ChatGPT against Google

The days of PageRank and site popularity indexes seem over: ChatGPT answers all your questions with intelligence.

(Disclaimer: This page was partially written by ChatGPT).

A red alert has been issued at Google: the two founders who had been in withdrawal for years returned to the office and launched twenty artificial intelligence projects. The threat of ChatGPT in free access since November 2022 has shaken the company, because this technology once implemented in Bing, could make it the search engine of choice for Internet users at the expense of Google.

What is ChatGPT?

ChatGPT is a large language model developed by OpenAI that is trained on a massive dataset of conversational text. It is capable of understanding and responding to natural language inputs, and can be used for a variety of tasks such as language translation, question answering, and text generation.

For anyone who goes to the web to find an answer to a question, it's like an intelligent robot that's on hand to give you the answer. And it's not just Google that is challenged by this revolution, schools and universities are worried about seeing students have their essays and other homework done by this artificial intelligence.

What is the meaning of GPT in ChatGPT

GPT-3 (Generative Pre-trained Transformer 3) is a language generation model developed by OpenAI. It is one of the most advanced language models currently available, with 175 billion parameters. GPT-3 can generate human-like text and is trained on a diverse range of internet text, allowing it to perform a variety of natural language processing tasks such as language translation, summarization, and question answering.

Sample of ChatGPT answers

I wondered if chatGPT knows what the Scriptol programming language is...

Scriptol for ChatGPT

Google's answer to the same question:

Scriptol for Google

The difference is that Google provides links to the site Sometimes you may also have a list of frequently asked questions extracted from websites but not a answer made by Google.

This is the main problem for webmasters: ChatGPT concocting direct answers to requests, the sites that provide the answers are no longer visited by Internet users and this threatens activity on the Internet. If the sites go away, ChatGPT will run out of resources to update itself!

I also wondered what ChatGPT would have to say on a more technical question...

Walking android for ChatGPT

The answer is rather vague. Having the components and connecting them seems like a no-brainer to me.

Google's answer:

Walking android for Google

The advantage to provide links is that Google may link to relevant Youtube videos. Not a real answer by the way.

You will certainly have to ask more specific questions to get a good answer...

Is ChatGPT a threat to Google?

Microsoft has invested a billion dollars in OpenAI. On January 23, 2023, it added an investment of $10 billion. Certainly Microsoft, and this has been expressed by its CEO, wants every one of its products - this includes Google's competitor Bing - to use artificial intelligence tools in the future.
Microsoft laid off 10,000 people in this prospect.

Microsoft may have a variety of plans for using ChatGPT, as it is a powerful language generation model that can be applied to a wide range of tasks. Some potential uses for ChatGPT could include natural language understanding, text generation, language translation, and more. However, without more specific information from Microsoft, it is difficult to say for certain what their plans are for the model.

ChatGPT is a language model developed by OpenAI, it's not a treat for Google. It is a technology that can be used to generate human-like text and can be integrated into various applications such as chatbots, virtual assistants, and automated writing. It is not in direct competition with Google but it is a powerful tool that can be used to improve natural language processing capabilities in various applications. Google has also its own version called LaMDA (Language Model for Dialogue Applications), but not publicly used for now.

Yes, you can use ChatGPT to generate text, answer questions, and provide information, similar to what you can do with a search engine like Google. However, ChatGPT is a language model and may not have access to the same breadth of information as a search engine. Additionally, ChatGPT's responses are generated based on patterns it has seen in the text it was trained on, so its responses may not always be accurate or up-to-date.

To test ChatGPT yourself, you need to register on the site:

Then to start questioning the robot, you will have to pass two captcha screens intended to block bots, not practical for daily use like that of Google, but not prohibitive to help in documentation work. It can also happen that the server is overloaded and denies you access.

ChatGPT has also been integrated with Bing, which has caused a massive increase in traffic. To access it, create a microsoft account, join the waiting list, and when you receive the welcome notification (this can take days), visit Bing after logging in.
