OpenAI received widespread praise for the launch of ChatGPT, and in the wake of ChatGPT’s success, Quora also entered the field with the release of their own AI chatbot called Poe (short for Platform for Open Exploration). Currently available by invite only and exclusively on iOS, Poe aims to help users easily interact with multiple AI agents, similar to how other platforms such as Notion and GitHub have released similar AI tools to improve productivity.

Quora has reportedly built ChatGPT from scratch. It can be used for asking questions about a wide range of topics, from poetry to coding. However, it is worth noting that there is a risk of encountering incorrect information, as ChatGPT has only been trained using Quora’s 12 years of data. While it can be a helpful resource for users looking to expand their knowledge, it is possible that some answers may be subject to controversy, as they may sound convincing but not be factually true. Stack Overflow has banned users from sharing ChatGPT-generated code, as the company has claimed that the AI-generated code allows users to generate quick responses and frequently post dubious answers.

Quora has launched a chatbot tool similar to ChatGPT, called AI ChatBot. This tool is currently invite-only.

As previously mentioned, ChatGPT has been trained using Quora data, so it is likely to provide relevant answers. However, it is important to note that there have been instances where AI systems such as Stable Diffusion, DALL-E, and GitHUb Copilit have had their work stolen and profited from by protesters. In fact, Microsoft, GitHub, and OpenAI have all faced lawsuits for violating copyright law by using sections of licensed code without giving proper credit. Additionally, asking ChatGPT about topics such as writing help, cooking, problem solving, and nature may result in a large number of Quora-sourced answers.

Quora’s Poe has the ability to interact with users in a conversation that feels natural. The company has stated that they are working on a significant amount of research and development to improve the tool, including a user-friendly interface. However, it is important to note that AI chatbots like Poe have the potential to generate biased, racist, and malicious content. Both Quora and OpenAI are working to prevent bots from generating unsafe responses. It is still early days for this technology, so we will have to wait and see what future updates bring.
