Now that Chat GPT has risen in popularity, other companies are starting to develop their own chatbots built on artificial intelligence. There are already some scale-up initiatives like ChatSonic, Jasper AI, Open Assistant and Wordtune, but Google is currently offering the biggest opposition with its newest AI-chatbot called Bard.
