Google opens chatbot Bard for testing in US and UK


In an effort to catch up to Microsoft-backed ChatGPT, Google on Tuesday extended an invitation to residents of the United States and the United Kingdom to test out its AI chatbot, Bard.

Bard, ChatGPT, and other similar apps generate essays, poetry, or computer code at the user’s request, albeit they come with disclaimers that the content they produce might be inaccurate or offensive.

A waiting list is available at the website, which is distinct from the search engine operated by the Internet giant.

The action, according to Google CEO Sundar Pichai, is a “early experiment” that enables individuals to work with generative artificial intelligence (AI).

“Through testing Bard so far, we’ve learnt a lot, and the next crucial step in making it better is to make it more responsive”, Google replied.
