On Tuesday, Google said that it is opening up access to Bard, the company’s own AI-powered chatbot to rival services that are released by both Microsoft and OpenAI. The company is now kicking things off with a limited number of people in the UK and the US.

“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’s Sissie Hsiao and Eli Colins in a blog post said.

Google Announced Bard Last Month

Google last month announced Bard after the firm reportedly went into “code red” following the release of OpenAI’s ChatGPT in the latter part of last year. ChatGPT captured attention and imagination with its ability to give humanlike answers to just about any type of question, from writing oddly specific poems to even producing convincing cover letters for social media managers.

ChatGPT Was Estimated To Have Reached 100 Million Active Users by January

ChatGPT by January was estimated to have reached 100 million active users, thus making it the fastest-growing web platform ever. That however led to a rush of firms introducing their very own AI products, and this is including Microsoft’s new Bing search and a “copilot” tool in Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, as well as AI features for Google’s Workspace tools and his is including Gmail and Docs.

Google Called Out After Misinformation by Its AI Chatbot

And just after it unveiled Bard, Google got called out when the AI chatbot served up inaccurate information in regards to the James Webb Space Telescope during a demonstration that was meant to show off the abilities of the tool. Google on Tuesday stressed that Bard is still an experiment and then noted that the AI tool will not “always get things right.”

Other Companies to Roll Out Services Integrated With AI

And just as Google, Microsoft, and others from DuckDuckGo to Adobe to Grammarly have recently rolled out new tools and services integrated with artificial intelligence, the rush has highlighted concerns about problems like trustworthiness. The mass interest in the tool has also led to grand speculation about our AI future and the potential for misunderstanding.

Google to Expand Its Access to Bard to Many More Countries and Languages

On Tuesday, Google said that it will expand its access to Bard to many more countries and languages over time. People interested in trying out Bard can now join the waitlist.
