Google introduces its experimental Conversational AI service, BARD

Google announced the imminent availability of its experimental conversational AI service, Bard, for testing. The company also intends to enhance its Search with advanced AI capabilities and entered into direct competition with ChatGPT, ChatGPT (Generative Pre-trained Transformer) is a chatbot launched by OpenAI in November 2022.).

The debut of Google AI Bard has finally arrived. Google’s latest advancement in conversational artificial intelligence, previously known as Google Apprentice Bard AI, has been renamed as the Google Bard AI chatbot.

This cutting-edge technology aims to transform the way we gather information and use search engines.

What is Google BARD?

Introducing the highly anticipated “ChatGPT killer” – the Google Bard AI chatbot, experimental conversational AI service by Google. Powered by deep learning algorithms known as large language models, this chatbot can respond to text-based questions. Utilizing the LaMDA technology, it sources the web to find the most up-to-date answers. As an experimental conversational AI service developed by Google, Bard AI continually learns from human interactions to enhance its capabilities.

Google CEO Sundar Pichai unveiled the Google Bard AI chatbot in a blog post, emphasizing the company’s focus on AI. Pichai has expressed excitement about applying cutting-edge AI research and development to solve real-world issues.

Other organizations like OpenAI have surpassed companies like Google in terms of AI advancement and applications due to the quick pace of technological progress and slower decision-making at large corporations.

OpenAI has focused on producing advanced models and allowing individuals to find their own uses for them, while Google has attempted to integrate AI into their existing business strategies.

Debuting as a streamlined version of LaMDA within Google Search, the Google Bard AI chatbot has the potential to transform how individuals discover and utilize information online.

What is LaMDA?

LaMDA is a “language model” that has sparked fear. After a Google engineer believed that LaMDA was self-aware, the AI became a subject of discussion due to its seemingly conscious answers. The engineer also speculated that, similar to humans, LaMDA expresses its anxieties through communication.

First and foremost, it is a statistical method for predicting the following words in a series based on the previous ones. LaMDA’s innovativeness lies in the fact that it may stimulate dialogue in a looser fashion than is allowed by task-based responses.

So that the conversation can flow freely from one topic to another, a conversational language model needs to be familiar with concepts such as Multimodal user intent, reinforcement learning, and suggestions.

How to use the Google Bard AI chatbot?

If you are chosen as a beta tester, all you have to do to use the Google AI chatbot is open the Google app on your smartphone and tap on the chatbot icon. Like ChatGPT, enter your prompt and hit enter!


You can initiate a conversation with the chatbot by asking questions or making requests. Google is continuously striving to upgrade and augment the chatbot’s abilities, offering new and innovative methods of interacting with information.

Google Bard AI use cases

The Google AI chatbot has several potential uses that can simplify your life and fill in knowledge gaps. The followings are just some of the most expected ones:

  • Get answers: If you have a question, simply ask the chatbot and it will use advanced AI algorithms to provide a relevant and insightful response.
  • Access information with ease: Whether you need a weather update or the latest sports scores, the Google Bard AI chatbot, powered by the search engine, can help.
  • Automate tasks: With Google AI technology, the chatbot can perform various tasks automatically, such as making a restaurant reservation or booking a flight. It is also expected to be able to purchase items for you.
  • Personal AI assistant: The Google Bard AI chatbot can aid you in managing your schedule, ensuring that you never miss an appointment or overlook a critical step in a process.
  • Social hub: The chatbot also serves as a social hub, facilitating conversations in both group and individual settings.

How to access Google Bard AI?

Currently, only a small number of people have access to the Google Bard AI link for testing purposes. To reduce the amount of time and energy spent on computation, Google is developing a “lightweight model version of LaMDA.”

Unfortunately, the Google Bard AI chatbot, referred to as Bard (experimental conversational AI service), is not yet readily accessible for usage. However, once the Google Bard AI link is shared, it is expected to be integrated into Google Search and can be triggered by asking questions through the search bar. Bard utilizes information from the web to give current answers to text inputs.

The exact launch date of the Google Bard AI chatbot is yet to be determined, but Sundar Pichai mentioned its API usage on his Twitter account.


Examples of Google Bard AI

These are some of the Google Bard AI example images shared by Google:

The AI chatbot offers a response in three paragraphs to the question ‘Can you provide a comparison of the effort required to learn new technology vs updating on old one?’ before directing the user to relevant Google searches.

Another question – ‘Are you more helpful that Google’s language model called LaMDA?’

The Google Bard AI chatbot was asked for information on what a 9-year-old boy should understand about the James Webb Space Telescope and it provided a response:

Google Bard AI vs ChatGPT

What sets Google Bard AI apart from ChatGPT is its capability to incorporate current events in its answers. Although Google Bard AI has not yet been released, it is expected to differ from ChatGPT as shown by recent updates. Here’s what to expect:

  • Google Apprentice Bard AI will be able to answer real-time questions.
  • You need to make one minor adjustment to your Google settings to get your regular search results when using Google Bard AI. In ChatGPT, only text responses are returned.
  • Google Apprentice Bard is based on Lambda. ChatGPT, on the other hand, is based on GPT.
  • ChatGPT has its own plagirim detector called AI Text Classifier. This feature is not yet available for Apprentice Bard AI.
  • Google Apprentice Bard AI is, for now, completely free. OpenAI recently launched its paid plan to users called ChatGPT Plus.

In conclusion, The chatbot is powered by deep learning algorithms known as large language models and LaMDA technology, allowing it to provide real-time, up-to-date answers to text-based questions.

Google CEO Sundar Pichai highlighted the company’s focus on AI in a recent blog post, emphasizing their commitment to finding real-world solutions through cutting-edge AI research and development. Unlike OpenAI, which has primarily focused on producing advanced AI models, Google has taken a different approach by integrating AI into their existing business strategies.

LaMDA’s unique approach to generating conversational responses, based on predicting the next words in a series and its familiarity with concepts such as multimodal user intent, reinforcement learning, and suggestions, sets it apart from other language models.

The competition in the AI space is heating up, with Google’s Bard and OpenAI’s ChatGPT seemingly poised for a head-to-head battle. Only time will tell which will emerge as the dominant player in the generative AI space, but one thing is for sure, the future of AI and conversational technologies is looking brighter than ever!
