On Monday, Alphabet CEO John Hennessy revealed the reason for Google’s reluctance to announce the artificial intelligence app Bard to compete with ChatGPT in recent days.

He said the announcement of the app, which finally went public last week, was meant to show that the company has technology similar to ChatGPT, although it still has a long way to go before the final product is ready.

“Google was hesitant to turn Bard into a product because they didn’t think it was ready yet, but it’s cool technology,” added Hennessy, who has served as chairman of Google’s parent company since 2018. He went on to say that he believes that in another year or two, generative AI will become a really useful tool for the general public.

Hennessy spoke at a summit hosted by venture capital firm Celesta Capital in Mountain View, California.

Hennessy has a long history in technology, including his work as a professor, researcher, and founder of companies. He also served as president of Stanford University from 2000 to 2016, according to CNBC viewed by Al Arabiya.net. .

Hennessy noted that Google has come under pressure due to the sudden surge in interest in ChatGPT.

Google kicked off its ChatGPT response last week by announcing Bard. However, the announcement seemed hasty as Microsoft announced the integration of “ChatGPT” artificial intelligence technology into its “Bing” search engine, prompting investors to aggressively sell shares and send Google’s stock down 9%. on the day of the announcement.

Hennessy said Google has been slow to roll out rival ChatGPT in part because it continues to give incorrect answers.

He also pointed out that the new technology could not be introduced to users who might give wrong answers or toxic content, especially since the Internet’s founding generation considered such things to be “rogue”.

Hennessy added that he was impressed with the capabilities of “ChatGPT”, especially the exponential growth of the application, which exceeded all expectations.

In this regard, Hennessy emphasized that the current time is right for startups in “Silicon Valley” to benefit from hiring talent laid off from giant technology companies.

“One of the great things about Silicon Valley is that you can’t rest on your laurels because some new startup will come along that will give you the opportunity to explore new areas for growth,” he said.
