Google opened up on Tuesday early access to its ChatGPT rival Bard.
The company stated in a blog post that access is starting in the US and UK and will expand to more countries and languages over time.
The Verge tested out Bard and said it is faster than either ChatGPT or Bing. In addition, it “seems to have as potentially broad capabilities as these other systems. (In our brief tests, it was also able to generate lines of code, for example.) But it also lacks Bing’s clearly labeled footnotes, which Google says only appear when it directly quotes a source like a news article and seemed generally more constrained in its answers.”
Google added, “We’ll continue to improve Bard and add capabilities, including coding, more languages and multimodal experiences. And one thing is certain: We’ll learn alongside you as we go. With your feedback, Bard will keep getting better and better.”
