What is YouChat? — Unlock the Power of
AI with the Search Assistant that Works for You
A large language model by the name of ChatGPT has taken the world by storm. For many, it’s possibilities seem endless. The AI writes poems, creates games, codes, and even gives dating advice.
In the wake of ChatGPT, experts and users alike have begun to wonder what highly sophisticated, generative AI means for future search. As Rob Toews from Forbes points out, “Why enter a query and get back a long list of links (the current Google experience) if you could instead have a dynamic conversation with an AI agent in order to find what you are looking for?”
The barrier, according to Toews and other experts, is the propensity of large language models for incorrect data. Tools like ChatGPT confidently provide wrong answers, which many worry, could supercharge misinformation and propaganda.
That changes today.
With the introduction of citations and real-time data, You.com has upgraded a large language model for increased relevance and accuracy. It allows you to find answers to complex questions and unlocks functionality never before seen in a search engine.
