Many experts predict the death of classic search engines, in particular the super popular Google, due to the rapid development of chatbots based on neural networks. Paul Buckheit, standing near the origins of Gmail, thinks the same.
In his tweet, Paul made a prediction according to which he measured only a few years for Google, after which the company will begin to rapidly lose business. Buckheit simply gave an example of how comprehensively and “humanly” ChatGPT can answer user questions, unlike Google. The expert will offer to compare the answers of the two systems to the question: “How to visualize a differential equation in LaTeX?”.
In addition, the expert believes that even if Google uses AI algorithms in its search engine, it will still lose money, because the company will have to significantly rework all its products, which does not guarantee success in the future.
Analysts already note that many people do not turn their questions to search engines, but rather to the ChatGPT chatbot. Especially if they need to get some clarification, and not just search for stores or products. After all, ChatGPT answers questions in a conversational and understandable style, and also allows you to ask a person clarifying questions without losing the context of the conversation.
By the way, Microsoft has already announced that it is actively implementing AI in its search engine and is investing $10 billion in OpenAI, which is the creator and developer of ChatGPT.
