In testing for a year, the new presentation leads to “more searches and more satisfaction for users”, assured Sundar Pichai, the boss of Google.

Google announced Tuesday that search results will now appear as answers written by its generative artificial intelligence (AI) technology, above links to websites, the most significant transformation for the search engine since its launch. creation.

In testing for a year, the new presentation leads to “more searches and more satisfaction for users”, assured Sundar Pichai , the boss of Google, on the stage of an open-air amphitheater at the company’s headquarters. in Mountain View, California. The new formula will first be deployed in the United States before arriving in other countries, to reach more than a billion people by the end of the year.

Online generative search

The American technology giant held its annual conference for developers on Tuesday, under the banner of generative AI (production of content on a simple request in everyday language). “We are still at the very beginning of the transition to the AI ​​era,” Sundar Pichai immediately recalled.

Google has already been testing this new way of doing online searches for a year. At the top of the results page, the Internet user receives a written answer to their question, generated by Gemini, Google’s AI model. They can then click on additional question suggestions to go further, or, further down, on traditional website links.
