ChatGPT 3.5 vs Bard — LLVM

      No Comments on ChatGPT 3.5 vs Bard — LLVM

I asked Bard "Explain LLVM".

Bard said (in part)

Imagine you have a program written in Python, but you want it to run on a device that only understands C instructions. LLVM can help you build a bridge! It provides the front-end tools to convert your Python code into an intermediate representation (IR) that’s like a universal language for compilers.

Then, LLVM’s back-end tools can take that IR and translate it into specific C instructions for your target device. This flexibility lets you write code in one language and run it on many different platforms.

LLVM back-end does not translate IR to C instructions.
I asked ChatGPT 3.5 and it answered correctly.
I fed Bard’s answer to ChatGPT 3.5 and asked if this is correct.

ChatGPT 3.5 replied (in part):

However, the back-end tools of LLVM don’t necessarily translate LLVM IR directly into C instructions. Instead, the back-end is responsible for taking LLVM IR and generating machine code specific to the target architecture. This machine code may be in the form of assembly code or object code, depending on the target platform.

ChatGPT 3.5 wins this round. Not impressed with Bard as this is not a difficult question.
