Google, which is owned by Alphabet Inc., already has been testing its own conversational chatbot called Bard.
Google disclosed plans to infuse its dominant search engine with more advanced artificial intelligence technology, a drive that’s in response to one of the biggest threats to its long-established position as the internet’s main gateway.
Google, which is owned by Alphabet Inc., already has been testing its own conversational chatbot called Bard. That product, powered by technology called generative AI that also fuels ChatGPT, has only been available to people accepted from a waitlist. But Google announced Wednesday that Bard will be available to all comers in more than 180 countries and more languages beyond English.
Bard’s multilingual expansion will begin with Japanese and Korean before adding about 40 more languages.
Now Google is ready to test the AI waters with its search engine, which has been synonymous with finding things on the internet for the past 20 years and serves as the pillar of a digital advertising empire that generated more than $220 billion in revenue last year
