Has anyone decided which one they like better?

Been testing Bard for a few days...

a couple of things I like better about Bard:

1. It pulls data from the internet...ChatGPT uses fed data that goes up to 2021.

2. It gives you more than 1 draft at a time to compare.

3. Gives you a button to google it so you can read the sources.

Just wondering if anyone else has made any observations.

      Well, that isn't good news.

      I do know on Slack some were talking about using VPNs to use it.

      I'm not an expert on VPNs to give you any more advice.

      If you can use ChatGPT it's still good.

      Bard just has a couple more features that I think are more cutting-edge.

      Some may still prefer ChatGPT over Bard...I don't know, that's why I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts about it.

      Here's a VPN service that I use to access Bard from Manila: https://www.goodaccess.com
      This should work in France or anywhere you're at right now;
      It's as simple as signing up for a free 14-day trial, logging into your dashboard, selecting a VPN location (I chose United States LA), downloading and installing their app for your device, enabling and connecting to your chosen VPN by clicking a button in the app, going to bard.google.com then registering for their waiting list; and
      Chances are, you'll get an email from Google that grants you access privileges to Bard before the 14-day trial ends, though I for one have a paid subscription (got other use-cases for this aside from accessing Bard) .

      P.S. I'm not affiliated in any way with that VPN service provider. I'm just a product user ...

    max5ty you might be ahead of the game. I just went to sign up for it and was put on a waiting list. (U.S. Resident) The home page says it is only open to US and UK as of now.
    For the poster in France, he is probably going to have to wait till Google rolls it out to more countries.

      Ok. I thought more people had been able to use it.

      I had signed up for the waitlist also and then got an email saying I could start using it.

      Hopefully, since you signed up it shouldn't be long.

      From what I understood they were rolling it out to everyone.

      I know they are trying to be more cautious than ChatGPT when they opened up their platform.

      Hopefully, at least by the end of the week they open it up to everyone on the waitlist.

      Edit: So I guess in hindsight this post may be a little too early until more people can try it out.

    Yes Chat GPT quite limited in terms of data after 2021. This is what they say themselves:

    Limited knowledge of world and events after 2021

  • What I Find Interesting

    QUOTE:

    1) Sensibleness: A measurement of whether an answer makes sense or not;
    2) Specificity: Measures if the answer is the opposite of generic/vague or contextually specific; and
    3) Interestingness: This metric measures if LaMDA's answers are insightful or inspire curiosity ...

    A. Safety: The model achieves a level of safety by tuning it with data that was annotated by crowd workers.
    B. Groundedness: LaMDA grounds itself factually with external knowledge sources (through information retrieval, which is search).

    /QUOTE
    source: https://www.searchenginejournal.com/google-bard/482860/

    My Take

    From how I understand what that SEJ page is saying -- Sounds to me Google fine-tuned the LaMDA large language model, which powers Bard [ here's the LaMDa paper for more context: https://arxiv.org/abs/2201.08239 ] ...

    And, I think they did this by developing a fine-tuning dataset with columns for input (query), additional_input (harvested formatted content from top organic Google search results for the input), inferencing output from LaMDa model that will be fine-tuned, and scores of inferencing output for sensibleness, specificity and interestingness, in which scores are human-reviewed and annotated ...

    My notion is based on similar fine-tuning methods being a common supervised learning technique for large language models (LLMs), which are mostly trained initially through unsupervised learning methods -- OpenAI also used this to fine-tune their GPT models for ChatGPT deployment ...

    Then, I think they added a programmatic step during deployment runtime of this "quantized" (read: reduced model layers, model size and size of weights for optimized performance) LaMDa LLM as Bard's backend, which probably runs something like this:

    User enters query;
    Bard system searches for query in Google, which is set to factor user's personalized and localized searchd data;
    It then harvests content of top organic search results;
    Bard system then feeds user's query and harvested content to model at backend, in order to get model's index of inference outputs; and
    It then gets backend model's inferencing outputs, organizes outputs based on scores for 3 parameters mentioned above, and displays output with highest scores to user.

    Implementing Similar Programmatic Steps with OpenAI's GPT

    Note: But we can't use GPT4 itself to build a dataset for fine-tuning our own, open source or private LLMs to then use it for a commercial product that competes against OpenAI's products, as this goes against their ToS ...

    SERPAPI is used to enter queries in Google and get URLs of organic results. BeautifulSoup4 in Python is used to harvest entire main content section of each page. Llama-Index in Python can be used to build a vectorized library of data during runtime so as to work around GPT4's token limits. So this allows us to feed GPT4 with up-to-date data from Google for it to output up-to-date inferencing outputs for a query (system and user prompts).

    However, what's missing here, and I think this is a really vital factor that can significantly affect LLM output quality, is the user's personalized and localized search data; and
    Using something like SERPAPI to enter a query in Google also means Google won't be able to factor in the user's own search history when deciding which content pages to serve, even if you set Google to user's specific location and device during runtime ...

