This article will compare ChatGPT to Google Gemini (which was formerly Google Bard until it changed its name in February 2024). We will consider facts such as who owns each chatbot, what technology the chatbot is based on, and the chatbot creators, and also statistical data such as revenue forecasts for each chatbot, and how many users there are on each platform.

What Is an AI Chatbot?

An AI chatbot is an artificial intelligence program designed to simulate conversation with human users through text or voice interactions. Google Gemini and ChatGPT are examples of AI chatbots that use natural language processing to understand the user’s queries and provide relevant responses.

Such chatbots can perform a range of functions, from answering frequently asked questions to providing customer support, making appointments, and even entertaining users. Programmers often train them on large datasets to improve their accuracy in understanding and responding to user input. As a result, they are increasingly being used across a range of industries, including healthcare, e-commerce, finance, and education, to provide efficient and personalized services to customers.

Thus, the global chatbot market value is huge. Reports suggest that the worldwide chatbot market size has grown from $2.25 billion in 2021 1, to a huge $6.92 billion in 2023 2.

The above table illustrates how Google Gemini compares to ChatGPT. We can see that ChatGPT has 14.3 million estimated daily users 3. Since launching to the general public, Google’s Gemini AI has amassed 4.62 million daily users 4.

Given the number of potential users Gemini could reach, it is impossible to estimate revenue, but given that 1 billion reach potential, revenue could be astronomical.

ChatGPT Number of Users and Statistics

Looking individually at each chatbot, first we will consider ChatGPT.

What Is ChatGPT?

ChatGPT is a language model AI chatbot created by OpenAI. Programmers have trained it to generate human-like responses to text-based inputs, making it useful for a variety of applications, such as customer service, language translation, and conversing with users. ChatGPT can understand natural language and uses its knowledge base to provide accurate and relevant responses to user queries.

How Many Users Does ChatGPT Have?

Current estimates suggest that ChatGPT has in the region of 14.3 million daily users. The same reports state that ChatGPT had over 100 million visitors 3 within its first two months following launch. Open Ai CEO Sam Altman posted on Twitter that Chat GPT had 1 million users within five days of launch 5.

What Model Is ChatGPT Technology Based Upon?

ChatGPT is based upon the GPT-4 model, which is an improvement on the previous model in terms of producing responses based on an instruction or set of instructions. OpenAI updated the GPT model to GPT-4 in March 2023.

Who Owns ChatGPT?

ChatGPT is a chatbot developed and owned by OpenAI, and was the recipient of a $10 billion investment from computer giant Microsoft who will also now own a stake in the chatbot 6.

Where Is ChatGPT Based?

The ChatGPT Headquarters is based in San Francisco.

Who Are the Creators of ChatGPT?

OpenAI, co-founded by Greg Brockman, Ilya Sutskever, and Wojciech Zaremba created ChatGPT. The CEOs are Sam Altman and Brad Lightcap, and a team of programmers modelled the chatbot. Note that on November 18th 2023, Sam Altman was fired as CEO of ChatGPT, only to be reinstated again as CEO by the non-profit organisation. The company has also instated a new board in the process 7.

What Is the Current Financial Forecast/Revenue for ChatGPT?

According to reports, ChatGPT is estimated to receive revenue in the region of $200 million in 2023 8.

What Is the Purpose of ChatGPT?

The purpose of ChatGPT is to provide a highly advanced chatbot AI that can communicate in a human-like manner with users. With ChatGPT, users can engage in conversations with a chatbot that feels like they are talking to a real person. However, given Microsoft’s investment in ChatGPT, it will incorporate into Bing search at some point in the near future, with 71% of those who tested Bing’s AI search giving it positive praise 9.

Google Gemini Number of Users and Statistics

We will now take a look at the facts and figures relating to Google’s Gemini.

What Is Gemini?

Much like ChatGPT, Gemini is a language model AI chatbot, although this one is created by Google. Google has launched Gemini into the hands of the public as of 2023. It works in the same way as ChatGPT, with programmers training it to respond in a similar way to a human being.

Note that Gemini was previously Google Bard, but on February 8th 2024, a Google Blog announcement stated that it was changing to Gemini 14.

How Many Users Does Gemini Have?

As of November 30, 2023, Gemini has an estimated 4.62 million daily users 4. Given that Gemini only launched in Q2 of 2023, this is a substantial number of users, and one that is likely to increase as we head through 2024 and Google makes updates to its AI model.

What Model Is Gemini Based Upon?

Gemini is based on LaMDA, or the Language Model for Dialogue Applications 10. Google developed this model in order that it can integrate with Google’s search tools. Its programmers trained LaMDA using 1.56 TRILLION words in total 11.

Who Owns Gemini?

Google owns Gemini, which was previously known as Google Bard.

Where is Gemini Based?

Gemini HQ is based in California.

Who Are the Creators of Gemini

Google Bard’s creators are Google staff, but the names of those heavily involved in the training of the AI chatbot are not currently public knowledge. However, the Alphabet CEO Sundar Pichai has been the most vocal about Google’s AI chatbot; unsurprising as Alphabet is the key stakeholder in Google’s services.

What Is the Current Financial Forecast/Revenue for Gemini?

Google keeps revenue estimates close to its chest, so no official figures exist. But, with the potential to reach 1 billion users on launch (Google has way more than 1 billion active users), the potential revenue could be huge.

What is the Purpose of Gemini?

The purpose of Gemini is to provide natural sounding chatbot communication with humans, like ChatGPT, the main crux of Gemini is to integrate with Google Search (competing with ChatGPT and Microsoft’s Bing search engine), to provide accurate search results when responding to human instruction and requests.

What Other AI Chatbots Are There?

There are plenty of other AI chatbots you can access already, but the major contender is META, which owns Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp. It is developing its own chatbot AI, dubbed Galactica. Note, though, that META removed Galactica from public use as quickly as it arrived, because it was delivering incorrect data in its answers to users 12.

Other notable competitors include Anthropic’s chatbot AI—Claude—which Google invested in prior to the creation of its own Gemini. Deepmind has also developed a chatbot called Sparrow, and Microsoft, despite investing in OpenAI, has its own large language model, Megatron 13.

Future for Chatbot AI Technology as Disrupter

The future of chatbot AI as a disruptor looks very promising. As natural language processing technology continues to advance, chatbots are becoming more human-like and able to handle more complex tasks. With their ability to automate customer service, sales, and other business processes, chatbots have the significant potential to disrupt traditional ways of doing business, and completely reshape entire industries in the process.
