Microsoft Bing has been a major player in the search engine market for years. With its innovative technologies and constant updates, Bing continues to be a popular choice for users around the world. 

On February 7, Microsoft announced that it is incorporating Artificial Intelligence(AI) , referred to as AI copilot, into its Bing search engine and Edge web browser. This technology surpasses the capabilities of ChatGPT and can generate answers to user queries, create content, and facilitate chat conversations through a smart chatbot embedded within the search results. 

In addition, It also has the capability to summarize web pages, collate and synthesize data from various sources, and translate responses into different languages.

The new Bing and Edge Features

  1. The new Bing offers better search results and a new sidebar for more comprehensive answers, as well as interactive chat to refine searches by summarizing information from across the web.

  1. It cites all sources for generated content, allowing users to see links to the referenced web content.
  2. With the new Bing, users can utilize a feature that allows them to generate content  for various purposes, such as email writing, travel planning, job interview preparation, and creating quizzes.
  3. The Edge browser has been enhanced with new artificial intelligence features with the addition of two new functions: Chat and Compose. Users can ask for summaries of lengthy financial reports, compare data, and create tables  automatically. The compose feature helps to create content, such as for LinkedIn posts, by providing prompts for tone, format, and length. Moreover, it adapts to the webpage that the user is currently browsing.

Microsoft Bing AI Chatbot vs ChatGPT

  • Microsoft’s Bing Chat has the ability to access more recent and diverse sources of information which could result in greater accuracy of responses. In contrast, ChatGPT is limited to a single source of data from its language model and may not be able to confirm the accuracy of its responses through cross-referencing.
  • Microsoft’s Bing Chat will be able to access and provide information from current up-to-date data and is therefore more accurate, whereas ChatGPT is limited to the data that it was trained on before the end of 2021.  
  • ChatGPT uses a language model to generate human-like responses to user inputs, while Bing Chat uses a chatbot to provide more specific and targeted responses.
  • Microsoft has integrated the Bing Image Creator, which is built on an advanced DALL-E model, into its Bing Chat feature. This allows users to generate images within the chat, something that ChatGPT does not currently offer. While OpenAI, the creator of DALL-E, treats image and text generation as separate products, Microsoft is the first to attempt to integrate the two. 

Technical Breakthroughs 

Microsoft aims to revolutionize the way users interact with the web by merging the search, browser, and chat functionalities into one seamless experience.

  • The latest Microsoft Bing search engine is powered by OpenAI large language model which have been developed using the latest advancements and insights from ChatGPT and GPT-3.5, making it faster, more accurate, and highly efficient.
  • The Microsoft Prometheus model is a proprietary technology that uses Bing and GPT to generate responses based on real-time data. This combination provides  you with results with improved accuracy, timeliness and enhanced safety.
  • With the integration of AI technology into the ranking engine, Microsoft claims to have made the largest improvement in relevance in the last two decades. Even simple search queries are now more precise and appropriate thanks to this AI integration.
