Google Lens is coming to Bard in Arabic

Google Lens and Bard

Alphabet-owned Google announced new features for its generative artificial intelligence (AI) tool Bard which brings the power of image recognition technology Google Lens. The additions to Bard will “make it more accessible and helpful in Arabic and other languages around the world”, said the big tech company.

The update allows Arabic speaking users to now upload images with ‘Google Lens’, get responses through ‘Search images’ in responses, and modify Bard’s responses as needed.

The search giant said “Bard is powered by Google’s most capable language model yet, ‘PaLM2’, which has been further developed based on users’ feedback to become more intuitive, and respond with greater quality and accuracy in all languages”, in its release.

With the updated model, Bard is now making its existing English language features available to more than 40 new languages, as well as launching new capabilities in English, and soon to other languages.

The list of features include:

• Use images in prompts: Google Lens recognises and analyses objects, texts and images, into Bard so people can use images in prompts
• Modify responses: Bard’s responses can be changed to five options including simple, long, short, professional or casual
• Get images in responses: Images to aid Bard’s responses so people can benefit from relevant visuals
• Continue conversations with Bard: Ask Bard additional questions about the topic or use it as a starting point for new ideas.
• Connect to Google apps, services: Bard Extensions in English connects it to Gmail, Docs, Drive, Maps, YouTube, Google Flights and Google Hotels. By using Workspace extensions, content from such apps will not be seen or used by human reviewers or to train the model (available in English only)

“We are delighted by the positive feedback we have received from Arabic speakers using Bard. We are committed to continuously improving Bard and bringing more capabilities to Arabic speakers in the future.” – a quote generated by Bard.

Bard is Google’s generative AI experiment, launched in English last March.

Bard has then been expanded to 40+ languages including Arabic earlier in July. Bard is designed to enable people to use their creative potential by developing new ideas, learn about the world by exploring topics from different perspectives, and boost productivity by simplifying dense content. Bard is available to use on both mobile and desktop.
