Add ChatGPT answers to Google Search
ChatGPT is a new product by OpenAI that is been optimized for dialogs. You communicate with the artificial intelligence, for instance, by asking a question, and get an answer. You can check out Patrick's primer on ChatGPT for a detailed overview.
Several browser extensions have been created in the past days that integrate the functionality on Google Search. The main idea behind these is to add an independent response to a user's query on Google Search. Depending on the query in question, it may work better than Google Search, or not. To give you an example of the latter: a search for "what is Windows 11" returned the answer that "Windows 11 does not exist". The result for the differences between Manifest V2 and V3 were better, even though limited to a single paragraph.
The search for the best screenshot software for Windows returned Snagit as the recommendation.
Not all answers are incorrect on the other hand, especially if there is no right or wrong kind of answer possible. A search for the most famous painter of all time returned Leonardo Da Vinci, for example.
To add ChatGPT to Google Search, go to the official Chrome web browser and hit the "add to " button on the Ooogle.it - ChatGPT Powered Google Search extension page. Once added, visit Google Search and type a query. A ChatGPT powered result is displayed for each query on the search results page.
ChatGPT works only on google.com at the time, and not on Google's localized search pages. The developers have plans to extend the tool to other search engines and sites, but for now, it is limited to Google. The extension is designed for Chrome, but it can be installed in other browsers that are compatible.
Another caveat is that the extension is new. It has a few ratings and reviews, of which some are by the developers,. The publisher claims on the Google Chrome Web Store page that it is not collecting or using data.
ChatGPT is an interesting experiment and the Chrome extension adds another source of information to the results. The results produced by ChatGPT ranged from useless to on the point. In any event, users may want to verify the provided information, but that is true for regular information on search engines as well. The limitation to Google Search may prevent some users from using the tool at this point.
Now You: have you tried ChatGPT? What is your initial impression?
After your last story on this subject I headed over to Openai and started to create an account so I could check out this new chatbot.
After entering my email, creating a password, and entering my real name, they require a phone number to send a verification text. You can not continue without giving it to them. Had I been informed of this requirement beforehand, I never would have started the account creation.
My phone number is personal information that I choose to private. It is of no use to a website other then advertising income.
Thanks for the heads up. That’s absurd. For a bank account ok, but a silly site hell no…
Openai is a site for developers and enthusiasts working with AI that created and hosts the chatbot, not just a “silly site” setup for the chatbot alone.
That still doesn’t justify requiring personal information to sign up.
Thought maybe it was an issue only I was having; when the request came for a mobile phone number, that was the end of an attempt to create an OpenAI account.
What are they doing with all of these phone numbers?
Yeah, it gives the same vibe as those crypto airdrop/scam websites.
The theory is Brady Bunch. There are always those who seek control so the reality is Donald Trump, Vladimir Putin, Xi Jinpin, etc
Horrible for educators. Saw the screenshot where someone asked ChatGPT to write a 500 word essay. It works.
Another example just came through: Write a sonnet about 2023–the result =
In twenty-twenty-three, a world so bright and new
A time of hope and change, a chance to heal
From all pain and struggles that we knew
And build a future that is strong and real
A world where peace and love can thrive and grow
Where all can live and learn and grow in grace
Where justice and equality will flow
And every voice will find a rightful place
A world where science and innovation lead
Where every person is valued and revered
Where progress is made and dreams are freed
And hope and joy are never more deferred
So let us work towards this bright tomorrow
Where all can thrive and love will lead the way
A world of hope, a world without Sorrow
A brighter future for us, come what may.
Okay, not so bad, but it’s not original and if one runs the text through a plagiarism checker, no plagiarism found.
Going to be a big problem for English teachers especially. Even gHacks will be able to write articles and promote a blog using ChatGPT–maybe it already is.
