Google Bard was released for public testing in early March, but it’s not nearly as impressive as rivals Bing Chat and ChatGPT (which were already far from perfect). Google promises that updates are on the way.
The last episode of The New York Timespodcast hard forks He had as a guest Google CEO Sundar Pichai, who said that updates for Bard are in development. He said: “We will be upgrading the Bard to some of our more capable PaLM models, which will bring more capabilities; Whether in reasoning, coding, you can better answer math questions. So you’ll see progress over the course of the next week.”
Google Bard was initially based on LaMDA, the AI language model that Google has been developing for several years. That sets it apart from most other chatbots: Bing Chat, ChatGPT, and others use technology derived from OpenAI’s GPT models. Google’s PaLM is a larger-scale model, which might make Bard a bit more useful. Sundar went on to say, “For me, it was important not to put [out] a more capable model before we can make sure we can handle it well.”
We’ll likely hear more about Bard updates in the coming weeks, as Google has been eager to share Bard’s progress as its competitors ramp up development.
