Google Bard, an experiment that lets you collaborate with generative AI, is now available in Kenya! You can use Bard to boost your productivity, accelerate your ideas and fuel your curiosity. You might ask Bard to give you tips to improve your writing skills, explain how solar panels work or spark your creativity by outlining a blog post.
Google Bard is powered by a large language model (LLM), specifically a lightweight and optimized version of LaMDA, which is Google’s state-of-the-art conversational AI system. Bard can generate natural and engaging responses to a wide range of prompts, from factual queries to creative requests. You can think of Bard as a smart and friendly partner that can help you explore any topic you’re interested in.
Bard was first announced in March 2023 as an early experiment that was initially available only in the U.S. and the U.K. Since then, Google has been working hard to expand Bard’s availability to more countries and languages, as well as to improve its quality and reliability. We’ve also been collecting feedback from users who have tried Bard and shared their experiences with us.
With Google Bard now available in Kenya, We’re thrilled to bring Bard to Kenya, the technology is ripe to inspire and empower Kenyans to learn new things, express themselves and have fun. Kenya is a vibrant and diverse country with a rich culture and history, which should inspire Kenyans to be more creative with Google’s Bard technology.
To try Bard, you need to sign up with your Google account and agree to the terms of service. You can access Bard from any device with an internet connection, either through the web app or the mobile app. Once you’re in, you can start typing or speaking your prompts and see how Bard responds. You can also choose from different drafts of Bard’s responses, ask follow-up questions or have Bard try again.
Bard is still an experiment, and it’s not perfect. Sometimes it might give inaccurate, misleading or false information while presenting it confidently. Sometimes it might reflect real-world biases and stereotypes that it learned from the data it was trained on. And sometimes it might generate responses that are inappropriate or harmful.
