We are 15 minutes away from the start of the big event. To pass the time, I wanted you to check out this excellent article titled “ChatGPT is an existential crisis for Microsoft and Google, but not in the way they think (Opens in a new tab)From John Loeffler, Computing Editor for sister site, TechRadar, with a headline.
While AI-generated searches seem to be exciting now, many potential risks are associated with them. We’ve already seen ChatGPT steal others’ work with regards to AI-generated images. There are a range of legal problems that the two companies may face. The future of software like ChatGPT may not be as rosy as some might think.
Welcome! Computing writer Tony Polanco here. I’ll be directing this live blog going forward and updating it on Google Bard.
As mentioned before, Bard is Google’s answer to ChatGPT. This AI-driven software aims to make your searches easier and more accurate. Today’s event should also detail how Bard will be integrated into other Google services like Maps.
This is sure to be an interesting event, not least because it comes right on the heels of Microsoft’s planned integration of ChatGPT into the Bing search engine and Edge browser.
If you get stuck doing something before starting a Google event, why not see our guide on how to use ChatGPT?
If you haven’t already used it, it’s simply a matter of signing up for the service and then writing your questions and prompts. It’s very easy to use, which makes us wonder how Google will aim to improve the user experience when it comes to Bard.
Less than an hour left until an appointment Direct from Paris The event begins!
If you want to set yourself up, you can watch via the YouTube embed above, or follow the link.
Besides Bard, Google might be talking a little bit today about MusicLM, the recently announced music generator.
It sure looks smart, being able to produce beat minutes based on text inputs indicating style, tempo, etc. However, since it was trained on copyrighted music, it would be difficult for Google to release it without causing significant inconvenience to artists and record labels.
Another interesting bit of recent Google AI news is that it has invested $400 million in Anthropic, an artificial intelligence startup.
Anthropic hasn’t yet released any generally usable AI tools, but it’s apparently working on its competitor ChatGPT. It is not known if this will have any effect on Google’s Bard AI.
Good morning! It’s Google Live event day out of Paris, and we’re all looking forward to seeing what the company has to show off, particularly in terms of Bard AI.
A lot of comparisons are being made between it and ChatGPT – the most popular AI-powered application. If you’re not already familiar, take a look at our What is ChatGPT guide to find out what makes OpenAI chat software so special – and what Google will have to contend with or overcome with its own efforts.
Whatever Google announces today, it will draw comparisons to it Microsoft planned integration for ChatGPT in Bing search engine and Edge browser. The AI will help with some search queries — the example Microsoft showed was a search asking if a certain type of Ikea furniture could fit in the back of a 2019 Honda Odyssey — and there will be a chat component as well that aims to give you deeper insight into the search results. Along with using these ChatGPT features in Bing, the new Bing search technology will be integrated into the Edge browser.
Computing Editor Alex Wauro was in Redmond for a Microsoft announcement yesterday and got some… Hands-on with the ChatGPT-flavored version of Bing.
You can read files cool google guide Learn more about what it is and how it works. But in short, Google built Bard to talk to users, using Google’s Language Model for Dialogue Application, or LaMDA model. You’ll use Bard by typing a query or request into a text box, and the answer will return in a conversational tone.
The most obvious use case for Bard would be searching for information, but Google has brought up a few other use cases like planning events, getting lunch ideas, and comparing Oscar-nominated movies. In any case, you can certainly think of Bard as a way to augment and expand Google’s existing search tools.
While search is important to Google, it won’t be the only thing on the agenda for today’s event. According to the text accompanying the YouTube placeholder video, Google plans a much broader focus:
“We’re reimagining how people search, explore, and interact with information, making it more natural and intuitive than ever to find what you need. Join us to learn how we’re opening up greater access to information for people everywhere, through search, maps, and more.“
So yeah, we’ll likely hear about how Google’s flagship search engine will integrate Bard, but it looks like Google Maps will likely get some AI integration, too. And judging by the images in Google’s placeholder art, shopping and mobile will be part of the mix today, too.
