In an ongoing computational rivalry between US tech giants Alphabet and Microsoft, in which the latter appears to be taking the lead, the Google-owned Alphabet has now revealed to launch a chatbot service, which will be a huge blow to the Microsoft-backed OpenAI’s similar product ChatGPT.
In all transparency, the advent of ChatGPT from Microsoft has been posed as one of the biggest challenges to its rival tech major Google in recent times.
However, in a good blow to the same, Alphabet Inc has announced to launch its own chatbot service and add more artificial intelligence for the Google search engine and for the developers.
The CEO of Alphabet, Sundar Pichai said in the latest blog post that the California-based multinational company is going to launch its own conversational artificial intelligence service called ‘Bard’ and will test users for feedback at present.
Once this is in play, the company will conduct a public release of Bard in the upcoming weeks.
“Bard seeks to combine the breadth of the world’s knowledge with the power, intelligence and creativity of our AI,” he said.
Pichai added that Google has also sorted plans to add artificial intelligence features to its search engine that will curate material for complex queries or questions like whether learning guitar or piano is easier.
This is because at present, Google gives answers to such questions picked from elsewhere on the Web.
Microsoft has said it plans to imbue AI into its all its products and on Tuesday plans to brief news outlets on developments it did not specify, with its CEO Satya Nadella, stated Reuters.
The CEO of OpenAI, Sam Altman will also be attending this event, as per a tweet.
Just like its rival chatbot, Google’s Bard too can be seen inviting users to provide a prompt, while giving a warning that the response may be inappropriate or inaccurate, a demo of the service showed.
