Tech giant Google expands its AI based chatbot Bard, reaching it to consumers in 180 different countries. Google was under constant criticism for not making their version of AI chatbot public, unlike their competitor Open AI’s ChatGPT. They said in response that they wanted to ensure the safety of its products before launching them.
Google’s Bard is capable of arithmetic, logic and reasoning skills. It is also able to create program codes, helping developers and amateur programmers to write and debug codes in more than 20 programming languages. The Bard itself is programmed on Google’s own programming language LaMDA.
The results that the Bard will produce are not just limited to text, but will also include images from Google images. Google also promises to integrate its apps such as Gmail, Maps and Docs with Bard.
The launch of Bard AI in other countries came as a part of the developer’s conference of Google I/O. The conference also introduced other Google products along with this.
Google also launched their own foldable phone called Pixel Fold. It is a premium phone price ranged at $1800. The book-style folding phone is said to have an inner display of 7.69 inch, with a durable hinge and water-resistance.
They also introduced their mid-range phone Pixel 7a, which is a less-expensive version of the Pixel 7. Apart from this Google also launched its Pixel Tablet too.
Google unveiled their new language PaLM 2, which is said to do a wide range of topics like translation, coding, reasoning and language generation. They are also developing the Android 14 operating system for lock screen customization and the ability to use AI generated wallpapers.
Dave Burke, VP of Android engineering at Google gave a preview of how to customize the lock screens and how to use emojis and photos to create 3D wallpapers using generative AI.
