“What excites me isn't the prospect of replicating Google's search, but rather the possibility of discovering a fundamentally better approach to aiding people in finding, utilizing, and synthesizing information,” Altman elaborated. “I don't think the world requires another duplicate of Google,” he added.

Certainly, Google hasn't overlooked the challenge posed by significant players in the artificial intelligence sphere, such as Altman's OpenAI. Recently, Bloomberg disclosed that was in discussions to incorporate Google's chatbot, , into the iPhone.

The tech behemoth's aspirations in AI did suffer a setback last month following allegations from some users who criticized Gemini and its developers as being “woke.” Google received numerous complaints regarding its chatbot consistently generating images of people of color within inaccurate historical contexts.

At the time of reaching out for comment from Business Insider, representatives for OpenAI had not responded, possibly due to the request being made outside regular business hours.
