Quora, the well-known question-and-answer platform, recently revealed a new addition to its website: a feature that allows users to engage in conversations with artificial intelligence.
The feature, dubbed POE (Platform for Open Exploration), is currently in beta testing phase and is only accessible to a select group of iOS users. As per Quora’s CEO Adam D’Angelo, the feature will be available on an invite-only basis until the company can address scalability and any other potential issues.
According to a tweet from Adam D’Angelo, CEO of Quora:
Today we are starting a beta test for a new product called Poe. Short for "Platform for Open Exploration", it lets people ask questions, get instant answers, and have back-and-forth dialogue with AI.— Adam D'Angelo (@adamdangelo) December 20, 2022
Once these matters are resolved, the feature will be made available to all users across all platforms.
POE shares similarities with ChatGPT, a chatbot that utilizes natural language processing for interactions with users. It is expected to significantly improve the user experience on Quora by providing quick and accurate responses to questions.
