Bing Launches New ChatGPT-Powered AI Search Experience
Microsoft has launched its new Bing search experience, powered by the OpenAI ChatGPT technology. The new feature allows users to input queries up to 1,000 words long and receive annotated AI-generated answers that will appear alongside traditional web search results. The limited preview version of the new Bing is available today for desktop users, with a waitlist available for those who want to try it out as soon as possible.
Join the Waitlist for Full Access
To join the waitlist for the new Bing experience, simply go to the waitlist page and sign up with your Microsoft account. You will receive higher priority if you also set Microsoft as your default on your PC and download the Bing app. Microsoft says it will be rolling out the new experience to millions of users in the coming weeks and is “excited to put the new Bing and Edge into the real world to get the critical feedback required to improve our models as we scale.”
What Can You Use the ChatGPT-Powered Bing For?
The new Bing allows you to use AI-generated chat to ask questions and receive answers on a range of topics. The waitlist page provides examples of some of the things you can try, such as asking for a three-course vegetarian menu for six people with a chocolate dessert or finding an all-wheel drive car with a sub-six-second 0-60 time. The new Bing will provide annotated answers alongside traditional search results, giving users a more comprehensive view of their search results.
Refine Your Results with the Built-in Chatbot
Microsoft has added a new built-in chatbot to Bing to refine the results you receive from your AI-generated answers. This allows you to clarify your results and ask follow-up questions, giving you a more accurate view of the information you need. The chatbot will also allow you to refine your results with specific parameters, such as location, price, and more.
Microsoft Teams Up with OpenAI
To power the new Bing, Microsoft has teamed up with OpenAI, the company behind the ChatGPT chatbot. Microsoft claims that it is using a “next-generation OpenAI large language model” that is even “more powerful than ChatGPT.” This collaboration allows Bing to provide users with the most advanced AI-generated answers possible, giving them a more comprehensive and accurate view of the information they are seeking.
AI Battle Heats Up with Google’s Bard
The announcement of the new Bing comes hot on the heels of Google revealing that it is working on a similar AI-powered tool called Bard, just one day ago. The two companies are in a heated battle over the future of AI, and the launch of Bing’s ChatGPT-powered experience is likely just the beginning of this competition. As both companies work to provide users with the most advanced and useful AI tools, it will be exciting to see what new features and capabilities are released in the coming months and years.
