ChatGPT vs Google Bard
ChatGPT has got everybody talking. It was many people’s first experience with generative artificial intelligence (AI), shedding light on the possibilities of fully leveraging this technology at a wide scale. Generative AI is “a type of artificial intelligence that can create new content, such as text, images, and music. It does this by learning from a large dataset of existing content and then using that knowledge to create new content that is similar to the content it has learned from.”
Created by OpenAI, ChatGPT has sparked many discussions about its impact on how the industry will evolve. However, it is not the only form of generative AI out there. Google Bard was announced in February this year and was released to the public on 21 March 2023. I asked Google Bard the same questions I asked ChatGPT back in January and noticed many similarities in their answers. Despite this, one particularly interesting point of differentiation emerged between the two towards the end.
This article introduces only one of the key differences between the two iterations of generative AI.
Here is where the difference really started to show.
Google Bard is trained on a larger dataset of text and code than OpenAI’s ChatGPT, and it can also process information from the real world through Google Search. Since a plugin ecosystem released in March 2023, ChatGPT can search for information on the web, however its knowledge beyond 2021 is somewhat limited.
Undoubtedly, generative AI can be used as a powerful tool across the vast majority of industries, including aviation. But, when it comes down to comparing iterations of this technology, do you think Google Bard’s superior access to real time news and information through Google Search will make it more popular that ChatGPT?
