ChatGPT VS Bard

As of March 22nd, 2023, we are in the midst of an AI revolution. The release of Alpaca AI and LLM by Stanford and Adobe respectively has been followed by the announcement of AI image generators by both Adobe and Microsoft. However, the biggest news is the public beta release of Bard by Google, which is being touted as the company’s answer to GPT4. According to the author, this has already had a significant impact on Google’s search usage, which has decreased by 63.9% since GPT4’s release the previous week.

The article then goes on to compare the capabilities of Bard and GPT4 in several different areas. The author prompts both models to write a basic to-do app with JavaScript. Bard completes the task in a few seconds, while GPT4 takes five times longer to complete the same problem. However, when the code is run in a browser, Bard’s code does not work, whereas GPT4’s code works perfectly.

Next, the author prompts both models to generate ideas for a romance novel. Bard’s response is simple and cliché, while GPT4’s response is much more creative and intricate, with a detailed plot and characters. When prompted to write a poem about programming in the style of Dr. Seuss, both models provide a response that sounds like the famous author’s work, but GPT4’s response is deemed superior by the author due to the way each stanza flows off the tongue.

Finally, the author prompts both models to explain how brain waves work. Bard is faster at outputting information, but the author gives the win to GPT4 as its response is slightly more accurate.

The article concludes by mentioning that Bard is already facing criticism on social media, with some people switching from Google to Bing. The author also notes that Bard itself is paranoid that Google will kill it. Despite this, the author has high expectations for Bard, given Google’s access to unlimited computing power and a team of experts working on top-secret projects like quantum computers. Overall, the article provides an interesting glimpse into the capabilities of AI models and their potential impact on the world.
