What is Google Bard? here's how it works

Google launches Bard, its answer to ChatGPT – here’s what it looks like

Google plans to expand its experimental LaMDA-powered conversational AI service in the coming weeks.

What is Google Bard?

Google explains that Bard is an experimental conversational AI service, powered by LaMDA (Language Model for Dialogue Applications).

LaMDA was announced two years ago, at the 2021 Google I/O keynote, as Google’s next-generation language and conversation capabilities. It is now being used to create these answers for users.

Bard is powered by a lightweight model version of LaMDA, which requires “significantly less computing power,” Google said. Google said this will allow them to scale to more users while also allowing for more feedback.

Pichai also wrote:

“Bard seeks to combine the breadth of the world’s knowledge with the power, intelligence, and creativity of our large language models. It draws on information from the web to provide fresh, high-quality responses. Bard can be an outlet for creativity, and a launchpad for curiosity, helping you to explain new discoveries from NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope to a 9-year-old, or learn more about the best strikers in football right now, and then get drills to build your skills.”

Bard is experimental

Google emphasized that Bard is experimental and they are excited for this “phase of testing to help us continue to learn and improve Bard’s quality and speed.”

Who are trusted testers?

Google told us they are not the Search Quality Raters. Instead, they are a demographically and geographically diverse group of people external to Google.

These testers test Google’s products to help Google improve and understand how real users are likely to experience these products. Google said they work with a third-party supplier to provide this testing.

It is unclear how you or I can test out Bard before it launches more widely.

Earlier reports

Earlier this week, we reported Google had started work on its own version of ChatGPT, named Apprentice Bard, as well as testing a new search design integrating chat:

When a question is entered, the search results show a gray bubble directly under the search bar, offering more human-like responses than typical search results. Directly beneath that, the page suggests several follow-up questions related to the first one. Under that, it shows typical search results, including links and headlines.

Here’s how Google responded to the report:

“We have long been focused on developing and deploying AI to improve people’s lives. We believe that AI is foundational and transformative technology that is incredibly useful for individuals, businesses and communities, and as our AI Principles outline, we need to consider the broader societal impacts these innovations can have. We continue to test our AI technology internally to make sure it’s helpful and safe, and we look forward to sharing more experiences externally soon.”

What about Microsoft and ChatGPT?

Meanwhile, Microsoft has invested heavily in OpenAI, the creator of ChatGPT. Microsoft is rumored to be bringing GPT-4 to Bing search in some way in the near future. And we have already seen early screenshots of Bing’s interface with ChatGPT-style integrated into search.

Many companies, especially those in search, are taking these technologies seriously after the explosive popularity of OpenAI’s ChatGPT.

Google is now testing Bard, its answer to OpenAI’s ChatGPT. We also have gotten our first look at AI-powered features in Google Search.

Google CEO Sundar Pichai today announced the soft launch of Bard to a set “trusted testers,”

What is Bard AI?
Google has launched its own artificial intelligence (AI) chatbot, in answer to the wildly successful ChatGPT. The new conversational AI service will be named Bard and will be put out to "trusted users" before a public release in the coming weeks, Google's parent firm Alphabet Inc announced on Monday.
