AI-assisted search has its limitations:
- HARPA AI relies on ChatGPT to answer the search queries. ChatGPT model language is usually cut-off at some point in time, so if you are searching for recent events, the ChatGPT will not provide the information you’re looking for.
- Not all topics may have adequate information available in the AI's database, leading to incomplete or inaccurate answers:
- The AI's responses are generated based on the information available to it and may not take into consideration the context or nuances of a specific situation.
- The AI's answers are not always 100% reliable and should be verified before being used for important or critical tasks.
Despite its limitations, the Search Assistant feature of HARPA.AI offers an efficient solution for web search. It is a valuable tool for anyone looking for information, but it is important to keep its limitations in mind and verify the information received before using it for important or critical tasks.
