Bard, Chat GPT's lesser-known competitor from Google, is an effective conversational LLM. It does just about as well on most common writing and linguistic tasks.
Bard can also do some things Chat GPT is just now starting to do, albeit in a different model. Examples include summarizing your GMail inbox and creating shared conversations usable in tandem with other people. This is similar to what I recently covered in CharacterAI.
Why Chat GPT
On top of this, Bard is still limited to plugins from Google's properties, with no 3rd party plugins available to help it from an extensibility perspective.
Also in Monday's announcement from OpenAI is the ability for developers to empower GPTs with API integrations to their solutions and/or tools and data sets. This will be a powerful get. The earlier developers entrench themselves, the less likely they are to pivot to an alternative like Bard later, so long as the integrations remain stable.
At least for now, I think OpenAI's Chat GPT remains the more approachable and usable solution for developers, businesses, and consumers.
