AI applications are transforming our lives, altering the way we navigate online, influencing our wardrobe decisions, enhancing movie visuals, and even providing a leg up in our career searches. As we plunge deeper into the AI epoch, these high-tech aides are continually evolving, acquiring new talents including the ability to trawl the internet for images.

This exciting feature has just been incorporated into Google Bard, an AI phenomenon that’s gaining momentum in its competition with ChatGPT. Now, just like conducting a regular Google search, you can request images directly from Google Bard. It also has the added edge of delivering images that harmonize with your reading context.

Google’s recent update notifications highlight that images can ‘turn abstract ideas into tangible visuals, boost the conviction behind suggestions, and enrich the user engagement when visuals are desired.’ This means Google Bard is poised to invigorate its textual content with a captivating visual dimension, whether it’s simplifying complex scientific theories or promoting the latest gastronomic delights.

At present, ChatGPT operates solely within the realm of text. While it doesn’t yet venture into visual imagery, this OpenAI bot exhibits its prowess by handling text in various innovative formats, including tables.

Images in Responses: A Picture-Perfect Answer

At present, there isn’t a function in Google Bard to turn images on/off within the usual responses it crafts when I present a question. It seems Bard has an innate intelligence to determine when images could provide extra value to the explanation.

In my own experiences, I’ve found that image-embedded responses often arise when I search for things like top bar destinations, an understanding of how optical illusions function, or when I’ve delved into the history of the first operational aircraft.
