In order to “enhance its systems” and compete with OpenAI’s ChatGPT, Google has begun granting access to Bard, a generative artificial intelligence chatbot.
US and UK users can now access Bard through its official website. According to the major tech company, it will eventually be offered in additional regions and additional languages.
The AI-powered Bing, based on OpenAI’s huge language model specifically created for search, is more potent than even ChatGPT and was also revealed at the same time as Bard last month.

The launch of Google’s Bing didn’t go as planned because the chatbot gave false information in
a promotional film, which reduced the market value of Google parent Alphabet by $100 billion.
In a blog post, the president of product, Sissie Hsiao, and vice president of research, Eli Collins, said, “Today we’re starting to open access to Bard, an early experiment that lets you collaborate with generative AI. This follows our announcements from last week as we continue to bring helpful AI experiences to people, businesses, and communities.”
Sundar Pichai said, ‘We are expanding access to Bard in US + UK with more countries ahead, it’s an early experiment that lets you collaborate with generative AI. Hope Bard sparks more creativity and curiosity and will get better with feedback.’
