Google Previews a Smarter Google Assistant with Generative AI
Oct 4, 2023, 10:37 AM by Rich Brome
Google has announced Google Assistant with Bard, a new version of its voice assistant that integrates the company's Bard large language model generative AI technology, allowing it to act more like an intelligent assistant. Assistant with Bard takes both speech and visual input, can access your personal data, and can take action on your behalf. It is also conversational, allowing follow-up questions that consider the context of the whole conversation. Google previewed several examples, such as "catch me up on important emails this week" and "make me a grocery list for the weekend, heavy on snacks, with smoothies." It can also consider anything visual shown on your phone's screen, such as "create a cute social caption for this photo" or, viewing a photo you just snapped of a sign, "which way should I go?". Google says it will invite select users to test the feature soon, with select Pixel phone users able to access the feature in the coming months.
