Google CEO Sundar Pichai has confirmed this in an interview. The Wall Street Journal That Google Search will start receiving artificial intelligence elements in upcoming updates to compete with Bing Chat, which Microsoft has been offering to users for some time. Microsoft has also rolled out BingChat for other services, including SwiftKey Beta.
In an interview with WSJ, Pichai said AI will supercharge Google Search’s ability to respond to user requests and said rival chatbots like Bing Chat and ChatGPT are not a threat to Google Search. He went on to say:
“The opportunity space, if anything, is greater than ever. Will people be able to ask Google questions in the context of search and engage with LLM? Absolutely.”
In another recent interview, Pichai said that Google Bard, its creative AI project, will switch to a new large-scale language model (LLM) called PaLM. The Google CEO said that PaLM is a more capable model, and according to Bard, has been shown to be better at certain tasks like code generation and translation while LaMDA is better at question answering and creative writing.
