undefinedGoogle announces Bard AI chatbot can now answer questions about YouTube videos
Google has announced that its Bard AI chatbot can now answer specific questions related to YouTube video content. While Bard already had the ability to analyze YouTube videos when the YouTube extension launched last September, the chatbot can now provide you with answers to specific queries about video content .
"We're taking the first steps towards Bard understanding YouTube videos," the company wrote on the Bard update page. "For example, if you're looking for a video on how to make an olive oil cake, you can now also ask for a recipe from the first video. How many eggs. We hear you want deeper engagement with your YouTube videos. So we're extending the YouTube extension to understand some video content so you can have richer conversations with Bard."
Before this latest update, Bard's YouTube extension was only useful for finding specific videos. For example, you can ask the chatbot to find interesting videos for you. Now you can ask the chatbot specific questions about the video content. Say you're watching a travel video and see a place you really like, you can ask Bard where this place is.
The announcement comes two weeks after YouTube began experimenting with new generative AI features including an AI conversation tool for YouTube content , in addition to launching a new feature that summarizes topics in video comments.
Conversation tool responses are generated by large language models that leverage information from YouTube and the web. Users can ask questions about the video they are watching, and a conversation with the AI will take place simultaneously as the video plays. The review summarization tool uses generative AI to organize discussion topics in the review section, giving users an overview of what people are saying.
The update also comes as Google opens Bard access to teenagers in most countries around the world. The search giant said in a blog post that teens can use the tool to "find inspiration, discover new hobbies, and solve everyday problems." Teens can ask Bard about important topics like which colleges to apply to, or more interesting topics like how to study a subject. new movement.
