  • Notable Inconsistencies in Responses
  • Limited Generative Capabilities
  • Chat GPT has become popular for its extensive generative capabilities. This is especially true for the paid Chat GPT Plus version which uses the GPT-4 language model. Bard has creative capabilities but it has limitations that also restrict its generative capabilities. It would have a hard time writing long-form articles, producing lengthy works of fiction, generating detailed graphs, and producing longer codes because it remains under development.
