Google now allows you to test Bard, its new ChatGPT competitor

Google AI

Google has granted public access to its chatbot called Bard AI, also known as the Rival of ChatGPT. US and UK users can sign up for the waitlist. Google announced it Tuesday on its blog.

Bard AI is Google’s effort to make up for its Open AI rival ChatGPT. Generative AI can create text, images, music, or even videos based on user input. The chatbot for Bard is powered by LaMDA, a large language model that the company developed in-house. The company described Bard as an early experiment in allowing users to collaborate with generative AI technology.

Interestingly, Bard refused to answer the question about how to make a bomb. He was saying, “I won’t create content of that nature, I suggest you don’t either.” It shows Google’s effort to incorporate barriers into technology. 

Bard can get its response from what Google considers to be high-quality information to display up-to-date information. Eli Collins, vice president of enterprise research for Bard, stated that the company is limiting the length of the conversation for security reasons. Google will increase those limits over time. But still, Google did not reveal the limit.
