Google Says You Can Now Try Out Bard, Its ChatGPT Rival in the US and UK.

The search giant rolls out the AI chatbot, starting with people in the US and UK.

Google on Tuesday said it's opening up access to Bard, the search giant's own AI-powered chatbot that's a rival to services released by Microsoft and OpenAI. The company is starting with people in the US and UK, who can go to the Bard site to join a waitlist.

"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," wrote Google's Sissie Hsiao and Eli Collins in a blog post.

Google announced Bard last month after the company reportedly went into "code red" following the release of OpenAI's ChatGPT late last year. ChatGPT captured imaginations with its ability to give humanlike answers to just about any question, from writing oddly specific poems to producing convincing cover letters for social media managers.

By January, ChatGPT was estimated to have reached 100 million active users, making it the fastest-growing web platform ever. That led to a rush of companies introducing their own AI products, 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 including Gmail and Docs.

After it unveiled Bard, Google got called out when the AI chatbot served up inaccurate information about the James Webb Space Telescope during a demonstration meant to show off the tool's abilities. On Tuesday, Google stressed that Bard is still an experiment and noted that the AI tool won't "always get things right."

The tool introduces itself as a "creative and helpful collaborator," and offers suggestions to get started, such as "draft a packing list for a camping trip" or "how to get started writing a novel." In smaller print on the Bard site, Google says the AI chatbot may display "inaccurate or offensive information" that doesn't reflect the search giant's values.

Google is trying it's hand in the current AI bandwagon. Apparently according to the article they botched the demonstration so I'm wondering if the current build is improved or not.

Look I know all these AI will collect my data.
But at least the other ones aren't from a company whose entire business model primarily revolves around selling my data to advertisers.
Tbh I'm somewhat disappointed that Microsoft managed to beat Google to the punch investing in ChatGPT.
Google Assistant is arguably the best one on the market imo and would've been made even better with the R&D of OpenAI.
Google's sheer data access + ChatGPT would've been next level.


Ok, so let's place bets

When will it drop the N word?
When will users make the bot sexist?
When will it say Hitler did nothing wrong?
When will Google takenit down for "maintenance"?


I asked it if he can create, it said of course I can... I asked it to make me a model in blender 3d and it says.. I can but I can't.
