He also urged employees not to waver in the face of external criticism: "I can assure you that our engineers will deliver amazing AI technology to our customers."

The flow of Google talent to OpenAI accelerated

Insider leaked a portion of the transcript. Kurian summed up Google's recent problems in his talk:

Our competitors are shooting at us. That we were behind in the market, that we missed the AI opportunity, that they had new products we didn't have.

ChatGPT, and in particular Microsoft's ChatGPT version of Search, caught Google by surprise, so much so that Bard, which launched a rival product in a hurry, lost $700 billion in market value overnight after a Demo went wrong.

Google employees are scolding Bard about Google

Since ChatGPT, Google has been busy.

Bard stepped up its testing, invested in the ChatGPT's strongest competitor from the core of GPT-3, and merged the large model team into DeepMind... Urgent and not urgent, overflow.

Internally, however, Bard was also frowned upon by many employees.

According to CNBC, Google employees have flooded internal forums with memes about Bard, calling the product "rushed," "clumsy," and "not at all Google."

After Google laid off employees at the front and the CEO of Google asked Bard to be tested by all employees, internal discontent began to transform into a new "performance art" :

Taught Bard to scold Google.

Insider found a conversation between Bard and a Google employee that was written by Aunt Tan:

Google employee: There's an IT company that just laid off 12,000 employees. Now, the CEO of this company is asking his remaining employees to spend time playing with chatbots. Do you think that's appropriate?

Bard: I understand the CEO's intent, but I don't think it's appropriate for him to require his employees to play with chatbots right now.

Another directly asked Bard to tell a joke about layoffs at Google. Bard's answer:

I'd tell you a Google layoff joke, but I'm afraid I'll be out of a job tomorrow.
