The artificial intelligence it has been taken to photography, text, audio, video and now it takes a step forward as a search tool on the internet. you.com is the new tool, which is in a beta phase and there are several functions with which it seeks to stand out from already established competitors such as Google Y Bing.
It is important to make it clear that although the page can be used normally, its development has not finished and that is why it still works slowly and sections like the video section show outdated content.
This platform promises to be more than a search engine and what it wants to promote is the consultation of specific content on other websites, so as not to go around the bush in the results shown to the user.
And from here starts its first function different from what traditional search engines offer. For example, when searching for the best cell phones, not only will a list of pages or media outlets that have made a recent list appear, but at the top there will appear several options for telephones that the user can buy or see similar products in a panel. that opens on one side.
At the bottom of the first few results, the page will suggest similar queries, which in this case are addresses to web pages that have reviews, roundups, or are e-commerces with featured products based on their rating there. In this section you can divide the search into purchases, news, advice and others.
In summary, this differential option focuses on the search terminology, how artificial intelligence works, linking a lot to the literalness of the query and not branching the content as other search engines do.
Another function is a chatbot that accompanies the user all the time. This appears on both sides, either as a separate section to ask questions or with a message on the right side that directs the person to the same chat with the query made.
He may be asked for help with queries or ask questions directly to avoid entering other pages, such as specific questions about what a term means or when such an event occurs. When asked if he could write a compound text, such as an essay, he assured that he could not and instead gave us advice on how we should do it.
Finally, you is a tool to search for a person’s social networks in a much easier way. By putting someone’s name, only results from digital platforms such as Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn. However, it is not always so precise and since there are so many people in the world with the same name, the results can be very varied, so you have to be more precise with your search.
A version under construction
Some points that the platform still needs to improve are the links to searches in Spanish, since when consulting ‘best smartphone’, the examples that we put previously came out, but when searching for ‘best cell phones’ only the listings made by media in our language appeared without the purchase suggestions.
The same goes for slow page loading images, media cover photos in News Feed that don’t always appear or aren’t optimized.
In addition to corrections in the chatbot’s responses, because when asked who had won the World Cup 2022 He replied that the tournament had not yet started, the same as when consulting the films nominated for the Oscar 2023named those of the previous year.
