Google Launches Early Access To AI Chatbot ‘Bard’

Google is jumping into the crowded world of AI-powered chatbots, launching its new app Bard in early access this week. The company is describing Bard as a ‘complement’ to search engines and not a search engine itself. Functionally, it works much like other chatbots such as ChatGPT, with users offering text prompts that Bard responds to. Users can sign up for the waitlist to use Bard, but no set timetable has been announced.
