Siri is a voice-activated personal assistant AI developed by Apple, designed primarily to perform tasks and answer questions within the context of Apple’s ecosystem. While Siri is capable of answering some basic questions and performing specific tasks such as setting reminders or sending text messages, it has limited knowledge and does not possess the same depth of understanding or natural language processing capabilities as ChatGPT and Google Bard.

While ChatGPT has been making waves in recent months, Google responded with a large language model of its own following Microsoft’s integration of ChatGPT with Bing. This is known as Google Bard and offers a similar experience to what you’ll find with ChatGPT, but it’s also possible to use Google Bard on iPhone and iPad, without needing to rely on API keys or jumping through a bunch of hoops.

In essence, while Siri is a valuable tool for performing basic tasks and answering simple questions, ChatGPT is a more versatile and powerful AI that can understand and respond to complex queries and engage in meaningful conversations with users.

Google Bard is a large language model chatbot developed by Google AI. It is a conversational AI service that can be used to have conversations with humans, generate text, translate languages, write different kinds of creative content, and answer questions in an informative way. It is still under development, but it has the potential to be a powerful tool for communication and creativity.

Bard is powered by LaMDA, Google’s large language model. LaMDA is a machine learning model that has been trained on a massive dataset of text and code. This allows Bard to generate text that is similar to human-written text, and to translate languages accurately. Bard can also write different kinds of creative content, such as poems, code, scripts, and musical pieces.

You can respond with a question related to the prompt provided, or enter a different prompt entirely at the bottom of the screen. However, within each provided response, there are a few different options. You can also provide more detailed feedback by clicking on the three dots next to the thumbs-up or thumbs-down buttons. This will open a menu where you can write a comment about the response. The provided feedback will help Google Bard improve its responses over time.

Adjacent to that, you’ll find a “New Response” button that functions as a way to “reset” Bard. Additionally, there is a “Google it” button available if you’d like to seek further information. By selecting this button, Bard will offer a list of “search related topics,” and upon clicking one of them, a new Google search window will open.

There’s even an option to View other drafts which will show you up to a total of three drafts that were generated with Google Bard. In most instances, each draft is different from the others, giving you different results to view and in some cases, you’ll see different formats.

As we’ve mentioned, Google Bard is even newer than ChatGPT, at least in its public-facing form. We expect the versatility and usefulness of Bard to continue to grow in the coming months and perhaps it will eventually be integrated into Google Assistant.
