ChatGPT integration into Bing

ChatGPT integration into Bing

Microsoft has announced at an in-person event in its Redmond, Washington headquarters an upgraded version of its Bing search engine and Edge browser that integrates the ChatGPT chatbot, which customers can use to order products from reputable merchants.

During the conference, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella mentioned the significance of this exciting new feature and how it will revolutionise the way people interact with search engines: “I think this technology is going to reshape pretty much every software category,” says Nadella, confidently.

In today’s world of information overload and distractions, Microsoft calls it the “new Bing,” and it will have chat functionality where people can ask questions and receive answers in natural language. It uses an updated version of GPT 3.5 called the “Prometheus Model,” which offers more up-to-date information with annotated answers. This includes being able to ask questions like “What’s the weather going to be like?” and receive answers as text automatically formatted into a table with temperature and conditions readings. Microsoft is also trying to teach machines how to understand fun, random stuff like recipes and furniture shopping.

One of the most innovative features of ChatGPT is its ability to answer customer questions with embedded links. For example, one demo showed ChatGPT offering a travel itinerary with links to sources for information in response to the search query, “create an itinerary for each day of a 5-day trip to Miami.”

Microsoft’s Bing announcement on the 7th of February included a limited release for desktop clients. Users will be able to try out the new search engine and sign up for full access via a form on the Bing site with users being able to sign up for full access in the future.

Bing is now smarter. It includes a chatbot that behaves similarly to ChatGPT and allows users to interact with Bing in a natural language.

Bing’s new ChatGPT-like feature will take it a step further by allowing users to have an actual conversation with the search engine, with the ability to follow up on previous questions and provide more context for their search. This will allow for a great way for customers to find exactly what they need.

Key Notes

Search engine technology has come a long way in the last few years. Microsoft has taken this further by integrating a ChatGPT-like feature in its Bing search engine.

The new Bing is powered by a next-generation language model from OpenAI, which takes key learnings and advancements from ChatGPT and GPT-3.5. The result is high-quality translation accuracy at both the sentence and paragraph level, with improved word order accuracy, including aggregate sentiment scores.

The chat interface will be available as a sidebar feature in the new Edge browser, which has the ability to summarize information, translate code, and even complete tasks. It also provides additional keyboard shortcuts and tools to help you be more productive while working in any website.
