If verifiable, users can click highlighted phrases to explore additional information supporting or contradicting Bard's response found through Search.
Give life to your concepts with image creation
To enhance your creativity, you can now generate images within Bard in English, accessible in most countries globally, free of charge. This enhanced capability is driven by our refined Imagen 2 model, meticulously crafted to maintain a balance between quality and speed, resulting in photorealistic outputs of high caliber. Simply input a description, such as "produce an image of a dog surfing," and Bard will craft personalized, diverse visuals to breathe life into your ideas.
Aligned with Google's AI Principles, image generation was developed with a focus on responsibility. To maintain transparency and distinguish between visuals generated with Bard and original human artwork, Bard employs SynthID. This technology embeds digitally identifiable watermarks into the pixels of generated images, ensuring clear differentiation.
Google's technical safeguards and commitments to data safety aim to mitigate the presence of violent, offensive, or sexually explicit content. Furthermore, Google implements filters to prevent the generation of images featuring identifiable individuals. They have declared their ongoing investment in innovative techniques to enhance the safety and privacy measures of their models.
These enhancements further solidify Bard as an increasingly valuable and universally accessible AI partner, assisting with endeavors ranging from significant creative projects to routine tasks. Explore its capabilities today at bard.google.com.
