ChatGPT's rival Google's AI service 'Bard' is publicly available.
Based on a technology that Mountain View has been working on for years, Bard will have a dedicated website and will not be, at least for the moment, strongly promoted by Google Search.
“Bard is here to help people increase their productivity, accelerate their ideas,” says Sissie Hsiao, one of the managers working on Bard.
The Google chatbot will initially be available to a limited number of users in the United States and Great Britain, with more users, countries and languages gaining access over time.
Bard is based on "a great search language model, specifically a lightweight and optimized version of LaMDA".
And here is the difference compared to ChatGpt: the Mountain View solution exploits the updated resources extracted from the network, while the OpenAI one uses a dedicated proprietary database.
