Google now allows the general public to register to test Bard, its new conversational AI. It will finally soon be possible to know what this alternative to ChatGPT is worth.
Registrations have been launched in the US and UK Google chatbot can give several draft answers It is possible to generate another result or search via Google Search
Like OpenAI’s ChatGPT, which is built on large language models (LLMs), Google Bard is based on the company’s LLM, called LaMDA. Specifically, Bard uses a light and refined version of LaMDA, which allows Google to integrate the chatbot with its various services without the need for great computing power.
During the initial phase, anyone in the US and UK can sign up to try Bard. Users who gain access will be offered a chat interface with verbiage and a pair of four-pointed stars representing Bard’s logo at the top of the screen.
Examples are also given of how to ask questions or make requests to Bard. For example, you can let the AI prepare a plan for your next trip or just get answers immediately.

Before you can ask a question, a note below the search bar explains how Bard can give wrong and offensive answers. Google adds that Bard can often give you multiple answers.
Thereafter, you will have the option to thumbs up or down the result or generate another query. A “Google it” button is also available, which presumably takes you to the Google search page.
Google did not specify in which regions or countries Bard will be available next. At the same time, users of Pixel smartphones have received invitations without registering to test the experimental version of the chatbot. Google may reveal more details about Bard alongside Android 14 at Google I/O in May.
Do you think conversational AI should be a feature built into smartphones?
