Two years ago we unveiled next-generation language and conversation capabilities powered by our Language Model for Dialogue Applications (or LaMDA for short).

We’ve been working on an experimental conversational AI service, powered by LaMDA, that we’re calling Bard. And today, we’re taking another step forward by opening it up to trusted testers ahead of making it more widely available to the public in the coming weeks.

Bard seeks to combine the breadth of the world’s knowledge with the power, intelligence and creativity of our large language models. It draws on information from the web to provide fresh, high-quality responses. Bard can be an outlet for creativity, and a launchpad for curiosity, helping you to explain new discoveries from NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope to a 9-year-old, or learn more about the best strikers in football right now, and then get drills to build your skills.

We’re releasing it initially with our lightweight model version of LaMDA. This much smaller model requires significantly less computing power, enabling us to scale to more users, allowing for more feedback. We’ll combine external feedback with our own internal testing to make sure Bard’s responses meet a high bar for quality, safety and groundedness in real-world information. We’re excited for this phase of testing to help us continue to learn and improve Bard’s quality and speed.

"Google’s response to ChatGPT has got off to an embarrassing start after its new artificial intelligence-powered chatbot gave a wrong answer in a promotional video, as investors wiped more than $100bn (£82bn) off the value of the search engine’s parent company, Alphabet."

My top-secret undercover source at Microsoft's Redmond headquarters sent me this rare footage from the latest board meeting upon hearing the news:

Google will likely end up with another failed program, like so many of its other failed "connectivity" apps and various projects. Kind of like Microsoft. :D Shoutout to @Oerlink ;)

Microsoft Engineer 1:
"Let's create something and take it as far as we can take it!"
Microsoft Engineer 2: "Sounds awesome! We'll do so much for those in userland!"
Microsoft Engineer 3: "Our team has a great security project. Security for the masses!"
Microsoft Division VP: "I'll back all of that. Let's give it a go! Let's deliver! For All Mankind!"

Five years later:

Microsoft Division VP:
"Your project is 'deprecated.' Engineers 1 & 2 ... you're fired! Engineers 3 your team is being reassigned as your security project is being put on "hold" and tasks are being off-shored to India and Estonia."
Microsoft Engineer 3: "Our project works really well. Lots of users use it."
Microsoft Division VP: "Engineer 3 go fly a kite. Pretty desktop icons are more important."
User in Userland: "WTF?"
