Google will launch its Artificial Intelligence chatbot Bard in over 180 countries simultaneously. The company first presented this tool in February. After several months of testing, they want to take it to the next level. So, it has just been announced by the company at its annual developer conference, Google I/O 2023. Sundar Pichai, CEO of Google and Alphabet, said, "he wants to make artificial intelligence a helpful tool for everyone."
The novelty that Bard brings is its global availability, so they no longer have the waiting list. After a trial period in the United States and the United Kingdom, it will be available in English in 180 different countries, as well as in Japanese and Korean. The technology company plans to launch it in 40 other languages shortly. Google aims to launch a series of AI functions to improve the experience when making queries. Among them is the possibility of integrating it into applications such as Docs, Drive, or Gmail.
Google is making Bard more visual, both in its answers and in its prompts. The company intends for the AI to not only display text answers but also provide an image to give a better idea of the search being performed. For example, if a user asks questions such as "What places to visit in New York" in addition to the text, it will show images of the area or landmarks in the city.
They will also allow you to include images, along with the text, with your directions. To make this happen, they will use the power of Google Lens directly to Bard. This way, the user can ask for a picture of two dogs to create "a funny description about these two." Using Google Lens, Bard will analyze the photo, detect the breeds of the dogs and write some creative captions.
For Google, feedback is key to improving this project. As part of that effort, from Google, they are incorporating developer feedback into some key coding updates:
Source citations: Starting next week, quotes will be even more accurate. If Bard brings up a block of code or quotes other content, simply click on the annotation, and Bard will underline those parts of the response and link to the source.
Dark Theme: This will help make interacting with Bard easier on the eyes.
"Export" button: This will add the ability to export and run code with its partner Replit, starting with Python.
