Very recently, Google announced its own Bard conversational AI which for all intents and purposes is the competitor to the OpenAI ChatGPT. Now, Microsoft has its own announcement to make. With its ongoing partnership with OpenAI, the company is now integrating a ChatGPT-like AI model with both its Bing internet search engine and its Edge web browser.
Described by the company as “your copilot for the web”, Microsoft says that the ChatGPT-like AI model is completely new, and actually more powerful than ChatGPT itself. The integration of the AI into Bing will not only give users a new chat experience for complex searches, but also improve search result relevance in general. Which are both bold claims, and it remains to be seen in the AI integration into the company’s search engine can help it unseat Google from the internet search throne.
As for the Edge browser, Microsoft claims that the ChatGPT-like AI model integration will allow the browser to help you compose content. The example provided by the company is the writing of a LinkedIn post, where the browser will help “update te tone, format and length of the post”. The company claims that all this tweaks will be done according to the web page that you’re on. All these can be accessed from the browser’s sidebar.
All that being said, none of these are available yet to the wider public. For now, Microsoft is only opening the ChatGPT-powered versions of Bing and Edge as a limited preview on desktop. And the preview is very limited indeed, as the web page provides you with preset questions to ask Bing. For anything more substantial, you’ll have to sign up to be in a wait list. Like Google’s Bard, there’s no word on when any of these will be available to everyone. Which, in the end, is the ultimate proving ground for any of these kinds of AI applications.
