Sometimes generative AI search results are far superior to what Google offers. Instead of having to wade through a lengthy list of sites that can get bogged down with ads or paywalls, you can more quickly get a question answered and learn about what you searched for.
Of course, generative AI tools aren’t perfect. You have to contend with two simple realities: 1) the results will be incorrect sometimes and 2) the results could have been plagiarized (without proper citation).

But for those who have grown to depend on AI, Google has simplified its use within the Chrome browser. All you have to do is enable SGE (Search Generative Experience) in Chrome and you can start (or continue) your AI journey with ease.
SGE is an experiment from Google Labs and recently Google applied very powerful Large Language Models (LLMs) to Search. One model, Multitask Unified Model (MUM) is 1,000 times more powerful than BERT (Bidirectional Encoder Representations from Transformers) and is trained across 75 different languages.

With SGE, you can ask all types of complex and descriptive questions, get to the heart of a matter more quickly, get your work done faster, and ask conversational follow-ups.
Let me show you how it’s done.
How to enable SGE in Chrome
What you’ll need: To add SGE to Chrome, you’ll need the Chrome desktop browser and a valid Chrome account that is not a work or school account (it’s not yet available for those). That’s it. Let’s make it work.
You’ve just empowered your Google searches with generative AI in Chrome. Hopefully, this tool will help you learn more, faster.
