European regulation scares the bard of Google for now

Artificial intelligence is a technological revolution that we are witnessing first and foremost, and so we are reforming to understand its political, economic and social implications. Fortunately, it looks like the European Union is preparing a serious regulation of the subject, although for now Open AI (Chat GPT) and Yahoo (Bing) ‘chatbots’ are already working in Spain and the rest of the continent. . Google’s ‘Bard’ has decided to wait to find out what it will face in terms of regulations.

The reality is that some EU countries have also been hostile to the concept of AI. The most obvious case is Italy where it was temporarily banned, at least until its capabilities have been fully understood. It is a technology that, as it develops in professions such as journalism or screenwriting, evokes a mixture of emotion, horror and skepticism. But given that Google’s ‘Bard’ has access to all the information from the most used search engine in the world, it could be the one that triumphs over its direct competitors.

But meanwhile the company is already launching its rival to ChatGPT in some 180 countries, including the United States, with only Europe and Canada left out of the large-scale launch. Not that it is impossible to access the tool in the first place for comparison, any VPN can be used to access and see what this chatbot offers that sets it apart from the most famous ones. In particular, the OpenIA bot seems to be aiming to achieve that.

As of now, the company has not given an exact launch date in those markets which are still lagging behind. Noting that they are prominent locations in the developed world, but can also manifest themselves as hostile locations, and this type of device has begun to accumulate, especially after the writers’ strike began in the United States, It shouldn’t come as a big surprise that a beloved company like Google is somewhat careful when considering a launch. At the same time, it doesn’t seem like a credible alternative to the world’s leading tech company, or one of those while its rivals have left it behind to realize the full potential of these technologies.

Google has to care for its place in the technology market

Meanwhile, the company claims to be one of the biggest companies in the world of technology. However that didn’t save it from laying off a high percentage of its workforce to cushion the post-pandemic shock, which in the case of Google’s parent company, Alphabet, has hit the entire sector. Some 12,000 employees have been laid off since the start of the anal.

Given such a delicate situation across the sector, it shouldn’t seem particularly strange that Google and Alphabet are treading carefully with every move they make. Bad press, or a bad financial decision, could put them in a not-so-disastrous but disastrous position. After all, the company appears to be too large to take a truly fatal blow, even without outside support.

But a bad launch, or one that has to make some choices after a new regulation is approved, might not be a good idea. Given that ‘Bard’ is linked to the browser, and one of the issues discussed by the EU is the use of other creators’ work to “educate” AI, it’s interesting that Alphabet should be able to access its chatbots. May have to limit its search engine so that it can work on this side of the sea.


Although “Bard” may not yet be used in Spanish territory, we can find what the company producing it is offering as great differentiating factors. The truth is that perhaps most striking is the visual segment they present alongside the answers and lessons their competitors have submitted themselves. From finding images in the browser to sharing them as well as being able to create full graphics based on user entered data.

In addition, you can also do the opposite process, creating text based on images or sounds. The latter could make it an especially useful tool for some businesses that have so far been most uncomfortable with the idea of ​​AI. It’s that the prospect of searching more quickly for an image’s provenance or more accurately pinpointing the time of an interview may make the ‘Bard’ or one of its competitors the biggest sceptic.
