🇪🇺 Google blocks Bard in Europe and Canada

Ben Schoon reporting Google Bard isn’t available in any European Union countries and Canada:

“Of course, being a language model, Bard has no actual answers to give that aren’t public knowledge to start with.”

Looks like Google took the proactive step of avoiding any GDPR controversy and simply not launching its LLM Bard in Europe and Canada at all.

Makes you wonder if this is, long-term, good for Europe?!

Meanwhile, the EU AI Act might be coming for real.
