    These are the 6 alternatives to ChatGPT: Microsoft’s commitment to OpenAI competes against giants such as Google or the Chinese technology Baidu

    Open AI has been building buzz with its artificial intelligence (AI) technology tools for quite some time, but it wasn’t until the public launch of ChatGPT at the end of last November when the thing blew up.

    the company was founded in 2015 by Sam Altman, its current CEO, and by Elon Musk himself, already disassociated from the project. Since then, OpenAI has lost the status of non-profit organization with which it was founded and has been financially promoted by giants such as Microsoftwhich has been investing in it since 2019 and has announced a new investment.

    The company has been attracting more and more attention until last year 2 of its artificial intelligence technologies captured the interest of both the public and the media: Dall-E and ChatGPT.

    Dall-E is an artificial intelligence image generator that throughout 2022 was gaining relevance due to how incredible its results were. The OpenAI tool was capable of generating tables that were indistinguishable from original works Gustav Klimt or Johannes Vermeer.

    For its part, ChatGPT is a tool based on a text generation model that has been running for some time (and in fact has been a contributor to this same medium), but it had not gained the fame it has today until On November 30, OpenAI launched a public version of the program.

    ChatGPT is not only good for programming: it corrects code errors better than programs designed for it

    ChatGPT, an artificial intelligence chat bot, has gone viral in the last two weeks.ChatGPT, an artificial intelligence chat bot, has gone viral in the last two weeks.

    At that time, the CEO of this company, Sam Altman, came to recognize that ChatGPT was receiving much more traffic than they expected at first and that they were working to find a way in which they could add more capacity to the text generator.

    Since then, ChatGPT has undergone a veritable explosion of popularity that has led it to position itself as a technology with the capacity to revolutionize countless sectors: from education to medicine, through the legal profession or the development of web pages.

    The repercussion that this text writing tool has had has been such that it was a matter of time before competitors appeared. Here you can see the top alternatives to ChatGPTsome of them based on OpenAI’s own technology, the GPT-3 computational language model.

    Perplexity AI

    Perplexity AI is based on the application programming interface (API) of OpenAI itself and, therefore, its operation consists of the extraction of information from different sources and the writing of a coherent text according to the question or the phrase that the user has written.

    It stands out for being one of the few artificial intelligence text generators that is completely free and that does not even require the creation of a user account. In addition, Perplexity AI has a minimalist interface in which the user can identify where each piece of information provided by the tool comes from.



    Bard – bardo in English – is the name that has finally received Google’s proposal to counterattack OpenAI. A tool with a function similar to ChatGPT that the CEO of the Alphabet subsidiary, Sundar Pichai, has recently revealed.

    According to the statement issued by Pichai in which he announced the Google text generator, it has already been offered to “trusted testers” and is expected to finally see the light of day in the coming weeks. It will be based on LaMDA, a linguistic model that Google already introduced in May 2021, and will offer “fresh and high-quality responses.”

    The success of ChatGPT seemed to have caught Google off guard. So much so that the technology giant came to issue a red code by which the CEO asked all employees to get to work on issues related to artificial intelligence. Bard is one of Google’s proposals, but the company seems to be working on up to 20 AI-powered products.

    Jasper Chat

    Jasper Chat, like Perplexity AI, is built on OpenAI’s own technology, the GPT-3.5 model. In fact, as they point out from augusmanthe company directed by Sam Altman is a partner of Jasper, a firm that is fully dedicated to the generation of creative content by artificial intelligence.

    Jasper claims that his tool has been trained in more than 29 languages with information that was available until mid-2021 and, although it does not produce more recent content, it includes data that appears in Google searches if the user checks that option in the text generator.

    In this case, it is a technology that is especially designed for professionals dedicated to marketing, advertising and communication, since it has a customizable ‘Business’ plan in which more than 5 users can work as a team. However, you can also try a free to use version with limited features.

    ernie bot or Wenxin Yiyan

    “Ernie bot” or “Wenxin Yiyan”, in Chinese, is the name that the Chinese giant’s text generator will receive Baidu. This company is considered one of the pillars of the technology sector in China, a place where it is compared to Google and where it already dominates another expanding market, that of robotaxis.

    This ChatGPT alternative will be based on Ernie, a large-scale machine learning model —similar to the one used by OpenAI— that has been trained for several years with all kinds of databases. According to BloombergBaidu would have invested billions of euros to investigate with the aim of abandoning its current financing model, based on digital marketing.

    The technology company has recently announced that “Ernie bot” could pass its internal exams this month of March, moments before finally launching on the market.


    Chatsonic, Writesonic's tool.Chatsonic, Writesonic's tool.

    Chatsonic has a premise that goes straight to the point: “Like ChatGPT, but with superpowers“.

    Again, this is an alternative to ChatGPT that is built on top of OpenAI’s own architecture, the GPT-3.5 model. However, there is something that differentiates its proposal from that of the company promoted by Microsoft and that is that Chatsonic can access internet.

    The algorithm proposed by Writesonic —the developer behind this tool— can access web pages in order to collect the necessary information to obtain a result that is more suited to the user’s requests. With which, and unlike ChatGPT, Chatsonic always has up-to-date information.

    Away from all these proposals, which are still motivated by private interests that seek to obtain economic profitability from user interactions, is Bloom.

    Bloom is an alternative to open source ChatGPTthis means that it is a group project that, ultimately, does not pursue profitability, but the improvement of society as a whole, betting on transparency as opposed to the opacity that usually characterizes this type of proposal.

    As explained in Analytics Insightit is an application based on Google’s PaLM architecturewhich already has more than 540,000 million parameters and which stands out for being an application RLHF (abbreviations in English of “reinforcement learning with human feedback”).

    Despite the fact that the existence of an alternative like Bloom could be good news for society in general and for users in particular, experts suggest that these projects require a lot of resources to start working, something Bloom suffers from.

    According to these experts, for these technologies to work properly need to generate gigabytes and gigabytes of text from which the model can train and learn. It remains to be seen if citizen collaboration will make this type of initiative go ahead.
