Like running face first into a wall...
This whole push looks like a great example of the blind leading the blind.
Voice assistants are last weeks news, but somehow the exact same technology that people decided not to give a damn about attached to the buzzword of "AI chatbot" is shiny and new.
The more cynical question is how many people at Google are smart enough to realize main impact of this will to put Google in control of which sites receive traffic, and which get their content scraped and changed JUST BARELY enough to _hopefully_ postpone the tidal wave of lawsuits.
Because that's how this plays out, they get sued because every time their chat bot "answers" a question in the search box, it's stealing organic page hits from the site that their chatbot stole the information from. I'm guessing when the dust settles that there will be a strong inverse correlation between how much money Google makes off of a sending traffic to a sited and how often it's search engine delivers a "summary" as opposed prominently displaying an unpaid link to the source site.
They got sued in Australia for scraping news content, and they are hoping that this will end run around around it while doing the same thing?
But if it's any consolation, it will probably also promote genocide in languages other than English, and promote drinking bleach to treat most common medical ailments for the English speakers.
