ChatGPT Vs Google BARD: An In-Depth Analysis of the Natural Language Processing Capabilities of Both
February 20, 2023
Natural Language Processing (NLP) is a branch of artificial intelligence that focuses on the interactions between computers and humans using natural language. It involves the ability of computers to understand, interpret, and generate human language. ChatGPT and Google BARD are two of the most potent NLP models that have been developed to date. In this blog, we will provide an in-depth analysis of the natural language processing capabilities of ChatGPT and Google BARD and compare their features, benefits, and use cases.
Importance of NLP in the IT industry
NLP has gained significant importance in the IT industry in recent years, as it has numerous applications in areas such as chatbots, sentiment analysis, language translation, voice recognition, and many more. NLP is the backbone of many intelligent systems that we use in our daily lives, and its advancements are helping to create a more intuitive and human-like experience for users.
What is ChatGPT?
ChatGPT is a developed chatbot with artificial intelligence, that specialized in having conversations with the user. The abbreviation of ChatGPT stands for Generative Pre-trained Transformer. You can use the chatbot in different ways. You can ask the chatbot questions and the chatbot will provide an answer based on artificial intelligence. For example: What are the main pillars of SEO? Due to the detailed and outspoken answers, the answers are sometimes hardly distinguishable from answers given by people. But ChatGPT is not perfect either. The tool is not yet up to date, so the chatbot cannot provide all the answers to questions about events that took place after 2021.
Where does ChatGPT come from?
In November 2022, ChatGPT was launched by OpenAI. OpenAI is an artificial intelligence (AI) research lab, with the mission to ensure that AI benefits all of humanity.
ChatGPT integration in Bing
OpenAI is the creator of the chatbot ChatGPT. Microsoft has decided to invest almost 10 billion euros in the company in the coming years. Microsoft wants to stay ahead of the competition in the field of AI. On February 7, Microsoft announced that they will build an extended version of ChatGPT into Microsoft’s search engine, Bing. For example, it is possible for users to use the chat function as a search query. The new feature is being rolled out step by step worldwide. Some users can actually test a limited version already.
But is OpenAI the only artificial intelligence chatbot? No definitely not. After the launch of ChatGPT, Google responded with the arrival of Google Bard. Google has been working with artificial intelligence for years and then suddenly ChatGPT came into play. What is the difference between the chatbots and what influence will this have?
Google Bard, the answer to ChatGPT
It was coming, Google had to come up with an answer to ChatGPT. And the answer has come in the form of Google Bard. Bard is a chatbot based on LaMDA. LaMDA stands for Language Model for Dialogue Applications and is the artificial intelligence system that Google has developed to conduct (human) conversations.
Google has been developing artificial intelligence for years. And many felt that Google was ahead of the competition here, until ChatGPT came along. The question now is to what extent Google Bard can compete with ChatGPT and when will it be available to the general public.
Integration into Google search results
Bard will be integrated into Google search results. This means that, in addition to the organic and paid search results, results are also displayed that come from the chatbot. Sundar Pichai, CEO of Google and Alphabet, has shown an example of this in a recently written blog about the rollout of Google Bard. Visitors are increasingly using Google for deeper insights and understanding. AI will collect the most important information, filter it, and summarize it into one clear and simple answer.
ChatGPT Vs Google BARD
Now that we’ve covered ChatGPT and Google Bard, the question is, what’s the difference? This question is difficult to answer because ChatGPT has already been rolled out and Google Bard has not yet. One of the functionalities where Google can make a difference is whether Google Bard actually understands the language, this is where ChatGPT sometimes goes wrong. The chatbot knows what answer to give, but does not understand why. As a result, you may encounter inaccuracies, prejudices, and discrimination in answers. Google is expected to understand this much better since Google has years of experience in this.
Like Google Bard, as mentioned earlier, Microsoft is also going to integrate ChatGPT into the search engine. That is currently still a difference, but both Google Bard and ChatGPT will be integrated into the search engines Google and Bing.
We already mentioned it at the beginning of the blog. ChatGPT is not up to date, so the chatbot cannot provide all answers to questions about events that took place after 2021. The expectation is that Google Bard will be able to do this or at least be more up-to-date. Also, because Google itself reports that consumers are looking for deeper insights, instead of quick and factual answers.
What does Artificial intelligence mean for the future?
We cannot predict the future, but it is clear that Artificial Intelligence has gained momentum in recent months. Chatbots make searching the internet easier and by using AI you save time. But there are also disadvantages, because of the enormous amount of data from the internet, there is a chance that the information is incorrect. Checking is also not possible, because the source of this information is not displayed. And to what extent does AI replace human work? Not yet, but who knows what will be possible in the future.
In a nutshell, both ChatGPT and Google BARD are highly accurate and versatile natural language processing models. ChatGPT and Google BARD are both powerful NLP models that have demonstrated exceptional performance in various NLP tasks. While ChatGPT is more focused on text generation, Google BARD is more focused on language understanding tasks. Both models have shown superior performance in various NLP benchmarks, and their use cases vary depending on the specific application.
The future of NLP technology is promising, and there is still a lot of room for development in this field. As technology advances, there is a need for more sophisticated NLP models that can understand the nuances of human language better.
One potential development is the integration of NLP technology with other AI technologies such as computer vision and speech recognition. This integration would enable machines to have a more human-like experience, including the ability to understand and interpret images and speech. Another potential development is the improvement of NLP models’ ability to understand human emotions and sentiments. This development would enable machines to better interact with humans, creating a more personalized and empathetic experience.
The relevance of NLP in the IT industry cannot be overstated. With the advancements in NLP technology, we are creating more intelligent and intuitive systems that can better understand and interact with humans. ChatGPT and Google BARD are just the beginning of what is possible in this field, and we can expect to see many more exciting developments in the future.
