results. In one test, we requested translations of phrases from English to Spanish and vice versa.

Both models performed well, but Google’s model provided additional context, enabling a better

understanding of the intended meaning rather than a mere translation.

In the realm of coding, Bard emerges as the clear winner. With support for more than 20 programming languages, it excels in tasks such as code generation, explanation, and debugging. While ChatGPT can also generate code snippets, it takes significantly longer to do so.

ChatGPT took approximately 30 seconds to respond, whereas Bard provided an almost instantaneous answer.

Internet connectivity indeed proves to be a significant advantage.

When queried about the differences between OpenAI’s GPT-4 and Google’s PaLM2, ChatGPT couldn’t

On the other hand, Bard was able to provide an answer, showcasing its ability to access more up-to-date

information due to its internet connectivity.
