Google is making its AI chatbot Bard available to users in the US and UK. While its interface is similar to Microsoft's Bing AI, it has some differences. Read on to learn more about the differences between Bard and Bing.
Google has announced that it's making its AI chatbot Bard more widely available to users in the US and the UK.
The interface is similar to Microsoft's Bing AI, but some differences exist. Google's chatbot can dictate your queries, which Bing AI doesn't offer on desktop. Google includes an easy way to see alternative responses within the conversation, which Bing AI doesn't do.
However, the biggest difference is the language Google uses in relation to Bard. Once you navigate the website, you are reminded that "Bard is an experiment" and that it "will not always get it right." Google is painstakingly clear that Bard is a work in progress and may display inaccurate or offensive information that doesn't represent Google's views. Google has also released a blog covering how to use Bard AI for its new users to understand the tool better.
The two chatbots also have functional differences, but the biggest takeaway is that Bard is not perfect and may make mistakes. Nevertheless, it's a promising development in AI chatbots and provides insight into what the future may hold.
