Google's potential ChatGPT rival
About Apprentice Bard
Google is developing its own version of ChatGPT. According to CNBC, Google is currently testing several iterations of ChatGPT competitors after company CEO Sundar Pitchai declared "code red" and decided to accelerate Google's AI efforts.
The company aims to unveil at least 20 AI products at Google I/O this year, and some of them will engage in the battle of the bots with the almighty ChatGPT. One potential candidate for this battle is the so-called Apprentice Bard, a chatbot that uses Google's LaMDA conversation technology. CNBC's sources say that the LaMDA team has been asked to work on creating competitors to ChatGPT.
CNBC says it saw samples proving the bot's answers include information from recent events — something ChatGPT isn't capable of, because it only has limited knowledge about anything that happened after 2021. In one example, Apprentice Bard was able to answer whether there will be another round of layoffs at Google. (Unlikely for this year, it said, seeing as the company is doing well financially.)
