ChatGPT: AI powered chatbot

Tech trends: ChatGPT to revolutionize search engine operations?

ChatGPT, a new AI-powered chatbot, has become the latest fad in the dynamic technology industry, founded by a company named OpenAI which has Sam Altman and Elon Musk among others as its founders.

The chatbot has gained a lot of traction of late for its capability to understand human language and provide detailed answers to simple questions. 

The bot is capable of completing tasks such as creating a legal document, writing complex codes and blog pieces as a response to simple questions like - “Write me a blog about the best restaurants in India”.

There are multiple different AI powered chatbots out there, but ChatGPT surpasses most of them for its ability to remember what a user told it before, hence having a personalized touch to its responses. 

ChatGPT also has multitudes of human responses in its repository, mostly taken from how humans interact with each other on social media platforms, and uses it to provide more seamless, human-like responses.

ChatGPT: Microsoft to use chatbot to compete with rival Google

Technology giant Microsoft is planning to incorporate the artificial intelligence software behind ChatGPT into its search engine, Bing, to compete and battle for search engine market share from its rival Google. 

Microsoft plans to use the tools built by artificial intelligence research laboratory OpenAI, which created the ChatGPT service, to offer human-like answers to queries typed into its search engines rather than provide a list of websites as it does currently. 

Bing accounted for just 9% of the global search market in 2022, according to data from Statistica – well behind Google’s 83% dominance over the same period.
