The war on artificial intelligence chatbots has taken a new turn with the introduction of Google’s Bard AI. Google CEO, Sundar Pichai, announced the introduction of Bard AI on February 6, 2023. Since launching Bard AI is Google’s response to OpenAI’s ChatGPT, we can expect some new features on it.
At present, Google Bard AI is available in around 180 countries, and Google is committed to making this AI chatbot more feature-rich and user-friendly. The chatbot is powered by Google’s Language Model for Dialogue Applications (LaMDA). The following section of this article will discuss a comparison between ChatGPT and Bard AI.
1. A Real-Time Internet Search
ChatGPT has a database that keeps updated with time. If you enter a query, the tool will give you results according to its updated database. In other words, you will not have up-to-date information from the ChatGPT. As a result, you cannot rely on the ChatGPT for updated information.
But, Google’s Bard AI is different from ChatGPT, as Bard AI can provide real-time internet search results. You will get updated information, which will be more helpful for the users. The real-time internet search also provides users with more accurate and reliable results. Digital marketers using ChatGPT will find more convenience
2. Voice Input Acceptance
So far, ChatGPT does not offer any voice input service to the users. You need to place the queries in text format. The tool also provides its result in text format. There is no exchange of voice messages between users and ChatGPT.
Typing texts can be time-consuming at times for the users. Moreover, handheld device users are now always comfortable typing texts. In such cases, the voice input becomes a game-changer. The Google Bard AI comes with the voice input feature, which helps you to enter inputs through voice messages instead of typing texts.
3. Exporting Text in Different Formats
Users cannot export the text generated by ChatGPT. The only option to get the text is copying from the ChatGPT interface and pasting it into the document editor tool. However, Google Bard comes with multiple options to export text in different formats. You can download the AI-generated text in Word, Excel, PDF, Notepad, and other formats.
4. Multiple Drafts of the Responses
ChatGPT does not provide multiple drafts of its responses. Therefore, you will not obtain multiple results for your queries. Having multiple options helps you choose the best response according to your convenience. On the other hand, Bard AI offers multiple drafts for its responses. The users can edit the drafts to refine them as per the requirements.
5. More Power to the Programmers
ChatGPT can perform coding if users provide guidelines perfectly. Google Bard AI is one step ahead in this regard, as it can explain coding to programmers. Therefore, a person interested in learning coding or programming will find amazing convenience in using the tool. Budding programmers can also correct their mistakes quickly using this tool.
You will get a clear and detailed explanation from Google Bard AI. Users can ask specific questions to this chatbot about coding to learn coding faster. Overall, Google’s AI tool will empower beginners in coding or programming.
6. Google Search Suggests
ChatGPT renders information to the users as per the queries. The tool does not suggest any further references to the users. Bard AI, introduced by Google, will further recommend Google search results in addition to answering the queries. Users have to type “suggest” after submitting a query or receiving a prompt. The tool will suggest the top-ranked Google search results to the users.
7. Planning Trips
Do you know that Google’s AI chatbot can plan your trip? The tool can find flights, alternative routes, hotels, etc. Your research before travelling will be easier with this feature from the tool. ChatGTP, on the other hand, can also provide travel-related information. However, you need to place queries separately for the information you need. ChatGTP is also unreliable if you are looking for up-to-date information.
So, these are the new features that Google Bard AI has brought in response to Microsoft’s AI tool ChatGPT. Observing how Microsoft will respond to Google’s AI tool in the future will be interesting. The war on AI chatbots between these two global tech giants is getting more interesting.
