Google recently unveiled Bard, a new AI-based conversational tool that employs LaMDA technology (Language Model for Dialogue Applications). This article introduces Bard and its key features.
How Bard works: Bard is designed to merge global knowledge and the creativity of large language models to deliver fresh, high-quality responses. It relies on web-based information to assist users in understanding complex subjects and answering their questions. Bard can act as a platform to spark curiosity and learning, such as explaining NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope’s latest discoveries to a 9-year-old child or learning more about the best soccer forwards of the moment.
Bard for the general public: Google plans to make Bard available to the general public in the coming weeks. For now, the company has granted access to trusted testers to gather feedback and enhance the tool’s response quality and speed.
Integration of Bard into Google products: Bard is one of many AI technologies Google is developing to enhance its products, including Google Search. Users will soon be able to enjoy AI-based features to synthesize complex information and receive answers quickly.
Access to Bard for developers: Google also intends to grant developers, creators, and businesses access to the generative language API, initially fueled by LaMDA. The goal is to provide a suite of tools and APIs to simplify the creation of innovative AI-based applications.
