Google Releases Bard AI Chatbot Amid Competition With ChatGPT

Google launched an artificial intelligence chatbot called Bard on Tuesday, the company’s response to the AI frenzy dominating big tech companies after the launch of OpenAI’s ChatGPT—backed by Google’s rival Microsoft—caught the attention of millions last year.

The new chatbot—a software programmed to simulate human conversation—will initially be available to a limited number of users in the U.S. and the U.K., and more users, countries and languages will be included over time, Google said Tuesday, but did not specify exactly how many users would have access to the technology.
Users will access Bard through a separate website from the Google search engine, Google said, in an effort to separate the source of much of the company’s revenue from the experimental technology that has been prone to problems at other companies.

Google also announced AI-powered features last week for Google Cloud and Google Workspace, like Google Docs and Google Sheets, including a feature that would draft emails for users who select a specific topic.
