A few months ago, Google launched its ChatGPT competitor, Bard AI. Google Bard used Google’s Pre-training and Auxiliary Language Modeling (PaLM) and was trained on datasets based on internet content.
So, Google Bard AI does have some more edge over ChatGPT. However, when it was first introduced, it was made available for early access and was limited to only US and UK users.
However, in Google I/O 2023, the tech giant recently announced that its new AI chatbot is now available in more than 180 countries worldwide. This means you can now access Google Bard without a waitlist or connecting to a US or UK VPN server.
