ChatGPT has the potential to destroy Google in a year or two at most, according to Gmail creator Paul Buccheit. Buccheit believes that ChatGPT will eliminate Google’s most profitable product, aka Search, and that even if the global search engine giant catches up on artificial intelligence, it will be unable to fully deploy it without destroying the most valuable part of its business.
Since its release in November 2022, OpenAI’s Chat Generative Pre-trained Transformer, or ChatGPT, has been the talk of the town. It’s essentially a chatbot prototype that uses AI to understand and respond to text. The real kicker is that it’s designed to converse naturally – a domain long thought to be a Google forte – and so far, the results have been amazing, even surreal, leading to a meteoric rise in usage globally while giving OpenAI enough confidence to now—also—explore a paid version.
