announced Monday that it will launch its own
conversational artificial intelligence system
, which aims to compete with Microsoft's ChatGPT.
As reported, the company invested billions of dollars in the project.
The news comes amid the revolution created by ChatGPT.
Created by the San Francisco company Open AI, it was introduced at the end of 2022 and, in just over two months, it amassed a million users in a few days.
His great versatility is surprising: he is capable of writing essays, news or poems, holding a conversation imitating a human and answering all kinds of questions.
His only impediment is the ability to feel.
The tool has also been called a
potential threat to Google's core search business.
As reported Monday by the CEO of Google and Alphabet,
, in a post on his people blog, the AI
would go to the test with a plan to make it more widely available to the public "in the coming weeks."
Google introduced Bard, its own artificial intelligence system that seeks to compete with ChatGPT.
Without providing further details, he explained that Bard takes his information from the web "to provide
fresh and high-quality answers
", and ensures that it can be used for creative purposes, but also for informational purposes only.
In this sense, he gave some examples: "It would help a 9-year-old boy to understand the James Webb super-telescope or to learn more about the best goalscorers in soccer today."
Other uses of the Bard chat room could be, according to Pichai, planning a baby shower for a friend, comparing two Oscar-nominated movies or designing a menu based on what's available in a fridge.
ChatGPT can now also be used on WhatsApp.
"Bard seeks to combine the breadth of global knowledge with the power, intelligence, and creativity of our great language models. It draws on information from the web to deliver fresh, high-quality answers," Pichai summarized.
Specifically, Bard is based on LaMDA, the company's Language Model for Dialogue Applications system, which has been several years in development.
What is ChatGPT, the AI that Google wants to compete with
is the name of an artificial intelligence research and development laboratory with the explicit goal of making programs available to the general public.
An attempt is made to prevent a possible existential risk produced by AI from being aggravated by the concentration of these resources in a few corporations,"
Javier Blanco, PhD in Computer Science from the University of Eindhoven, Holland , explained to
This type of system, made possible by the impressive advancement of computing power, constitutes a discipline that takes large volumes of already available data to build a program that can recognize common patterns and create new data.
“ChatGPT is an example of a program capable of holding diverse dialogues in natural language. On the one hand, the system has been trained for said dialogue using techniques involving humans, both in accessing conversations from which to learn and in the subsequent process. to evaluate and improve the interactions”, he adds.
chatGPT allows you to generate text "prompts" using artificial intelligence.
In this way, ChatGPT, which is already preparing a paid version (it is currently free), has captured all online discussions since last November, when it was released to the public for free.
Its uncanny similarity to reality even raised concerns about its potential to supplant professional writers and do students' homework for them.
OpenAI said Monday that it uses Azure, Microsoft's cloud-based service, to train all of its models and that Microsoft's investment will allow it to speed up its independent research.
Azure will remain the exclusive cloud provider for OpenAI, the company said.
As with Microsoft's previous investment in OpenAI, much of the value of the deal will take the form of Microsoft giving OpenAI the Azure cloud computing power it needs to run its AI systems, two sources familiar with the company said. the deal.
