Google’s 2024 is all about AI: here’s Bard Advanced, it’s a paid version. What it includes and everything you can do.

It was known that 2024 would be AI, or AI to put it in English. On the other hand, Google has always boasted, even when ChatGPT was the talk of the town, of having the leadership of devices made in Artificial Intelligence.

It is no coincidence that the Mountain View giant was the first to release AI features on smartphones (in the Google Pixel 8 and 8 Pro) and now looks like it will start the new year with a bang, in the name of Artificial Intelligence . Obviously.

So the advanced version of Bard is arriving, the chatbot based on generative artificial intelligence and machine learning developed by Google, created on the LaMDA model, ChatGPT’s number no competitor, so to speak.

Google appears to be working on an updated version of Bard called "Bard Advanced" that will be available via a paid subscription to Google One, as shared by developer Dylan Roussel on Twitter, or X if you’re a follower of Elon Musk. That’s it.

Bard Advanced appears to be powered by Gemini Ultra, the highest level of the LLM (Large Language Model) model recently announced by Google, according to Roussel’s advances. This is an upgrade from the current version of Bard, which runs the mid-range Gemini Pro. In one of the screenshots shared by Roussel, Bard Advanced is described as a “more capable language model with advanced mathematical and reasoning capabilities.”

Developer Bedros Pamboukian has also put meat in the fire: a string of code that suggests that Google is working on an “advanced” level. Bard Advanced, indeed. In the paid version of Bard there would also be a feature, code-named Motoko, which could allow users to create custom bots, much in the vein of ChaGPT. Which allows its subscribers to share personalized bots.

Google’s leap would lie in enhancing its AI to expand and improve the requests provided to Bard. As a "Gallery" section would allow, according to Russell, to "explore different topics to see what you can do with Bard".

Or a "task" tab to keep track of longer jobs Bard is currently working on, like generating images, and a way to add a custom background to shared Bard prompts. This is what’s cooking, this is what Google intends to develop, to also keep ChatGPT (OpenAi) and Copilot (Microsoft) at bay.
