How to Generate Image using Bard?

Creating images with Bard is easy; just describe what you want, and Bard will make unique visuals for you. Google makes sure everything is clear by adding special watermarks to the images using SynthID, showing that they were made by AI.

Why Google is pushing so hard with AI

AI is the buzzword of 2024 and almost all the tech giants in the world are racing to dominate space. ChatGPT is already in its league of generative AI space and Microsoft’s Copilot is not far behind. As a result, Google is facing fierce competition, and to dominate its position, especially in the search market, it makes sense for Google to be riding the AI bandwagon!

Google also revealed that the Large Model Systems Organization considers Bard with Gemini Pro to be the most preferred chatbot available, which makes it even more necessary for Google to keep it ahead in the game!
