Index – Tech-Science – Google has also entered the AI ​​battle

After a long wait, this week after OpenAI and Microsoft, Google made its AI available Language model, which I call Google Bard, i.e. Singer. The search giant broke the news In a keyword blog post included, which revealed, among other things, that this was not yet the official debut of the platform, as it was only made available to a limited group of users.

During this early access period, you can only access the Bard through a queue, but once you’re in, you can freely use the new platform, which is what Google means by answering many questions, generating ideas and graphics, and simplifying complex topics.

They do not deny that he can make mistakes

As Index previously reported, Microsoft recently got into a nasty fight, because Bing AI started giving some users very scary answers. AI, for example, has claimed that it spies on and manipulates Microsoft employees through the webcams of their laptops — but has also hinted that it may steal nuclear launch codes to satisfy its dark desires.

Accordingly, Google was more careful with its own project, thanks to which all users were warned in advance that Bard could be wrong, which is quite natural, since it is still very much in the development stage.

Although language models are very interesting, they are not without flaws. For example, because they learn from a wide range of information that reflects real-world biases and stereotypes, these sometimes show up in their output, allowing them to provide inaccurate, misleading, or false information while presenting it with confidence. For example, when asked to share some suggestions for easy-to-keep houseplants, Bard offers convincing ideas, but still fails on some things, such as the scientific name

– can be read in the blog post written by the developers. However, according to them, we must not forget how many advantages an AI like Bard has.

Bard is also slightly different from ChatGPT and Bing AI, in that Google’s artificial intelligence provides several answers to each question, from which we can choose which one is more sympathetic to us – after which the “conversation” throws up additional options. to follow.

It is still under development

As mentioned earlier, Google Bard is still in development, so it is not yet available to the public. The search giant’s AI is currently only available from the US and UK, and to enter you must first join a waiting list, through which Google distributes invites.

Based on the examples of Bing AI and ChatGPT, in the coming weeks and months Google will definitely expand the list of countries that have access to Bard, so we’ll soon be able to try it out here.
