Google’s Bard Now Has Programming Capabilities, Can Assist Users to Code, Debug & Explain

The AI race is getting edgier, more exciting, and more competitive than ever. To keep up with its nemesis, Alphabet Inc’s recently announced that its AI chatbot Bard will now enable users, developers, and coders to write code and explain code snippets among other features.

Paige Bailey, group product manager for Google Research, explained that besides helping you with code, Bard will also assist in snippet explanation. Whether you’re just starting to learn how to program or if you need some extra help to comprehend what a block of code might produce, this feature will be exceptionally useful.

While their rivals, OpenAI’s chatGPT, and Bing AI have been a part of the coding game for a while now, the tech giant claims that this update is a result of “one of the top requests” the company received from its users since its public release.

Earlier, Google CEO, Sunder Pichai while announcing Bard, which he called an experimental conversational AI service, powered by LaMDA, stated that it will use data from the internet to deliver original, excellent answers. Bard is a melting point of innovation, with information from around the world backed by the strength, wit, and imagination of our huge language models.

Bard – Still an Early Experiment

The blog further states that since Bard is a work in progress, sometimes, it may provide false, inaccurate, or misleading information. While coding, Bard could provide you with functional code that doesn’t result in the desired result or give you insufficient or subpar code.

Before trusting the code and using it, users should always double-check Bard’s responses and thoroughly test and examine it for flaws. If Bard quotes a coding guideline “at length,” it will also cite where it got from.

Interestingly, Bard can also help users with code optimization by speeding it up and improving its efficiency. Users will just have to respond with, “Could you please make that code faster?” or “Find error handling clauses you might have missed.” And voila, watch the magic unfold!
