According to rumours, Microsoft is integrating its AI chatbot, ChatGPT, into its search engine Bing. Owen Yin, a student, gained access to a preview of the new Bing with ChatGPTand shared a screenshot on Twitter and Medium.
Yin writes about the look of the new search engine: “You’ll have 1000 characters to write your question, which will allow for a good amount of detail in your request. You’ll be able to provide context, provide specific instructions, or list examples.”
In contrast to ChatGPT, which can only access data up to and including 2021, the new Bing should be able to access current information. According to Yin, the AI does several searches on user requests and generates a summary. The new Bing appears to be able to cite its sources as well. These appear as footnote links beneath the results and can be clicked.
