Google's Bard AI Can Now Fact-Check Its Own Answers

Google’s Bard, an AI chatbot, has made significant strides in fact-checking its own responses to queries.

As reported by The Verge on Tuesday, Bard now provides an option to “double-check” its responses. This feature evaluates the chatbot’s response against web content to substantiate its information.

Previously, chatbots like Bard have been criticized for their tendency to provide incorrect information, often misleading even highly educated individuals. Google introduced Bard with a “Google It” feature, which allowed users to verify the chatbot’s responses through Google’s search engine.

The new double-check feature evaluates Bard’s responses. Users can click on the highlighted phrases to learn more about supporting or contradicting information if the statement can be substantiated. Statements that Bard cannot verify are highlighted brown, indicating a potential error.

Jack Krawczyk, a senior director of products at Google, described the update as a significant step forward. “We may have created the first language model that admits it has made a mistake,” he said.

Alongside the fact-checking update, Bard can now connect to personal accounts on Gmail, Google Docs, Google Drive, YouTube, and Maps.
