Google LLC is reportedly in panic mode over the potential threat posed by OpenAI Inc.’s ChatGPT model to its dominance of internet search.
The company is responding by massively expanding efforts to close the technological gap between its own artificial intelligence capabilities and those of ChatGPT, which is an advanced chatbot that can churn out some impressive conversational responses to questions.
The concern for Google is that ChatGPT could eventually emerge as an alternative to Google Search. Although Google executives are publicly cautious on the idea of introducing new AI features, a recent report from the New York Times claims that the company sees the emergence of generative AI tools like ChatGPT as a “code red” threat to its status as the internet’s No. 1 search portal.
