Artificial intelligence continues to take small steps and now we present You, a search engine, still in beta phase, driven by artificial intelligence that is considered the Google of the future.
One of the great topics that circulates in all the media is the fight of large companies like Google for the great viralization of tools based on artificial intelligence like ChatGPT, which is postulated by some as the next great seeker.
With this on the table, Google has recently triggered a code red in the company, which is the equivalent of pulling the fire alarm, in a nutshell, and has reassigned positions on teams to collaborate with each other, develop and launch new prototypes and AI products.
On the other hand, however, Microsoft is preparing to add the OpenAI chatbot ChatGPT to its Bing search engine in an attempt to attract users from rival Google. As we can see, two very different sides of a coin and a pretty bitter battle.
Despite all this, it seems that the future of AI-powered search engines is already here and coming. with name You. Let’s see what it consists of and put it to the test.
You, a different way of using a search engine
You is not just a search engine. And it is that, this will search the web, and even more deeply in the content of very specific websites for any type of information. Basically what we find is a much richer engine that you can access in a very simple way to what you want.
It is true that the basic You search engine requires some effort to get the most out of it. If you are looking for a result such as the best laptops, the best mobiles or the most used car, the results are not only different, but also the order in which they appear.
In a traditional search engine like Google or Bing, the engine returns a list of pages where you expect to find the answer to your question and this should be in the first results. What we will get here is a mix of search results and apps.
Also, note that has a chatbot in the pure ChatGPT style, with the name YouChat that will also serve as a guide during your search process. Here, we add, we will not find, at least for the moment, large amounts of ads as is the case with Google.
you earn money through affiliate links, an optional monthly subscription to the writing tool, and a fraction of money for displaying Walmart advertising. We are more faced with an engine that prioritises, just like artificial intelligences do, search terminology, than bombarding you with a large amount of useful information and other that is not so much.
The part that surprises us the most is that facility to obtain all the social networks of that person or company that you are looking for, something that, of course, Google does not do. Just by doing a search and doing some scrolling, you will have the Instagram, Twitter, TikTok profile of whoever you want. You can also go to the Social section and there you will find all the social networks.
Now, one of the great obstacles to the general use of You is that is slow. For a result, it can take a second or two to load, which can make the whole process a pain in the ass. In the following image you can see how the content does not appear as soon as you do the search.
Another of the problems that we can find, perhaps more serious, as discussed in the Free Android, is that You’s Artificial Intelligence sometimes failsPerhaps the most popular being the question of who won the 2022 World Cup, to which he answered that Argentina, correctly, but saying that it was held in Russia.
On the other hand, the Video section, which is really interesting because it has a very attractive interface, it is true that, for example in our case, show very old videos, so here we do not see that there is an update of the content. If this happens with videos, we can assume that the same thing happens with searches.
Now, one of the great strengths, as you can see in the left column, is the amount of content and options available to you.
That is, in the search for “computer today”, we can use the browser, an image viewer that chooses to show us all the covers of our magazine, the Code section that takes us to StackOverflow to answer questions about programming…
Although perhaps the one that attracts the most attention is that of Imagine (Imagine). This paragraph tAllows you to use Midjourney or Stable Diffusion to generate an image thanks to the artificial intelligence of these tools. The big problem is that sometimes you have to wait too long for it to become effective and it can be frustrating.
It is true that we have already discussed several failures of this Search EngineYes, but it must be said in his favor that It’s still in betaso you must be careful of course if you want to use its results, but it is a perfect way to dig and poke around in this useful tool that we hope will continue to improve.
