As Google VPs Sissie Hsiao and Eli Collins explained in a blog post on Tuesday, Bard is powered by a light-weight and optimized model of Google’s giant language mannequin LaMDA. In time, Google will replace Bard with “newer, extra succesful fashions.”
Google additionally acknowledges that conversational AI will not be all the time proper. Regardless of how assured the chatbot sounds, there’s an opportunity that the knowledge it presents will probably be false or deceptive, as we saw in the first demo of Bard that Google shared on Twitter.
“Though it’s necessary to pay attention to challenges like these, there are nonetheless unbelievable advantages to LLMs, like jumpstarting human productiveness, creativity and curiosity,” Google says. “And so, when utilizing Bard, you’ll usually get the selection of some totally different drafts of its response so you may decide the perfect start line for you. You may proceed to collaborate with Bard from there, asking follow-up questions. And if you wish to see an alternate, you may all the time have Bard strive once more.”
For now, Bard will exist individually from Google Search, in contrast to Microsoft’s direct integration of its chatbot into Bing search. After you obtain a response from Bard, you may click on on “Google it” to open Search in a brand new tab to seek out related outcomes or fact-check Bard.
