Quora’s Poe

Sarah Perez (via John Gruber):

Q&A platform Quora has opened up public access to its new AI chatbot app, Poe, which lets users ask questions and get answers from a range of AI chatbots, including those from ChatGPT maker, OpenAI, and other companies like Anthropic. Beyond allowing users to experiment with new AI technologies, Poe’s content will ultimately help to evolve Quora itself, the company says.

Quora first announced Poe’s mobile app in December, but at the time, it required an invite to try it out. With the public launch on Friday, anyone can now use Poe’s app. For now, it’s available only to iOS users, but Quora says the service will arrive on other platforms in a few months.

The whole appeal of Quora (at least before it became an engagement-thirsty mess of a site) was getting answers from (and giving answers to) other people.

If every site is going to use the same technology to do the same thing, why does Quora even need to exist once everybody forgets it was one of the first out the door with a me-too chat bot?

@BillyOk I expect what will happen is that sites like Quora that have their own content will not allow other AIs to index them.
