Google Launches Advanced AI Chatbot Bard With Interesting Features in 180 Countries

Tech Giant Google has launched its advanced AI chatbot, Bard, with new interesting features, which are now available in 180 countries. The chatbot is also available in Japanese and Korean languages, as Google plans to roll out 40 new languages soon.

Vice President and General Manager for Google Assistant and Bard Sissie Hsiao during the launch disclosed that several updates available on Bard will be in line with and in some cases surpass ChatGPT and Microsoft’s Bing AI Chat. The new search experience would be akin to a search that is supercharged by a conversational bot.

Google also announced browser extensions that will imbue apps and services such as Gmail and Maps with AI features. Bard technology will enable features such as filling in a text to help draft emails and suggesting ideas for an artwork by scrutinizing a picture of available supplies. Google is also letting partners build such extensions, including one from Adobe that will let users generate images.

Google’s Bard was launched with a large language model PaLM 2, which the tech giant describes as a far more capable large language model. This will aid Bard to improve its various generative AI capabilities, as well as its code translation capabilities.

On the UI front, Google introduced a dark mode version to Bard which according to the company was a top-requested feature. Bard has also been improved to help users in coding. When it comes to logical reasoning and coding capabilities, Microsoft’s Bing AI has so far led the change, however, the new Bard features showcased at Google I/O may see it overtake its rival on this front.

Google is ramping up its core search business with a heavy dose of artificial intelligence. The tech stalwart announced at its I/O conference that it is adding generative AI features that will give users more information and context during web searches. The features, called Search Generative Experience, will initially be available for testing by Google Labs users and are separate from its chatbot, Bard. Google also announced its first foldable smartphone, the $1,799 Pixel Fold, which is expected to challenge the similarly priced Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4.Bard will also get new features and become available for everyone — no waitlist required — as it transitions to Googles new large language model, PaLM 2.

The Chatbot can now create functions in more than 20 programming languages and add comments so the code can be explained to collaborators, regardless of where they are. In previous iterations, Bard was already able to export Python code to Google’s Colab. However, the company is now expanding this feature to allow exports of Python code to Replit, the popular browser-based IDE, as well. This will make it even easier for developers to use Bard to generate code and immediately test it.

Also, Bard can now work with Google Maps to show users locations, restaurants and attractions on a map to visualize where the places are. Soon, Bard will add support for visual content in both responses and questions. The chatbot will be leveraging Google lens technology to analyze pictures, and it will be capable of creating intelligent captions for pictures. It will also soon provide more precise citations when it uses content from other sources.
