The race for artificial intelligence and its integration in different sections does not stop. On this occasion, the news comes from the famous Opera browser through its official blog: it has integrated ChatGPT into its interface. And not only in its desktop version, but also in its mobile version.
According to the information disclosed, the chatbot can be used directly from the browser itself. In addition, its integration includes some very curious new features, such as the possibility for the AI to summarize the page we are reading.
Opera has published an example video for this function, which appears at the top right with a “Shorten” icon. If we click on this, ChatGPT itself opens automatically and summarizes the text displayed on the screen. In addition, it draws conclusions through very specific points, as if it were making an index. It is really curious how it works, especially considering that the synthesis capacity seems to be correct.
“We see the rise of Generative AI as the beginning of a new future where developers of consumer applications like Opera will be able to create experiences on AI-based platforms,” notes Per Wetterdal, Head of Strategic Partnerships and AI ecosystem. “We are delighted to see the rapid deployment of developer programs for solutions like Google Bard, for example, and we are starting to build and launch new experiences that not long ago seemed impossible to achieve in web browsing.”
We must not forget that this news comes after the whirlwind of news around AI in recent weeks, from the emergence of Google Bard to the integration of ChatGPT with Bing and Edge. Opera is therefore well positioned in this long-distance race that still has many miles to go.
