In a world where artificial intelligence (AI) is increasingly present, chatbots are developing rapidly. ChatGPT, developed by OpenAI, has been widely adopted thanks to its ability to generate contextually relevant and consistent responses in a variety of situations. However, there are now several competitors looking to rival this popular platform. In this article, we’ll explore some of these newcomers, as well as the platforms that make comparison and choice easier.
ChatHub: centralize and compare chatbots
ChatHub is a free extension for Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge that lets you use several chatbots simultaneously and compare their results. You’ll need to log in to each of your accounts before you can use ChatHub properly. Users with a paid OpenAI account will also benefit from GPT-4 through this platform.
ChatHub makes it possible to centralize several chat bots in one place. Indeed, ChatGPT, Bing, Bard, Claude, iFlytek Spark, ChatGLM, Alpaca and Vicuna are the eight bots already supported by this extension, which allows…
- Manage multiple chatbots from a single interface,
- Compare their performance,
- Experiment with different models to find the right chatbot for your needs.
Meta announces LLaMA, a ChatGPT competitor
In February 2023, Meta, Facebook’s parent company, announced the release of a strange animal called LLaMA. Like GPT-3, one of the bricks on which ChatGPT is built, this program is a language model. This newcomer could potentially rival ChatGPT in terms of generative artificial intelligence.
Intel and Aurora genAI: a generative AI model with 1 trillion parameters
Intel takes on ChatGPT with its Aurora genAI generative AI model for science, up to a trillion parameters. In addition to today’s announcement of the Aurora Supercomputer, Intel has also announced its Aurora genAI. The 2 Exaflops Aurora Supercomputer is an incredible machine, and this system will be used to power the Aurora genAI AI model.
Announced during the ISC23 keynote speech, the Aurora genAI model will be trained on…
- Medical records,
- Climatic data,
- Energy research and other scientific applications.
This processing power could position Aurora genAI as a serious competitor to ChatGPT.
Anthropic raises $450 million to develop its own generative AI
Anthropic, a start-up founded in 2021 by former OpenAI researchers, has announced that it has raised $450 million in a Series C funding round led by Spark Capital. Investors include Google, Salesforce and Zoom, alongside Sound Ventures, Menlo Ventures and others.
This massive investment underlines the market’s enthusiasm for generative AI solutions, and could enable Anthropic to develop a product to rival ChatGPT.
While ChatGPT continues to dominate the conversational chatbot market, it’s clear that competition is heating up. Companies such as Meta, Intel and Anthropic are looking to develop their own generative AI solutions, while platforms like ChatHub make it easier to compare and choose between different chatbots. It will be interesting to see how these players evolve and innovate in the competitive landscape of AI-based chatbots.