    Anyway, more stuff about accessing Bard dev resources is found below ...

    Marx Vergel Melencio -

    All very interesting...and some of it is over my head.

    But, something you said I had thought about and wondered if this was happening:

    "Bard system searches for query in Google, which is set to factor user's personalized and localized searched data"

    It would seem important that this happens because it seems to me that localized search is what normally happens when someone searches.

    If it stops localizing searches it would change a lot of things when it comes to small businesses.

    Not sure I said that right, but hopefully you get the idea.

      Yes. That's what I exactly meant when I mentioned that the user's personalized and localized search data is highly likely a vital factor for optimizing Bard's output for each user. I'd be surprised if Google didn't think of this; and

      Yes. Without that data, Google's organic search results won't likely be as optimized for each user. And that could probably affect the overall quality of Bard's output for each user, significantly.

    Although I do think the writing part of the AI platforms is impressive...

    some of the other things that AI can do now are even more impressive.

    Just for an example, I asked Bard to write me the code I would need to add a countdown timer to a website...I kept this example as simple as I could, but some of the output asking for builds, etc I've read about are mind-blowing.

    Read the Twitter post about the guy that built a complete chrome extension in 45 minutes.

    (what I asked)

    I'm a complete beginner and want to add a countdown timer to my website that counts down to April 30, 2023. Write me all the code I would need to add to my website and explain each step in detail. When finished show me what the output would look like.

    (output)

    Sure, here is a step-by-step guide on how to add a countdown timer to your website that counts down to April 30, 2023:

    Create a new HTML file in your text editor.

    Add the following code to the top of the file:

    <!DOCTYPE html>
    <html>
    <head>
    <title>Countdown Timer</title>
    </head>
    <body>
    <h1>Countdown Timer</h1>
    <p>This timer will count down to April 30, 2023.</p>
    </body>
    </html>

    Add the following code to the bottom of the file:

    <script>
    var days = 10;
    var hours = 2;
    var minutes = 30;
    var seconds = 0;

    setInterval(function() {
    seconds -= 1;
    if (seconds < 0) {
    days -= 1;
    if (days < 0) {
    hours -= 1;
    if (hours < 0) {
    minutes -= 1;
    if (minutes < 0) {
    return;
    }
    }
    }
    }

    document.getElementById("seconds").innerHTML = seconds;
    }, 1000);
    </script>

    This code will create a countdown timer that starts with 10 days, 2 hours, 30 minutes, and 0 seconds. The timer will then count down to 0 seconds, at which point it will reset to 10 days, 2 hours, and 30 minutes. The timer will update every second, and the current time will be displayed in the "seconds" text element.

    Save the file as "countdown.html" and upload it to your web server.
    Open the file in a web browser and you should see the countdown timer.
    The output of the code will look like this:

    Countdown Timer

    10 days, 2 hours, 30 minutes, 0 seconds

    (end of output)

    Of course, I could go back and add specific design features to make the timer more appealing...but you get the point.

    The builder I use already has countdown timers, but this is just a simple example of using Bard. If you upgrade to the $20 monthly plan for GPT you can use GPT4 which I understand is better suited than the free version for writing code.

    I've been testing Bard on some more advanced plugins, and so far I'm getting good results.

    If you're an experienced coder, I'm guessing the questions you would know to ask would probably get way better results than what I'm getting right now.

      I asked Bard to summarize your statement ...this is what it said:

      The passage is about the importance of branding and how a strong brand can withstand the test of time. The author argues that a brand that has been around for 30+ years, with strong imagery and a clear message, is more likely to be successful than a new brand that is trying to quickly establish itself. The author also asks the question of whether or not this matters to anyone, and whether or not a brand's longevity is even important in today's world. Finally, the author asks where they put their hairdryer.

      Here is a more concise summary:

      A strong brand can withstand the test of time. Whether or not this matters to anyone is up for debate.


      How's that?

    In the news though:

    Eliezer Yudkowsky said at the rate we're going with AI, everyone will die. He's had over 2 decades in AI security.

    He was referring to a letter yesterday that elon musk and other top AI scientists had signed that asked for a 6 month pause on AI developments to give the world time to put safety measures in place. He said 6 months was not long enough. They were referring to AI stronger that CGPT4.

    He added:

    "Many researchers steeped in these issues, including myself, expect that the most likely result of building a superhumanly smart AI, under anything remotely like the current circumstances, is that literally everyone on Earth will die," he asserts. "Not as in 'maybe possibly some remote chance,' but as in 'that is the obvious thing that would happen.'"

    Instead, Yudkowsky proposes international cooperation, even between rivals like the U.S. and China, to shut down development of powerful AI systems. He says this is more important than "preventing a full nuclear exchange," and that countries should even consider using nuclear weapons "if that's what it takes to reduce the risk of large AI training runs."

