Google LaMDA Versus ChatGPT in the New AI Wars• https://www.nextbigfuture.com, by Brian Wang
ChatGPT with Microsoft support is something that could enable the Microsoft Bing search engine to surpass Google search. The new AI Wars are the next stage of the internet browser and search engine wars of the past.
Google version of ChatGPT is LaMDA. It works on Transformer, a neural network architecture that Google Research invented and open-sourced in 2017. This is the same code used by ChatGPT and BERT (Bidirectional Encoder Representations from Transformers).
Google founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin met with current Google CEO Sundar Pichai for a high-level brainstorming session to accelerate a faster and better action plan versus ChatGPT. Microsoft has invested $10 billion in ChatGPT.
Google will demo a ChatGPT alternative with better comprehension skills and more precise answers to queries.
Google I/O 2023 will take place in person in May 2023.
Replacing or enhancing regular search with AI conversation system will require speeding up the current chat systems by millions or even a billion times.
Capabilities Of Google LaMDA
LaMDA is trained on 137 Billion parameters and with 1.56 Trillion publicly available words, dialogue data, and documents on the internet. On top of that, LaMDA is also fine-tuned to always mold its response on three key parameters – Safety, Quality, and Groundedness.
