💥 Google's AI chatbot Bard now available for everyone! No more waitlists and loads of new features added! 💻🤖

May 10 2023 | AI News
Google is expanding its AI chatbot Bard with new features, including the ability to support Japanese and Korean languages, visual search, and a dark mode. The chatbot is now also available in English across 180 countries without a waitlist. Future features include AI image generation from Adobe, and integration with third-party web services like Instacart and OpenTable. Google emphasizes that Bard remains an experimental chatbot and not a replacement for its search engine.

What does it mean?

  • AI chatbot - A computer program designed to simulate conversation with human users, using artificial intelligence technology.
  • Dark mode - A display setting that reduces the light emitted by the screen, making the interface appear darker and easier on the eyes in low-light conditions.
  • AI image generation - A technology that uses artificial intelligence to generate new images. In this case, the AI will be integrated with Adobe software.
  • Third-party web services - Web-based platforms and applications developed by companies other than Google (in this case), which can be integrated with Google's chatbot. Examples could include Instacart, for grocery delivery, and OpenTable, for booking restaurant reservations.