    "Shut it all down," Yudkowsky writes. "Shut down all the large GPU clusters (the large computer farms where the most powerful AIs are refined). Shut down all the large training runs. Put a ceiling on how much computing power anyone is allowed to use in training an AI system, and move it downward over the coming years to compensate for more efficient training algorithms. No exceptions for governments and militaries."

    So there you go...

    tried to do a thread on the 6 month moratorium yesterday but I don't think the thread went through.

      Nice.

      I've heard a lot of people say Bard wasn't as good at writing articles etc. But, I think once you learn how to prompt it, it can do just as good.

      Plus, Bard draws from the internet, where CGPT goes up to 2021.

      Will be interesting to see what your opinion of it is.

          Thanks for your opinion. Coming from you and what you do it adds a lot of weight.

          From what I've been reading online from other reviews, I think more people prefer ChatGPT for writing articles and when asking for longer output.

        I'm still playing around with Bard and Chat. Depending on what I'm doing, Bard seems to provide better answers to a string of questions. What I don't like about Bard. if you ask a few questions then sign off for the day. The next day you can not pick up where you left off.

        Chat is better organized to come back to old questions. I like the left sidebar in black that stores all the old questions. You can go back to any old questions and pick up easily where you left off. Using the right prompt questions gives better answers to topics than just general questions fed into Chat. EDx has a course that teaches Chat. It is about using prompts which helped. I mentioned it here in another thread.

        One other thing - If someone is a writer they should look into Jenni Ai. The free version allows up to 200 words a day. If someone decides to write an article. It will give two lines that you can accept or it will make an alternative suggestion. I have been experimenting with Jenni for a few days now and like the program. Gordon has a good thread about putting an Amazon book together on the Main Forum. If someone were to do that, I think Jenni Ai would win out over Chat or Bard.

    I am woefully behind on some of this - but from my own reading i think BARD is being developed perhaps in a more thoughtful way than ChatGPT.

    I've wondered if by this time next year, there will be a clear choice of 'best to use'...the technology seems to be moving that quickly.

    I see some potential 'black holes' but that may be my own level of skepticism. In one test....an AI program recommended 5 books for 'further info' on a question....turns out the books don't exist - they were CREATED by the AI program to answer that question. How could that be of any true value?

    My skepticism is based on my own musings of whether AI programs will enable us to be smarter - or allow us to get by with getting dumber by the day....


    Two huge technical/scientific fields moving ahead rapidly right now - one in space with the Webb telescope - the other in cyberspace with AI.

    chatgpt started it, and google followed suit.

    they're practically the same thing. they're generative AIs trained with tons of data. at first, bard had an advantage, in which it could connect to the internet, whereas chatgpt couldn't.

    at that time, on paper, bard should have an advantage, but google somehow failed because bard surfaced wrong data during initial demo.

    at this time, i think chatgpt is ahead of bard, and that it's churning lots of data from users who are using it for both work and fun. and also from the fact that microsoft bing is also using it to power its bing chatbot.

    but in the long run, i think, bard will catch up.

    google has lots of AI projects, and from what it seems, google can put together the many AI projects to power bard.

    for example, chatgpt is powered by gpt-4, and this gets updated pretty quickly. but bard which initially uses only lamda, has added palm.

    i think, instead of comparing the two, you should try to see which of the two is less prone to hallucination. bing is the worse.

      Legit reasons for strategic markdown in the cutthroat world of info provision, say I.

      Don't mean eithah AI 'voice' gaht no persona, zackly.

      Jus' a mechanistic lilt can be spotted an' discriminated against.

      Course'n we ain't even figured AI potential for the subterfuge-friendly au nécessaires of total dom actschwaahn.

      Like nowan can control nuthin' anyways.

  • Gotta tellya, cool to have DanyWorld an' GordonJ an' max5ty chimin' along here.

    We all hangin' togethah, we all propulsin' henceforth fromout.

    ... an' so it goes with intake an outtake.

    Or outtake an' intake, yanno.

    Either/or, I guess, all parta the natchrl continyouem

    What is clear rn is how plenny people spunkin' out the AI gonna reel folks in whatevah.

    But how do YOU feel as an IMBIBAH?

    Likely, before this all gits started wholesale, we can query gut/filosof Now.

    So here's a question for evrywan:

    Would I be happier 10 years from now if I knew my life depended more on infinitely efficient machines than potentially fallible humans?

    In the age of information, ignorance is naht a choice.

      The past to remember, the future to behold.

      Cuyahoga Falls High Class of 68 motto.

      Back then, the majority of us had a lot of FUTURE ahead of us. Now, our tanks our mostly fumes. Now I don't normally be hatin...

