Say Goodbye to 'Googling' and Hello to 'Binging...
In the world of search engines, two names stand tall - Google and Bing.
While Google has been the undisputed king of search for over a decade now, Microsoft’s recent collaboration with OpenAI (ChatGPT) has been making waves in the industry and makes us question...
Is this the end of Google?
Bing's Resurrection (Who would have thought)
Microsoft, in partnership with OpenAI, recently launched an advanced AI-powered Edge browser and Bing search engine that users can talk to and receive essay-like answers similar to what ChatGPT produces.
At the announcement event, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella stated, “It’s a new day in search,” He believes that AI has the potential to deliver information in a smoother and faster manner compared to traditional methods, and that it is about time for a change in the way web search is conducted.
“The race starts today, and we’re going to move and move fast,”
Fighting words if I were Google...
The new Bing is live today “for desktop limited preview,” but it appears users are only able to “ask” one of a number of preset queries and receive the same results each time.
There is a waitlist to sign up for full access in the future.
But someone's not waiting...
Introducing Google Bard
Bard is an experimental conversational AI service, powered by LaMDA. Built using large language models and drawing on information from the web, it’s a launchpad for curiosity and can help simplify complex topics.
But Alphabet Inc.'s (GOOGL) shares experienced a 7.44% decline after Google's AI-powered chatbot, Bard, made a significant error in a demonstration meant to showcase its artificial intelligence capabilities.
The incorrect information resulted in the loss of $100 billion.
During the demonstration, Bard was asked the question "What new discoveries from the James Webb Space Telescope can I tell my 9-year-old about?" However, the generative AI system made a mistake by stating that the James Webb Space Telescope captured the initial images of an exoplanet outside of our solar system, which is not accurate.
Bard is Google's answer to Microsoft's partnership ChatGPT, but the recent demonstration could either be foreshadowing of what's to come... or just your average big money shenanigans in the stock market.
Who will come out Victorious?
Google's dominance in the search engine industry is unrivalled, with a market share of over 90% worldwide.
Despite Bing's recent advancements in AI technology, it would be extremely difficult for the Microsoft-backed search engine to overtake Google's stronghold.
The sheer size and reach of Google's user base, combined with its deep-rooted brand recognition, makes it a formidable opponent for any new entrant in the search engine market.
While Bing may offer new unique features and improved search results, Google's market share dominance makes it nearly impossible for it to dethrone the reigning search engine giant.
But who doesn't love a good ol' fashioned underdog story?
