In today's digital age, AI tools have become increasingly popular in assisting users with human-like responses. Among the leading AI language models, we have ChatGPT, Bing, and Google Bard, developed by OpenAI, Microsoft, and Google respectively. Each model possesses its own set of strengths and limitations, making the choice of the most helpful AI contingent upon the specific task or inquiry at hand.

In this article, we will delve into the disparities between these three prominent language models, aiding you in making an informed decision about which one is most advantageous to you.

The rise of AI in search engines

Artificial intelligence has experienced a meteoric rise across various domains in recent years. One of its most prevalent applications is in search engines, where AI-powered tools are employed to assist users in searching for information, answering questions, and receiving personalized recommendations.

At the forefront of this technological advancement are three notable AI tools: ChatGPT, Bing, and Google Bard. Each of these tools offers distinct features and capabilities, catering to the diverse needs of users.


ChatGPT, developed by OpenAI, is an AI language model founded on the GPT-3.5 architecture, comprising multiple layers of artificial neural networks. Its primary function revolves around engaging in conversations with users, addressing their queries, and providing information on a wide array of topics. ChatGPT has garnered an active user base of approximately 100 million.

To train ChatGPT, a vast corpus of text from the internet is utilized as its training data. This data undergoes tokenization, which involves breaking down the text into individual tokens such as words or punctuation marks. It is important to note that the training data is unlabeled, allowing the model to discern patterns and relationships within the text without explicit labels or annotations.

Accessing ChatGPT is a seamless process via a web-based interface, enabling users to initiate conversations with the tool effortlessly. This AI model proves particularly useful in tasks requiring natural language processing, including customer service, technical support, and personal assistance.

However, ChatGPT does possess certain limitations. Although it can provide information on a diverse range of topics, its responses may not always be as accurate as those generated by a search engine like Bing. Moreover, when confronted with complex or technical queries, ChatGPT might encounter challenges, as its responses are derived from pre-existing data rather than real-time search results.

Bing, crafted by Microsoft, stands as a search engine employing a blend of machine learning algorithms, statistical models, and heuristics to deliver relevant search outcomes to users. With a market share of approximately 2.79% according to StatCounter GlobalStats data from April 2023, Bing has firmly established itself as one of the leading search engines worldwide.

The training data for Bing consists of diverse sources, including user queries, search results, and web pages. Bing harnesses both supervised and unsupervised learning techniques during training. In the supervised learning approach, the model is trained using labeled data, encompassing user queries and search results. On the other hand, the unsupervised learning approach involves extracting features and patterns from the textual data, enabling the model to better comprehend the semantics and context of search queries.

An intriguing aspect of Bing is its image search functionality, which employs computer vision to understand image content and provide more precise search outcomes. This makes Bing an excellent resource for users seeking images for presentations or other projects. Furthermore, Bing seamlessly integrates with various Microsoft products, such as Office and Windows, simplifying the process of accessing and sharing search results across different platforms. Additionally, Bing offers a unique feature called "Bing Rewards," allowing users to accumulate points through their searches, which can later be redeemed for gift cards, discounts, and other rewards.

Bing also offers a chatbot feature, capable of answering questions, providing recommendations, and executing user tasks. While it excels in simpler tasks like setting reminders and scheduling appointments, its conversational abilities are not as sophisticated as those of ChatGPT.

Google Bard

Google Bard, an AI language model developed by Google, harnesses the power of LaMDA (Language Model for Dialogue Applications). This tool primarily aims to assist users in composing poetry and song lyrics by suggesting rhymes and phrases. Although still in its beta phase, Google Bard's underlying architecture integrates neural networks, statistical models, and generative algorithms.

The training data for Google Bard comprises an extensive collection of poetry samples, encompassing classic literature, contemporary poetry, and user-generated content. The model is trained using labeled data, allowing it to learn the intricate patterns and structures inherent in various forms of poetry. This enables Google Bard to generate creative and technically proficient poetic compositions.

One remarkable feature of Google Bard lies in its user-friendly interface, accessible through a web-based platform, enabling immediate utilization. Notably, Google Bard possesses the ability to emulate the writing style of renowned authors, allowing it to generate text that resonates with the likes of Shakespeare or J. K. Rowling. Consequently, it proves to be an invaluable tool for users aspiring to write in specific styles or tones. Additionally, the AI tool exhibits utility in tasks such as text summarization and translation.

    Missing from the “story”: Ukraine’s agreement to never use Starlink for military purposes. This is why.

    Ghacks quality is AI driven and very poor these days since AI is really artificial stupidity.

      “Elon Musk biographer Walter Isaacson forced to ‘clarify’ book’s account of Starlink incident in Ukraine War

      “To clarify on the Starlink issue: the Ukrainians THOUGHT coverage was enabled all the way to Crimea, but it was not. They asked Musk to enable it for their drone sub attack on the Russian fleet. Musk did not enable it, because he thought, probably correctly, that would cause a major war.”

    Well, using Brave, I can see Llama 2 being decent, but it is still not great?
    All these AI stuff seems more like a ‘toy’ than anything special, I mean, it is good for some stuff like translations or asking quick questions but not for asking anything important.

    The problem is Brave made it mostly for summarizing websites and all that, but all these Big tech controlled stuff, won’t summarize articles it doesn’t agree with, so it is also useless in many situations where you just want it to give you a quick summarization, and then it starts throwing you little ‘speeches’ about how it doesn’t agree with it and then it never summarizes anything, but give you all the 30 paragraphs reasons why the article is wrong, like if I am asking it what it thinks.

    SO all this AI is mostly a toy, but Facebook with all the power they have will be able to get so much data from people, it can ‘train’ or better say, write algorithms that will get better with time.

