Google Launches New AI Search Engine

From CNET: Google has launched Search Generative Experience, or SGE, an experimental version of Search that integrates artificial intelligence answers directly into results, the company said in a blog post on Thursday.

Unlike a normal Google Search, which brings up a list of blue links, SGE uses AI to answer your questions right on the Google Search webpage. After entering a query in Google Search, a green or blue box will expand with a novel answer generated by Google's large language model, like the one powering OpenAI's ChatGPT.

Google pulls this information from websites and links to sources used when generating an answer. It's also possible to ask follow-up questions in SGE to get more precise results.

At the moment, SGE isn't open to the public and requires you to sign up to Google's Search Labs. To join, click the link here. Search Labs is currently available only to a limited number people in the US and in English only, though you can join the waitlist. Google didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
