Google has released a chatbot with artificial intelligence named Bard.
On Google’s blog, Google CEO Sundar Pichai described Bard as an experimental conversational AI service that uses Language Model for Dialogue Applications (LaMDA).
Before becoming more broadly accessible to the general public in the upcoming weeks, Pichai said Bard will be accessible to “trusted testers.”
Bard, according to Pichai, seeks to combine the breadth of the world’s knowledge with the power, intelligence and creativity of our large language models. It draws on information from the web to provide fresh, high-quality responses.
“Bard can be an outlet for creativity, and a launchpad for curiosity, helping you to explain new discoveries from NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope to a 9-year-old or learn more about the best strikers in football right 1now, and then get drills to build your skills.
“Soon, you’ll see AI-powered features in Search that distil complex information and multiple perspectives into easy-to-digest formats, so you can quickly understand the big picture and learn more from the web: whether that’s seeking out additional perspectives, like blogs from people who play both piano and guitar, or going deeper on a related topic, like steps to get started as a beginner,” Pichai said.
However, the company said they’ll combine external feedback with our own internal testing to make sure Bard’s responses meet a high bar for quality, safety and groundedness in real-world information,” the company said.
