It has been approximately three months since Google presented its own Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology called Bard to the world, two months if we count it since it arrived in Spain. This free access chatbot works in a similar way to ChatGPT, but now has the advantages of has been integrated into the apps from the company we use every day, such as Gmail, YouTube, Maps or Drive to improve and facilitate your user experience.
The best way to teach users the benefits of AI is by showing how they can apply it in their daily lives, and in the case of Google, the way to do it is to introduce this technology into the services we use every day so that the functions it has can be taken advantage of and promoted.
Although For now it is only available in EnglishGoogle has extended Bard to help you find and present information of interest from the company’s tools either in Gmail, Docs, Drive, Maps, YouTube or the Google Flights and Hotels search engines.
To make this work, Google has used advanced reinforcement learning techniques with the aim that your AI becomes more intuitive and imaginative. To understand the applications that can be given to the introduction of AI in this type of services, Google has given the following example.
Imagine that you are going to organize a trip with friends, now with the help of Bard, you can ask him to extract from Gmail a date when everyone is availablethat Find information about flights and hotels available for later ask for the fastest route to get to the airport, thanks to Google Maps.
Another example, in this case more focused on work, you could ask Bard to search for a specific document in a Drive and thus not having to waste time finding it. The company emphasizes that we do not have to worry about the privacy of our file, since There is no human intervention in the entire process.
Besides, This AI also does not collect information to show you ads and as they explain, the user has the power to mark your privacy preferences and activate or deactivate these extensions as many times as you want.
Without a doubt this project is very interesting, because it is finally giving a new vision of the utilities and facilities that AI offers us, we can be sure that this will continue to advance and little by little there will be more and more apps, platforms and services that integrate these technologies for the benefit of the user.
