Google has annoucened a new AI system called “Bard” that promises to revolutionize the way we interact with technology. This new AI system is designed to understand and respond to natural language, making it much easier for users to communicate with their devices & will be rolled out in the coming weeks.
Here is a screenshot from Google showing how BARD might respond to a question:
To be clear, BARD is different to Google Search. The above screenshot is just highlighting the AI features that will be rolling out in Google Search.
ChatGPT gained over 100 million users worldwife in just under 3 months of its launch beating other platforms like Tik Tok, Instagram
What is BARD?
Google explains that BARD is an experimental conversational AI service which is powered by LaMDA (Language Model For Dialogue Applications)
Bard is built using the latest advancements in artificial intelligence and machine learning, allowing it to understand and respond to human speech with greater accuracy and speed than ever before. This is a huge step forward for AI, as it has been a challenge for developers to create systems that can truly understand the complexities of human language.
This new technology/feature was in response to the increasingly popularity of ChatGPT since its launch in Nov 30th 2022. Since then, ChatGPT has gained over 100 million users in just under 3 months and has even rolled out ChatGPT Plus
Soon, you’ll see AI-powered features in Search that distill complex information and multiple perspectives into easy-to-digest formats, so you can quickly understand the big picture and learn more from the web: whether that’s seeking out additional perspectives, like blogs from people who play both piano and guitar, or going deeper on a related topic, like steps to get started as a beginner.
- One of the key features of Bard is its ability to understand context. This means that it can understand the meaning behind words and phrases, even if they are used in different ways. For example, if you ask Bard to “turn on the lights,” it will understand that you want to activate the lights in the room, even if you’ve never used that phrase before
- Another exciting feature of Bard is its ability to learn and adapt over time. As more people interact with the system, it will become smarter and more capable of understanding and responding to a wider range of requests. This means that the more you use Bard, the better it will become at understanding and responding to you
Google will make it easy for developers to integrate Bard into their own products and services. This means that we can expect to see a wide range of products and services that use this technology in the near future. From smart home devices to virtual assistants, the possibilities are truly endless.
What Is LaMDA?
I mentioned earlier that BARD is powered by LaMDA, which was actually launched 2 years ago, at the 2021 Google I/O keynote. LaMDA was showcased as Google’s next generation language & conversational capabilities.
It is designed to generate coherent and diverse text from a given prompt, allowing it to respond to a wide range of questions and provide detailed information on a variety of topics.
LaMDA is also capable of generating text that is both informative and interesting, making it a powerful tool for generating articles, blog posts, and other types of content. By using LaMDA, developers can create AI systems that are capable of generating high-quality text, making it easier and more efficient to create content for websites, apps, and other platforms.
The launch of Bard is a major milestone in the development of AI. With its advanced natural language processing capabilities, it has the potential to transform the way we interact with technology, making it easier and more intuitive than ever before. Whether you’re a tech enthusiast or just someone who wants to control their home with their voice, BARD is sure to be a game-changer.
