    All it needs now is some arms and legs.
    Which the Robotics Industry already has ample inventory of. Some retrofitting with this and Hello!

    There are a few AI/chat enhanced search engines already.
    https://you.com/chat
    https://neeva.com/ai

    Neeva seems to require that you have an account to use the enhanced features, but youchat can be used without logging in.

    In my experience it seems that this new way of searching is exactly what we have been missing from Siri, Alexa, Cortana and google etc.
    For some reason these home automation and personal assistants have always been on a different world to chat bots.
    I have always said that more people would talk to their devices, if the devices could have a conversation even like the most basic chat bots that have existed for many years.

    An example of why a chat search can work better than a regular search.
    Search term "Tennessee bakery cornish pasty"
    I Live in Cornwall and my son lives in Tennessee.
    I tried to search for somewhere in Tennessee where my son could buy a Cornish pasty.
    The search engines prioritised my location over the place name used in the search, so gave me results in the UK.
    When using the same 4 words in you.com/chat it took more context from my words, and gave a nice selection of options in Tennessee.

    Since DuckDuckGo uses Bing results anyway, won't it be pretty much the same thing?

    Hmm, you're right about that. Haven't heard of anything official yet. I'm curious now, but I feel like this is inevitable.

    Edit: Well that's that. lol

    Maybe there will be some API to search in "old" way or something.
    I played with ChatGPT and it is impressive. However it produces a lot of wrong answers. Sometimes it is obviously wrong while in other times it is wrong in a quite small, sneak ways. The worst part is writing in authoritative manner.
    I doubt it will replace search engine completely. Maybe they will integrate it in somewhat "hybrid" way - partially "old" way + ChatGPT here and there?

    "China's Answer to ChatGPT Is Called 'Ernie'

    Ernie is short for "Enhanced Representation through Knowledge Integration," and is being developed by Chinese tech company Baidu (best known for its search engine and mapping service)...

    Little is known about Ernie beyond claims it can understand language, generate language, and produce images from text. Eventually, Baidu will integrate Ernie into its search engine, just like Microsoft plans to integrate ChatGPT into Bing..."
