Joanna Czajka, Product Director of Operaexplains: “Artificial intelligence is rapidly changing the way we work, navigate the web and, of course, also the way we think about browsers and the role they can play in users’ online experience”.
The result is Aria it relies on infrastructure Opera Composerwhich allows him to access the GPT model in OpenAI and to integrate live results from the web into your responses. Air is a virtual assistant that can help users find information, generate content or code, and resolve questions about Opera products. And it’s up to date with the latest news from the web, and it’s not just based on pre-2021 data like other GPT-based solutions.
Aria is free and available to Opera desktop users (Windows, MacOS, Linux) e Android. Opera also unveiled Opera One, a revamped version of its browser with a modular design suitable for hosting more generative AI features.
