When ChatGPT made its viral debut just over two months ago, one of the many questions it raised was how Google would be impacted. The search giant hopes to provide some answers with the introduction of its own AI chatbot, Bard, in “the coming weeks.”
In a statement published Monday, Google CEO Sundar Pichai said Bard has been rolled out to external quality testers, and that the public will soon see AI-powered features in Google Search. According to Pichai, “people are turning to Google for deeper insights,” and Bard will be able to weigh in on “questions where there’s no one right answer.”
Pichai later told employees that the company will “be enlisting every Googler to help shape Bard” through a user testing event “in the spirit of an internal hackathon,” CNBC reports, citing an internal memo.
