Google recently showcased their chat GPT competitor BARD but that product has failed to impress the tech world and yes why because of the wrong answers 
Alphabet’s Chairman John Hennessy has acknowledged that  BARD has these shortcomings and he said that Google is hesitant to Showcase bard because it wasn’t yet ready as a product so.

During a talk at the TechSurge nerd conference, John Hennessy — the chairman of Google parent company Alphabet — let slip a very interesting tidbit about Bard, the tech giant’s newly-released competitor to OpenAI’s wildly successful and hotly-debated ChatGPT.

“I think Google was hesitant to productize this because it didn’t think it was really ready for a product yet,” Hennessy said, per CNBC, “but, I think, as a demonstration vehicle, it’s a great piece of technology.”

Hennessy also is saying that these models are still in early days and that the industry is struggling with the issue of sensitivity of answers and their correctness.

So what is the hype all about?

Will these tools ever be a replacement for human intelligence or is it just going to be a tool, a worthy Aid if you will?
