The popular Q&A website Quora is finally freeing up a newly created hub that lets users access multiple AI-powered chatbots including OpenAI’s ChatGPT as public interest in this technology keeps growing.
The Chief Executive Officer of Quora, Adam D’Angelo, shared the news last Friday in a blog post published on the website. Initially, the solution will only be available to iOS users. However, there is already a waitlist for those who would like to try out the Android version as soon as it is released.
“I expect this AI technology wave to be far more transformative than the personal computer, the internet, or the smartphone, and I expect it to have a much larger and more positive impact on society and on the world economy”, the CEO stated.
How Does Poe Work?
The models used by Poe to come up with answers for users are powered by the technologies of both OpenAI and Anthropic. However, Quora aims to incorporate many other models in the future as well.
“We hope that Poe can fill this gap and greatly reduce the amount of work needed for any AI developer to reach a large audience of users”, D’Angelo commented.
Some of the chatbots that have already been included in the solution are Claude, Dragonfly, ChatGPT, and Sage. It is unclear if Quora partnered with these providers to create the apps as a spokesperson from the company declined to comment on this particular subject when asked by journalists from TechCrunch.

Aside from the consumer-facing app, Quora is also working on an API that can be used by developers to integrate this type of software into their products, services, and applications. Quora’s initiative will surely help increase the level of adoption of this kind of technology as the platform provides support via crowdsourced answers to over 400 million monthly unique users.
Poe, which stands for Platform for Open Exploration, was officially launched in December last year. At the time, the app was an invite-only beta version. However, anyone with an iOS-powered device can now visit the Poe app to get answers from a wide range of topics.
Quora clarified that Poe is kind of a separate product for now, meaning that it will not be incorporated as a feature within the Q&A platform. That said, some of the best-rated answers provided by the AI may make it to the main library to be distributed among users.
Companies are rushing to look for ways to incorporate AI technology into their solutions, either to take advantage of all the hype or to truly improve how their products and services work by tapping into this trend.
OpenAI, the company behind what appears to be the most popular generative AI, ChatGPT, just launched a premium subscription that costs $20 per month for those who would like to avoid the increasingly longer wait times for using the chatbot.
In addition, Microsoft, the strongest ally of the company founded by Sam Altman, may also be ready to release an AI-powered version of its flagship search engine Bing as indicated by recent tests the company has made publicly.
Alphabet Rushes to Launch its ChatGPT-Like Solution Called Bard
Meanwhile, Alphabet (GOOG), the parent company of Google, just released a new product called Bard that will directly compete with ChatGPT. The official announcement from the company was made just hours ago by no other than its CEO, Sundar Pichai, who describe Bard as a combination of “the breadth of the world’s knowledge with the power, intelligence and creativity of our large language models”.
AI models have been criticized for providing inaccurate answers due to their limited knowledge base and other technical flaws. Google aims to create a high-quality, safe, and accurate AI-powered solution by combining both external feedback with the firm’s required internal twitches.
“AI can be helpful in these moments, synthesizing insights for questions where there’s no one right answer. Soon, you’ll see AI-powered features in Search that distill complex information and multiple perspectives into easy-to-digest formats, so you can quickly understand the big picture and learn more from the web”, the head of the interest search giant asserted.
