The fifth episode of the ‘AI in Recruitment’ podcast features an in-depth comparison between ChatGPT and its new rival, Google Bard. The episode aims to determine which generative AI tool is more effective in for example creating job advertisements and social posts. The podcast episode is available for listening on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, and other major podcast platforms.
Evolution of ChatGPT
ChatGPT was officially released in November 2022 and swiftly garnered significant user engagement. According to recent statistics, as of summer 2023, ChatGPT enjoys an active user base exceeding 100 million, and its website attracts about 1.6 billion users monthly worldwide.
Google Bard Enters the Market
Jasper Spanjaart, co-host of the episode, introduced Google Bard as the new competitor. Launched initially to select users in the United States and the United Kingdom in February 2023, the service expanded its reach to the European Union by mid-July of the same year. Although the exact user numbers are yet to be disclosed, Google anticipates that the user base will exceed 1 billion by 2025.
Impact on Market Value
Despite high expectations, Google Bard’s debut was not without setbacks. A promotional error related to the James Web Telescope led to Alphabet losing $100 billion in market value. This incident has raised concerns about Alphabet’s competitive standing, particularly against Microsoft.
Comparing Job Ad Creations
To objectively evaluate the two platforms, ‘AI in Recruitment’ issued the same prompts to both Google Bard and ChatGPT for generating job ads. The co-host noted that Google Bard’s output was succinct, focusing on essential information and utilizing a more traditional structure with bullet points. ChatGPT, in contrast, offered detailed advertisements that included comprehensive overviews of the company, job responsibilities, and qualifications.
New Awards for Benelux Suppliers
Recruitment Tech has introduced a new accolade, the AI in Recruitment Award, targeted at Benelux suppliers. This award aims to recognize the most impactful use of AI in recruitment technology. Suppliers have until September 6 to submit their tool or case for consideration.
