Microsoft is rumored to be updating its Bing search engine with artificial intelligence from OpenAI's ChatGPT chatbot, allowing it to answer search requests with whole phrases rather than a list of links.
The new function, which is slated to be available by the end of March, is designed to offer Microsoft a competitive advantage over Google, its major search opponent.
Microsoft will also seek a return on a $1 billion investment in OpenAI made in 2019.
It's worth mentioning that OpenAI plans to charge for ChatGPT in the future, same to how it charges programmers who use GPT to build text-generating bots. As a result, Bing may become one of the only free GPT access points.