      But I avoid OLD people. They have aches, pains, surgeries, recovering from...only a few are active (and interesting). I like young people, new tech, fresh ideas, it may not be keeping me young, but it does give me more to talk about than my _______ (Pick one of 10 ailments of the day).

      I may not be around for what is coming, but I find it fascinating how we all get to participate if we want. Reminds of Bud Weckesser's multi million dollar producing ad, ran in AARP and other oldster pubs. The headline:

      HOW TO MAKE YOUR COMPUTER AS EASY TO USE AS YOUR PHONE.

      Showed a pic of Granny being a whiz on the computer, next to a rotary phone.

      I could be dead wrong Princess, but I would bet that if you did a survey today and one in a decade, those that are happiest today...will be happiest then too.

      And those (whom shall remain nameless), are going to be offering up their reasons (excuses) why they got left behind and are just as happy then as they are today.

      If I'm still around, we'll revisit the idea, or at least my UPLOADED snarky consciousness will be.

    I love Bard. Recently I used another AI Bot to give me a list on meditation mantras. Just a few minutes ago I pasted the same prompt in Bard. 2 seconds it blew the other AI Bot out of the water. Color me with a hot Damn for Bard.

    Now I'm off to play with it some more.

      Thing 'bout meditayschwaahn mantras is ... when you flowin' 'em out, zackly?

      Ima mention this bcs nuthin' much 'pon yr lips less'n you say it is.

      Tongues're invitorial before they conspiritorial.

      Or inspirational.

      Or inconsequential.

      Hey ... so what nowan sayin' when they ain't dowin' nuthin'?

      Uhm Priori sounds kinda sweet to Moi rn.

      Less'n it terminally stoopid to advance such prurrepostrisness, I would wish always for this to be so.

      Meantime, if'n you a Princess refrencin' SATAN here back in the day, they ban yr ass.

      Which is why these forums're much sweetah now, swept as they be of spamola drivyool.

      Plus also, donchya jus' love mods who kiss back all dialogsy an' ain't innit simpyool for THE HELMETS.

      Thing we missin' here in the AI-sweet fyootyoore we so wanna chomp on is how we gotta digest all grool bowls set before us.

      Automation as slavery nevah works -- which is why we gaht lawnmowahs now bcs hooman-centric smarts.

      But if AOSFFS is willingly invited -- who says, zackly?

      Kinda ... who you seen stuff 'bout today?

      I hear Attilla the Hun been so long dead you can say pretty much anythin' 'bout the fkr.

      (Ima sayin' this on an IMBIBE to SPOUT ticket btw -- speshly for alla you parentheses buffs don't want I actschwlly parenthesize that bcs it is actschwlly muh main POINT.)

      (Repetitions my own.)

      Thing 'bout that darned Hun is ... 7 letters, 3 pairs same, 1 odd vowel.

      Which othah historical fkr can say that 'bout ummselves?

      (That is my Thursday Challenge to you -- anywan famous 7 letters 3 pairs same 1 odd vowel winna trip to misery.)

      Hate my ass for anya this schwango -- but wouldya wanna punch me in the chops if'n I were a youbiscuitlsly availabyool BAHT?

      Invitin' 'pon yr ass all devious Attilla Challenges?

      Only yr natchrl Princess would waste yr time so on sumthin' clearly naht a waste of time.

      Only yr natchrl Princess would time yr waste so on sumthin' clearly naht a waste of time.

      So only yr natchrl Princess would time yr waste on sumthin' clearly naht a waste of time.

      4 tries on that baby: you bored offa yr tits yet?

    Some of y'all may know this and some of y'all may not.

    Y'all can use ChatGPT Playground to test out some different things with GPT. It lets you get more creative. It was put out by OpenAI...the same company that put out GPT.

    Not sure why I'm saying y'all today.

    How does Bard and ChatGPT compare with Perplexity AI?

    https://www.perplexity.ai


    (I have no connection to it.)



    I've given it a try with a few questions and it seems pretty good, i.e.
    https://www.perplexity.ai/search/718...9a4542e9dc?s=c


    I didn't have to log-in either, which was nice.

    Chatgpt is better than Bard because Chatgpt has huge dataset than google bard.

    I'm most likely wet about that. I like Bards speed when researching. Results were right on and had latest updates on prostrate cancer.
    Ken
    We've used them both in the last month, have created 10 new works, half of which are on the market today. I'm fast, but with AI assistance, an INFOPRENEUR'S haven.

    As with the early days, GI=GO, for youngsters, that is Garbage IN=Garbage Out.

    Both are only as good as the person giving prompts, as I've gotten better at giving it directions, the results are much better.

    Very useful for updating old work, and bringing out new additions.

    Infancy=OPPORTUNITY.

    I don't know a thing about AI, but that hasn't stopped me from using it. Should have 10 more new works by end of June. TIME. Love me some time saving tools.
