Hello to all technology lovers! I'm Steven Ortiz.
In an exciting turn of events, Google's Bard chatbot has made a significant leap in functionality by incorporating artificial intelligence (AI) image generation. This strategic advance puts Bard in direct competition with ChatGPT Plus, its OpenAI rival, which has offered this feature for months. Find out how Google has improved the user experience by enabling Bard to create images using the powerful text-to-image model Image 2. In addition, we'll explore the implications of this update on the competition between the AI giants and the steps taken by Google to address concerns about AI image generation.
Bard, Google's flagship chatbot, has finally reached a crucial milestone by introducing AI-powered image generation. Until now, OpenAI's ChatGPT Plus had the edge in this feature, but Google has closed the gap by powering Bard with the Gemini Pro language model and the text-to-picture Image 2 model.
Previously, the lack of text-to-image conversion capabilities in Bard gave ChatGPT Plus a significant advantage. However, with the Gemini Pro-powered upgrade, Bard now allows users to request photo generation for free, unlike ChatGPT Plus, which requires a paid subscription.

It is important to note that AI image generation has been the subject of controversy recently due to the creation of fake sexually explicit photos of celebrities. In response to this, Google has implemented security measures, including a watermark on images generated by Bard, clearly indicating their artificial origin. In addition, precautions have been taken to prevent the generation of offensive or explicit images.
The expansion doesn't stop here: Google has launched ImageFX, an experimental photo tool powered by Image 2. This new feature allows users to create images with text messages and send feedback directly to Google engineers. ImageFX follows the ethical principles of artificial intelligence and ensures that all generated images are flagged and subject to the technical barriers set by Google.
As for Bard, it has not only enhanced its image generation capabilities, but also expanded its linguistic scope to more than 40 languages in more than 230 countries. In addition, it has implemented the double-checking feature in 40 languages, allowing users to search for endorsements or contradictions automatically on the Internet.
This evolution of Bard marks an exciting moment in the competition between artificial intelligence giants, offering users a richer and more diverse experience with AI-powered image generation.
