Metaphor is an AI search engine that is powered by a language model. It is designed to understand language in a more expressive and creative way than traditional web search engines. Users can type in a “prompt”, which is similar to a GPT-3 prompt, and Metaphor will try and predict the link that is most likely to come after. To help users get familiar with the search engine, some templates are included to try out.
This tool is trained to predict links instead of text, and can provide a variety of results such as blog posts, wikipedia pages, directories of resources, demos, startups, books, papers, and more. It is particularly useful for finding resources related to AI, such as programming languages and classic AI algorithms. It can also provide music recommendations and other creative and interesting results.
Metaphor is a search engine designed from scratch using AI. Our goal is to find what your smartest friend could find you in a week, but instantaneously. By discovering new ways to search the internet, we’ll rediscover the internet.
How to use Metaphor?
Metaphor’s AI model is trained to do link prediction. This means that given some text prompt, it tries to predict the link that would most likely follow that prompt. Because of the way our current model was trained, the best prompts resemble how someone on the internet might refer to a link.
