Google on Tuesday stated that it’s opening up access to Bard, the Google’s very own AI-powered chatbot that’s a rival to services released by competitor Microsoft and it’s OpenAI. Google is starting with users in the US and UK, who can go to the Bard site to sign up for the waiting list.
“We’ve learned a lot so far by testing Bard, and the next critical step in improving it is to get feedback from more people,” stated Google’s Sissie Hsiao and Eli Collins.
Google has announced Bard and the company went into “code red” following the release of the OpenAI’s ChatGPT late last year to garner it’s own AI Chat. ChatGPT captured users imaginations with its ability to give humanlike answers and gestures to just about any questions user asked it, from writing oddly specific poems to producing convincing intricate cover letters for social media users.
By January 2023, ChatGPT was estimated to have over 100 million active users, toting it to be the fastest-growing web platform ever. That led to a rush of companies introducing their own AI products
After the unveiling of Bard, Google has been called out when the AI chatbot posted inaccurate info regarding the James Webb Space Telescope and it was during a demonstration meant to show off the tool’s abilities.
Tuesday, Google AI Team had stressed that Bard is still an experiment and noted that the AI tool won’t “always get things right.” AI is the Future…and our team wants to be at the forefront of the AI revolution.
