Microsoft to put ChatGPT AI model in Bing search engine to challenge Google

Share

In a blog post last year, Microsoft said that it planned to integrate image-generation software from OpenAI, DALL-E 2, into Bing.

Microsoft Corp is working to launch a version of its search engine Bing using the artificial intelligence behind OpenAI launched chatbot ChatGPT. It could launch a new feature till the end of March, hoping to challenge search engine Google, the San Francisco-based technology news website said in a report.

By using the technology by OpenAI behind ChatGPT, Bing could provide more human- like answers to questions instead of just links to information. Google’s knowledge panels are particularly widespread when it comes to looking for information about organizations, people, places, and things.

ChatGPT lets users create poems, compose college essays, write code, and even shave hours off their work. It brought conventional AI to mainstream last year. Apart form its ability to generate answers and authentic-looking essays across a bunch of topics, ChatGPT system still has major flaws including racial biases and a tendency to present information as actual facts.

“It’s a mistake to be relying on ChatGPT for anything important right now.”

OpenAi CEO Sam Altman says. Microsoft plans to integrate ChatGPT into Bing will be important, and it’s likely the company will start with beta tests and a limited amount of integration before it’s ready for all Bing users to take advantage of.

Microsoft has a great relationship with OpenAI, one of the world’s leading AI companies. The Redmond-based tech giant is adding an Ai text-to-image model to Bing powered by OpenAI’s DALL-E 2; invested $1 billion in OpenAI in 2019; and has an exclusive licence to use its text generator AI GPY-3. This latter deal may help the rumoured Bing integration of ChatGPT isn’t clear yet.
