We have to do something differently...
The world of search is changing dramatically every day. Bing launches a new thing, then Google Search launches a new thing. New LLM engines seem to be popping up every day. What is a SearchResearcher to do in a world full of change, claims, counterclaims, and an endlessly shifting searchable ground?
The good news is that there are LOTS of options for doing SearchResearch. The bad news is.. there are a LOT of options, and I'm not sure which is best, for what purpose, and how to be effective at the search.
So this week we've got a different kind of Challenge--a kind of meta-search Challenge--a search for the best research tools out there.
1. How can I find the best AI-powered search tools out there? Is there a way to do this?
2. What's your favorite AI-powered search engine? Say why it's your favorite?
I'm hoping that we'll get enough comments to hear the pros and cons of different tools. Here's a short list to get you started:
There are more, and even additional tools that stretch the definition of "search engine," but I'd love to hear from you about what you found and HOW you found it!
I'll post a couple of short comments this week as I work through things. I'd love to see what you use in your day-to-day searching, and what's not working for you.
