What is Google Bard, and How Does It Affect Online Marketing?

How does Google Bard affect Online Marketing?

Accompanying OpenAI, Google jumped on the bandwagon too!

It was not too long ago when the world was introduced to ChatGPT. There was a buzz that one-day ChatGPT would dethrone Google. We are still determining if that will happen. But Google didn't waste any time and rolled out their own AI tool, Bard.

Like other AI chatbots, Bard helps users write code, essays, and emails, solve math problems, translate languages, etc. Unfortunately, Google Bard had a rocky start. It has been caught up in all sorts of controversies and skepticism right from the start. After a promotional video surfaced where the chatbot unintentionally shared inaccurate information, Alphabet Inc. took a massive hit, losing a whopping $100 billion in market value.

Google, on various fronts, owned up to its flaws. They admit that Bard is still developing and may sometimes produce incorrect, speculative, or repetitive responses. But, they are working towards the goal of consistent delivery of accurate and helpful information.

What is Google Bard?

Bard is Google's experimental, conversational AI chatbot tool, trained on a massive dataset of text and code. By employing natural language processing and machine learning, it mimics human-like conversations using advanced techniques.

Google BARD uses a custom-made Language Model for Dialogue Applications (LaMDA).

It taps into the information available on the web to offer up-to-date, top-notch responses and simplify complex topics into easy-to-digest formats.

With a waitlist, Google launched Bard on March 21, 2023, and on May 10, 2023, Bard became available in over 180 countries. Bard is not available in Canada to date. The tool is promising but having a tough time making a name for itself. Constantly being compared to ChatGPT is only adding to its challenges.

Bard vs. ChatGPT

What Bard Offers, That ChatGPT Doesn't?

Although Bard offers similar functionalities to ChatGPT, there are features in Bard that are not available in ChatGPT, which gives the tool a competitive advantage.

  • ChatGPT does not currently have voice input functionality. But Bard allows users to make requests verbally through the microphone icon next to the text input bar.

  • Bard features integration with Gmail and Google Docs. Once you have received an email or message response in Google's Bard's output, it can easily be exported to Docs or saved as drafts in Gmail.

  • When you ask Bard to generate an email, you get different email draft options. In ChatGPT also, you can get various drafts, but only after you give a prompt for the same.

  • Google Bard can provide image-based responses, something that ChatGPT doesn't offer. However, there are limitations experienced as Bard's image responses are only sometimes spot-on, flawless, reliable, and safe to use.
