OpenAI could steal the spotlight from Google I/O next week


Google’s search engine has pretty much dominated the landscape since its inception all those years ago. We doubt that they will be dethroned anytime soon, but OpenAI could give Google pause. A recent report from Reuters has revealed that OpenAI could be launching their Google Search competitor as soon as next week.

Now, at the start of the month, there was a report that OpenAI was planning their own search engine powered by ChatGPT. Now this report suggests that the launch could take place as soon as the 13th of May. This is very interesting because Google I/O takes place on the 14th of May, so OpenAI’s announcement has the potential to overshadow Google’s event.

The company has declined to comment on the report, so we’ll have to wait and see if it pans out. OpenAI is no stranger to search. The company has partnered with Microsoft to integrate its AI technology into Bing, but this search engine could be a standalone effort. Google is already testing AI integration into search, so it will be interesting to see how OpenAI’s efforts will fare.

One of the upsides of generative AI search is that users don’t need to spend time combing through websites to find what they need. Google’s web crawling capabilities was what gave them a lead over the competitors over the years, but the use of AI could challenge that. Take it with a grain of salt, but check back with us on Monday for the details.
