Google has further enriched the functions and features of its AI chatbot Bard at its I / O developer conference, including support for new languages such as Japanese and Chinese, support for exporting chat records to Google Docs and Gmail, the introduction of visual search and dark color mode, and more.
The relevant information is as follows:
Removing the waitlist, opening up the English version
Google has removed the waitlist for Bard and opened up English access for users in 180 countries and regions around the world.
Introducing image generation services
Google also said at the I / O developer conference that it will work with Adobe to offer AI image generation (powered by Firefly software, scheduled to launch in the next few months). Bard will also integrate with third-party Web services such as Instacart and OpenTable.
Support for exporting chats to Google Docs and Gmail
Support for users to export chats to Google Docs and Gmail for easy sharing with friends, etc.
Improved code handling
Google Bard now uses the latest PaLM 2 language model, which improves the accuracy and usability of responses.
Google says the upgraded Bard is particularly adept at handling coding queries, including debugging and interpreting blocks of code in more than 20 languages, not only by providing sources but also by interpreting a particular block of code.
Google Bard will also introduce visual search, which operates in a similar experience to Google Image Search. As an example, the company asks “What are the must-see attractions in New Orleans?” The system generates a list of relevant locations – French Quarter, Audubon Zoo, etc.
Also is the integration of the Google Lens service. In the example, Google says users can submit a photo with a dog and ask: “Information about this dog”
Bard automatically identifies the breed of dog and provides information about the characteristics of the breed.
