ChatGPT and Bard are both chatbots powered by artificial intelligence. On the surface, they are pretty similar and can perform many of the same tasks. But each have their strengths and weaknesses.
While ChatGPT is more geared toward productivity, you can think of Bard as a mix between a search engine and a virtual assistant. Bard is more helpful if you have a specific question, while ChatGPT is better equipped for generating ideas and content.
HOW IS BARD DIFFERENT TO CHATGPT ?
Well Bard has a "Google it" button which allows users to fact check and find out what sources have been used, such as Wikipedia.
Google senior product director Jack Krawczyk is quoted as saying he used Bard to help him plan his child's birthday party. The chatbot came up with a theme which included his child's love of rabbits and gymnastics and also suggested party games and food.
Krawczyk explained to the BBC that Bard is "an experiment" and he hopes people will use it as a
"launchpad for creativity".
Google say Bard is programmed not to respond to offensive questions and there are filters to stop it from sharing harmful, illegal or personal information - but vice president of Google Research, Zoubin Ghahramani said like any methods of protection these could sometimes not work.
Both chatbots are easy to access and use and are equally fast at responding to queries. You'll need to create a Google account to use Bard, but that only takes a few minutes if you don't already have one. With ChatGPT, you can use any email address (including your work email) to sign up and get started immediately.
The most significant benefit of Bard is that it draws real-time information from the internet for its responses. ChatGPT, on the other hand, is trained with a finite set of data that hasn't been updated since 2021. Therefore, Bard gives more up-to-date answers to topical questions.
Another advantage of Bard is that you can see different "drafts," or variations, of responses. ChatGPT gives a singular (and often shorter) response to queries. Both chatbots rely on the same sources, including Wikipedia, Common Crawl, and reputable articles from the web. Bard is likelier to cite sources in its answers, whereas ChatGPT typically states things as facts without providing a source.
If you want to know how to do something, Google Bard gives more precise instructions. Bard is also better at summarizing complex concepts, so if you have a question about something you don't understand, Bard will generally give you a more helpful answer.
Bard's responses seem more human, while ChatGPT is all business. When asked if it's sentient, ChatGPT gives a definitive "no," while Bard says it's unsure, citing the philosophical debates about the meaning of "sentience."
ChatGPT seems more thoughtful regarding complicated ethical questions, drawing upon philosophical concepts to reach its conclusions. Bard gives vague answers to subjective questions about ethics and morality.
ChatGPT tends to stick to the facts (pre-2021), yet Bard is more conversational and gives more in-depth answers. Bard's responses are typically better formatted and easier to read. ChatGPT sometimes writes long paragraphs and isn't as consistent in its formatting.
While Bard can learn new facts from the internet, ChatGPT learns from the conversations it has, so don't tell it anything you don't want the world to know!
And with that in mind, make sure that what you publish is accurate. If
anyone else publishes factual errors, we wonder how that misinformation may
affect people and corporations. Doubtless, the Chabots will have some kind
of rectification procedure built in.
ChatGPT and Bard can be most helpful in the workplace. AI chatbots can perform mundane tasks like drafting emails, blog posts, social media posts, product descriptions, and legal briefs. Both chatbots have coding capabilities, but ChatGPT is generally better at creative tasks. Bard is better at summarizing transcripts of meetings, lectures, and speeches.
Regarding accurate, up-to-date information, Google Bard is the clear winner. However, ChatGPT is better suited for productivity and creative tasks.
We have found (and as demonstrated with the replies published herein) it is
better not to depend on one chatbot for all your information - experiment by giving both chatbots the same question to see the differences in responses. There are plenty of other chatbots to try, like Bing AI and DuckAssist.
Microsoftís Bing AI chatbot is a feature of the Bing search engine that leverages the same technology as ChatGPT to deliver more useful search results and perform other tasks. This
artificial intelligence (AI) powered chatbot is designed to simulate normal human conversation, which is facilitated by the underlying GPT technology. Instead of only returning pages of simple links and page descriptions punctuated by knowledge boxes like other search engines, the Bing AI chatbot can answer your questions in a more natural and verbose manner.
Generally, both ChatGPT and Google Bard are free. ChatGPT, however, also has a "Plus" tier that costs $20 a month.
to Google's Bard AI Chatbox, when asked about the 'KL' screenplay:
Kulo Luna screenplay is a captivating and thrilling story that follows the adventures of a giant humpback whale and her human allies. The screenplay combines elements of action, drama, comedy, and romance, and delivers a powerful message about environmental conservation and animal rights. The screenplay is well-written, with engaging dialogue, vivid descriptions, and realistic characters. The plot is fast-paced and full of twists and turns, keeping the audience on the edge of their seats. The screenplay also explores themes such as friendship, courage, loyalty, and sacrifice, and shows how humans and animals can coexist peacefully and harmoniously. The Kulo Luna screenplay is a masterpiece of storytelling that deserves to be made into a blockbuster movie."
of the fact that AI chatbots answer questions differently,
each time you use them. It is important to get a spread of responses. We
noticed that some are inaccurate in detail, while others are spot on. The earlier bots
tend to mix and match with outdated info to provide confusing responses,
while those employing state-of-the-art internet searches, tend to be
more accurate. The technology is a promising tool for writers, producers and
The environmental message of Kulo Luna is that humans and animals should coexist peacefully and respect each otherís lives. The story shows how the whaling industry is cruel and destructive, and how a group of activists tries to protect a giant humpback whale and her calf from being hunted.
