Google has unveiled a new chatbot called Bard Extensions, and let me tell you, it’s pretty badass. This AI-powered chatbot can dig deep into your Gmail, Docs, and Drive, and even other Google apps and services. It’s like a one-stop-shop for all your information needs.
Now, this means you can ask Bard questions about your own documents and personal information stored in your accounts. And get this – it can even help you with tasks like writing a cover letter by summarizing your resume stored in Google Drive. Talk about convenience!
But hold up, folks. I know what you’re thinking. Is Google snooping around your personal stuff? Well, according to the tech giant, they’re committed to protecting your privacy. They claim that your content won’t be used to train their models or target you with ads. And hey, you always have control over your privacy settings, so you can turn off these extensions whenever you want.
Now, let’s talk about fact-checking. AI chatbots can sometimes make stuff up. Yeah, I know, it’s wild. So, to help you out, Google has added an updated “Google it” button. When you click on it, Bard will compare its answers to relevant web pages and provide links that confirm or contradict its original response. It’s like putting Bard’s claims to the test and seeing if it holds up.
Now, here’s the cool part. Bard is powered by PaLM 2, which is a massive language model with a whopping 340 billion parameters. And guess what? Google has made these new features available after updating its model. They’ve used state-of-the-art reinforcement learning techniques to make Bard more intuitive and imaginative. So whether you need help with creative collaboration, multilingual assistance, or coding, Bard’s got your back.
So, there you have it, folks. Google’s Bard Extensions are here to make your life easier. With access to your personal information and a knack for fact-checking, this chatbot is definitely a game-changer.
