The artificial intelligence chatbot Google’s Bard is evolving.
The company announced on Tuesday (19) a series of updates to Bard that will give the artificial intelligence tool access to Google’s full suite of tools — including YouTube, Google Drive, Google Flights and others — to help users in a wide range of ways. variety of tasks.
Users will be able, for example, to ask Bard to plan an upcoming trip, complete with real flight options. Or a user can ask the tool to summarize meeting notes taken in a recent Google Drive document.
Connections to other Google services are just some of the Bard improvements rolled out on Tuesday. Other updates include the ability to communicate with the chatbot in multiple languages, new fact-checking capabilities, and a broad update to the large language model on which the tool was built.
The new features mark the biggest update to Google’s Bard in the six months since it was widely released to the public.
The update comes as Google and other tech giants, including Microsoft and ChatGPT maker OpenAI, race to roll out increasingly sophisticated consumer-facing AI technologies and to convince users that such tools are more than just a gimmick.
Google — which at the beginning of this year supposedly issued an internal “code red” after OpenAI beat it to the launch of its AI chatbot — now it’s flexing the power of its other widely used software programs that could make Bard more useful.
