In the race for AI, Google’s AI ChatBot Bard has received another ability to help developers write, generate, debug, and explain code. The large language model, Conversation AI, or ChatBot, is comprehensively trained on a large amount of text data. It can respond to a search query in natural language. This is quite a useful feature for beginners and experienced programmers as it gives a code prototype or debugs complex code. Google Bard is only available in the US and UK since March, and recently the same functionality AI was released by Microsoft with the release of GitHub Co-Pilot.

The company says this is one of the most requested features, and rivals like ChatGPT and Bing AI have supported Code Generation since its launch. This is a major upgrade with a new set of skills added to respond to the user’s query, translate code from one language to another, and also cite the source. Google Bard is a great way to learn code step-by-step. It supports more than 20 programming languages, which include C++, Go, Java, JavaScript, Python, and TypeScript.

To use this feature, you just need to type your code in Bard, and it will generate code for you. You can use Google Bard to debug code to fix any errors and to write code. Google Bard adds code generation and debugging capabilities. This is currently in the early stages of development, which means developers can’t rely on AI to write or debug code, translate code from one language to another, and also use it to explain lines of code. It could be a valuable tool to save some developers time and also allow developers to better understand the code and also the debugging and learning of new programming languages.

Google's Bard AI chatbot can now write, generate, debug, and explain code to help you code and create functions for Google Sheets, just like ChatGPT could all along.

Developers can also export Python code to Google Colab, which makes it easier for anyone working on code to collaborate on projects. Apart from this, Google Bard can also be used to help functions of Sheets, and Bard also quotes the source from existing open-source projects. You can also ask it to explain lines of code, and it will explain the code within the GitHub Repo. If this seems familiar, then it’s the same approach that Microsoft CoPilot for GitHub does.

Google Bard isn’t perfect, It may have inaccuracies or misleading information

We advise you to double-check the program shown by Google. Sometimes the code could be wrong as it is still under development. It is just a tool to improve productivity and save some time to spend more time on the core code of the project you have been working on. If you aren’t familiar with the language or the framework, then Bard could be a lifesaver in such cases when developers are working on complex projects.

While testing, this doesn’t work as it only gives a response to the user’s query and sometimes an incomplete code or doesn’t produce the expected output. Google Bard recently received the Maths and Logic Enhancement update, and with the code generation, it pushes developers to experiment in a variety of ways. Review the code before submitting, and it does have some limitations while using this. Developers should be aware of these errors. These new capabilities are quite useful for both beginner and experienced programmers to learn how to code with every step of instruction.

With this, you can quickly get a prototype code or debug complex codes. A lot of things that require automation and unit tests or code generation make it easier for data scientists to machine learning models. Google is working on improving Google Bard, and this isn’t going to replace the human programmer anytime soon. The company is also facing some challenges with the release of Bard.

Google hasn’t addressed the concerns raised by Google employees and the public, which could also lead to damage to the reputation of Bard and Google itself. Google employees are saying it’s a pathological liar and aren’t ready for real-world testing, and that’s the truth. Google’s Bard is less accurate than its rivals like OpenAI and Microsoft Bing. Google is working on Bard to improve and become more accurate and reliable in the future. We’re just saying to be aware of its limitations and use it safely and effectively.
