The creator of Gmail has made a prediction: the new chatbot ChatGPT will completely disrupt Google's business within a year or two, eliminating the search engine result page in the process.

  • ChatGPT: By now, you have probably come across a number of creations from ChatGPT: an artificial intelligence (AI) based chatbot that can do everything from rewrite "Baby Got Back" in the style of Canterbury Tales to simulating its own chatbot within a chatbot.
    • The chatbot, made open to the public last week, is surprisingly good.  Even if it hasn't yet convinced anyone that it's sentient – unlike Google's AI .
    • The bot has a number of uses, including writing useable code and looking for errors in code created by amateur humans.
  • The chatbot uses something called "reinforcement learning from human feedback" to achieve the impressive natural language processing it does.  "As the model receives more and more feedback, it uses this information to adjust its internal parameters and improve its performance. This iterative process continues until the model reaches a satisfactory level of performance on the task," the bot continued.
  • Disrupt Google? As well as providing more detailed results than Google, and explaining answers in a more natural way (as seen above), the problem for Google is ChatGPT could eliminate the need for its moneymaker: the search results page.
