Η μηχανή αναζήτησης DuckDuckGo ακολούθησε τη Microsoft και την Google με την υιοθέτηση της τεχνητής νοημοσύνης. Η εταιρεία ανακοίνωσε σήμερα την κυκλοφορία μιας beta λειτουργίας με τεχνητή νοημοσύνη, που ονομάζεται DuckAssist, και μπορεί να απαντήσει άμεσα σε απλά ερωτήματα αναζήτησης για τους χρήστες.
DDG says it will use OpenAI's ChatGPT technology and Anthropic, an AI startup founded by former OpenAI employees, to power the search capability, combined with its own active indexing of Wikipedia and other sites it uses in her sources (Encyclopedia Britannia is another source she uses).
Founder Gabe Weinberg he told TechCrunch that the sources he uses for DuckAssist are – currently – “99%+ Wikipedia”. However, he says the company is "experimenting with how the integration of other sources could work and how to use them."
At launch, DuckAssist is only available through DDG's apps and browser extensions – but the company says it plans to roll it out to all users in the coming weeks.
The beta feature is free to use and does not require the user to be logged in to access it. It is currently only available in English.
According to Weinberg, the AI models DDG uses (“currently”) to power search are: OpenAI's Davinci model and Anthropic's Claude model. He also notes that DDG is "experimenting" with OpenAI's new Turbo model that was recently announced.
