Microsoft aims for AI-powered Version of Bing
Microsoft may introduce the new function by the end of March in an effort to compete with Alphabet’s search engine Google, according to a report from a San Francisco-based technology news website.
Microsoft announced its intention to incorporate OpenAI’s DALL-E 2 image-generation software into Bing in a blog post last year. Microsoft and OpenAI declined to comment.
Microsoft offered $1 billion in cash to San Francisco-based OpenAI in 2019, supporting the startup. In order to build artificial intelligence supercomputing technologies on Microsoft’s Azure cloud computing service, the two have established a multi-year agreement.
On November 30, OpenAI made the ChatGPT chatbot, its most recent development, available for free public testing. The chatbot is a piece of software created to replicate human-like dialogue in response to user input and can answer a wide variety of queries while mimicking human speaking styles.
