Technology News Desk!! Alphabet named Bard after facing criticism about its ChatGPT rival and Google CEO Sundar Pichai has said the company will soon release a more capable AI model. Bard was released to the public on March 21, but OpenAI failed to catch the attention won by K’s ChatGPT and Microsoft’s Bing chatbot. We clearly have more capable models,” Pichai said during The New York Times Hard Fork podcast. Very soon, we will upgrade Bard to our somewhat more capable Pathways Language Model (PLM) model, which will bring more capabilities, be it in reasoning, coding, it can better answer math questions. So you’ll see progress over the course of the next week, Pichai said. Pichai said that the reason for Bard’s limited capabilities was a sense of caution within Google.
For me, it was important not to have a more capable model before we were absolutely sure that we could handle it well, he was quoted as saying in the report. Pichai confirmed that he is in talks with Google co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin about the job. He also expressed concern that the development of AI is currently moving too fast and may have become a threat to society. This needs a lot of debate, Pichai said, adding that no one knows all the answers. Google has denied reports that it is copying Microsoft-owned OpenAI’s ChatGPT to train its AI chatbot called Bard.
A report in The Information claims that the success of OpenAI has forced two AI research teams within Google’s parent, Alphabet, to set aside years of intense rivalry to work together. According to the report, citing sources, software engineers from Google’s Brain AI group are working with employees of DeepMind, a sibling company within Alphabet, to develop software to compete with OpenAI. However, a Google spokesperson told The Verge that Bard has not been trained on any data from ShareGPT or ChatGPT.
