In addition to that, PaLM 2 is the next-generation language model developed by Google. Moreover, it is relatively new Large Language Model. Also, PaLM 2 is faster than previous models, this will further enhance Bard AI and will make it capable of generating faster responses.
Image Generator in Bard AI:
At the time of writing this article, Bard is not able to generate images. But soon in near future, it will become capable of generating AI arts from the user prompts. This feature in Bard AI chatbot will become possible with the help of Adobe Firefly.

And the Google is integrating this Firefly’s model with Bard to make this AI chatbot able to generate AI images. Moreover, those AI generated images can be further edited as per the user requirements.
Bard is now able to generate textual responses with the appropriate images from the internet. This feature is similar to the Microsoft Bing AI chat in which it gives responses with images. Furthermore, in Bard, both text and visuals are shown in the chat itself. But if you want to go to the source of image, you can do so by clicking on the link provided on the image. Also, this feature will also appear in the Google search as a new Generative AI feature.
