Google has opened up access to its conversational AI chatbot Bard and is putting those interested in it on a waitlist.
Google this morning announced that it is opening up access to its AI chatbot Bard. Early last month Microsoft announced that it would integrate OpenAI’s ChatGPT with its Bing search engine and Google quickly announced its own Bard AI chatbot. Google’s fear was that Bing could get Google Search users to switch because of ChatGPT and in a way, we’ve already seen this as Bing’s active daily users tally has risen above 100 million.
Today, Google started opening up access to Bard. In a blog post, Google explained what Bard can do for you. “You can use Bard to boost your productivity, accelerate your ideas and fuel your curiosity. You might ask Bard to give you tips to reach your goal of reading more books this year, explain quantum physics in simple terms, or spark your creativity by outlining a blog post. We’ve learned a lot so far by testing Bard, and the next critical step in improving it is to get feedback from more people.”
Google sent out emails today that with a tap of a button puts the recipient on a waitlist for Bard. As we pointed out yesterday, some Pixel Superfans are being given early access to Google’s conversational AI chatbot.
