DuckDuckGo, the privacy-focused search engine, has unveiled DuckAssist, a new feature that generates natural language answers to search queries using Wikipedia. How Is DuckAssist Different From Other AI Search Tools? DuckDuckGo hopes to vastly increase the number of instant answers it provides through the combination of generative AI and Wikipedia. DuckDuckGo has been using Wikipedia as the primary source for instant answers for many years. Finally, since Wikipedia is always being updated, DuckAssist answers can reflect recent understanding of a given topic: right now our DuckAssist Wikipedia index it at most a few weeks old, and we have plans to make it even more recent.
