The launch of ChatGPT by OpenAI sparked a debate on the internet about its potential impact on Google’s dominance. Some even went as far as to predict that the advanced chatbot could replace Google in just a few short years, causing the company to go out of business. While the technology behind OpenAI is undoubtedly impressive, it’s essential to consider whether it can surpass the intelligence and capabilities of a search giant like Google.
Preply, an e-learning company, conducted an extensive analysis to compare the performance of ChatGPT and Google Search and determine which is more advanced.
ChatGPT vs. Google: The Battle for Artificial Intelligence Supremacy
The research team posed 40 carefully selected questions to ChatGPT and Google Search to compare their performance. The questions covered various topics, from culture and entertainment to health, government, and politics. They aimed to test both the conversational abilities of ChatGPT and the factual knowledge of Google Search.
The research team divided their questions into three levels of difficulty: basic, intermediate, and advanced. They also evaluated each question based on three key factors: the potential consequences of the answer (stakes), whether the answer could be verified (objectivity), and how the answer might change over time (time-sensitivity).
Finally, the responses were scored based on 12 characteristics, including being actionable, clear, comprehensive, concise, rich in context, current, decisive, detailed, efficient, functional, impartial, and thoughtful.
So, which tool emerged as the winner after all this evaluation?
Who Emerges as the Champion in the Battle of Artificial Intelligence?
ChatGPT won the comparison study against Google, scoring 26-13 with one tie. Google performed well in answering basic and high-stakes questions, but ChatGPT was rated better in seven of twelve categories. This shows the potential of conversational AI to provide valuable answers beyond traditional search engines like Google.
It’s important to note that the competition between ChatGPT and Google is far from over. With the upcoming launch of Google’s rival AI, Bard, it will be intriguing to see how the two stack up against each other in the future. Another study like this could provide valuable insights into the advancements in the field of conversational AI.
