London. Even before launching its software ‘Bard’ against ChatGPT, a chatbot with artificial intelligence, Google has suffered a huge loss of $100 billion. Due to a mistake by Bard, the shares of Alphabet, the main company running Google, fell drastically on Wednesday. The company’s shares fell up to 8 per cent. Bad news for Google has also come from Microsoft. It is reported that Microsoft is also bringing a new artificial intelligence search engine. With this, Google trying to compete with ChatGPT is going to face a bigger challenge than Microsoft.

Google was showcasing its chatbot Bard on Wednesday. During this, a person asked the question, what new discovery has been made by the James Webb Telescope? Bard gave two correct answers to this, but got one wrong. Bard misinformed this man that the James Webb telescope had taken the first picture of a planet outside our solar system. Whereas, in the year 2004 itself, a photo of a planet outside our galaxy has been taken from the telescope of the American space agency NASA. This is how Google’s Bard gave wrong information about the James Webb telescope. As soon as the news of this spread, the prices of Google’s shares started falling.
Now let us tell you what ChatGPT and Bard are. Both these tools work through Artificial Intelligence. It is claimed that from both you can gather accurate information about everything. At present only information up to the year 2021 can be obtained in ChatGPT. Google is making Bard such that there will always be new information in it. With ChatGPT you can also write stories and media houses can also make news. In this way ChatGPT and Bard are being considered as the search engines of the future. Apart from the search engine, both of them can also do many things. This can also change the nature of jobs in future.
