Bard’s Global Expansion Gemini Pro and Exciting New Features

February 2, 2024 0 By Rowena Cletus

In a significant leap forward, Bard, the AI language model, introduced Gemini Pro last December, enhancing its understanding, reasoning, summarizing, and coding capabilities in English. Today, Bard with Gemini Pro is set to make waves globally, being available in over 40 languages across more than 230 countries and territories. This expansion aims to make the faster and more capable version of Bard accessible to a broader audience.

The Large Model Systems Organization, a prominent evaluator of language models and chatbots, recently acclaimed Bard with Gemini Pro as one of the most preferred chatbots available, regardless of cost. They noted a “stunning leap” in its capabilities, and blind evaluations with third-party raters ranked Bard with Gemini Pro among the top-performing conversational AIs, surpassing leading free and paid alternatives.

Bard users now have an enhanced experience with the expansion of the double-check feature to over 40 languages. Clicking on the “G” icon allows Bard to evaluate responses against web content, providing users with the ability to verify information across a broader linguistic spectrum.

In a move towards creativity, Bard introduces image generation in English, available in most countries worldwide at no cost. Powered by the updated Imagen 2 model, this feature balances quality and speed to deliver high-quality, photorealistic visual outputs. Users can now bring their ideas to life by typing in a description, such as “create an image of a dog riding a surfboard,” and Bard will generate custom visuals to complement the creative process.

With these advancements, Bard continues to position itself as a global leader in AI language models, offering users across diverse languages and cultures an enriched and innovative experience.