    But It is not intelligence, it is really not intelligence all these AI technology.

    Article Title: Tech leaders meet to discuss regulation of AI
    Article URL: []

    The eternal problematic of regulating, here applied to AI. Should regulations (interventionism) have interfered in the course of mankind ever since Adam and Eve where would we be now? Should spirituality, morality, ethics never have interfered where would we be now? I truly have always believed that the only possible consensus between ethics and freedom is that of individuals’ own consciousness.

    Off-topic : Musk’s beard looks like a wound, AI-Human hand-shake is a quite nice pic :)

      Haha, oh dear, Tom.
      I thought that the comments system issue where comments shows up under a totally different article was fixed. But seeing your comment here, the “error” is clearly still active. Hopefully it is sorted as soon as possible.

        Article Title: Tech leaders meet to discuss regulation of AI
        Article URL: []

        Hi Karl :) Well, let’s remain positive and see the good sides : one’s comment appearing within different articles (the one it was written form and for, another unrelated one) brings ubiquity to that comment : say it once and it’s published twice, double your pleasure and double your fun (“with double-mint, double-mint gum” and old ad!). Let’s forget the complications and inherited misunderstandings it leads to. Not sure the fun is worth the complications though. Which is why, with a few others here, I include Article Title & URL with comment, to ease a bit the pain.

        This said, I’m trying to find a logic key which would explain the mic-mac. One thing is sure : comments appearing twice keep the same comment number.

        For instance my comment to which you replied just above is originally :


        It then got duplicated to :


        Same comment number, which let’s me imagine comments are defined by their number as before but now dissociated in a way from their full path : that’s where something is broken, as i see it.

        First amused me, then bothered, annoyed (I took some holidays to lower the pressure), then triggered curiosity.
        I’m putting our best detectives on the affair, stay tuned.

      2. Karl said on September 16, 2023 at 8:58 am

        Hehe, yes indeed, staying positive is what we should do. Good comes for those who wait, as the old saying goes. Hopefully true for this as well.

        Interesting that the comments number stays the same, I noted that one thing is added to the duplicated comment in the URL, an error code, the following: “error-code-0x0003”.

        Not useful for us, but hopefully for the developers (if there are any?), that perhaps will be able to sort this comments error out. Or our detectives, I hope they work hard on this as we speak ;).

        Cheers and have a great weekend!

      3. Karl said on September 16, 2023 at 9:18 am

        Whoops, my bad. I just now realized that the error I saw in your example URL (error-code-0x0003) was part of the linked article title and generated by Geforce! Oh dear! Why did I try to make it more confusing than it already is lol!

        @Karl, you write,

        “I noted that one thing is added to the duplicated comment in the URL, an error code, the following: “error-code-0x0003”.”

        I haven’t noticed that up to now but indeed brings an element to those who are actually trying to resolve the issue.
        I do hope that Softonic engineers are working on fixing this issue, which may be more complicated than we can imagine. Anything to do with databases can become a nightmare, especially when the database remains accessed while being repaired, so to say.

        P.S. My comment about remaining positive was, in this context, sarcastic. Your literal interpretation could mean you are, factually, more inclined to positiveness than I am myself : maybe a lesson of life for me :)

        Have a nice, happy, sunny weekend as well :)

        Correct: AI is certainly overhyped, it’s also advertised by some shady individuals. It’s can also be misused to write poor quality articles or fake your homework.

        16 September 2023, this website is still experiencing issues with posts erroneously appearing in the wrong threads. There are even duplicates of the exact same post ID within the same page in some places.

      6. 💾 said on September 16, 2023 at 8:41 pm

        Clerical error “[It] can also be misused …” you just can’t get the staff nowadays.

        Obviously [#comment-4573795] was originally posted within [/2023/09/14/artificial-intelligence-regulation-tech-leaders/]. However, it has appeared misplaced within several threads.

        Including the following:

    “How much radiation is dangerous?
    Ionizing radiation, such as X-rays and gamma rays, is more energetic and potentially harmful. Exposure to doses greater than 1,000 millisieverts (mSv) in a short period can increase the risk of immediate health effects.
    Above about 100 mSv, the risk of long-term health effects, such as cancer, increases with the dose.”

    This ban is about NON-ionizing radiation limits, because there is too much radio wave power from the iphone. This has nothing to do with the much more dangerous ionizing radiations like X-rays, that are obviously not emitted at all by mobile phones. I invite you to correct your article.

    “ makes history as the first official UFO website”

    I wonder if it’s just smelly crowdsourcing for the spotting of chinese balloons or whatever paranoia they’re trying to instigate, or if they are also intentionally trying to look stupid enough to look for alien spaceships, for whatever reason. Maybe trying to look cute, instead of among the worst butchers of history ?

    “The tech titan’s defense”
    “Whether he provides a clear explanation or justifies his actions”
    “the moral compass”

    You take it for granted that this company should agree being a military communications provider on a war zone, and so directly so that his network would be used to control armed drones charged with explosives rushing to their targets.

    You don’t need to repeat here everything you read in the mainstream press without thinking twice about it. You’re not just pointing interestingly that his company is more involved in the war that one may think at first and that this power is worrying, you’re also declaring your own support for a side in an imperialist killfest, blaming him for not participating enough in the bloodshed.

    Now your article is unclear on how this company could be aware that its network is used for such military actions at a given time, which has implications of its own.

    Reading other sources on that quickly, it seems that the company was: explicitly asked ; to extend its network geographically ; for a military attack ; at a time when there was no war but with the purpose of triggering it, if I understood well. You have to be joking if you’re crying about that not happening at that time. But today you have your war, be happy.
