Similar to ChatGPT, news of Bard's launch was received with much excitement. With no official launch date set, audiences have criticized the company for the delay.
However, members of Google’s Pixel Superfans program recently received an email with official invitations to test Bard ahead of its release.
“Meet Bard, an early experiment by Google that lets you collaborate with generative AI. We’d like to offer you – a member of our Pixel Superfan community – early access so you can get started as soon as Bard launches, and share your feedback,” reads the official email.
Until now, the AI was tested using Google's Trusted Tester program and by company employees who would then provide feedback.
“We can’t wait to hear how people start using Bard, but we also know that large language models will not always get it right. Input from a wide range of experts and users will help Bard improve,” the email states.
Testing by Pixel Superfans indicates that Bard is one step closer to launch, but that the AI could still use further development. Feedback from potential customers will be used to help train the AI by providing corrections for wrong answers and offering precision.
