What we know

  • Google on Tuesday, May 14 announced its decision to display AI-generated answers to its numerous users in the USA as search results. The company explains that this new feature will prioritise AI answers before displaying organic search results.
  • Powered by Google's custom Gemini model, it is designed to handle multi-step reasoning and complex queries as well as offer users a more comprehensive understanding of their searches.
  • According to Google Search team boss Liz Reid, a user can ask all the complex questions at once without having to break down searches with the introduction of AI bots.
  • The AI-generated search results will be in full force this week in the USA Google CEO, Sunda Pichai said. He explains that the search changes will gradually reach other parts of the world.
  • Creators and small publishers are concerned about the shift with the fear that users will no longer visit websites for information. Research firm Gartner supports this apprehension as it predicts a 25 percent decrease in web traffic from search engines by 2026 due to the emergence of AI bots.

What they said

The Google team is enthused about this development and with anticipation, the Chief Executive Officer of Google, Sundar Pichai as reported by CNN wrote in a blog post on Monday, May 13 "I’m excited to announce that we will begin launching this fully revamped experience, ‘AI overviews,’ to everyone in the US this week.” The Google team adds that gone will be the days when a user has to go through about five searches to get what they need. “You can ask whatever’s on your mind or whatever you need to get done – from researching to planning to brainstorming – and Google will take care of the legwork,” said Google Search team boss Liz Reid according to a report filed by Punch Newspaper. “We’ve found that with AI Overviews, people use Search more, and are more satisfied with their results. Rather than breaking your question into multiple searches, you can ask your most complex questions, with all the nuances and caveats you have in mind, all in one go.”
