With 'Bard', users can ask the AI to help them achieve their goals by providing tips, simplify complex topics, or even spark creativity for writing blog posts. Google has described 'Bard' as a direct interface to a large language model (LLM), which works as a prediction engine. When users give a prompt, 'Bard' generates a response by selecting one word at a time from words that are likely to come next.
'Bard' is a complementary experience to Google Search and can be easily integrated with it. Users can check 'Bard's' responses or explore sources across the web by clicking "Google it." This new AI tool can also improve the search experience by deepening the integration of LLMs into search results.
'Bard' is an early experiment for users to collaborate with generative AI, and Google plans to expand its capabilities over time. This expansion includes adding more languages, coding, and multimodal experiences. Google has stated that they will continue to improve the 'Bard' experience and update it with newer and more capable models as more people use it.
The release of 'Bard' comes at a time when there is a growing interest in generative AI that creates text, images, videos, and music based on user prompts. As a result, the competition in the AI language generation space is intensifying.
