Today, DuckDuckGo launched DuckAssist, an AI-powered summarization feature that responds directly to users’ simple searches.
Using Wikipedia and other reference sites that it uses to source answers, DDG claims that its natural language summarization capability is powered by natural language technology from ChatGPT creator OpenAI and Anthropic, an AI startup founded by former OpenAI employees.
At the moment, DuckAssist is only accessible through DDG’s apps and browser extensions, but the business claims it hopes to make it available to all users of search in the upcoming weeks.
The beta feature can be accessed without logging in and is available for free. Right now, it’s only offered in English.
