Over the holidays, Sundar Pichai, the CEO of Google, made a surprise visit to the secret lair of company co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin, located deep within a crater in New Zealand. After descending 1km down the crater in a hover car, Sundar was greeted by the sight of a fortress made of solid titanium. Inside, he found Larry and Sergey, who were busy with their futurist VR helmets and suits. The lair was guarded by a liger, who served as the duo’s personal bodyguard.
“Sirs… I have good news, the Singularity is almost upon us,” Sundar exclaimed as he walked into the fortress. He was met with a cold response as Larry and Sergey barely acknowledged his presence, still engrossed in their virtual reality world.
Sundar pressed on and shared the exciting news that OpenAI’s GPT-3 was released on November 22nd, and that ChatGPT, an even more advanced model, was set to release on March 2023. He also informed them that they had secured a deal with Microsoft for a whopping $10 billion.
However, the news was met with little enthusiasm from Larry and Sergey, who were too preoccupied with their futurist VR helmets and suits. As Sundar tried to convey the urgency of the situation, he was interrupted by Larry who informed him that they were currently in a virtual reality session of “Rec Room” with Facebook CEO, Mark Zuckerberg. Sundar tried to insist that this was an important matter, and even suggested issuing a “Code Red” alert, but Larry dismissed it with a cold response.
What AreThe Actual Threats That OpenAi's GPT-3 and ChatGPT Pose on Google.
The reality is that OpenAI’s GPT-3 and ChatGPT models pose a major threat to Google’s core business, specifically their advertising revenue. The release of these models could potentially replace the need for search engines such as Google, as they offer a more personalized and efficient search experience. Google’s response to this threat will likely be to release their own search experience, which may rival Bing, in order to maintain their market share.
However, the real issue at hand is copyright. Google will have to protect their algorithms and data from being used by competitors. Bing, on the other hand, may not be as concerned with this issue. This puts Google in a collision course with Microsoft, as they both compete for dominance in the search engine market.
Who will win?.. Copyright, fake news, missinformation and bad actors could crash this party. OpenAI’s GPT-3 and ChatGPT models have the potential to disrupt the search engine market, and it will be interesting to see how Google responds to this threat. Will they release a rival search experience to maintain their market share, or will they find another way to protect their core business? Only time will tell.
