Google has said it will continue to invest in new techniques to improve the safety and privacy protection of its artificial intelligence models.

This is in the face of rising global concern about AI, with many experts advocating for the regulation of this emerging technology. As the global firm expands Gemini Pro in Bard to Nigeria and across the world, it noted that its technical guardrails and investments in the safety of training data seek to limit violent, offensive, or sexually explicit content.

Gemini Pro seeks to give Bard more advanced understanding, reasoning, summarising, and coding abilities, increasing the potential of what individuals can achieve with AI. According to Google, Gemini is its most capable and general AI model.

It explained that the model was built to be multimodal, which means it can generalise and seamlessly understand, operate across, and combine different types of information, including text, code, audio, image, and video. It noted that Gemini Pro is its best model for scaling across a wide range of tasks.

Announcing other updates on Bard, Google’s version of ChatGPT, the firm said, “Since we know people want the ability to corroborate Bard’s responses, we’re also expanding our double-check feature, 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.”

The firm further stated that users can now generate images in Bard in English in most countries around the world.
