Understanding the latest AI Chatbots

Author: Alexia Pringiers


If you're up to date with the latest trends and news, you've probably heard of Chat GPT. Since becoming a viral sensation, it's the new talk of the web that has got people from all walks of life thinking about the future of Artificial Intelligence (AI). Can AI revolutionise how we work? Will we be able to hand over our mundane day-to-day tasks to bots? Is this the beginning of the end for writing?!

Well, no one is really sure. But what we do know is that Chat GPT is not the only Chatbot out there, and these bots are getting more human by the day. So, what are the leading AI tools we should familiarise ourselves with to understand the capabilities of today's most popular Chatbots?


First, let’s cover the basics of AI Chatbots

When we talk about AI today, we usually refer to a term known as “machine learning”. In simple terms, this relates to software algorithms that can learn and get better at carrying out one specific activity as they are exposed to more data. The most recent AI applications  allow us to use them for just about any task we can develop.

A Chatbot is a computer program that uses AI and natural language processing to understand customer questions and provide responses to them, mimicking human conversation. By answering questions and requests from users via text, chatbots make it simple for people to access the information  they need. The most recent AI Chatbots process data within human language to provide highly tailored experiences, which has clear advantages for both customers and businesses.

Introducing Chat GPT

Chat Generative Pre-training Transformer, better known as Chat GPT, is a conversational interface for Open AI’s GPT-3 large language model, which was only recently made available to the public as a free research preview. It will output text in any format, such as prose, poetry, or even computer code, in response to text prompts like questions or instructions. The dialogue format makes it possible for Chat GPT to answer follow-up questions, admit mistakes, challenge incorrect assumptions, and reject inappropriate requests.

AI Powered Microsoft Bing and Edge

Microsoft recently introduced an AI-powered Bing search engine and Edge browser, which you can preview now at bing.com, to deliver better search, more thorough responses, a fresh chat experience, and the capacity to create content.

The new Bing is powered by a brand-new, next-generation Open AI large language model that is supposedly more powerful than Chat GPT and tailored especially for search. It incorporates significant innovations and learnings from Chat GPT and will be faster, more precise, and more powerful. This enhanced version uses recent information, whereas Chat GPT can only summarise information dated back several years.

The Google Bard AI Chatbot

Google’s most recent development in conversational AI is the Google Bard AI Chatbot. This state-of-the-art AI technology seeks to transform how we use search engines and the way we obtain information. Google Bard AI chatbot is an experimental conversational AI service that can answer a range of questions using a combination of deep learning algorithms, constantly learning from its encounters with humans to improve its performance. 

When the Google Bard AI link gets shared, it will likely be integrated into Google search and will be accessed by asking questions through the search bar. To provide up-to-date answers to text prompts, the Chatbot uses data from the internet.

Final thoughts


One of the most exciting possibilities is how AI might enhance human understanding of information and transform it into valuable knowledge, making it  more straightforward for people to find what they're looking for and complete tasks.

Overall, all three of these new AI services provide an intriguing glimpse of the potential future of AI: a future in which marketers may spend less time on routine activities and more time thinking, producing high-impact content, and interacting directly with prospects and customers.

Although each technology has obvious advantages, it's crucial that marketers exercise caution and incorporate their perspectives, stories, and tones into their content to continue connecting with their customers and developing a feeling of legitimacy throughout all their content. 

Additionally, while some have speculated that AI chatbots could soon take over traditional search engines, the technology has problems, including bias and offering false and misleading information in response to questions. As a result, there is a fear that using language models could create more misinformation and debate.
