DuckDuckGo introduces DuckAssist, a new feature generating natural language responses to search queries using Wikipedia.
DuckAssist is a novel kind of instant answer within our search results, similar to existing offerings like News, Maps, Weather, and others from DuckDuckGo. They designed DuckAssist to be fully integrated with DuckDuckGo Private Search, mirroring the appearance and user-friendliness of their conventional search results. Thus, while the AI-generated content is new, they hope that using DuckAssist will feel second nature to you.
To answer questions, DuckAssist analyzes a specific set of sources – currently, it’s primarily Wikipedia, with occasional related sites like Britannica – utilizing DuckDuckGo’s active indexing. As they employ OpenAI and Anthropic’s natural language technology to summarize what they find in Wikipedia, these responses should more directly address your question than traditional search results or other instant answers. This rephrased text offers an engaging and easy-to-read experience while maintaining a good level of perplexity and burstiness.
