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 claimed that OpenAI’s success “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.
The report claimed, “Known internally as Gemini, the joint effort began in recent weeks after Google stumbled across Bard, its first attempt to compete with OpenAI’s chatbot. ”
However, a Google spokesperson told The Verge that “Bard has not been trained on any data from ShareGPT or ChatGPT”.
Meanwhile, Google has announced that it is opening up access to its ChatGPT competitor “Bard,” an early experiment for users to collaborate with generative AI.
Bard’s initial access has started in the US and UK, and the company said it will expand access to more countries and languages over time.
Bard, like OpenAI’s ChatGPT and Microsoft’s Bing chatbot, is based on a large language model (LLM), specifically a lightweight and optimized version of LaMDA, which the tech giant said will be added in the future with newer, more capable models. will be updated.
Users can interact with Bard by asking questions and refining their responses with follow-up questions.
