Hey folks, welcome to 5159 of you who joined us last week. Today we’ve got Open AI’s plan to release plugins to all ChatGPT plus users. On the other side, we have Sundar Pichai’s interview about his focus on search and finally a comparison of new Bard and ChatGPT.
Let’s get to it.
From our sponsor:
AI is all anyone has been able to talk about over the past few months, but the folks at Zapier are going beyond talking about AI; they’re making AI actionable.
On May 23rd, Zapier is inviting folks to see how they're using AI and Zapier together in all sorts of areas - from marketing and sales to customer success, support, and even revenue operations.
Sign up for the webinar to see how AI can supercharge your impact. And don’t worry if you can’t make the live event. Just register today and Zapier will send the recording once the webinar wraps up.
🤌 Our Picks
Highlights if you've only got 2 minutes
You’re gonna have to fork out at least $20 to reap the benefits of this pick, but either way a lot of you’ll be excited for it. OpenAI announced on Friday that they’ll be rolling out Plugins to all Plus users, making the full power of ChatGPT a whole lot more accessible.
Firstly the Web Browsing plugin is gonna be available, meaning that you’ll be able to hook it up to the internet to enhance its responses. Secondly, there’ll be over 70 third party apps available.
Hot on the heels of Google’s cascade of releases at their I/O conference, The Verge has bagged a 45-minute interview with CEO Sundar Pichai. When it’s someone that big talking about a topic so relevant, it’s always worth having a listen. You’ll hear how he feels going into this wave of AI development, what he thinks of the future of Search, and how it’ll impact Google and the world itself. Settle down, stick your headphones in, and soak it up.
Pick #1 was OpenAI and pick #2 was Google, so it’s only appropriate to see how they fare in a ChatGPT vs Bard battle for glory in pick number 3. This blog post considers a long-text summarization task, a coding task, some social media marketing, and a style-customised tweet. It involves Bard refusing to answer a pretty basic request, ChatGPT going well overboard on some emojis, and a clear winner… You’ll have to click the link to find out who .
