Google's burgeoning chatbot Bard has now entered open public beta and is available for anyone to try out as long as they provide feedback to the company.

So, what exactly is Bard? It's Google's response to OpenAI's ChatGPT, Microsoft Bing's AI chatbot, and every other AI-enhanced chatbot out there. Bard starts with a blank text box and lets users ask whatever questions they want. The chatbot responds in a conversational manner.
