OpenAI, with its ChatGPT bot, is dominating the generative AI market
The Google search engine has been the first and main gateway to the Internet for nearly two decades, but in November 2022 it began facing its first potential competitor, the interactive chatbot (ChatGPT), which revolutionized the field of artificial intelligence, and became the talk of the hour in the technical community.
The company (OpenAI) - supported by Microsoft - dominates through the (ChatGPT) robot on the generative artificial intelligence market, if in just two and a half months of its launch it gathered more than 100 million active users per month, to become the fastest growing web application ever, and this prompted The great success of all technology companies has led to the acceleration of providing updates and new products to keep pace with this new technical revolution that we are currently witnessing.
Google was one of the first companies to respond to this uproar, as it hastened last week to announce the launch of the first beta version of Bard, the new competitor to the ChatGPT bot.
So what is Google Bard, how do you use it, and what are its features? Here's everything you need to know about this new competitor in the AI market:
Firstly; What is Google Bard?
(Google Cool) Google Cold; It is an interactive chatbot based on artificial intelligence from Google that can respond to various inquiries and requests in a conversational manner. It is supposed to work similarly to the ChatGPT bot, with the biggest difference being that the Google bot will pull its information from the web.
Bard will not be just a chat bot, but it is expected that Google will integrate its capabilities into its search engine, in order to provide a summary answer to what the user is searching for, in addition to the usual traditional search results in the Google engine, although it is not widely available for use. Until now.
secondly; When did Google announce Bard?
Google announced Bard on February 6 in a statement from CEO Sundar Pichai posted on Google's blog. If (Pichai) confirms that it will not be just a chat bot, its capabilities will be integrated into the Google engine.
Pichai touched on the variety of information that Bard can provide, from simplifying complex scientific concepts, to knowing the latest sports news or teaching the user new skills. And that Bard will not be limited to serving the average user, but rather Google will provide an API for developers so that they can take advantage of its features and integrate them into their applications.
Third; What is LaMDA?
Google Bard bases its work on (LaMDA) the large language model developed by Google, which it revealed two years ago, and it is similar to (GPT-3) the language model used in the ChatGPT bot.
The LaMDA model differs from other language models in that it is trained on dialogue, not text, so we will find that (GPT-3) focuses on creating text, while LaMDA focuses on creating dialogue.
What makes LaMDA a remarkable feat is that it can construct a conversation in a free-form manner that is not constrained by the parameters of task-based responses. The model uses concepts such as user intent, reinforcement learning, and recommendations so that the conversation can move between unrelated topics seamlessly.
Google developed the (LaMDA) model based on (Transformer), the open source neural network architecture for natural language understanding that Google announced in 2017, and it is among the newest and most powerful classes of machine learning models invented so far. It is the bedrock of many generative AI applications we see today, one of which is the GPT-3 model used in ChatGPT.
In a research paper in August 2021, Stanford University researchers called the (Transformer) structure (foundation models) - which are flexible and reusable artificial intelligence models that can be applied to almost any field or industrial task - because they see it as leading a quantum leap in artificial intelligence. It has over the past few years expanded our imagination of what is possible
Google says about (Transformer): "This structure produces a model that can be trained to read many words, for example: a sentence or a paragraph, and also pays attention to how these words relate to each other, and then expects the words that it thinks will come next."
So the LaMDA model understands conversations because it has been trained to understand the context of the conversation, and this allows it to keep up with the flow of the conversation and give the feeling that it is listening and responding accurately to what is being said.
The initial version of Bard will use a prototype lightweight version of LaMDA, because it consumes less computing power, which helps Google serve more users to get feedback and suggestions faster.
In addition to the LaMDA form, Bard will pull information from the web to provide responses. "This mechanism will provide users with new, high-quality responses," Pichai said.
Fourthly; How do you use Google Bard?
Google Bard has not yet been released to the general public, as it is currently testing it with a small group of trusted testers, and it will open to the public in the coming weeks.
In this regard, (Pichai) said: "We will collect the feedback of internal tests and the feedback of users who test Bard to develop the service and improve responses, to ensure that it is ready in front of the public while adhering to Google's artificial intelligence responsibility standards."
fifthly; The most important features and uses of Google Bard:
It is not yet possible for interactive chatbots to conduct full conversations like humans, but they do so by creating a wide range of digital texts that can be repurposed in almost any context, including what is trained to understand the text, including what is trained to understand the context of the dialogue, and seeks Google's Bard bot does this by:
Gather information from user and web responses to deliver new, high-quality responses.
Use a light prototype version of LaMDA for initial testing purposes, then it will evolve in future versions, which means faster responses and more accurate answers.
Collect feedback to improve the AI system in the future.
Google also seeks to revolutionize the process of collecting information and how we use search engines by developing its own artificial intelligence technologies, so it is expected that many use cases for the Google Bard robot will appear after the official launch, and the most expected are:
Get proper answers to queries using advanced artificial intelligence algorithms, as you can ask him about anything you want.
Finding information more smoothly when using the Google search engine, whether you're looking for a weather report or the latest sports scores, it can help.
Simplify complex information and explain new discoveries.
Seamlessly automate complex tasks.
Facilitate the performance of daily tasks especially for activities such as assisting with time management and scheduling.
Facilitate conversations with the user on all topics.
Google has a long history of using AI to improve search, and now it's using the latest AI technology to develop entirely new ways to interact with information, whether through language, images, audio or video.
