As expected, Microsoft has eventually announced a new Bing Search with ChatGPT’s underlying technology integrated – to provide more intuitive results to users on the web.
Though it’s up now, Microsoft warns users to be aware of potential mistakes the AI search may make, and wants them to learn together how to handle it. Aside from this, the company has also unveiled a new Chat and Compose feature in the Edge browser.
Microsoft Bing With AI Chatbot
Clearing the rumors of Bing Search with ChatGPT integration, Microsoft today unveiled what it calls “the new Bing”, working in various configurations. With an investment made into OpenAI recently, Microsoft was able to procure ChatGPT’s underlying technology – GPT 3.5, and. l integrate it with Bing Search.
As a revamped service, the new Bing can now show traditional results aside from AI annotations that may help you understand the content better. Another mode lets users talk directly to the Bing chatbot – just similar to how we do it with ChatGPT.
Well, Microsoft has solved a grand issue that ChatGPT is suffering with – unable to procure the information after 2021 since it was not trained on this data. But the new Bing Search can retrieve results from as latest as an hour ago – offering users up-to-date content.
This is the result of improving GPT 3.5, ChatGPT’s AI OpenAI language model, which now Microsoft calls the “Prometheus Model”. Well, though it’s good, the actual question is – how good is this new service to act as a replacement for the traditional search? Would this technology comfortably sit alongside the existing methods to source reliable information online? And what happens when it makes mistakes?
The last one was even more important, as several researchers have flagged various incidents where ChatGPT-like AI chatbots failed in critical cases. They have a tendency to present false information as fact and may put users in unwanted situations.
How Microsoft would deal with this is yet to be known. Well, it at least does know that its new service will make mistakes – so it put up a warning banner as “Let’s learn together. Bing is powered by AI, so surprises and mistakes are possible. Make sure to check the facts, and share feedback so we can learn and improve!” – to those trying this now.
