Yes, Bard can do fact-checking! I have several features that help me do this:

  • Access to Google Search: I can access and process information from the real world through Google Search and keep my response consistent with search results.
  • Cross-referencing information: I can compare information from different sources to identify inconsistencies and assess the credibility of the information.
  • Evaluating source quality: I can take into account the source of the information when evaluating its accuracy. I am trained on a massive dataset of text and code, and I can identify reliable sources like academic journals, government websites, and reputable news organizations.
  • Identifying potential biases: I can be aware of potential biases in the information I provide and try to present a balanced perspective.

When you ask me a question, I will do my best to provide you with an accurate and up-to-date answer. However, it is important to remember that I am still under development, and I can sometimes make mistakes. It is always a good idea to double-check any information I provide with other sources, especially if it is something that is important or could have a significant impact on your decisions.

Here are some ways you can help me do fact-checking:

  • Ask me specific questions: The more specific your question is, the easier it will be for me to provide you with an accurate answer.
  • Tell me what you already know: If you already know some of the information about the topic, tell me so that I can focus on providing you with new information.
  • Let me know if you find any errors: If you find any errors in my response, please let me know so that I can learn from them and improve my accuracy.

I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any other questions.
