Google Bard Gives ChatGPT A Run For Money With New Features

by Business Watch Team

Google has announced new updates to Bard, its AI-powered language model. The latest advancements empower users worldwide to harness the power of cutting-edge AI for boundless creativity and enhanced accessibility. Starting today, users can generate images in Bard in most countries, and use Gemini Pro in any language, country, and territory Bard currently supports.

Previously available in English, Gemini Pro, the powerful language model powering Bard, now supports over 40 languages and is accessible in more than 230 countries and territories. This expansion allows users around the globe to leverage Bard’s advanced capabilities for tasks like enhanced understanding and reasoning, improved summarization, and streamlined coding.

The Large Model Systems Organization, a leading evaluator of language models and chatbots across languages, recently shared that Bard with Gemini Pro is one of the most preferred chatbots available (with or without cost), noting that it has made a “stunning leap” forward. And blind evaluations with our third-party raters identified Bard with Gemini Pro as one of the top-performing chatbots, compared to leading free and paid alternatives.

Building on its existing success, Bard’s double-check feature, which is already used by millions of people in English, expands to over 40 languages. This tool empowers users to verify the accuracy of Bard’s responses by referencing supporting information from the web, fostering trust and transparency. When users click on the “G” icon, Bard will evaluate whether there is content across the web to substantiate its response. If it can be evaluated, users can click the highlighted phrases and learn more about supporting or contradicting information found by Search.

For an extra creative boost, Bard now offers image generation in English for most countries around the world and at no cost. This new capability is powered by our updated Imagen 2 model, which is designed to balance quality and speed, delivering high-quality, photorealistic outputs. Just type in a description — like “create an image of a dog riding a surfboard” — and Bard will generate custom, wide-ranging visuals to help bring your idea to life.

Consistent with Google’s AI Principles, image generation has been designed with responsibility in mind. For instance, to ensure there’s a clear distinction between visuals created with Bard and original human artwork, Bard uses SynthID to embed digitally identifiable watermarks into the pixels of generated images.

Google’s technical guardrails and investments in the safety of training data seek to limit violent, offensive, or sexually explicit content. Additionally, Google applies filters designed to avoid the generation of images of named people.

These updates make Bard an even more helpful and globally accessible AI collaborator for everything from big, creative projects to smaller, everyday tasks. Try it out today at
