One of the reasons why Quora developed Poe was to make it easy for people to get instant answers to their questions using natural conversation. The company believes that there is an incredible amount of research and development going into advancing the capabilities of these models, and there is a need for good interfaces that are easy to use. Having now more than 400M unique visitors each month, Quora hopes that Poe will provide that interface so that everyone around the world can share in the benefits of these models. Surprisingy, after a few months of testing, many users claimed they preferred Claude of Anthropic’s responses to Sage of OpenAI, ChatGPT’s twin.
AI chatbots, including ChatGPT, can generate biased, racist, and otherwise toxic content, and some AI systems have been shown to regurgitate parts of the data on which they were trained. Poe is relying on the providers of the models to moderate and filter the content themselves. The model providers have put in a lot of effort to prevent the bots from generating unsafe responses, according to the spokesperson.
Although it is early days for Poe, Quora sees it as a separate, independent project that it plans to iterate and refine over time. The company has not disclosed any business motivations behind the app, but it is not difficult to imagine how it might build premium features into Poe if it grows. For now, Quora is focused on working out scalability, getting feedback from beta testers, and addressing issues that come up.
