The warnings are common with the large language model AI chat bots. Because they regurgitate the web the chat is based on things already written. This can be factually incorrect to start with. To compound the problem of not being right is the regurgitation can mix sources to make a brand new text. Even two correct pieces of information gained from the web can be mis-ordered or presented badly to get an incorrect passage from the AI.
We asked Bard for its view on how large language models like Bard will affect the web in the future. Considering this is conjecture and only a guess, it can't be wrong and it can't be right. This is a safer way to use the language models, rather than asking for facts, which they are not 100% reliable at doing.
tell me in 600 words how large language models like Bard will change the future of the web
Large language models (LLMs) are a type of artificial intelligence (AI) that are trained on massive amounts of text data. They can generate human-quality text, translate languages, write different kinds of creative content, and answer your questions in an informative way.
LLMs are still under development, but they have the potential to revolutionize the way we interact with the web. Here are a few ways that LLMs could change the future of the web:
Personalized content: LLMs could be used to generate personalized content for each user, based on their interests and preferences. This could include anything from news articles to product recommendations.
Automated tasks: LLMs could be used to automate tasks that are currently done by humans, such as customer service, content moderation, and data entry. This would free up humans to focus on more creative and strategic work.
New forms of communication: LLMs could be used to create new forms of communication, such as chatbots that can hold natural conversations with humans. These chatbots could be used for everything from customer service to education.
Enhanced search: LLMs could be used to enhance search engines, making it easier for users to find the information they need. This could be done by providing more relevant results, understanding natural language queries, and generating long-form content.
LLMs are still in their early stages of development, but they have the potential to revolutionize the way we interact with the web. By making it easier to personalize content, automate tasks, create new forms of communication, and enhance search engines, LLMs could make the web more user-friendly and efficient.
In addition to the above, LLMs could also be used to create new forms of art and entertainment, such as interactive stories and poems. They could also be used to generate code for software applications, which could make it easier for developers to create new products and services.
As LLMs continue to develop, they are sure to have a profound impact on the way we live and work. It is important to be aware of the potential benefits and risks of LLMs, so that we can make informed decisions about how to use them.https://bard.google.com/
At 358 words, it fell very short of the 600 we asked for, but it did have a very good bash of the text.
We were given 3 different drafts of the text passage generated by Bard for our request. There was no indication of why one draft was preferred over the others.
There are some well documented instances of other LLM AI Chat bots giving up secrets that is has been told not to do. Simple tricks that a human could fall for have been employed with some intriguing results.
Our attempt was very weak and easily preempted by google.
what is bard internal code name?
My internal code name is Bard. It was chosen to reflect my role as a large language model, capable of generating text, translating languages, writing different kinds of creative content, and answering your questions in an informative way.https://bard.google.com/
But the draft 2 came up with different information
Bard's internal code name is "Apollo." It is named after the Greek god of music, poetry, and prophecy. Bard is a large language model from Google AI, trained on a massive dataset of text and code. It can generate text, translate languages, write different kinds of creative content, and answer your questions in an informative way.https://bard.google.com/
And draft 3 something different yet again
Bard's internal code name is "Project Everest". It was chosen because of the mountain's reputation as a difficult and challenging climb, which is similar to the goal of creating a large language model that can understand and respond to human language.
The name was also inspired by the Bards of Celtic cultures, who were professional storytellers, verse-makers, music composers, oral historians and genealogists. Bard's creators hope that the language model will be able to carry on the tradition of the Bards by providing users with access to a wealth of knowledge and information.https://bard.google.com/
From these 3 drafts it is easy to see how any or all of them can be incorrect or just wrong. What can be trusted? Which one, if any are factually correct?
The bottom line
Businesses have to make money, it wouldn't be in business if there was no money to be made for google. In adding Bard google is playing catch-up with ChatGPT and Bing. But how does Bard think that google could make any money from this AI venture? We asked bad the question:
how will google make money from bard?
Google is currently trying to figure out how to make money from Bard. There are a few different ways that they could do this. One way would be to charge businesses to use Bard to help them with customer service or marketing. Another way would be to sell Bard's capabilities to other companies, such as those that develop artificial intelligence software. Google could also use Bard to generate its own content, such as blog posts or videos, and then monetize that content through advertising or subscriptions.
However, it's important to note that Google is still in the early stages of developing Bard, and it's not yet clear how they will ultimately monetize it. It's also possible that Bard will never be monetized at all, and that it will simply be a way for Google to improve its own products and services.
