Estimated reading time: 1 minute, 18 seconds

Last month, Google introduced Bard, the experimental chatbot that allows users to collaborate with generative AI. Now, the company is offering early access to Bard to users in the US and UK. Bard is based on LaMDA (Language Model for Dialogue Applications), a conversational AI model capable of fluid and multi-turn dialogue.

Google is offering early access to Bard through the waitlist. To join the waitlist, interested users need to go to the website and select Join waitlist. If required, sign in with the personal Google account and select Yes, I’m in. After that, the user will receive an email notification when they get access to Bard. Currently, the company is not allowing users to sign up for Bard using a Google Workspace account.

Google also explains that Bard can provide false or misleading information and advice users to double-check the information. “Because they learn from a wide range of information that reflects real-world biases and stereotypes, those sometimes show up in their outputs. And they can provide inaccurate, misleading, or false information while presenting it confidently. For example, when asked to share a couple suggestions for easy indoor plants, Bard convincingly presented ideas…but it got some things wrong, like the scientific name for the ZZ plant,” Google said in a blog post.

The company will continue to improve Bard and add more capabilities, including coding, languages, and multimodal experiences. Google is rolling out access to Bard in the US and UK and will expand to other countries and languages soon.
