In the race between systems with artificial intelligence, Google initially lost out to ChatGPT. But the internet giant is continually improving its chatbot Bard.

The chatbot Bard by In the future, Google will help users recognize false facts in the AI ​​system’s answers. Bard’s answers can be checked with the click of a button with the colorful Google logo, Google executive Jack Krawczyk announced in Mountain View.

The parts of the answer where the Bard dialogue system is very confident are then marked green. The passages where Bard also discovered information on the Internet that could refute this statement are then colored orange.

“Double check” only in English

Krawczyk said Bard is the first AI language model that is willing to admit when it is unsure of something by not highlighting it in green. “Bard even goes a step further and says, ‘I’m willing to admit that we made a mistake.'” The “double check” will be made available worldwide, but initially only in English.

In another innovation, Google wants to enable users to connect information from their personal lives with Bard’s artificial intelligence. To do this, users can provide the Bard system with targeted data from their personal GMail mailbox and the documents stored in the cloud storage Google Drive for evaluation.

Google initially reacted very hesitantly to the advance of the Californian start-up OpenAI, which had gained over 100 million users in just a few weeks since November last year with its text robot ChatGPT. Initially, Bard launched in English only in the US and UK in mid-March. Bard is now available around the globe in 40 languages.

In the German-language version of Bard, it will in future also be possible to combine voice input with uploading images. For example, you can upload a photo of the label of a wine bottle and have Bard explain in detail which main dish goes best with it. The function of sharing a Bard chat history with other people is now also available in German.
