1/ How to use Bard with Wolfram Alpha:

If you’ve not heard of Bard to date, you haven’t missed out on much. The only edge it’s had over ChatGPT is that it’s connected to the internet. That said, I would have always recommended you use Bing Chat instead (as it uses ChatGPT in the background)

Either way, there was some exciting news this week as Google have announced plugins for Bard.

So, very simply, you can ask Bard what it integrates with, so yesterday, I asked it whether it worked with Wolfram Alpha.

I was keen to see how this would work, as ChatGPT can be poor when it comes to complex calculations and accuracy of numbers.

I got this response.

You’ll also see I asked it to give me 3 prompts for how to use it with Wolfram Alpha. It have some great examples.


Today when I asked it the same question:

So, I don’t know whether it was a premature accidental release, or whether it’s just a bug today.

Either way, hopefully, in the coming days, and weeks, you should be able to use Bard with integrations like Wolfram Alpha.

2/ Updates

We were lucky enough to have 3 previous podcast guests on the Tech for Finance podcast recently. We talked about everything from speed to change, to how people can start adopting AI without becoming overwhelmed. A must listen for anyone interested to hear from a panel of industry experts.