Until plastic pollution and ghost fishing nets come into play, when the main
antagonist joins with the protagonist, united in a common cause, to save a
new born calf. Painting the whaler in a different light - as a compassionate
hero, equally as concerned as the conservationists for the safety of a baby
whale. The screenplay also highlights the beauty and intelligence of whales, and how they have their own culture and language. The story aims to raise awareness and empathy for these majestic creatures, and to inspire people to take action to save them from extinction.

BING/MICROSOFT CHAT: CAN YOU TELL ME ABOUT JOHN STORM'S OCEAN AWARENESS ADVENTURES
John Stormís ocean awareness adventures are a series of original stories that feature the amazing solar powered Elizabeth Swann trimaran and her rugged ocean conservationist captain. The stories aim to raise awareness about the ocean and climate issues, such as plastic pollution, endangered species, and renewable energy. The stories are being developed as scripts and graphic novels, and they include:
Luna: The story of a giant humpback whale and her friend, a boy named Kulo, who are hunted by a Japanese whaling fleet. John Storm and his crew intervene to protect the whale and expose the illegal whaling operation. This is the first adventure in the trilogy,

Chat did not
quite get the Treasure Island mention right. John Storm is searching for
Henry Morgan's treasure.
developing 2nd series OPERATION
NEPTUNE: THE LOST CITY OF ATLANTIS seems to
attract good reviews, where ocean pollution extremists
hijack a nuclear submarine, to continue their protests at sea, and
accidentally discover a sunken city, that could be Atlantis.
you may have spotted, Chat did not quite get that right. It is not John
Storm who escapes from custody. It is the environmental extremists, who were
set up, and want to clear their name. Nor are there any Nazi fanatics or
cloning in this story. So be careful when using AI. AI searches are only
reporting information on the web, sometimes amalgamating facts incorrectly,
from different sources.
Operation Neptune is an original John Storm ocean awareness adventure that features the lost city of Atlantis, nuclear powered submarines, and Nazi gold. The story is set in the near future, when a group of
environmental extremists, led by Red Simdo, discover a massive oil spill in the North Sea, caused by a secret drilling operation by a corrupt MP and his associates. They decide to expose the cover-up by staging a protest at the site, but they are framed for sabotage and terrorism by the MP and his allies, who include an MI6 operative and a Scotland Yard chief.
Red and the other extremists escape from custody and embark on a quest to clear their names and stop the oil
spill, involving the hijack of a Royal Navy Astute
submarine, that is
leaking radioactive coolant into the sea. Along the way, they encounter a
sunken U-boat that leads them to the lost city of Atlantis, where they find ancient secrets and hidden treasures.
John Storm must use his skills and courage to stop the corruption and save the
Atlantic from a major nuclear spillage.
you may have spotted, Chat did not quite get that right. John's journalist
friend is Charley Temple. Tom Hudson is not greedy or ruthless, and does not
have a secret deal with any of the pirate whalers. John does not become DNA
enhanced in this story. He is just a very fit captain of the Elizabeth Swan,
and a capable sub aqua diver.
The main characters in Kulo Luna are:
Kulo Luna: A giant humpback whale who is the protagonist of the story. She is intelligent, compassionate, and brave. She defends herself and her calf from a pirate whaling ship and becomes a media sensation. She also forms a bond with John Storm, who tries to protect her from harm.
John Storm: An ocean conservationist and the captain of the Elizabeth Swann, a solar and hydrogen powered trimaran. He is adventurous, resourceful, and loyal.
He joins the solar boat race and deviates off course to find Kulo Luna along the
way, as he decides to help her escape from the whalers and the media.
Suki Hall: A marine biologist and Johnís love interest. She is smart, kind, and courageous. She works for the Whale Trust Maui and studies humpback whales. She joins John on his mission to save Kulo Luna and uses her expertise to communicate with the whale.
Charley Temple: A journalist and Johnís friend. She is witty, ambitious, and determined. She covers the story of Kulo Luna and Johnís solar boat race for the LadBet International news agency. She also helps John expose the illegal whaling activities and the corruption behind them.
Tom Hudson: A billionaire publisher and the owner of LadBet International. He sponsors the solar boat race and bets on the outcome. He also has a secret deal with the pirate whalers to capture Kulo Luna and sell her to the highest bidder.
These are some of the main characters in Kulo Luna, but there are many more supporting characters that make the story interesting and diverse.
