After the immense success of OpenAI’s ChatGPT, there are suddenly a huge surge of AI chatbots everywhere. Open web browser has also started coming with its own chatbot called Aria. It is an AI chatbot built on Opera’s in-house AI engine and works using several Large Language Models (LLM). It uses an artificial intelligence language model to chat with the users in human languages like English. We can ask Aria any question in English and it will understand it, process it, and respond in the same human language.
The name Aria comes from the musical term “aria”. It is used to describe a solo vocal piece in an “Opera”. This way the developers have cleverly indicated that how it has become an integral part of the Opera One web browser.
Here is how you can start using this new chatbot Aria in the Opera One web browser:
- Launch Opera One web browser and click on the Aria icon in the sidebar.
