ChatGPT vs Google BARD: Who does it best


Artificial intelligence(AI) chatbots have come a long way in recent years. Two of the most prominent options available in 2023 are Google BARD and ChatGPT. Both chatbots provide natural language responses to natural language inputs, using machine learning and millions of data points to craft useful, informational responses. Although they are not perfect, they point to an exciting future of AI assistant search and learning tools that will make information all the more steadily available.

Key differences between ChatGPT and Google BARD

One key difference between ChatGPT and Google BARD is the data they use to generate responses, BARD has a direct integration to the web, giving it access to fresh and up to date information, which allows it to stay up to date on news, trends and other dynamic information that may not be captured on ChatGPTs training data. In contrast, ChatGPT is trained on a massive corpus of text from the internet, giving it a vast knowledge base that can be drawn from to provide accurate and informative responses to user queries.

A significant difference between the two is the way they generate responses. BARD uses Googles LaMDA language model, which carries the capability to understand nuances and colloquialisms that search engines tend to struggle with. This allows BARD to provide conversational responses that sound more human like and natural than those generated by ChatGPT. ChatGPT, however is designed to be an advanced conversational AI, and its responses are still impressively natural and human like. This means that ChatGPT will act better in a textual context when used for document planning, email writing, or content planning, due to it’s lack of colloquialisms.

Is ChatGPT or Google BARD more accurate?

When is comes to accuracy, both ChatGPT and BARD are susceptible to biases in their training data, outdated or conflicting information, and the potential for AI generated disinformation. However, Google is know to have a lot of experience with sorting out fact from fiction and surfacing the most accurate information available at the time. Googles BARD, for example works by collecting data from multiple online sources, filters our answers that fall outside a midrange determined by machine learning models, and presents a response that precedes its search responses. This level of accuracy and fact-checking is not currently present in ChatGPT, which can at times generate responses that are not entirely accurate.

A major advantage that BARD has is its integration with Google search, allowing users to have a seamless experience when looking for information. The context of earlier questions can be used to get more refined answers. ChatGPT, on the other hand is a standalone utility, and its responses may not be as well integrated with other search functions as BARD. At the moment BARD is currently in a testing phase with limited availability, however set to be released to the general public in the coming weeks and will eventually roll out into Google Search.

Despite the differences between the two chatbots, both BARD and ChatGPT represent significant advances in the field of conversational AI, and each has its unique strengths and weaknesses. BARD’s integration with Google Search and access to fresh, up-to-date information give it an edge in accuracy and versatility, while ChatGPTs vast knowledge base and ability to generate natural, human-like responses make it a valuable tool for a wide range of applications.

As the field of AI chatbots continues to evolve, it is likely that we will see even more innovative applications. With advances in machine learning, natural language processing, and other AI technologies, the possibilities for chatbot functionality are virtually limitless.


In conclusion, while both Google BARD and ChatGPT are significant advancements in the field of conversational AI, they each have unique strengths and weaknesses. ChatGPT proves better at creating and summarising text, whereas Google BARD is better at answering questions and conversing with users. Looking to the future, we can expect to see even more sophisticated chatbots capable of more complex tasks. AI chatbots have the potential to transform the way we interact with information and each other. As the field continues to evolve and new technologies are developed, the possibilities for AI chatbots are virtually endless.
