A waiting list for Google Bard opens

Users from the United States and the United Kingdom will be the first to be activated. We must be more patient.

Off A blog post Google opens waiting list for Bard to compete with ChatGPT and Bing Chat At least if you live in the US or the UK. When we want to record, we see that Bart is not yet available in our country. Google says it will offer Bard in more countries and languages ​​soon, without giving a timeline.

Bart is built on a ‘lite’ version of Lambda, an LLM model developed in-house by Google. The tech giant sees this tool as an addition to its popular search engine. Bard’s capabilities are similar to ChatGPT and Bing Chat. You ask a question in natural language and the AI ​​searches for the best answer. Google makes it very clear in the announcement that you can’t always expect the right answer.

Fast, but very limited

Since we don’t have access to Bard yet, we’re basing it on other people’s first-hand experiences on the edge. American news media note that Bart is significantly faster than its competitors, partly because of its low number of users. Due to the popularity of ChatGPT, the servers are sometimes overloaded.

Bard has more knowledge about current events than ChatGPT. OpenAI’s knowledge of the working GPT language model will not extend beyond 2021, while Google says it will continue to update Bard’s encyclopedia. Yet Bart can say complete nonsense, notes The Verge. That’s why Bart currently shows three answers, and testers can choose the best answer and improve the model.

The Verge’s final finding is that Bart is in a much tighter straitjacket than Bing Chat. The abuse of Bing Chat in its early weeks has become legendary, but Google doesn’t want to make headlines with Bard’s outlandish statements. The number of questions you can ask per session is also limited.

It may have something to do with Bart’s tumultuous start. The advertisement is completely incorrect due to factual error and false event in the advertisement material. Google has been very cautious about opening Bard since it wasn’t able to move fast enough at the time of Bing Chat’s announcement.

Google may have finally entered the AI ​​race, but it’s mostly chasing Microsoft this time around. OpenAI last week announced GPT-4, the next generation of the LLM model. It supports more languages ​​and can ‘read’ images. Bing will soon be able to generate its own images by adding Dall-E to the search engine.
