Alphabet Inc.'s Google is granting the public access to its ChatGPT competitor, the conversational AI service it calls Bard. Google says it has made Bard available to a small number of testers. From today anyone in the US and the UK will be able to apply for access. Until now, Bard had only been available to a small group of "trusted testers" hand-picked by Google.

Bard, like ChatGPT, will respond to questions about and discuss an almost inexhaustible range of subjects with what sometimes seems like humanlike understanding. Google showed WIRED several examples, including asking for activities for a child who is interested in bowling and requesting 20 books to read this year.

While both ChatGPT and Google Bard use a large language model (LLM) to power their chatbot AIs, they don't use the same model. ChatGPT uses GPT-3 for its free research preview and GPT-4 for ChatGPT Plus and the ChatGPT API. Bard instead uses Google's Language Model for Dialogue Applications (LaMDA).

Unlike its rival ChatGPT, Bard is able to access up-to-date information from the internet and has a "Google it" button which accesses search. It also namechecks its sources for facts, such as Wikipedia. But Google warned Bard would have "limitations" and said it might share misinformation and display bias.
