Google, Part 2
Look, we’ve talked about this already. Technology like ChatGPT isn’t going to replace search engines like Google unless a lot of things change. As I’ve already mentioned, ChatGPT isn’t searching the Internet for answers, so it can’t give you anything that isn’t already in its training set, anything post-2021, and anything that might change, such as current events.
Another thing to keep in mind is how the two make their money. Google’s search engine is free because they can stick links to advertisers in their results. ChatGPT’s format wouldn’t really make that feasible, but as we’ve already said, it can’t be free forever. So unless ChatGPT figures out a way to make money functioning as a search engine, I think Google is okay.
