ChatGPT is widely recognized as one of the most advanced and sophisticated language models available. Its talents have enabled it to execute a wide range of tasks, including writing coherent and compelling literature and answering complex questions with amazing accuracy. However, the introduction of Google Bard has shifted the AI landscape, and many people are now turning their attention to this new language model. Google Bard, unlike ChatGPT, is free and easy to use, with no waitlists or other hurdles to entry. As a result, it is quickly becoming a popular choice for both developers and researchers interested in exploring the potential of natural language processing and machine learning.

Here are 10 powerful things Bard can do that ChatGPT cannot:

1. Internet Access

Get quick answers based on real-time information.

It’s free and fast.

Example: “How much capital has been invested into AI in 2023?”

2. Plugins

– Book a reservation with OpenTable
– Plan a trip with Kayak
