The tech giant believes the future of search is conversational. How did it let OpenAI’s ChatGPT take the lead?
Sounds like google is having a kodak moment
Maybe Google should ask ChatGPT where and how they put the ads?
Innovation is likely to sort out the problem of where to put the ads: At the side. Hyperlinks in text. A bigger problem is the uniqueness of the AI technology. If we suddenly have five equally good search engines, the cost of advertising will plummet
I still watch
Companies like Stack Overflow & Quora might have the most reason to be concerned... They have filled Google's gaps in certain areas, and ChatGPT seems to nail their use cases.
ChatGBT is too vague cannot scour into net except for the garbage text in it.
Google could have opened up Lamda through Google Brain as a “research” or “Beta” project. In fact, it still can. Opening it through a subsidiary could distance the bot answers from Google, thus preserving Google’s reputation.
It’s ironic how they’ve tried to launch so many products in different verticals to experiment, yet chose to be conservative when it came to their primary product (Search).
Yep. Google doesn’t want this. But if Google releases one that has no censor and can scan the net, then Google would win, because it’s annoying that it can’t check the internet. People want that.
huh? what's backing the claim that google's LaMDA is in a league of its own? like i dont doubt it given their breadth, but the assertion seems unfounded. also ngl kinda wild to describe google's product launches as deliberate and careful and conservative??! like...they have the reputation for doing exactly NOT that lol https://killedbygoogle.com/
Reg. the business model challenge, I think Google will launch a subscription version of the product which it could use to charge users similar to how it has done for Youtube.
