Google has introduced a new feature in its Bard chatbot, allowing users to generate images using artificial intelligence. This enhancement, based on the Imagen 2 model, enables Bard to create visuals from text prompts, marking a significant advancement in the capabilities of the chatbot.

With Imagen 2 integration, Bard now joins the league of other multimodal chatbots, providing users with a seamless experience to generate images directly within the platform. This move brings Bard closer to competing with established rivals like ChatGPT Plus, which already offers similar functionalities.

The generated images, whether created in Bard or other AI tools by Google, will be marked with a digital watermark called SynthID, ensuring transparency and authenticity. This initiative aligns with Google's commitment to responsible AI development and data safety.

Lumiere’s Space-Time-U-Net architecture allows it to generate the entire video’s temporal duration at once, making video creation and editing more accessible to users without technical expertise.

Additionally, Google has launched ImageFX, an experimental photo tool powered by Imagen 2, allowing users to create images through simple text prompts. ImageFX comes with safety measures, including technical safeguards and prompt-level filters, to prevent the generation of inappropriate or harmful content.

Despite recent controversies surrounding AI-generated images, Google emphasizes its dedication to safety and privacy, implementing measures such as SynthID watermarking and adherence to AI principles.