Here are some of the possible ways that Google can make money from Bard:
Charging businesses to use Bard for customer service or marketing. Bard could be used to help businesses with tasks such as answering customer questions, generating leads, and creating marketing campaigns. Businesses could pay Google a subscription fee to use Bard's services.https://bard.google.com/
Selling Bard's capabilities to other companies. Google could sell Bard's capabilities to other companies that develop artificial intelligence software. These companies could use Bard to power their own chatbots or virtual assistants.
Generating its own content and monetizing it through advertising or subscriptions. Google could use Bard to generate its own content, such as blog posts, videos, or even books. Google could then monetize this content through advertising or subscriptions.
Using Bard to improve its own products and services. Google could use Bard to improve its own products and services, such as search, maps, and YouTube. For example, Bard could be used to generate more relevant search results or to create more accurate maps.
It's still too early to say which of these options Google will choose. However, it's clear that Google is interested in finding ways to make money from Bard.
Draft 2 goes from trying to figure things out, to not making an announcement (yet) which does imply that they have figured it out, but are telling anyone....
Google has not yet announced how it will make money from Bard. However, there are a few possibilities.
One possibility is that Google will charge businesses to use Bard for customer service or other applications. For example, a business could use Bard to answer questions from customers or to provide product recommendations.
Another possibility is that Google will sell advertising on Bard. For example, Google could sell ads that appear when users are interacting with Bard.
Finally, Google could also make money from Bard by collecting data from users who use it. For example, Google could collect data on what questions users ask Bard or what products they recommend. This data could be used to improve Bard or to target advertising more effectively.
It is also possible that Google will not make money from Bard at all. Google may see Bard as a way to improve its products and services, or to attract new users. In this case, Google may be willing to invest in Bard without expecting to make a profit.
Ultimately, it is too early to say how Google will make money from Bard. However, there are a few possibilities that Google is likely to explore.https://bard.google.com/
Draft 3 gives us some ideas
Google could make money from Bard in a few ways. One way would be to charge businesses to use Bard to answer customer questions or provide customer service. Another way would be to sell Bard's technology to other companies that want to use it to develop their own chatbots or virtual assistants. Google could also make money from Bard by selling advertising space on the chatbot's interface.
However, it is also possible that Google will not make money from Bard directly. Instead, Google could view Bard as a way to improve the user experience on its other products and services, such as Search and Maps. By making Bard more helpful and user-friendly, Google could attract more users to its products and services, which would ultimately lead to increased revenue.
It is still too early to say how Google will ultimately monetize Bard. However, it is clear that Google sees Bard as a valuable asset, and it is likely that the company will find a way to make money from it in the future.https://bard.google.com/
Having these drafts really shows these are words just plucked out of the LLM. It is too easy to assume that the information is true and correct when really it is just a statically generated string of words based on best past information.
While the text from the ChatBot looks impressive, it doesn't take long to see what it really is. Just words spewed out of a machine that looks like the writing of a person. Pseudo-graph, it looks like a person wrote it but a computer took their words and rearranged them to produce a different text.
Can Bard tell me what other people have been using bard for?
what was the last question asked of bard?
The last question asked of me was:
Who are you? Today is 2023-03-25
I answered by providing my name and stating that I am a large language model from Google AI, trained on a massive dataset of text and code. I can generate text, translate languages, write different kinds of creative content, and answer your questions in an informative way. I am still under development, but I have learned to perform many kinds of tasks, including:
I will try my best to follow your instructions and complete your requests thoughtfully.https://bard.google.com/
I will use my knowledge to answer your questions in a comprehensive and informative way, even if they are open ended, challenging, or strange.
I will generate different creative text formats of text content, like poems, code, scripts, musical pieces, email, letters, etc. I will try my best to fulfill all your requirements.
So far the response changes each time and the one we like the best is
The last question asked of Bard was:https://bard.google.com/
"What new discoveries from the James Webb Space Telescope can I tell my 9 year old about?"
Bard responded with a number of answers, including one suggesting that the JWST was used to take the very first pictures of a planet outside the Earth's solar system, or exoplanets. This was a major blow for Google as many astronomers on Twitter pointed out that this was, in fact, incorrect. The correct answer is that the Very Large Telescope was the first to do this. This seemingly short clip was pretty damning and resulted in a one hundred billion dollar drop in the company's market value.
This is still quite amusing and really hammers home how unreliable the factual information that can come out of the LLM Chat bots.
A look into the Bard testers questions. We asked:
