When OpenAI first introduced ChatGPT-4, it created a big buzz in the market, and everyone was questioning the existence of Google while waiting for Google to launch its own generative chatbot.
Not to mention, Google took its own time of months to finally release Bard in the USA and UK on the 21st of March, 2023. At the moment, Bard is available to personal account holders only, not for workspace ones. Users can join the waitlist to get access to Google’s Bard.
If you have been observing tech and artificial intelligence news around the world for a while, you would know that Google Bard is based on a bite-sized version of the company’s language model LaMDA.
When Google’s rivals released ChatGPT and Bing AI, people were eagerly waiting for Google to take action, and in the month of February, Google announced that it would be releasing Bard “in coming weeks.”
And soon after that, Google announced the public access of Bard in the USA and UK. However, Google will officially open access to Bard AI in other countries soon.
Google’s Bard’s Foundation is Feedback
In the blog by Google announcing the release of Bard, they mention that Bard is an early experiment that lets you collaborate with generative AI.
Moving further, it reads, “You can use Bard to boost your productivity, accelerate your ideas and fuel your curiosity. You might ask Bard to give you tips to reach your goal of reading more books this year, explain quantum physics in simple terms, or spark your creativity by outlining a blog post.”
In the next paragraph, Google emphasizes the importance of getting more feedback from people to improve further.
Additionally, you would be getting multiple options for the response so that you can pick the best response according to you.
Google’s Bard Promises to Focus on Quality & Safety
As Bard is using human feedback and evaluation to improve its systems, we can expect better quality and safety standards.
Not only that but to prevent misuse and spam, Google’s Bard AI will be limiting the number of dialogue exchanges in a chat. Capping the number of dialogues in a chat is a great way to eliminate the danger of AI-generated spam, misinformation, and misuse.
