Google AI: Google plans to update search with AI chat, video clips: report

Google plans to make its search engine more “visual, usable, personal and human” with a focus on serving young people around the world, the Wall Street Journal reported Saturday, citing documents.

The move comes as artificial intelligence (AI) applications like ChatGPT are rapidly gaining popularity, highlighting a technology that could change the way businesses and society operate.

The report says the tech giant will be moving its service away from the “10 blue links” that are the traditional format for presenting search results, and plans to include more human voices as part of the transition.

At its annual I/O Developers Conference next week, Google is expected to unveil new features that allow users to have a conversation with the artificial intelligence program, a project codenamed “Magi”. WSJ he added, referring to people familiar with this.

Generative AI has become a buzzword this year as apps have captured the public’s imagination and sparked a buzz among companies to produce similar products that they think will change the nature of work.

Google, part of Alphabet Inc., did not immediately respond to a Reuters request for comment.
