Reportedly, Google has begun making its chatbot Bard available to the public in the US and the UK. Previously, the program was only accessible to approved testers. Bard is an experiment that uses generative AI, which relies on past data to create content rather than identify it. The release of Microsoft (MSFT)-backed startup OpenAI’s ChatGPT chatbot last year has spurred competition in the tech industry to bring AI to more users in order to transform how people work and win business.
During a demo of Bard, Google warned that accuracy might still be an issue and that the program would not always provide correct answers. This comes after a promotional video for Bard was released last month, which showed the program giving an incorrect answer to a question. As a result, Alphabet’s market value dropped by $100 billion. This highlights the ongoing challenge of ensuring that AI technology is reliable and accurate, which remains a major concern for both Google and Microsoft as they compete to lead the field of artificial intelligence.

On Monday, March 20, INVO Bioscience (NASDAQ: INVO) announced that it has signed binding agreements to acquire a materially transformative acquisition of the Wisconsin Fertility Institute. The Madison-based fertility center primarily offers conventional IVF procedures and generated approximately $5.5 million in revenue and net income of approximately $1.9 million for the trailing 12-month period ended September 30, 2022.
Wisconsin Fertility Institute is led by internationally renowned and well-respected fertility expert, Dr. Elizabeth Pritts, who will continue to serve as the clinic’s lead physician for a minimum period of three years from the closing of the acquisition. Dual-certified in General Obstetrics and Gynecology, as well as Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility, Dr. Pritts completed a surgical fellowship in Advanced Gynecologic Laparoscopy and Hysteroscopy. She is also a national leader in the use of robotic surgery for gynecologic disorders. Dr. Pritts served as an assistant professor in reproductive endocrinology and infertility at the University of Wisconsin Medical School, as a clinical fellow at the University of California at San Francisco, and as an instructor at Yale University School of Medicine. She has authored more than 70 articles for scientific publications and has lectured throughout the world on reproduction and fertility.
Dr. Elizabeth Pritts, M.D., Wisconsin Fertility Institute’s Co-founder
“I’m excited to be teaming up with INVO as a unique and attractive partner to help advance us to the next phase of our practice. INVO’s commercial strategy and patient focus, along with its public-company platform and the INVOcell technology itself, offers an exciting pathway to build value and increase access to an efficient, effective, affordable, and connected experience in reproductive treatment. Our team looks forward to being an integral part of INVO’s long-term growth and success.” Dr. Elizabeth Pritts, Wisconsin Fertility Institute’s co-founder.
Wisconsin Fertility Institute joins INVO’s expanding list of fertility clinics, including operating clinics in Atlanta (Bloom Fertility), Birmingham (Innovative Fertility Specialists) and Monterrey, Mexico (Positib Fertility), as well as future clinics under development, such as the wholly owned INVO Center in Tampa, Florida that is currently under construction. INVO’s revolutionary medical device, the INVOcell, allows fertilization and early embryo development to occur in vivo with the woman’s body and is also available at a growing list of non-affiliated fertility centers in the United States and around the world.
