Google's Gemini Pro in Bard now supports nine Indian languages
Google integrated Gemini Pro into its AI chatbot Bard in December last year, and it is now accessible in over 230 countries and territories, supporting more than 40 languages. This includes nine Indian languages: Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Bengali, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi, Gujarati, and Urdu. "The Large Model Systems Organisation, a leading evaluator of language models and chatbots across languages, recently shared that Bard with Gemini Pro is one of the most preferred chatbots available (with or without cost), noting that it has made a “stunning leap” forward", Google said.
The company has also expanded its 'double-check feature' in Bard, which is already used by millions of people in English, to more than 40 languages. "When you click on the 'G' icon, Bard will evaluate whether there is content across the web to substantiate its response. If it can be evaluated, you can click the highlighted phrases and learn more about supporting or contradicting information found by Search". Google explained.
Furthermore, the technology giant has expanded the availability of image generation in Bard to users in most countries globally, free of charge. This enhancement is facilitated by the recently updated 'Imagen 2 model,' strategically crafted to achieve a harmonious blend of quality and speed, resulting in top-notch, lifelike outputs. Users can simply input a description, such as "generate an image of a dog surfing," and Bard will produce personalized and diverse visuals, transforming their concepts into reality.
"Our technical guardrails and investments in the safety of training data seek to limit violent, offensive or sexually explicit content. Additionally, we apply filters designed to avoid the generation of images of named people", the tech giant noted. Google also mentioned investing in new techniques to improve the safety and privacy protections of their models.
