Seemingly unsatisfied with being the king of chatbots, OpenAI is allegedly cooking up a new product. According to a report published in The Information yesterday, the ChatGPT maker is working on a new web search product that could rival Google.

OpenAI isn’t the only AI company to build a new search product. Perplexity AI (which we love using) and Arc Search are two recent search products that have made headlines. As AI models get better at searching information and creating answers, some new products on the market are trying to take advantage of these capabilities to build alternatives to the traditional link browsing experience that Google offers.

According to the Information, OpenAI may tap Bing (which is owned by its partner Microsoft) to create the new product. OpenAI has already incorporated Bing into its ChatGPT web browsing feature.

How to do research with Perplexity AI

Got a report you need to create for work? Or an article you need to write for your company’s blog? Maybe you have a last minute deadline to write an assignment. Here’s how to speed up your research with Perplexity AI:

  • Go to the Perplexity website

  • In the search bar, enter the following prompt: I am writing a report (or blog or whatever) about [insert topic]. Give me a list of key facts and statistics I should include in the report.

  • Perplexity will give you a list of sources you can visit to find the information you’re looking for.

  • It will also give you a summarized answer with source links you can access to go deeper.

You can adapt the prompt to match your needs, and you can ask follow up questions to get further information about a topic.


You won’t be shocked to know that a majority of people aren’t interested in reading AI-generated books. But surprisingly, 47% of Millennials and 39% of Gen Z are very interested or somewhat interested in reading a book entirely written with AI, according to tech publication Enterprise Apps Today. We’re smelling a market opportunity for “writers” who can use chatbots and AI models to generate books.
