The race to implement the most advanced AI technology is intensifying with each passing day. In what can be called its response to OpenAI’s sensational AI chatbot, ChatGPT, Google on February 6 unveiled its own chatbot Bard for search. The experimental conversational AI backed by Google’s LaMDA has been opened up to trusted testers. Reportedly the latest mail reviewed by the Insider indicates the sense of urgency seemingly visible at Google to lead in the realm of generative AI-backed search. The launch of ChatGPT in November last year came as a momentous push for AI technologies. After Bard was launched, Google suffered a major reputational disaster as the chatbot offered incorrect responses to a question on the James Webb Space Telescope. Google CEO Sundar Pichai has reportedly asked Google employees in a memo to spend two to four hours every day helping test the chatbot which the company aims to integrate into search. The chatbot reportedly has thousands of internal and external testers using it and submitting feedback on its safety, quality and groundedness.
