Bard Struggles Against ChatGPT
On the other hand, Google's alternative to OpenAI's ChatGPT, called Bard, is struggling to gain popularity. This is a challenge for Google as ChatGPT has over 100 million weekly users, providing valuable data for OpenAI to improve its products.
Challenges with PaLM Models
Additionally, Google faces difficulties with its PaLM 2 and PaLM Chat, ranking the lowest in hallucination rates according to Vectara's Hallucination Leaderboard. PaLM 2 and PaLM Chat have rates of 12.1% and 27.2%, respectively, compared to GPT-4's 3% hallucination rate.
In summary: - Google's Gemini project is delayed. - Bard is struggling against ChatGPT's popularity. - Google's PaLM models have higher hallucination rates compared to GPT-4.
