Bard, Google's answer to OpenAI's ChatGPT, has now become widely available to the public. In certain respects, Bard has managed to one-up ChatGPT. For instance, it can directly access the internet for real-time information. A feature that ChatGPT requires a browser plugin for.

However, regarding logical reasoning, Bard lags behind GPT-4. And it seems to present inaccurate information more often than GPT-4. As with any large language model (LLM), it's crucial not to take the information it provides at face value. Always verify facts independently for accuracy.
