Google has announced that it is opening up access to Bard, its AI-powered chatbot, to users in the US and UK. Bard is designed to compete with similar services from Microsoft and OpenAI, and Google says that it is still an experiment. Users can join a waitlist to try out Bard, which offers suggestions such as “draft a packing list for a camping trip” or “how to get started writing a novel.” However, Google has warned that the AI chatbot may display inaccurate or offensive information that doesn’t reflect the company’s values. The rise of AI-powered tools has led to concerns about issues such as trustworthiness, and Google has emphasized its commitment to developing technology responsibly. The company says that it will expand access to Bard to more countries and languages over time. As AI technologies continue to advance, it will be interesting to see how they are used and how they impact society.
