DuckDuckGo’s Search Engine introduces AI-generated responses

A feature called DuckAssist that will automatically gather and summarize data from Wikipedia in response to specific queries.

The most recent search engine to implement artificial intelligence is DuckDuckGo. The company has introduced a brand-new feature called DuckAssist that will automatically gather and summarize data from Wikipedia in response to specific queries.

Nevertheless, only through DuckDuckGo’s mobile apps and browser extensions is DuckAssist’s beta available on the search engine at this time. If the experiment “runs well,” according to DuckDuckGo founder and CEO Gabriel Weinberg, the service will be made available through the website-based search engine.

A popup that reads “I can check to see if Wikipedia has relevant information on this issue, just ask” will appear at the top of your search results when you enter a query that DuckAssist can answer. When you click the blue “Ask” button, an AI will generate a response based on summarized Wikipedia content.

According to DuckDuckGo, DuckAssist won’t have an answer for every query. The feature is more likely to be present when searching for terms with “clear Wikipedia answers.” In other words, rather than asking more debatable questions like “What is the best search engine?” try asking, “What is a search engine index?” 

DuckAssist can make mistakes just like other AI programs do. In addition to the fact that Wikipedia might not always include accurate information, there is a limit to the quantity of information the feature can synthesize, according to Weinberg. Instead of relying solely on its own data, Weinberg contends that having DuckAssist produce summaries in response to queries lowers the likelihood that it will fabricate information.
