OpenAI Search Engine: A New Challenge to Google

Google has been the undisputed leader in search engine technology for years, with a market share of almost 90%. However, it has faced some challenges from Microsoft, which has enhanced its Bing search engine with ChatGPT, an AI-powered chatbot developed by OpenAI. ChatGPT can provide concise and relevant answers to complex questions, using natural language processing and deep learning.

Now, Google may have to deal with another competitor, as OpenAI is rumored to be working on its web search product, according to Gizmodo (via The Information). The sources of this information are anonymous, so it should be treated with caution. The report claims that the new search engine will use Bing as its backbone, which makes sense since Microsoft is OpenAI’s biggest investor, having poured $10 billion into the platform last year.

How will the OpenAI search engine work?

The report does not reveal much about how the OpenAI search engine will function, or whether it will be integrated with ChatGPT or not. However, it suggests that the search engine will have more advanced features than ChatGPT, while also leveraging its ability to generate detailed summaries of information.

This could pose a serious threat to Google, which is currently rolling out Gemini, its own AI chatbot, across all its products. Gemini is based on Google’s Gemini language model, which is similar to ChatGPT, but claims to be more accurate and efficient. Gemini is supposed to improve Google’s search quality and user experience, as well as increase its revenue.

According to TechCrunch, by the end of 2023, ChatGPT had attracted nearly 100 million users per week, which hurt Google’s search revenue, as reported in Alphabet’s quarterly earnings. Alphabet CEO Sundar Pichai expressed his confidence in Google’s search performance and said that “the best is yet to come” in the Gemini era. This implies that Google has some more tricks up its sleeve to counter the competition.

How will the OpenAI search engine affect the chatbot market?

The OpenAI search engine will also have implications for the chatbot market, which is dominated by OpenAI and Google. The two companies have been competing for the title of the best AI chatbot, with their respective models, ChatGPT and Gemini.

In a recent chatbot arena competition, Gemini Pro, the most advanced version of Gemini, came second to GPT-4 Turbo, the latest and most powerful model from OpenAI. The other three spots in the top five were also occupied by OpenAI models, showing the company’s dominance in the field.

Microsoft, which has been collaborating with OpenAI, has also tried to improve its chatbot offerings, by integrating ChatGPT into Bing last year. However, this resulted in some glitches, as some users reported getting strange and irrelevant responses from the chatbot. Microsoft had to limit the length of the chatbot’s replies to avoid further confusion.

The report does not mention when the OpenAI search engine will be launched, or if it will be available to the public. We will keep you posted if we get any more updates on this development. In the meantime, you can check out our latest AI news here.
