Google has recently introduced a new AI technology called “Bard”. The release of Bard has been highly anticipated as it is a response to OpenAI’s popular language model, GPT-3, and is being referred to as the “ChatGPT killer”.
Google’s Bard is a deep learning-based language model designed to generate human-like text. It is intended to be used by developers to build conversational AI systems for a variety of applications, ranging from chatbots to virtual assistants. The technology behind Bard has been under development for some time, but Google has only recently made it available to the public.
One of the major differences between Bard and other language models is the source of its training data. Unlike other models like GPT-3, which are trained on a massive corpus of internet text, Bard is trained on a more limited set of high-quality sources such as news articles, academic papers, and websites. This approach is aimed at providing a more accurate representation of human language, while avoiding the biases and misinformation commonly found on the internet.
However, there are also some concerns associated with using data collected from websites about current events. For example, if the information is biased or incomplete, it could result in a distorted representation of the world in the AI model. This could have serious consequences, such as spreading false information or reinforcing harmful stereotypes.
Google has long relied on webmasters making their information available to be indexed by Google and search engine bots. In return, webmasters receive traffic from Google, which can be monetized through advertising or other means. However, if users no longer need to visit websites for information, what incentive is there for webmasters to continue providing it? This could lead to a decline in the amount of information available on the web, which would negatively impact Google’s ability to provide accurate and relevant search results.
Google’s primary source of revenue is advertising, particularly search advertising, which accounts for the vast majority of its revenue. The company operates one of the largest online advertising platforms, Google AdWords, which allows businesses to advertise their products and services alongside search results on Google.com and other Google properties. Google also offers a range of other services, including email, cloud storage, and productivity tools, all of which are supported by advertising.
While the release of Google’s Bard is an exciting development in the world of AI, there are also important concerns that must be addressed. Google will need to ensure that the data used to train the AI model is high-quality and free of bias, and find a way to incentivize webmasters to continue providing information even as AI becomes more prevalent. Additionally, Google’s reliance on search advertising as its primary source of revenue could be impacted if users begin to rely more on AI for information. Only time will tell if Bard will live up to its potential and become the “ChatGPT killer”, but for now, it remains an open question.
