Google has rolled out further improvements to Bard, including better math skills, Engadget reports. Bard will no longer rely solely on big language models, which are best for predictions rather than solving complex problems. Instead, it should now determine when additional processing can help and then generate background code to improve correctness.
According to Google, this update has increased the accuracy of calculation-based word and math problems in their internal challenge datasets by 30%.
The tech giant claims that Bard should be able to provide information such as simple odds of numbers in the millions, the rate of increase in savings, and what words like “lollipop” look like in reverse (this is the strongest weapon the tool has against the competition).
Google also announced a feature that allows the data Bard produces to be edited and manipulated in Sheets. This is the perfect update for people who hate spreadsheets.
