AI bots are extremely popular these days, especially since the unveilingof ChatGPT. Every individual utilizes ChatGPTin every way possible, whether for advice or a work-related task. Microsoft’s announcement that they had invested approximately 10 billion dollars in OpenAI, the parentfirmof ChatGPT, shook the internet. This time, Google has made headlines after announcing the launch of its artificial intelligence chatbot and ChatGPT rival.
Google has named its Chatbot BARD, and it is driven by Google’s laMDA technology. Google announced the release of its Chatbot on 6th Feb 2023. Google has also stated how the Chatbot is being provided to the testers for the testing process. According to the information provided by the company, BARD is going to be available for users real soon. The company also stated that they plan to launch about 20 new products this year, all of which will be based on AI. We can expect an artificial intelligence war with the launch of BARD.
As we all know, ChatGPT has successfully captured the attention of millions of users, and according to a recent study, the ChatGPT user limit exceeded 20 million in the previous month. Because of the growing popularity of ChatGPT, Microsoft decided to invest so heavily in the OpenAI of ChatGPT that they announced a few days later that they would also include ChatGPT in their Azure cloud services. Now Google is launching its own AI Chatbot, which googles named BARD. It is supposed that ChatGPT rival, BARD, will give tough competition to ChatGPT.
BARD is designed to operate on a lightertypeof laMDA, allowing more users to benefit from its services at the same time.
What is laMDA?
LaMDA is a project that Google has been working on for a while. Google thinks its AI model outperforms many other AI chatbots. LaMDA, according to Google, can communicate more effectively than any human. A lighter version of this technique is employed to ChatGPT rival, BARD, to enable several users to utilize BARD’s services concurrently.
In order to improve customer happiness and the quality of the results that users receive, Google plans to integrate artificial intelligence (AI) technologies into its search engine. The Google search engine may display a straight response to the inquiry when AI technology has been added to it rather than providing links to various websites.
According to Google, BARD can advise you on what to prepare for lunch or supper based on the items you have on hand. BARD would also be able to provide straightforward answers to challenging topics. In order to offer its customers the most recent information and to help them understand things better, BARD will employ laMDA as well as data found on the internet. There won’t be many differences between ChatGPT and BARD other than that.

Does Chatgpt threaten Google in any way?
With the release of ChatGPT, an AI chatbot, and its growing popularity among humans, Google began planning its own AI-based chatbot. Google’s concerns began the day ChatGPT was introduced.
- Chatgpt has drawn users’ attention away from Google’s search feature. Normal day-to-day searches are now conducted on ChatGPT rather than on Google. Chatgpt can answer common queries, write articles and essays for its users, and can also generate new lyrics for songs. It can even discover problems in your code, assisting you with your coding. Many of these topics were previously looked for using the Google search engine, but consumer priorities have shifted dramatically.
- One of the gmail inventors even stated on social media that with the debut of ChatGPT, Google might have 2 to 3 years before becoming fully obsolete.
- Microsoft has also made significant investments in the openAI chatbot ChatGPT, and it has been reported, though not verified, that Microsoft plans to incorporate ChatGPT into Bing, Microsoft’s search engine.
- Google’s profits last week were unremarkable and fell short of investors’ expectations, owing to users’ interest in ChatGPT. Google intends to focus on AI-based initiatives,
- According to a recent study, ChatGPT ranks foremost among all applications with the most potential for growth in the future.
Google and other technology-related companies like Microsoft are trying their best to enter the field of artificial intelligence before it is too late
How did the market react?
The company’s employees were not pleased with the unexpected debut. Even before the introduction or existence of ChatGPT, Google was unsure whether or not to reveal its AI-based chatbot. If the results were incorrect, the firm would suffer considerably.
Facebook also released its AI-based feature, which they had to delete due to customer criticisms of the product providing inaccurate and biased responses. Within hours of its release, Facebook withdrew the recently announced AI-based product from the internet.
Some users believe that providing incorrect answers on occasion is not a cause for concern when working with AI-based projects. Other users are opposed to the use of AI because it produces incorrect results. ChatGPT often gives wrong answers. When asked about depression or any other mental illness, it frequently suggests suicide. There are numerous examples of ChatGPT failing to provide the correct answer to users
Is AI the end of the web?
Since Google plans to incorporate its AI chatbot into its search engine, AI-based chatbots get their responses from material published on various websites. With the incorporation of AI into its search engine, it would begin to give one-phrase answers like ChatGPT, reducing traffic on websites, causing them to produce less income and finally expire. If such is the case, chatbots will quickly run out of current information.
Well, I guess not. The goal of changing search engines is to provide people with a piece of better knowledge in less time. People do not need to switch between websites in order to obtain accurate information. Nobody knows what will happen following the merger. There are several alternatives. Maybe something better is on the way.
Google has been undisturbed for a long time, but with the development of ChatGPT and the partnership of ChatGPT with Microsoft, things are about to change depending on how well both companies employ the ai features in their search engines and whether BARD is any better than ChatGPT. With the advent of ChatGPT rival BARD, all of this uncertainty will be clarified.
