Google opens Bard chatbot to test users, plans more AI for search

Google parent Alphabet Inc GOOGL.O, in a bid to outdo Microsoft Corp MSFT.O in the race to lead a new wave of technology, plans to introduce a chatbot service and more artificial intelligence for its search engine as well as developers.

Alphabet CEO Sundar Pichai announced in a blog post on Monday that the business is launching a conversational AI service called Bard to gather user input before going live to the general public.

LaMDA, a Google AI that can produce language so human-like that a corporate engineer last year referred to it as sentient, a claim that the tech giant and scientists roundly rejected, powers Bard.

The information comes in the wake of recent declarations by Microsoft that it wants to incorporate AI into all of its products and expand the use of ChatGPT, the wildly popular chatbot from the OpenAI-backed business.

According to Pichai, Google also intends to include AI-powered capabilities into its search engine that synthesize data to respond to difficult questions like which instrument is simpler to learn to play: the guitar or the piano. And starting next month, Google will provide web developers, creators, and businesses with tools, initially powered by LaMDA and eventually by other AI technology, he said.
