VIE Between Google And Microsoft- Who Win Could Change How We Use Internet
Since 1990, search engines have been a major part of our online life, nothing is possible without search engines. This search engine was formed when the world wide web growth created a need to sort and present information to answer the questions of their users.
At first, it was very easy to do the search or find information related to your queries. It was just like the visit to your local supermarket: you knew the roads, where to turn off, and how to get there. But with time, the exponential growth of online users made it impossible for people to remember where they would find the exact information they want.
At that time search engines came that solved many problems and categorize the information based on queries you sent.
In 2000, google became the world’s largest search engine. And suddenly the company became synonymous with search.
Google is the product of tech giant google. The first-time people get to see this app is in 2008, the time when it was released. 2008 was the time when browser technology was still under development but this beauty get its path and reached its users. Google Chrome started at only one percent of the market share and now you can see it’s on the top list of most used browsers. Google Chrome made its place itself.
In 2023, the name of the google search engine is in danger. The rise of ChatGPT is very quick and significant since its release in November 2022. Microsoft has invested about $10bn into ChartGPT’s creator, Open-Al, and in return, they get the rights to use the fancified version of the technology in its search engine, BING.
In response, Google has announced its own chat-enabled search tool, which is named Bard which is designed to head off the enemy at the gates.
Both Google and Microsoft are not working properly. Both made embarrassingly elementary mistakes in their much-hyped public demos.
If we talk about now then it seems that google and Microsoft soon propel the chat- enables search engine down our throats because they both eagerly want the fame of being the first to this technology. But now, Microsoft is already having second thoughts about the rollout. William Wang, who is the director of the Center for Responsible Machine Learning at the University of California said that:
‘’ I think ChatGPT is good for complex queries that there are no direct answers and summaries would be very beneficial’’.
Wang has the mindset that the interface we are experiencing right now is just the start, soon things will go to the better side. These thoughts were just Wang’s in fact others are not even sure if the search is the right use for chat-based LLMs.
There is another associate professor in Al at New York University who said that ‘’thinking of them as a new form of search is just wrong’’. he suggested that we should take the chance and take all the decisions on how the technology is used out of the hands of Al researchers or tech executives and give it into the hands of ordinary users to see what they develop.
