Google is moving to the next stage of its AI development, releasing it to the public to try out, although using it will require joining a waitlist.
Bard AI is Google’s attempt to take on Microsoft’s Bing AI, which is based on OpenAI’s ChatGPT. Unfortunately for Google, its initial launch of Bard did not go well, with the AI giving a wrong answer during its public reveal. The flub cost Alphabet $100 billion in stock value.
Since its botched reveal, Google has been working night and day to improve Bard, with CEO Sundar Pichai asking Googlers to volunteer their time to help improve it.
It seems Google believes Bard is finally ready for the public, providing a waitlist for people to sign up for access:
Meet Bard: your creative and helpful collaborator, here to supercharge your imagination, boost your productivity, and bring your ideas to life.
Bard is an experiment and may give inaccurate or inappropriate responses. You can help make Bard better by leaving feedback. Join the waitlist and try it for yourself.
