While ChatGPT has just exceeded 100 million users, it becomes urgent for Google to react and release an alternative. After months of waiting, it could finally arrive as early as next week.
Since its launch at the end of last year, ChatGPT has truly begun to take over the world, becoming part of the daily lives of tens of millions of users. While Open AI’s GPT-3 isn’t the only conversational AI of its kind, it remains to this day one of the most advanced, but that could soon change.
Indeed, Google has announced that it will hold an event dedicated to artificial intelligence on February 8, starting next week. Even better, the conference has been named “Live from Paris”, which suggests that it will be recorded from France.

Google could strike back with even smarter AI
Although Google has previously declared that programs like ChatGPT are dangerous, it is not impossible that the search giant will eventually want to launch its own alternative to ride the wave created by its competitor.
Google says it is ” reimagining the way people search, explore and interact with information, making it more natural and intuitive than ever to find what you need “. This will translate to ” greater access to information for people everywhere, through search, Maps and beyond “.
It is therefore expected that Google will present an ever more efficient and intelligent search enginea news update of its Maps mapping application as well as other surprises. Given Microsoft’s current financial commitment to ChatGPT and its intentions to include AI in its Bing search engine, this would be a lost opportunity for Google not to at least mention a competing product ASAP.
As usual, these AI technologies will also be made available to businesses, developers, and Alphabet’s internal operations, but likely won’t be available to the general public right away.
