Google has announced the release of its conversational chatbot named Bard, which sets the stage for an AI competition with Microsoft. The latter recently invested in OpenAI, the creator of ChatGPT, a language app that can mimic human writing. Microsoft has begun integrating ChatGPT features into its Teams platform and is expected to bring the app to its Office suite and Bing search engine. This sparked concerns for Google’s dominant search engine and led to the company’s founders Sergey Brin and Larry Page being brought back to come up with a response. The release of Bard was further intensified by Google’s poor earnings and layoff of 12,000 employees to focus on AI projects.

The chatbot, based on LaMDA, Google’s Language Model for Dialogue Applications system, has been in development for years and seeks to provide high-quality responses combining the breadth of the world’s knowledge with the power, intelligence, and creativity of the company’s large language models. It is said that users will soon see AI-powered features in Google’s search engine.
