Yandex Unveils Neuro

Yandex has introduced Neuro, a powerful AI product that seamlessly integrates its search engine capabilities with a proprietary large language model (LLM). Neuro is designed to provide users with concise, accurate responses by selecting relevant sources from across the internet and summarizing the information using YandexGPT 3, the latest version of Yandex’s LLM. Importantly, all sources used are cited in the responses.

A New Era of Intelligent Search

Neuro is currently accessible through Yandex Browser and the Yandex app for users who have Russia set as their location. This innovative tool addresses the need for comprehensive answers to queries that would typically require sifting through multiple sources online. Neuro’s functionality allows users to ask follow-up questions and clarify information within the chat, adapting to the context of the conversation to provide precise and relevant answers.

User-Friendly and Versatile

Neuro is designed to understand casual, everyday language, enabling users to pose questions in their own words without needing to use specific terminology. In addition to text-based queries, Neuro supports image inputs. For example, users can upload a photo of a statue and inquire about the associated urban legends, and Neuro will provide the relevant information.

Real-Time, Reliable Information

One of Neuro’s standout features is its reliance on real-time search results rather than a static dataset. This ensures that the information provided is always up-to-date, accurate, and relevant, even incorporating data that has just appeared on the web. Neuro’s sophisticated LLM algorithms meticulously select and cite the sources for each response, allowing users to delve deeper into the topics if they wish.

Enhancing User Experience

Neuro represents a significant advancement in the integration of search and generative AI, enhancing the user experience by delivering precise, context-aware information. This launch underscores Yandex’s commitment to leveraging AI to meet the evolving needs of its users, providing a tool that is not only powerful and efficient but also intuitive and easy to use.

With Neuro, Yandex is setting a new standard in AI-driven search technology, offering a seamless blend of real-time data retrieval and advanced language processing to deliver high-quality, reliable answers to users’ queries.
