Google CEO Sundar Pichai asked employees to spend a few hours a week testing the company’s new conversational artificial intelligence Bard in an internal company letter on Wednesday (15th).
Pi Caixin asked every Google employee to contribute to shaping Bard and spend 2 to 4 hours on Bard for testing. The company will release more detailed instructions next week. He also reminded employees that some of Gogole’s most successful products were not the first to market. These products gained momentum because they solved important needs of users and were built on deep technical insights.
Before Google hit the market in 1996, many search engines existed. As Google began to dominate the industry, the original competitors all but disappeared. And in mobile phones, Google launched Android years after the BlackBerry (BlackBerry), and is now the most-used mobile operating system in the world.
“I know this moment is disturbing. It can be expected that the basic technology is developing rapidly and has great potential,” Pi Caixin wrote. Facing the frequent actions of ChatGPT and competitor Microsoft, he and other company executives cannot keep up with the outside world Expected and criticized.
Microsoft announced the integration of ChatGPT into the Bing search engine last week. Google then released Bard, which also has a conversational experience, for its own search engine. However, due to the display of Bard’s function, there was wrong information and a mistake in the presentation. The parent company Alphabet was slammed by investors. At one point, the stock price plummeted nearly 8%, wiping out more than $100 billion in market value.
The announcement of Bard’s big failure caused employees to criticize Pichai, and there were criticisms of “hasty”, “clumsy” and “short-sighted and short-sighted” within the company.
“The most important thing for us right now is to focus on building a great product and take responsibility for it,” Pichai said. Based on the test.
Google is going all in on stress testing Bard to make the product better. At the same time, Microsoft is also gradually opening up for users to test the Bing search engine combined with ChatGPT. AI is about to enter the Internet search that people are used to every day, and the entire industry is undergoing tremendous changes.
