The search engine Brave Search launches summaries made by artificial intelligence

In recent months we have been experiencing threshold changes in the way we use the internet. Search engines are an essential part of it, and are increasingly integrating more features based on artificial intelligence. Today, the specimen is Brave Search, who has premiered a new feature called Summarizer among the main functions of your browser.

No, Summarizer is not a chatbot like the ChatGPT model at Bing or the Bard at Google. Brave Search comments that “unlike AI-powered chat tools, which can deliver false answers, Summarizer generates a simple summary at the top of the search results page.” In fact, instead of using a third-party model, the Summarizer’s technology is based on its own LLMLarge Language Model-.

Brave Search has taken this approach to get rid of unsubstantiated claims, something search engines like Bing have sinned against after integrating ChatGPT technology. The same thing happened with Google, whose AI Bard cost it millions of dollars after a wrong answer. The search engine Brave Search, for its part, wants AI to be part of its services, but in a more intelligent and measured way.

Who can use Brave Search’s artificial intelligence? According to Josep M. Pujol, Head of Search at Brave, “This open system is available to all Brave Search users starting today, to help them better navigate search results.”

Another of the important innovations that Brave Search launches can be seen in the descriptions of the search results. Whereas previously only keywords from a search were highlighted, now artificial intelligence highlights full text that can be helpful to users during their queries.

According to Brave Search, It is important that Summarizer always show the sources where your answers come from. In this way, users can confirm the facts and whether the summary has been constructed without errors. Fortunately, since it is an AI that collects information and is not generative, the possibility of errors is greatly reduced, but not completely.

Although the technology demonstrated by Brave Search is very useful, it still doesn’t take up much space in the responses. In fact, only 17% of searches are valid to activate Summarizer. Of course, among the company’s plans is to make this number increase.

Meanwhile, the struggle between search engines to harness the power of artificial intelligence increases over time. You may have already heard of Bard, Google’s proposal. Bing, for its part, has managed to become the most controversial search engine in recent months after its integration with ChatGPT. Meanwhile, smaller contenders such as have also unveiled their proposals to include AI in their services.
