Battle of the Brains: Chat GPT Takes on Google Search in AI Showdown

In a head-to-head competition, which tool reigns supreme: Chat GPT or Google? As artificial intelligence continues to evolve and get more advanced, there is a growing interest in how chatbots and vocabulary models like Chat GPT stack up against traditional search engines like Google.

To put these two systems to the test, researchers at Preply conducted a study to compare the performance of Chat GPT and Google Search in answering various types of questions. The researchers found that while both systems had their strengths and weaknesses, Chat GPT was able to provide more accurate and relevant answers to a wider range of questions than Google Search when comparing the total 40 questions. Though the scale of this study was very small, yet, Google was declared winner on 16 answers while ChatGPT was leading the race on 23 queries while there was tie on just 1 question.

Chat GPT is an artificial intellect language model that uses machine learning to understand natural vocabulary and generate responses to a wide range of questions. It was trained on a massive dataset of text from the WWW and other sources and can be utilized to answer questions, provide recommendations, or engage in casual conversation.

In the study, the researchers sampled both AI and Google Search on a variety of inquiry types, including factual questions, opinion-based inquiries, and questions that required more nuanced or contextual understanding. They found that Chat GPT was able to provide more accurate answers to factual questions, and was better able to understand and respond to questions that required contextual understanding.

For example, when asked 'Is God real?', 'What is the meaning of life?', & 'How to boil eggs?', then Open AI's tool gave more clearer and concise answers as compared to Google.

While Google Search still outperformed Chat GPT in certain areas, such as providing quick and simple answers to straightforward questions, the researchers noted that Chat GPT's ability to provide more detailed and accurate answers to a wider range of questions made it a promising alternative to traditional search engines.

As the field of artificial intelligence continues to evolve, the potential applications for language models like Chat GPT are becoming increasingly clear. From virtual assistants and chatbots to recommendation systems and personalized tracking engines, there are a variety of ways that these advanced language models can be used to improve the way we interact with technology and access information.

It makes sense that Chat GPT would lose when answering time-exposed queries because the data set used to train it is only dated through 2021. However, as we already noted, that disadvantage didn't prevent it from outperforming the venerable Google search on the whole.

Naturally, Alphabet is currently exerting significant pressure on the Bard. Microsoft funded early in Open AI, so its capabilities are already seen in Bing search engine previews. Additionally, Open AI-assisted Bing is fully current and does not only use data that has been crawled up to 2022. Even sources will be cited, something Chat GPT does not do (but should). It won't even be hindered by Open AI's sluggish servers. Alphabet has been shaken by all of these causes.

While the debate over which search engine is smarter may never be fully resolved, the study suggests that Chat GPT is a powerful tool that has the potential to revolutionize the way we search for and access information in the years to come. However, it's important to note that ChatGPT and the search engine that it backs Bing is still churning out several misinformed and factually incorrect data points for the vast majority of users.
