Atiba de Souza: All right, so there's a lot of chat right now about ChatGPT killing Google. Chat about ChatGBT. Well, I want to take a moment and share with you my opinion. Now, I want to be clear, this is one man's opinion. I'm not sitting here saying that I'm a prognosticator. I'm not saying that, "Yo, I know the exact truth."
But what I am saying is, I'm giving you one man's opinion of who's seen a ton been in search since 1996, watched all of the changes that have happened in search over the years, and watched the human experience as it's changed over time. And I want to share with you just where I see the world going forward with Google and ChatGPT because quite honestly, there are a lot of people who are saying AI, ChatGPT specifically has come to kill Google.
Hey, listen, at the time of this recording ChatGPT been out for about 40 days or so and it's already hit 10 million users per day. That took Instagram years to do, right? It broke the internet.
It's growing like wildfire. People are using it left and right, and so yeah, it looks like, "Oh my gosh, it's about to be the next behemoth. And we can go there and it can answer our questions, guys. Oh my gosh, it's gonna kill Google." Yeah, I get it. I get it. I get why I can look like that. I get why I can feel like that.
And you had Google then turn around, and according to memos, had internal meetings and they're scrambling to figure out what to do about AI and they're bringing back the original founders to give them advice about AI and how they should proceed. And so, is the end now for Google? Is it almost over? Are they really worried? That even Microsoft is putting tons of money into ChatGPT and planning on building in a chat box into its search.
Well, I don't think so. Let me just be real and honest with you for a moment. I don't think so. AI is not going to kill search. This isn't even about Google. This is bigger than even Google.
AI is not going to kill search. Let me tell you why I say that. And in order to understand that, we need to embrace something that pretty much all of us already know, but sometimes we forget. At the core, humans are hunters and gatherers. At the core, humans are wired to search for things. We've been doing it since the dawn of humankind.
It's who we are at the core. We're going to search, we're going to search. That's why search engines have had so much success for so long because they speak to the exact nature of who we are as humans on this entire planet. But that's not all humans are designed to do. Humans are also designed to grow.
Humans are also designed to create. We go and search and we gather so that we can then turn around and create research so we can create. Well, that's what we have right now. We have Google that gives us the ability to search for created content. Someone else already created it. We need to go search and learn about it.
We need to go find it so that we even know it exists, so that we can even open our minds to the possibility, so that we can even get on the runway and see, "Oh, look! We can go this way." Google gives us that ability to go find created content. But the thing about it is, once we have found created content, the reason we were searching for it is because we want to go create something with it.
ChatGPT, more specifically AI, allows us to take the information that we searched for, dream about what we want to create and then become creators. AI allows us to become creators.
Let's go back. Humans want to hunt, gather and search. We wanna go find things, but then when we find something, we want to create. We go search for something that someone else, something else already created, learn about it, grow from it, dream, and then we want to go become the creator. So I don't see that AI is going to kill Google.
No. AI is going to make Google stronger. Now, let's take it even further. Let's take it even further and deal with what you may or may not even realize is the elephant in the room. Google search has been powered by something way more powerful than ChatGPT since 2017. They've been set on this technology forever.
Is it new? It's not new. They've had it. So let me ask you a question. At the end of the day, who do you think is going to be left standing? There's gonna be a place for ChatGPT. There's gonna be a place for OpenIA, but as this year continues to unfold, 2023, Google's already said in May, they're going to give us a preview of what their AI is going to be able to do.
So the future, search plus AI, the future, search plus AI, because we want to go search for what's already been created and learn. We want to dream and then we want to become the creator.
Search and AI allow us to do that. So Google's not dead. Search is not dead. It's not. It's too germane to the human experience. It can't. It's part of who we are. It's here. AI, yeah, it's the future because it allows us to do the thing that humans do better than anything else on this planet and that's create. So that's my two cents about where we are going.
I would love to hear your thoughts, your feedback. Do you think I'm wrong? Do you think I'm crazy? Do you agree or do you fall somewhere in the middle? Leave a comment for me. Let's chat. This is just my opinion. One man's opinion. We'll see where we go. Thanks everybody. Bye-bye!
