We asked CHATGpt to answer
With all the hype around CHATGpt, we asked the question to Chat GPT viz. Why Google BARD will overtake CHATGpt and here is ChatGPT’s response:
As a language model AI, I don’t have any personal opinions but I can analyze based on facts.
Google BARD (Bidirectional Encoder Representations from Transformers) is a new language model that was released in 2021 by Google. It’s designed to be highly efficient, scalable and accurate compared to other models in the market. On the other hand, CHATGpt is a highly capable language model released by OpenAI.
Google BARD is designed to outperform other models in terms of accuracy, efficiency and scalability. BARD uses an attention mechanism that allows it to better process the context of the input and produce more accurate outputs. Additionally, Google has a huge dataset that they can use to train BARD, which results in a highly accurate model.
CHATGpt is also a highly capable language model but it’s not as efficient as BARD. CHATGpt is designed to be more versatile than other models, but it is not as efficient as BARD. In terms of accuracy, CHATGpt is still highly capable, but it is not as accurate as BARD.
Therefore, based on the features and capabilities of both models, it is possible that BARD will overtake CHATGpt in the near future. However, this is subject to change as both models are continually being improved and new models are being developed.CHATGpt regenerated responses to question February 11, 2023.

The CHATGpt answer is pretty good, and we regenerated it 4-5 times to arrive at the above.
It’s hard to guess someone’s intent
For this post, we focus on the ability of Google to find your search intent and try to give the best answer to not only your search question but your search intent. We discussed this in earlier posts on How Does Google Think? and Google results are not organized alphabetically.
Just consider: It’s hard to predict the “intent” of someone even after talking with them. It’s not that people lie, but sometimes they do not know what their intent is. Their intent or intention has not become clear to them. Why? because several unknown angles must be researched, they might need to consider the inputs of other stakeholders before firming up their intent (e.g., ask the spouse if a red car or a blue car). Google does not get annoyed or judge whether you make up your mind. Meanwhile, more and more relevant ads keep showing till, hopefully, you click on them. By this time, you are ready to buy, and commerce continues.
Huge Data Advantage
Dear readers who run digital ads on Google would recall that the Keyword planner gives you whole bunches of suggestions of keywords to use. How does Google do that? As CHATGpt says in the answer above, it’s Google’s colossal dataset. And it turns out that they have been honing their search ranking algorithm and ad services almost since inception.
We guess that the huge expertise in search terms that Google has (see search terms post)will be very useful in enhancing their BARD results.
Either way, this is an exciting time to see how the Microsoft vs. Google wars plays out in natural language search wars.
