Google has announced that it is opening up its Bard generative AI chatbot to the public, eradicating the waitlist that was previously in place. The company made the announcement at its annual developer conference, Google I/O, on May 10, 2023.

Bard is a large language model, also known as a conversational AI or chatbot trained to be informative and comprehensive. Bard from Google generates a massive amount of text data, and can communicate and generate human-like text in response to a wide range of prompts and questions. For example, Bard can provide summaries of factual topics or create stories.

Google first announced Bard in May 2022, and it has been in beta testing since then. The company has been slowly expanding access to Bard, and it is now available to anyone in over 180 countries and territories.

In a blog post announcing the change, Sissie Hsiao, vice president and GM for Assistant and Bard at Google, said that the company is “excited to make Bard more widely available so that people can try it out and share their feedback with us.”

“We believe that Bard has the potential to be a powerful tool for people all over the world, and we’re excited to see how people use it,” Hsiao said.

Bard is still under development, but Google says that it is constantly being improved. The company is working on adding new features and capabilities to Bard, and it is also working to make Bard more accessible to people around the world.
