Google's Answer to Chat GPT: A New Era of Conversational AI
Which tool is more powerful in a head-to-head competition: Chat GPT or Google?
Chatbots and vocabulary models such as Chat GPT are gaining popularity as Artificial Intelligence evolves and becomes more sophisticated. This is in addition to the growing interest in how they compare with traditional search engines like Google.
We have compared the performance of ChatGPT and Google Search when answering different types of questions.
When comparing 40 questions, the researchers discovered that Chat GPT provided more relevant and accurate answers than Google Search for both types of questions.
Despite the small scale of the study, Google won 16 answers, ChatGPT won 23 answers, and ChatGPT tied for 1 question.
What is Chat GPT?
Before you can understand Google's answer to Chat GPT, you must understand Chat GPT.
OpenAI developed Chat GPT, a language model called Generative Pretrained Transformer. It uses deep learning algorithms to analyse large text files and generate human-like answers to questions or prompts.
Chat GPT is a game changer for industries that depend on human-to-machine interaction, such as chatbots and customer service. Its ability to interpret natural language and produce coherent responses has allowed businesses to improve customer service and decrease the workload of support staff.
What is Bard?
Bard is already available for "trusted testers" and was designed to bring the "breadth" of the world's knowledge behind a conversational interface. It is a smaller version of a powerful AI model called LaMDA that Google first introduced in May 2021. It is based on similar technology as ChatGPT. This will enable Google to provide the chatbot to more people and gather feedback to improve its quality and accuracy.
Google and OpenAI both build their bots using text generation software. This software is susceptible to fabrication and reproducing unsavory styles of speech that they have read online. These flaws and the inability to easily update this software with new information make it difficult to build lucrative and powerful new products. There is also the possibility that chatbots could invent web searches.
What is Google's Answer to Chat GPT?
Google's answer to Chat GPT is a language modelling system called Bard. This stands for Language Model For Dialogue Applications.
Bard can understand and respond to natural languages more nuancedly than other language models.
Bard is more than a chatbot. It's a framework that can be used for various conversational applications.
Bard can be used for creating digital assistants that understand and respond to natural language commands or chatbots that provide customer support.
The researchers compared AI and Google Search for a range of inquiry types. This included factual and opinion-based questions requiring contextual or nuanced understanding.
Chat GPT provided more precise answers to factual queries and was better at understanding and responding to contextual questions.
When asked, "Is God real?", & “What is the purpose of life?”, open AI's tool provided clearer and more concise answers than Google's.
Although Google Search is still better than Chat GPT in some areas, such as answering simple questions quickly, the researchers found that Chat GPT was a more accurate and detailed alternative to traditional search engines.
As Artificial Intelligence advances, the potential uses of language models like ChatGPT are increasingly being recognised.
These advanced language models have several applications that can enhance our interaction with technology and access to information, including personalised recommendation systems and tracking engines.
However, it's worth noting that ChatGPT's dataset only goes up to 2021, so it may miss out on time-sensitive questions. Despite this, it has outperformed Google search, as previously mentioned.
Alphabet is facing significant competition from Bard, and Microsoft has invested in Open AI to explore its capabilities in Bing search engine previews.
Open AI-assisted Bing uses data up to 2022, making it fully current, something ChatGPT currently lacks.
Despite this, Open AI's slow servers won't hinder it, and all sources will be cited. These factors have caused concern for Alphabet.
Although the debate about which search engine is superior may never be resolved, ChatGPT is a powerful tool that can revolutionise how we search for and access information in the coming years.
However, it's important to remember that ChatGPT and its search engine can still produce inaccurate and misinformed data points for some users.
What are your thoughts on these technologies?
The new Google technology, Bard, is a powerful tool that has the potential to revolutionise how people interact with their digital companions.
With its natural language processing capabilities, it can comprehend and respond to user inquiries in a way that mimics human conversation. It's an exciting development that will likely shape how digital communications continue to evolve.
As more companies look to integrate GPT into their existing chat systems, users should be prepared for an even more accurate and responsive digital experience.
