Note: This is a lightly edited piece of something I wrote for my institution What is Google’s Search Generative Experience (SGE)? In past ResearchRadar pieces, we have discussed about how search engines both general (e.g. Bing Chat, Perplexity) and academic (e.g Elicit, Scite Assistant, Scopus (upcoming)) are integrating search with generative AI (via Large Language Models) using techniques like RAG (Retrieval Augmented

It would be able to create images using DALL-E 3, OpenAI's image generation model 3. It would be able to accept image inputs Since I finally gained access to these features, I will briefly review them with my thoughts on how impactful they might be for
