Google has finally cracked and announced a rival to ChatGPT called Bard – an “experimental conversational AI service” that will be released to the public in “coming weeks”.

Like ChatGPT, the chatbot promises to be able to answer complex questions and teach you detailed topics in a conversational style. But the main difference with ChatGPT for now is that Bard will be networked allowing him to give you what says Google (opens in a new tab) it’s “fresh, high-quality answers.”

Google Bard is powered by LaMDA (short for Language Model for Dialogue Applications). Like ChatGPT, it is a type of machine learning called “large language model” that has been trained from a huge dataset and is capable of understanding human language as it is written.

Google says Bard will be open to “trusted testers” starting today, but the public will be able to start using it in the coming weeks. It’s unclear how we’ll be able to access Bard in these early stages, but Google says its AI-powered features will “begin to implement Google Search soon.”
