The arrival of Google’s conversational artificial intelligence in Finland and the EU region is still open. The recent mistake has not reduced the confusion.
Many netizens rubbed their eyes when they saw the list of countries where Google’s Bard artificial intelligence was implemented. That is, the Åland Islands, in English, have been added to the group. However, not Finland.
Google said last week that its conversational artificial intelligence Bard would be in more extensive test use than previously thought. Now its conversational artificial intelligence can currently be used in more than 180 countries and/or territories in three languages.
Bard is asked questions in natural language just like other people and artificial intelligence chats like a human and answers. Google said it would also bring a conversational artificial intelligence to its search engine, but not Bard in its current form.

Google said last week that Finnish would also be one of the languages to be supported later.
There has been a stir when Aaland’s name appears in the list. Google didn’t mention other EU regions or countries.
This has fueled speculation about the Bard’s future in Europe. According to the wildest estimates, artificial intelligence will not be brought to Europe at all due to privacy concerns.
The assumption is wrong. According to Google, the listing of Åland is a mistake.
The company’s plans still include bringing Bard to the EU, but the schedule is still open. Since the technology is new, it is introduced in stages. According to the company, the schedule for the introduction of unfinished technology is also affected by responsibility.
The answers given by the artificial intelligence search engine to its users have created a lot of buzz. ChatGPT, Microsoft’s Bing and Snapchat’s chatbots based on it, as well as Google’s Bard have both given their users very specific – and even annoying – answers.
