Google Search is launching its own ChatGPT-style AI called Bard next month
Google is bringing generative AI to search results next month.
At Google’s Live From Paris event on Wednesday, the search giant revealed new details about Bard, its conversational AI technology. Bard, a ChatGPT-style competitor was announced earlier this week — a day before Microsoft unveiled its updated version of Bing, powered by OpenAI’s artificial intelligence technology.
Google showed a demo its conversational AI tech in action.
In the announcement, Google explained how there’s often no straightforward question that users are searching for. “If you ask, what are the best constellations to look for when stargazing,” said Google senior VP Prabhakar Raghavan, “new generative AI features will help [Google] organize complex information and multiple viewpoints, the right insights. With this, you’ll be able to quickly understand the big picture and then go on to explore different angles.”
Raghanan then showed a demo of how asking this question would show a detailed, conversational answer directly on the search page.
Bard in chatbot form, which is powered by a lightweight version of Google’s proprietary language model technology LaMDA, is already available to a select group of testers, but will be available to developers, creators, and enterprises through an API next month.
