Google Teases Bard’s Potential, Promising More Unleashing in the Next Week
Google CEO Sundar Pichai has announced that the company’s ChatGPT-powered AI, Bard, will be getting significant upgrades in the coming days. Speaking on the NYT’s Hard Fork podcast, Pichai acknowledged that Microsoft’s Bing was ahead of Google in the chatbot race, but claimed that Google’s new, more capable Pathways Language Model versions of Bard would catch up quickly.
Pichai’s tone was cautious, suggesting that Google wanted to experiment carefully with Bard’s capabilities, but he was also excited about the potential of the technology. He said AI engines like Bard and ChatGPT could be personalised to companies and individuals and claimed that the technology would be “incredibly beneficial” while admitting it also “has the potential to cause harm in a deep way.”
