AI can make your searches more efficient.
AI technologies are here to stay, whether they’re assisting us in web searches or helping us choose what to wear, enhancing visual effects in movies, or improving our chances of landing a better job. These technologies will, of course, become more intelligent over time and include other capabilities, such as the capacity to search the internet for photographs, as they are developed further.
That is a function that was just added to Google Bard, which is a competitor to ChatGPT. You have the option of directly requesting photographs, much as you may currently do when conducting a conventional web search using Google, and you also have the option of getting pictures that are aligned with your text.
Images, according to Google’s changes log, have the ability to “bring concepts to life,” “make recommendations more persuasive,” and “enhance responses when you ask for visual information.” In other words, it has the potential to provide the written work that Bard produces, whether it be an explanation of scientific topics or a list of restaurant recommendations, a little bit more punch.
The OpenAI bot is entirely text-based, although it is able to display the content in a number of formats, including tables. ChatGPT, however, is not yet capable of creating images at the time this article was written.
Answers Feature Images
When you ask Bard a question, it will only include photos if it believes that they would be beneficial to the response. For the time being, at least, there is not a button that can be toggled to turn photographs on or off in the standard answers that Bard generates.
We have conducted searches for a variety of topics, including recommendations for local bars, an explanation of how optical illusions function, and questions regarding the development of the very first aircraft that was capable of flight.
There were no visuals included in Bard’s output when we requested for an explanation of what DNA was or for an account of the Battle of Hastings. On the other hand, you may specify in your inquiry that you want a pertinent illustration or photo, and Google Bard will always comply with your request.
This is applicable to replies in which there is no clear image to offer, such as when you are seeking for knowledge about various ideas or beliefs. Even if it doesn’t quite strike the point, Google Bard will make an effort to bring up something that is pertinent to the search.
When you look at an image in Bard, it will always have a description and a credit associated with it. If you click on the credit, you will be transported to the place on the internet where the image was originally located. This might be beneficial in determining how helpful or relevant to the topic the information truly is.
Bard does not restrict itself to using just photographs that are free of copyright restrictions or images that have been distributed under a Creative Commons licence. Bard will utilise any image that can be found on the internet. When you navigate through the several draughts that Bard provides, the visuals don’t usually change, even if the wording may be different in each version. This is something that should be taken into consideration.
You may right-click on the photos in Bard’s responses to save them, just as you would with any other online page. In light of this, it is generally a better idea to go through to the page where the image is from, as doing so will typically provide you with a version that has a greater resolution.
Do a Direct Image Search
Bard is capable of directly searching the web for pictures in addition to incorporating photos in the results that it provides, making it very similar to how Google image search works on the web. The only thing that Bard does is locate photographs; it does not generate them in the sense that a programme such as DALL-E does.
You might, then, ask Bard to show you photographs of white flowers, sleeping pets, or a sunset on a beach, for instance. You have the ability to select the amount of photographs you wish to get; however, Bard does not always get this right when you go over 10; for example, it returned 12 images even though I requested for 15 images.
According to the tests that we ran, the photographs are of a usually high quality and are a good fit for the prompts. You are able to be rather detailed, such as “Tom Hanks looking confused” or “a white door in a red wall,” and Bard will try its best to interpret your input. It is obvious, however, that Bard is constrained by the quality of the captioning and tagging that was done on the original photos.
When you do a search that is limited to photographs, you will notice that there is a caption next to each image that provides you with some further information about what it is that you are viewing: For instance, it may include a description of the subject matter seen in the image, or it may provide information on the particular species of plant or animal that is shown in the picture.
Each photo that Google Bard returns comes with a credit label on it, and you can click on this (or elsewhere on the image) to see the original web page and the picture in its original size. This functionality is similar to that which is available for images that are embedded in text results.
We attempted to ask Google Bard for photographs that were expressly licenced under Creative Commons, and it complied with our directions; the majority of the results were obtained from Wikimedia Commons. It is important to keep this in mind in the event that you need to utilise these photographs elsewhere. An additional tip is to search for pictures that are of a certain style, such as “oil painting” or “pixel art.”
The Bard picture search is not significantly more intelligent or helpful than a regular Google image search at this time, and it most certainly comes with fewer alternatives associated to it. This may change in the future, but for the time being, it provides a very helpful additional option for using Bard, whether you are looking for photographs specifically or want them included in your other results.
