OpenAI Develops Web Search Product in Challenge to Google

The Search Service Would Be Partly Powered by Bing

OpenAI has been developing a web search product that would bring the Microsoft-backed startup into more direct competition with Google, according to someone with knowledge of OpenAI’s plans. The move to launch a search app comes a year after Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella said his company would “make Google dance” by incorporating artificial intelligence from OpenAI into Microsoft’s Bing search engine. That partnership has failed to dent Google’s search dominance.
