Google Bard is the latest AI chatbot to hit the internet, currently in its experimental phase. The Chatbot is open to those who join the waitlist and is currently free to try.

We recently looked into whether or not Google Bard can be detected by Turnitin, the popular plagiarism tool used in academia. the results were a bit suspect, despite Turnitin stating they had developed technology to detect AI-assisted content, we still expected to see lower numbers from the Google Bard AI.

The service has recently been called into question after allegedly plagiarizing an article from Toms Hardware.
