ChatGPT (opens in new tab) is the big thing in AI development these days, but it soon won’t be the only game in town. Google announced today that it’s launching an AI chatbot of its own very soon, an “experimental conversational AI service” called Bard.

“Bard seeks to combine the breadth of the world’s knowledge with the power, intelligence and creativity of our large language models,” Google CEO Sundar Pichai said in the announcement (opens in new tab). “It draws on information from the web to provide fresh, high-quality responses. Bard can be an outlet for creativity, and a launchpad for curiosity, helping you to explain new discoveries from NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope to a 9-year-old, or learn more about the best strikers in football right now, and then get drills to build your skills.”
