DuckAssist: An AI-powered search engine by ChatGPT


DuckDuckGo, the privacy-focused search engine, has recently announced a new search engine powered by artificial intelligence called DuckAssist. This new search engine takes advantage of AI capabilities to create natural language responses to user queries using Wikipedia. In an official post, the developer company stated that DuckAssist is the first in a series of search and browser updates that will operate using artificial intelligence.

What's even more exciting is that this new feature is completely free and available in DuckDuckGo browsers and extensions.

Today, we're giving all DuckDuckGo app and browser extension users a first look at DuckAssist - the new direct answers service in search results.

If you enter a question that can be answered by Wikipedia, DuckAssist may appear and use AI-supported natural language to create a brief summary of information from Wikipedia above the regular search results.

It's completely free, and you don't need to register or do anything.

If the company successfully releases the beta version, they plan to launch an AI-powered search engine for users in the coming weeks.

The official company post explains that DuckAssist is a new type of instant answer service in the DuckDuckGo search engine, just like other types such as news, maps, and weather. This feature was designed to integrate with the company's search engine and bring content created by artificial intelligence.

After testing the feature, some analysts have said that DuckAssist answers questions by looking at specific sources (such as Wikipedia and similar websites) using the search engine's indexing. The personal assistant then uses ChatGPT's natural language technology to summarize the results and present them to the user as a direct answer to the actual question, compared to traditional search results.

However, DuckDuckGo stated that the new assistant will not appear to users for all the questions they ask in the search engine, but the service will evolve over time.

This announcement comes about a week after OpenAI launched a new API that allows developers to integrate cutting-edge language models into their applications, making AI more accessible and easier to use for everyone. The future of AI-powered search engines looks bright, and DuckAssist is just the beginning of what's to come.
