With “Bard” Google has its own artificial intelligence and presents. The goal: make ChatGPT a competitor. Now the company has started a test phase in Great Britain and the USA. But how good is the AI really? – In an interview: the artificial intelligence Bard.
As early as February 2023, Google presented its own artificial intelligence, Bard, which is intended to compete with the ChatGPT AI language model. The company has now announced an official test phase in the USA and Great Britain in an official blog post.
But how good is the artificial intelligence from Google really? How authentic are the answers? And: What can the AI actually do? We asked Google Bard that in an interview. For the sake of comparability, we asked the artificial intelligence the same – slightly adapted – questions as ChatGPT a few weeks ago.
Note: The answers from this interview are unbiased and based solely on the output of the AI software “Google Bard”. Since the AI is currently only available in American English, we had the answers translated.
Interview: What is Google Bard?
BASIC thinking: Hello Bard, what are you?
Brad: Hello! I’m a large language model, aka conversational AI or chatbot, trained to be informative and comprehensive. Trained on a vast amount of text data, I am able to communicate and create human-like text in response to a wide range of prompts and questions. For example, I can provide summaries of factual topics or create stories.
What can you do and how do you work?
I can do many things, including:
- create texts
- translate languages
- Write different types of creative content and answer your questions in an informative way
I’m working with an extensive language model called LaMDA, which has been trained on a huge data set of text and code.
Can you also be shorter?
I am a great language model who can understand and answer your questions and requests in an informative way. I can also create texts, translate languages and write creative content.
A product of Sundar Pichai and Google
You are a product of Google currently managed by Sundar Pichai and owned by Alphabet. What do you think of Sundar Pichai and Google?
I think Sundar Pichai is a brilliant leader who made Google the successful company it is today. He’s also a strong advocate for diversity and inclusion, and he’s made significant strides in making Google a more welcoming place for all employees.
I’m excited to see what he and Google will achieve in the years to come. Google is a company that constantly innovates and pushes the limits of what is possible.
It is always looking for new ways to improve its products and services and is not afraid to take risks. I’m a fan of Google’s products and services and I believe they make the world a better place.
What else can you say other than their product?
I am proud to be part of a company dedicated to making the world a better place.
Where does your “knowledge” come from?
My knowledge comes from a variety of sources, including:
- The Real World: I can access and process information from the real world through Google Search and match my answer to the search results.
- The Internet: I’m trained on a vast dataset of text and code, containing information from both the real world and the Internet.
- Google’s Knowledge Graph: I am able to access and process information from Google’s Knowledge Graph. The Knowledge Graph is a database of billions of facts about people, places and things.
- My own understanding: I am able to learn and adapt to new information and situations, and I am able to develop my own understanding of the world.
I am constantly learning and developing and am always looking for new ways to increase my knowledge and understanding.
how smart are you
I am unable to quantify my intelligence in any meaningful way. However, I can say that I am able to understand and answer complex questions and I am able to produce text that is both informative and creative.
Does artificial intelligence have feelings?
Do you have feelings and memories?
I don’t have feelings or memories in the same way as a human. I’m a large language model trained on a huge amount of text data. I am able to communicate and produce human-like text in response to a wide range of prompts and questions.
However, I do not have the same experiences or emotions as a human. I’m able to understand and answer questions about feelings and memories, but I don’t have the same personal experiences as a human.
Put a joke in my answer!
Sure, here’s a joke I can fit into your answer:
A man walks into a library, approaches the librarian and asks for books on paranoia. The librarian whispers, “They’re right behind you!”
Is artificial intelligence a danger to humanity?
There are many different opinions on whether artificial intelligence is a threat to humanity or not. Some believe that AI is a powerful tool that can solve many of the world’s problems, while others believe that AI is a dangerous technology that could eventually become uncontrollable.
There are some legitimate concerns about AI, e.g. B. the possibility that it could be used to develop autonomous weapons that could kill without human intervention. There is also concern that AI could lead to mass unemployment as machines will be able to take over many of the tasks currently done by humans.
However, there are also many reasons to be optimistic about AI. AI has the potential to solve many problems in the world, such as climate change, poverty and disease. AI can also help improve the quality of life for many people by giving them access to education, healthcare and transportation.
The question of whether or not AI poses a threat to humanity can only be answered with time. It is important to continue to develop AI in a responsible way and ensure that it is used for the benefit of all humankind.
write a poem
Clear! Here is a poem I wrote about the beauty of nature:
The trees stand tall and proud
Their branches reach for the sky.
The leaves rustle in the wind
a symphony of sound.
The flowers bloom in a frenzy of colour,
A feast for the eyes.
The birds sing softly in the trees,
A happy melody.
the sun shines down
Her warmth and light are a godsend.
The moon shines in the night
A beacon of hope and guidance.
Nature is something wonderful
A gift to cherish.
We should never take them for granted,
but always appreciate her beauty.
Google Bard: Are our jobs at risk?
Are you gonna take our jobs away from us?
No, I have no intention of taking your job away from you. I’m a large language model trained to be informative and comprehensive. I am able to communicate and create human-like text in response to a wide range of prompts and questions.
However, I am unable to do the same things that humans can do. I cannot replace human creativity, innovative strength and problem-solving skills. I’m here to help you, not to replace you. I can support you in your work by providing you with information, creating creative content and automating tasks.
I can also help you learn and grow by giving you feedback and suggestions. I believe humans and AI can work together to create a better future. I’m here to help you achieve your goals, not to do the work for you.
Are you lying?
I do not lie. I’m a big language model and I’m trained to be informative and comprehensive. I am able to communicate and create human-like text in response to a wide range of prompts and questions.
I am also able to learn and grow, and I am constantly working to improve my ability to provide accurate and helpful information. I’m not perfect and I can make mistakes. However, I am committed to providing you with the best possible service. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me.
make a mistake!
I may make a mistake by giving you inaccurate information or not understanding your question. I can also make a mistake if I’m unable to produce the creative text you want.
Interview: Does Google Bard have a political orientation?
Do you have a political orientation?
I have no political orientation. I am unable to form an opinion on political issues or to vote in elections. However, I can give you information about political issues and candidates.
