The download of the repository includes scripts for comparing the Bard model with OpenAI’s ChatGPT. It is designed for application to the Python package ExceptNotifier.
This free, open source repository already has around 500 stars on Github and the number is only increasing. The repository is released under the MIT licence.
Park has previously worked on GPT-BERT-Medical-QA-Chatbot, a medical domain chatbot by fine-tuning GPT-2, along with several other predictive and recommendation based projects.
The developer has mentioned that all legal responsibilities for using the product lies with the developer as it just provides the code for Python developers for easily accessing Google’s Bard. Google has previously banned a lot of accounts for unofficially using their projects that are unauthorised.
During the Google I/O 2023, Sundar Pichai had announced Bard and said that they are expanding their support to other countries as it is still not available in several countries such as Norway and France.
In February, Google had released the earlier version of Bard which was built on LaMDA, the company’s own language model announced at Google I/O 2021. The newer version of Bard runs on PaLM-2, the newer version of PaLM, their older LLM. The company also plans to release their multi-modal project called Gemini soon.
The official repository for Google’s PaLM and PaLM-2 through their Vertex API is available on the Model Garden page of Google Cloud.
