Google’s Project Magi is all set to bring Artificial intelligence tools into its search engine to enhance users’ experience and provide more interactive and conversational responses for users. Around 160 employees have been currently in “sprint mode” for the integration of AI tools to search engines.
Over the last few months, Artificial intelligence has been everywhere with almost every company creating its own version of an AI chatbot that can rival a deity. The most recent development this week brings Alphabet Inc ambitious AI-driven projects. Although it is well known that Google contains Bard AI chatbot and has been involved in building a number of AI-based products on text-to-images and text-to-videos. But now it seems Google is ready to experiment and bring AI tools into its search engine.
Apparently, South Korean smartphone giant Samsung had replaced the default search engine from Google with Microsoft’s Bing on its device. Bing AI has been a choice in search engines for quite some time, this has generated a few ruffles. According to a report by The New York Times, this recent development has resulted in Alphabet pressing the “Panic” button.
Microsoft’s Bing and other AI search engines have been giving Google nightmares, especially after the recent development. However, there have been talks about Google bracing itself for an “all-new” search engine based on the beneficial features and capabilities of AI tools. Reportedly, Google has been adding a variety of AI elements to its search engine and Project Magi has been used to launch these new integrations of AI tools in Google’s search engines.
What is Google’s Project Magi
Google’s project Magi is an integration of Artificial Intelligence tools into its search engine to provide users with a more enhanced, personalized, and intuitive search engine experience. The new features and capabilities are being steered by engineers, designers, and executives. All stakeholders are currently working on Project Magi in “Sprint mode”. It is believed about 160 engineers are currently working to bring Google’s vision to life by integrating AI tools into their search engines.
The new AI-integrated system will help learn what the users are looking for and assist them in the process. With the integration of AI tools, search engines will be able to provide a preselected option for users. It will be able to suggest the data to look for, what to shop for, and other forms of information through their learning ability.
The new AI search engine will also be more interactive and conversational which can be beneficial in answering users’ complex queries more precisely and providing customized answers. There have also been reports that Google’s new AI-integrated search engine will include an interface similar to OpenAI’s chatbot, ChatGPT.
As per reports, Magi Project will see Google adding a few AI features and functions to its existing search experience even before the search engine has been modified. Search queries and Search results will keep leading financial transactions and feature ads. This new feature will help users receive answers on coding and help write codes based on users’ prompts.
When to expect the release of new search tools under Project Magi?
As of now, there have been reports that Google has asked a few of its staff to start testing the features under Magi. The staff has also been encouraged to conduct follow-up questions to check the new search engine capabilities and how it responds to the inputs generated by users.
According to a few rumors we can expect an unveiling of these tools somewhere around May.
Reportedly, Google is planning to release its tools to about one million users, and further move up to 30 million users by the end of the year. For now, it seems the features will be first introduced in the United States.
Project Magi’s Impact on Google Search Engine
AI tools integration in Google’s search engine under Project Magi has the potential to impact the search engine market. Google might generate a more personalized and intuitive search experience through the integration of AI tools and help set apart Google from its competitors.
We can expect a better understanding and responses to queries with machine learning and natural language. With integration into AI tools, the search engine might be able to deliver more clear and more accurate answers to users’ complex inquiries.
It might also make Google search engines a more viable alternative to voice assistants such as Apple’s Siri or Alexa. Another promising search engine capability includes providing relevant results based on a user’s location or past search history.
It can analyze a user’s past search and data and help provide personalized results which are tailored to the user’s choices, interests, and preferences. Although it might include a few downsides as well for those users who might feel uncomfortable with Google’s search engine analyzing users’ past history and location data.
