New programming- and software-development-related functions have been introduced to Google’s experimental Bard artificial intelligence tool. Bard now has access to the company’s “code generation, debugging, and code explanation” tools. According to Google, spreadsheet formulas have now been added to the mix. According to a Google blog post, users of the AI chatbot had regularly requested that Alphabet-owned Google include such capabilities.
This prompted the business to do so. The IT juggernaut has once promised to include them. Bard’s new capacity to explain code may be “particularly helpful” to those who are new to programming or who require “some additional support to understand what a block of code might output,” according to Google. The chatbot “may occasionally provide inaccurate, misleading, or false information while presenting it confidently,” according to Google, which stressed Bard is “still an early experiment.”

According to the business, “Bard may provide you with working code that does not yield the desired output, or provide you with code that is not optimal or complete.” “Always double-check Bard’s responses and carefully test and review code for errors, bugs, and vulnerabilities before relying on it.”
Here is some recent tech news:
Bard was first made public by the tech giant in February, but at that time, only “trusted testers” could use it. Before Bard was revealed, on February 2, Alphabet CEO Sundar Pichai stated that AI was the “most profound” technology the business was working on. People would “see a lot from us in the coming few months” in terms of AI, he claimed, adding that Google is “continu[ing] to invest” in the field.
