When Microsoft unveils its AI-powered search platform, it will significantly alter the ways in which we access information and engage with search things online. The company claims that the next-generation OpenAI large language model will be used in the new Bing variant to significantly increase the search engine's efficiency, making it even more effective than the ChatGPT that is currently in use.
At the event, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella spoke about how this new feature will completely change the way people use search engines. "I think this technology is going to reshape pretty much every software category," says Nadella. "The race starts today and Microsoft is going to move and move fast". Nadella addressed. Microsoft's newest search experience, which they are calling , "your AI-powered copilot for the web" was also previewed for the event attendees.
OpenAI's ChatGPT has recently gained popularity amongst celebrities, musicians, screenwriters, and students due to its demonstrated ability to generate a wide variety of written content with the help of only a small number of suggestions. According to Microsoft, the new Bing variant will be powered by a next-gen OpenAI large language model that is even more capable than the ChatGPT currently in use by the general public and has been tuned to maximise search efficiency. The new OpenAI model builds upon the successes of ChatGPT and GPT-3.5 to provide users with a system that is both quicker and more precise.
Google, which currently dominates the desktop and mobile search markets, is where users go to type in a query, browse through a list of results, and click through to a desired website. But, Microsoft claims that the new Bing will provide more relevant results to simple inquiries while also being able to find and summarise answers to more complex ones. Integrating the power of ChatGPT into a web browser enables an interactive search function that allows users to refine their search until they identify appropriate what they're searching for.
The latest version of Microsoft's Edge browser also integrates a chat window powered by OpenAI's technology, making it easier to read and comprehend web pages. The new browser is supposed to usher in a new era of search, with more interactional and support the core that make the internet feel more subjective.
While ChatGPT is a conversational interface, Google Bard is an artificial intelligence-powered chatbot which was announced recently. Meanwhile, Google's own AI-generated chatbot, Bard, will be available in the coming weeks. CEO Sundar Pichai first revealed the development on an earnings call a few days prior to the announcement. A small group of beta testers currently have access to Google Bard, but the general public will not be able to try it out until further notice.
