Google Unveils AI Bard Capable of Writing and Debugging Code, Access Still Limited

New Conversational AI Aims to Rival OpenAI's ChatGPT and Microsoft's Copilot

Google has recently equipped its artificial intelligence (AI) model Bard with the ability to write and debug code, aiming to catch up with Microsoft-backed OpenAI and its popular AI model, ChatGPT. With limited beta testing underway, Google Bard is currently available to users in the US and UK, who must sign up and receive an invitation to access the new AI service.

Google Bard vs. OpenAI and Microsoft

As the race to dominate the AI market heats up, Google has expanded the capabilities of its AI model Bard, allowing it to write and debug code in an effort to compete with OpenAI’s Codex and Microsoft’s Copilot. While these AI tools are designed primarily to save time on repetitive tasks involved in writing code, Google Bard offers additional support for debugging code, setting it apart from Microsoft’s Copilot.

Bard’s Capabilities and Limitations

Google Bard can write code in 20 programming languages, including C++, Java, and Python. The AI model can also provide explanations for code snippets, making it an invaluable tool for beginners. By understanding the output a piece of code creates, Bard can help resolve issues with the code, making it an even more useful resource for developers.

However, Google has cautioned that Bard may produce incomplete code that will need to be double-checked prior to use. Additionally, the tool can be tasked with creating more efficient or faster-working code with a simple request.

Beta Testing and Availability

While Google Bard’s capabilities are impressive, the AI model is still in its testing phase. Currently, it is available only to users in the US and UK, who can sign up and receive an invitation to access the service. According to Google, there are only a few open spots for testing Google AI services for the time being, so interested users are encouraged to join the waitlist as soon as possible.

International Rollout and Future Plans

Google has not yet announced an official rollout date for Bard, but the AI model is expected to eventually be available worldwide, wherever general Google applications are accessible. It is unclear whether the recent claims of plagiarism will impact the release date, but Google is currently relying on user feedback to identify and fix any bugs in the system.

Despite the limited availability of Bard during this testing phase, the company is optimistic about the AI model’s potential. As long as a user’s country has unrestricted access to general Google applications, they will be able to enjoy the world of AI-generated responses that Bard offers.

Competing in the AI Market

As Google continues to develop and improve its AI tools, the company faces stiff competition from the Microsoft-OpenAI partnership. To effectively compete with these tech giants, Google will need to unveil unique AI tools and features that set it apart from its rivals. With the debugging capability already distinguishing Bard from Microsoft’s Copilot, Google is likely to continue refining its AI services to cater to the evolving needs of developers and programmers worldwide.

As the beta testing of Google Bard continues, it remains to be seen how this new AI model will shape the future of AI technology and its role in the world of programming and code development.
