Google’s DeepMind promises ChatGPT rival soon – and it could be better in one key way

Google subsidiary DeepMind says it could launch a ChatGPT rival soon – and its chatbot promises to be a safer kind of AI assistant.

DeepMind has been a pioneer in AI research for the last decade and was acquired by Google nine years ago. However, with ChatGPT stealing the recent headlines, DeepMind CEO Demis Hassabis told Time (opens in new tab) that it’s considering releasing its own chatbot,  called Sparrow, for a “private beta” sometime in 2023.
