Microsoft said today that it is integrating a new ChatGPT-like capability into its Bing search engine to give it cutting-edge AI capabilities.
At a private event focusing on its cooperation with OpenAI that was conducted at its Redmond headquarters today, Microsoft announced its plans for integrating ChatGPT.
Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella also highlighted the significance of this feature:
|"I think this technology is going to reshape pretty much every software category. "The race starts today," and Microsoft is going to "move and move fast."
The new Bing, according to Nadella, would offer direct responses to queries and inspire users to be more imaginative. Nadella added that Bing's current search experience is inefficient because 40% of consumers click on search links before instantly clicking back.
A next-generation language model from OpenAI that has been specially modified for search needs powers the new Bing. It is even more effective than ChatGPT.
Edge browser update
Users can access the chat interface Microsoft introduced in Bing through Edge's sidebar functionality without going to the Bing website. Any webpage can interact with the interface while it is running beside it.
In a demo, the AI assistant in Edge was shown to be able to sum up a 15-page PDF with only one click and even convert a code sample from Stack Overflow into a different programming language.
Having the "AI co-pilot" feature of the Edge browser finish chores for you, like filling out forms and drafting emails, is another advantage.
