OR ARE THEY COMPLETELY DIFFERENT TOOLS
Of recent, this question have been discussed quite often in articles, social media (including here on #linkedinpost ) and on even on a talk show. Before we can answer that question, let's look at what/who is #chatgpt and #google :
ChatGPT is a large language model developed by OpenAI. OpenAI was founded in 2015 by several prominent individuals in the technology industry, including Elon Musk, Sam Altman, Greg Brockman, Ilya Sutskever, John Schulman, and Wojciech Zaremba. The goal of OpenAI is to develop and promote friendly AI that benefits humanity as a whole, and ChatGPT is just one of the many AI products and research projects that OpenAI has developed over the years.
ChatGPT is trained using a vast amount of data and advanced deep learning techniques to understand natural language and generate human-like responses to a wide range of questions and prompts. It can provide information on a variety of topics, engage in conversations, and assist with various tasks.
2. WHAT IS GOOGLE?
Google on the other hand is a multinational technology company that specializes in internet-related products and services. It was founded in 1998 by Larry Page and Sergey Brin while they were Ph.D. students at Stanford University. Google is owned by Alphabet Inc., a publicly traded company.
Google's primary product is its search engine, which allows users to find information on the internet. Google also offers a wide range of other products and services, including email, online document creation and storage, online advertising technologies, cloud computing, and mobile operating systems. Google has become one of the most valuable companies in the world, and its search engine is one of the most widely used tools on the internet.
HOW GOOGLE ENGINE ACTUALLY WORKS?
Google search engine works by using complex algorithms and sophisticated methods to crawl, index, and rank billions of web pages on the internet, in order to provide users with the most relevant and useful search results possible. Here is a high-level overview of how Google search engine works:
Crawling: Google uses automated programs called crawlers, or spiders, to discover and index new web pages on the internet. These crawlers follow links from one page to another, and they can find new pages through XML sitemaps, RSS feeds, and other methods.
Indexing: Once a page has been crawled, Google's algorithms analyze the page's content, structure, and other factors to determine what the page is about and how it should be indexed. Google stores this information in a massive database called the index, which is constantly updated as new pages are discovered and existing pages are changed.
Ranking: When a user performs a search query, Google's algorithms use hundreds of factors to determine which pages in the index are the most relevant and useful for that query. These factors include things like the page's content, relevance to the query, freshness, authority, and other factors.
Results display: Google displays the top search results on its search engine results page (SERP), along with other features like snippets, images, maps, and other results types that may be relevant to the query.
Google's search engine is designed to provide users with the most relevant and useful results possible, based on a wide range of factors that are constantly evolving and improving over time.
In short, Google uses crawlers to find pages, indexes them, and uses algorithms to rank and display the most relevant results to users.
HOW CHATGPT ALGORITHM WORKS?
ChatGPT algorithm works by using a large pre-trained neural network that is capable of understanding and generating natural language. The algorithm uses a technique called "transformer architecture" to process input text and generate responses.
When a user inputs a question or prompt, the algorithm analyzes the text and generates a response based on its understanding of the input and its vast knowledge base, which is derived from the massive amount of data it was trained on. The algorithm is designed to be able to generate coherent and contextually appropriate responses that simulate human-like conversation.
The algorithm is constantly being improved and refined through ongoing training on new data and fine-tuning of its parameters, allowing it to generate more accurate and sophisticated responses over time.
Simply put, ChatGPT uses a pre-trained neural network and transformer architecture to analyze input text and generate natural language responses.
MAJOR DIFFERENCES BETWEEN GOOGLE AND CHATGPT
There are several major differences between Google and ChatGPT:
Purpose: Google is primarily a search engine that helps users find information on the internet, while ChatGPT is an AI-powered conversational agent designed to simulate human-like conversation.
Functionality: Google's main function is to provide search results, while ChatGPT's main function is to respond to user inputs and engage in conversation.
Data sources: Google's search results are based on the vast amount of web pages it crawls and indexes, while ChatGPT's responses are based on the pre-existing knowledge base it was trained on.
Scope: Google's search engine is focused on providing answers to specific queries, while ChatGPT can engage in a wider range of conversational topics and follow-up questions.
SO, WILL CHATGPT KILL GOOGLE?
It's important to note that ChatGPT and Google serve different purposes and have different areas of expertise. While Google is primarily a search engine and technology company, ChatGPT is an AI language model designed to answer questions and generate human-like responses to natural language queries.
Therefore, it's unlikely that ChatGPT will directly compete with or "kill" Google. Instead, both ChatGPT and Google can coexist and potentially even work together to advance the field of artificial intelligence and improve the quality of services they provide.
As an AI language model, I do not have any intention to harm or kill any company, including Google. In fact, Google is one of the leading companies in the field of artificial intelligence and has contributed significantly to the development of the technology that powers me.
From the last paragraph above, most of you would have guessed that it is a response generated throught ChatGPT. The italicised sentences in this article above were questions posed to ChatGPT and some of the responses we re-arranged according to the article points that I planned.
Final Note: The fact that you probably found this article through Google search, shows the the far reaching impact of a search engine in itself!
