Anyone try Bard yet? Is it good?

Transformers, the T in GPT was invented at Google during Google Brain. They made possible this round of progress.

> Transformers were introduced in 2017 by a team at Google Brain[1] and are increasingly the model of choice for NLP problems,[3] replacing RNN models such as long short-term memory (LSTM). The additional training parallelization allows training on larger datasets. This led to the development of pretrained systems such as BERT (Bidirectional Encoder Representations from Transformers) and GPT (Generative Pre-trained Transformer), which were trained with large language datasets, such as the Wikipedia Corpus and Common Crawl, and can be fine-tuned for specific tasks.

Bard will most likely win long term, though I wish it was just called Google Brain. Bard is a horrible name.

I think they are going to name them by alphabet. The next version will start with a C, then D etc.

My guess after BARD. We'll have CAT or CARL or CARD.

It’s basically the same as GPT3 so far in my limited experience. It’s definitely willing to be confident in lying to you. I asked it for three authors who wrote about the Cult of Kosmos (a fictional cult from Assassins Creed Odyssey) and it gave me three books. At least one of which wasn’t a real book. And when I asked about what one of the authors found regarding the Cult of Kosmos it spouted off some BS which was a mix of the plot of the Assassins Creed game mixed with the authors actual work from the sound of things.
