Google She announced that she will be launching her own chatbot artificial intelligence (AI), Bard, in 20 languages ​​in the “coming weeks and months” and Shares are up more than 9% in two days.

The company announced at Google’s annual developer event that the Bard chatbot, which launched nearly two months ago and was only accessible by invitation or by queue, is now open in 180 countries in English.

It also opened up two new languages, Japanese and Korean. “We’re starting with Japanese and Korean coming in. We’re starting with languages ​​where we think Bard could have a really interesting use, where we’ve seen interest from communities, and where we feel the language is ready,” explained Tulsi Doshi, director of product management for the AI ​​team responsible for Google. , for EFE.

Sissie Hsiao, Google vice president and general manager of Google Assistant and Bard, said in her Google presentation that Bard will be available in “top 40 languages” around the world “very soon” and while Doshi did not specify a date, he told EFE that announcements will be made in ” the coming weeks and months.”

However, since the beginning of this year, Google has been in a race to be the reference company for AI in clear competition with Microsoft, which this year launched Bing, an AI chatbot powered by GPT-4 and DALL-E 2 technology from Open AI (creators of ChatGPT and DALL-E).

Since AI chatbots became popular with the launch of ChatGPT, many experts have expressed concern about the effects these tools might have on job stability (due to the risk of job extinguishing) or misinformation.

Doshi stressed that this technology must be built “responsibly from the ground up”.

“We need to build it with the extra security measures in place, we need to build it with intent, we need to build it for the custom use cases that we think are really valuable.”I notice.

Likewise, Doshi encouraged people who were more skeptical and concerned about the effects of this technology to try Bard and then share their assessment with Google.

He concluded, “It’s important that we really build a collective understanding of the technology. The journey now will influence the flights to come. And I think building accountability now means we can hopefully start to build a path that leads to useful AI.”
