According to a report published on Friday by The New York Times, the high-profile latest artificial intelligence chatbot ChatGPT developed by OpenAI poses such a significant risk to Google’s core operations that the company’s co-founders have resumed communications with the search giant.
In November, OpenAI launched ChatGPT, and within days, over a million people were asking it a wide range of questions. The AI system received training by using a large amount of text from the internet. It can now answer questions, write essays, write computer programs, and come up with all kinds of information.
ChatGPT may seem like a reliable source, but it isn’t always right. Besides, you can’t tell where it gets its information. Nevertheless, it’s remarkable enough to go viral online and useful enough that Google reportedly responded to ChatGP with a “code red” response.

The Times said that Sundar Pichai, the CEO of Google’s parent company, Alphabet, has asked Google co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin to look into the issue. By 2019, they were no longer involved in the day-to-day operations of the company.
Google has a competing AI technology called PaLM, but that AI system is not available to the public. As a forerunner in artificial intelligence, it created the “transformer” technology that forms the backbone of sophisticated language models like PaLM and OpenAI’s ChatGPT foundation, GPT-3. Google summarized its AI use in a blog post this week, from email replies to ad placement.
Google did not issue a statement regarding the moves made by the co-founders or its position on ChatGPT. However, company spokeswoman Lily Lin stressed the importance of ethical AI use.
He did, however, express confidence that Google would ultimately be able to weather the storm. Google has more than enough money to make investments that will lead to a ChatGPT competitor. It has four services that each have more than a billion users. As a result, it makes $60 billion a year from searches.
