Google, one of the world’s leading search engines, has announced plans to incorporate a new feature into its platform: ChatGPT. This move comes as Google looks to stay ahead in the race for artificial intelligence (AI) technology and to combat the threat it has faced since the launch of the iPhone.
Google is known for being an active search engine that constantly looks to improve and facilitate its users. The company’s mission is to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful. With this latest addition, Google aims to take this mission to the next level.
According to the company, it is making a significant investment in technology, cutting jobs in its AI sector, and accelerating AI development. This year, Google is reportedly preparing to propose at least 20 AI-powered products, including a chatbot for its search engine.
ChatGPT is a state-of-the-art AI-powered chatbot that can answer questions about topics related to political science and computer programming with detailed explanations. The chatbot’s ability to provide users with the information they are looking for in an easy-to-understand format has taken the tech world by storm.
Moreover, Google is also working on other AI-powered products such as an image generation tool, an upgraded version of AI test kitchen, a TikTok-style green screen mode for YouTube, and a tool that can generate videos to summarize other clips.
However, incorporating ChatGPT into Google’s search engine also brings challenges such as ensuring safety, accuracy, and blocking out misinformation. Safety, accuracy, and blocking out misinformation are important to bring into consideration while incorporating ChatGPT as a tool.
Additionally, Google faces risks such as copyright, privacy, and antitrust in relation to AI technology. Over the last few years, Google has faced backlash against its handling of AI ethics.
The two main AI ethics researchers, Timnit Gebru and Margaret Mitchell, have accused Google of censoring research that criticizes AI language-learning models.
Despite these challenges, Google’s CEO Sundar Pichai has stated that the company is prepared to approach the incorporation of ChatGPT into its search engine “boldly and responsibly.” Google’s incorporation of ChatGPT is set to revolutionize the search experience for users and keep the competition on their toes.
