Is Google Bard AI the new OpenAI Chat?

The rise of a new conversational artificial intelligence


In an era where technology evolves at breakneck speed, it is crucial to stay abreast of the latest innovations. Today, we want to introduce you to a technological marvel that has been making waves and that we are currently putting to the test for you: Google Bard, or as many call it, Bard AI. We aim to provide you with a comprehensive understanding of what it is, how it works, and most importantly, how you can integrate it into your everyday life.

A New Contender in the AI Landscape

Google Bard isn't just another name on the list of artificial intelligences. This AI chatbot is developed by Google itself and promises to revolutionize the way we interact with computers – and it does so entirely for free.

Bard is a large-scale language model, meticulously trained to be informative and comprehensive. It has been fed an immense amount of text and code data, equipping it to generate text, translate languages, craft creative content, and respond to questions in a detailed and accurate manner.

Behind the Scenes of Google Bard

But how does Google Bard accomplish all this? The answer lies in its powerful language models: LaMDA and PaLM2. These models, trained on vast datasets, empower Bard to generate content based on the information it has absorbed during training. Thanks to the transformer model, Google Bard can convert input sequences into relevant and accurate responses, making each conversation with it a unique experience.

The Infinite Possibilities of Google Bard

Bard isn't just a chatbot. In addition to following instructions, answering challenging questions, and creating creative texts, Bard has the potential to revolutionize sectors such as customer service, education, and entertainment. Picture a 24/7 customer service assistant or a personalized tutor that adapts to each student's needs. And it doesn't stop there: Bard could also analyze vast amounts of data to identify trends and patterns, leading to new discoveries in fields like science and engineering.

Google Bard vs ChatGPT: A Friendly Rivalry?

The question on many minds is whether Google Bard can truly compete with ChatGPT. While both are powerful and versatile artificial intelligence chatbots, there are some key differences between them. For instance, while Chat Open AI has its training based on a different set of data and has information updated only up to September 2021 (at least in its free version, Chat GPT 3.5), Google Bard has access to more recent information thanks to real-time Google Search. To truly understand which might be more useful based on our needs, we at Acrimònia will soon conduct a test that we will publish on our Instagram channel... So follow us to stay tuned!

How to Use Google Bard AI

Let's allow Bard itself to explain how to use it! Here's what it said when I asked it to create a step-by-step guide for its usage. Italics have been added by us for clarity.

Here's the step-by-step guide on how to use Google Bard:

  1. Visit the Google Bard website:
  2. Click on the "Try Bard" button


  • Log in with your Google email (usually an address)
  1. Type your question or request into the text box
  2. Click the "Send" button
  3. Bard will generate a response to your question or request
  4. You can read the response and click on any links for further information
  5. You can also ask Bard to generate various creative text formats, such as poems, code, scripts, musical compositions, emails, letters, etc. Just click the "Generate" button and choose the text format you desire

Here are some tips for using Google Bard:

  • Be as specific as possible in your questions and requests. The more information you provide to Bard, the more accurate its response will be.
  • Use natural and conversational language. Bard can understand a wide range of linguistic expressions.
  • Don't hesitate to ask Bard for help with creative projects. Bard can generate various creative text formats, such as poems, code, scripts, musical compositions, emails, letters, etc.

The result is not yet perfect at 100%, but remember that this is the very first version open to the public in Italy, and it can only improve from here!

Furthermore, considering how much we already use Google daily, Bard AI could be a valuable addition to achieve more effective results if Google decides to integrate it into its famous search engine.

In Conclusion

The rise of Google Bard AI represents a pivotal moment in the evolution of conversational artificial intelligences. With its advanced capabilities, speed, and, most importantly, free and immediate internet access, Bard promises to become an indispensable tool for many of us. While the 'battle' between Google Bard and ChatOpenAI may continue for a while, we, the users, can only expect great things from both.
