Google Employees of the technology company said that CEO Sundar Pichai is ridiculed for Rushing Bard’s AI Chatbot Announcement.
Messages float on an internal message forum
Recently, Some Google employees are upset with the way the company has announced its AI chatbot Bard as a competition of ChatGPT.
CEO Pichai made the announcement through a blog post. The company announced the introduction of Bard, a language model for dialogue applications. The company said Bard would draw on information from the web and give high-quality responses.
During a demonstration posted by Google, Bard gave an incorrect answer, which could spark some debate on the chatbot’s accuracy.
In posts on Google’s internal forum “Memegen,” workers described the troubled launch as “rushed,” “botched,” and “un-Googley,” reports CNBC.
They are being comically short-sighted and un-Googlely in their pursuit of ‘sharpening focus,’ goes another post.
