The competition for leadership in the field of AI has generated an intense battle between various companies. Each of them seeks to position itself as the main benchmark in this constantly evolving technology.
AI programs like ChatGPT, Bard, and Bing Chat are constantly evolving. Each of these tools seeks to improve their ability to understand and generate natural language, adapting to the needs, as well as the demands of the users.
However, so far, it is not clear which of all the chatbot alternatives currently on the market is the best option, and which of them will be the ones that will dominate the segment.
Many entrepreneurs have given their opinion on artificial intelligence, and one of the most prominent has been Bill Gates. The Microsoft co-founder has been optimistic about the potential of AI, even declaring that virtual assistants are the ones that are going to revolutionize the Internet.
The American tycoon has taken an enthusiastic position where he affirms that the great winner of the technological war of AI will be the one who designs a virtual assistant.
An environment where users will bypass search engines like Google to find relevant information and instead talk to AI-powered digital assistants to perform specific tasks.
Bill Gates said that there is a chance that the winner will come from start-ups or tech giants.although he stated that he would be disappointed if Microsoft does not compete in this race.
However, Gates confirmed that one of the startups with the potential to be a benchmark in this AI battle is Inflection. A company co-founded by former DeppMind executive Mustafa Suleyman, Reid Hoffman, co-founder of LinkedIn; and Karen Simonyan.
This company hasn’t gotten much attention for not having a big name in the tech world, but it has been revealed to have an advanced artificial intelligence tool called Pi.
Pi, a chatbot that has the potential to compete with ChatGPT
Pi is one of many AI tools that want to compete with OpenAI and its ChatGPT conversational AI technology. However, this platform has potential and works very differently from any chatbot we currently know.
Inflection has developed Pi with the aim of having a relaxed conversation. Users can talk to the chatbot directly through an instant messaging app, such as WhatsApp. But one of its differences is that it usually ends its sentences with a question for the user.
According to Mustafa Suleyman, CEO of Inflection AI, he assures that this tool has certain limitations in its abilities, but that does not mean it has less potential than its competitors.
Not able to create lists, schedule, plan trips or do school work, is meant to converse more closely with peopleas a personal companion without emotions, but providing advice, and not as a tool for productivity.
Pi is a valuable resource for those looking for support at a time when they don’t have someone available to talk to. Their conversations allow people to understand their emotions, as well as their feelings in a meaningful way..
This new chatbot uses advanced technology of large linguistic models (LLM) for its operation. He has been extensively trained to generate textual responses by analyzing vast amounts of information available on the Internet.
This way, Pi can provide answers based on extensive knowledge and understanding of various topics.. An important point to mention is that the AI tool has been trained with data updated to November 2022, in addition, it avoids the use of details that could identify a person.
Pi is an AI that will play an important role in emotions
At the moment, the chatbot is available for free on web browsers and mobile devices. After 10 interactions, users are asked to provide their phone number for feedback.
Users have the vast freedom to interact with the Pi through popular applications such as Instagram, Facebook, Messenger, WhatsApp and even SMS, this is a plus that neither ChatGPT nor Google’s Bard can offer so far.
Like other alternative chatbots to ChatGPT, Pi can provide inaccurate information, but in response to this, Inflection has highlighted its commitment to minimizing potential inaccuracies.so they are developing an innovative boundary training approach that redefines AI learning.
As time progresses, new proposals continue to appear seeking to compete with ChatGPT and its capabilities. There are hundreds of alternatives, such as Bard, Bing Chat, Conversa, AI Chat or XBot, but Pi is the one that gives a differentiating point by trying to be more emotional.
As a last resort, the “king” of artificial intelligence is not limited to a single entity, as the field continues to evolve and new players emerge. Furthermore, the impact of AI spans across various industries and sectors, which means that multiple companies, both emerging and established, can lead in different domains.
