Mountain View, California – With the debut of Bard, an experimental conversational AI service, Google has joined the chatbot field. The new service, which is driven by Google’s Language Model for Dialogue Applications (LaMDA), will be provided to a small number of testers before being made available to the general public in the coming weeks.
Sundar Pichai, CEO of Google, indicated that the goal of Bard is to combine global knowledge with the intelligence and creativity of Google’s big language models. To give new, high-quality replies, the chatbot will get information from the web.
Google will first provide a lightweight model version of LaMDA, which will take fewer computer resources and allow the firm to grow to more consumers. These users’ feedback will be merged with Google’s own testing to increase the quality, safety, and groundedness of Bard’s replies.
Pichai also discussed the importance of AI in the transformation of information into knowledge, stating that AI can help people get to the core of what they’re searching for more effectively and make it simpler to convert information into usable knowledge. He also said that Google would be integrating AI-powered capabilities in Search in the near future to deliver readily digestible answers to complicated inquiries.
Finally, with the introduction of Bard, Google hopes to apply its experience in AI and language processing to the chatbot arena, providing consumers with a new method to acquire information and knowledge. The company’s ongoing attempts to increase the quality and accuracy of Bard’s replies will be critical to its success.
