The launch of a new Bing and a look at the Microsoft/OpenAI relationship

Earlier this week, Microsoft held a special event in Redmond during which they announced the new revolutionary version of Bing. This version is unlike any other search engine and is based on artificial intelligence. Microsoft teamed up with OpenAI and worked tirelessly to launch this one-of-a-kind browser.

On Tuesday, Microsoft announced the new Bing, which incorporates a ChatGPT model into Search. They were quite coy about what OpenAI model undergirded the new system. All they were willing to disclose at this point was that it is more advanced than GPT-3.5 that’s currently being used in ChatGPT. Could this signal the launch of GPT-4? For now, we’ll have to wait and see.

The launch of a new Bing and a look at the Microsoft/OpenAI relationship

One of the biggest differences between Bing’s new Search and ChatGPT is that it’s vastly more aware of the current state of the web. The user interface works in a very similar fashion. Basically, it’s a chat box that runs alongside your search results, but can be easily accessed. However, unlike ChatGPT you can ask it about current events and get fairly accurate results.

Another difference is that once the answer is generated, there will be reference links included to the information used in the response. Also, while you’re waiting for the answer to be generated, Bing will tell you what it’s searching for. We guess that the purpose of the prompt is to show you how the AI interpreted your question to ensure you get the best results.

To summarize, the new Bing Search has two components. One is the OpenAI-driven model that provides foundational knowledge in a communicative way using natural language. However, at the moment it’s only current up until 2021. Alternatively, the second component is the traditional Bing Search. This means that users can decide how they browse the internet and what type of experience they prefer. With easy side-by-side access to both provided in the user interface.

The corporate Vice President of Search, Yusuf Mehdi, states that Bing’s key breakthrough was the ability to merge both of these components into a single service. Microsoft believes this is a big deal, and according to CEO, Satya Nadella, this announcement will herald a new era in search browsers

Kevin Scott and Sam Altman also recently conducted interviews in which they talked about the partnership between Microsoft and OpenAI. The partnership brings together the technological prowess of Microsoft, with the AI and research expertise of OpenAI. 

The collaboration between the two tech companies started in 2018, and since then, Kevin Scott and Sam Altman have worked closely together ever since. Just recently, they signed a new agreement, and while they can’t disclose the details of what the agreement holds, it could mean more innovative services going forward. 

So at the moment, it looks like the partnership between Microsoft and OpenAI is going strong, with both companies benefiting from the relationship. However, there could be some privacy concerns that need to be addressed. For us, this could mean that we’ll see more advancements and revolutionary services being released by both - although nothing official has been announced yet.

    Are these articles AI generated?

    Now the duplicates are more obvious.

    1. boris said on March 19, 2023 at 11:48 pm

      This is below AI generated crap. It is copy of Microsoft Help website article without any relevant supporting text. Anyway you can find this information on many pages.

  2. Paul(us) said on March 20, 2023 at 1:32 am

    Yes, but why post the exact same article under a different title twice on the same day (19 march 2023), by two different writers?
    1.) Excel Keyboard Shortcuts by Trevor Monteiro.
    2.) 70+ Excel Keyboard Shortcuts for Windows by Priyanka Monteiro

    Why oh why?

    1. Clairvaux said on September 6, 2023 at 11:30 am

      Yeah. Tell me more about “Priyanka Monteiro”. I’m dying to know. Indian-Portuguese bot ?

    Probably they will announce that the taskbar will be placed at top, right or left, at your will.

    Special event by they is a special crap for us.

    If it’s Microsoft, don’t buy it.
    Better brands at better prices elsewhere.

    All new articles have zero count comments. :S

    WTF? So, If I add one photo to 5 albums, will it count 5x on my storage?
    It does not make any sense… on google photos, we can add photo to multiple albums, and it does not generate any additional space usage

    I have O365 until end of this year, mostly for onedrive and probably will jump into google one

    Photo storage must be kept free because customers chose gadgets just for photos and photos only.

    What a nonsense. Does it mean that albums are de facto folders with copies of our pictures?

    1. GG said on September 6, 2023 at 8:24 am

      Sounds exactly like the poor coding Microsoft is known for in non-critical areas i.e. non Windows Core/Office Core.

      I imagine a manager gave an employee the task to create the album feature with hardly any time so they just copied the folder feature with some cosmetic changes.

      And now that they discovered what poor management results in do they go back and do the album feature properly?

      Nope, just charge the customer twice.

      Sounds like a go-getter that needs to be promoted for increasing sales and managing underlings “efficiently”, said the next layer of middle management.

    When will those comments get fixed? Was every editor here replaced by AI and no one even works on this site?

    Instead of a software company, Microsoft is now a fraud company.

    For me this is proof that Microsoft has a back-door option into all accounts in their cloud.
    quote “…… as the MSA key allowed the hacker group access to virtually any cloud account at Microsoft…..”

    so this MSA key which is available to MS officers can give access to all accounts in MS cloud.This is the backdoor that MS has into the cloud accounts. Lucky I never got any relevant files of mine in their (MS) cloud.

  12. Andy Prough said on September 7, 2023 at 6:52 pm

    >”Now You: what is your theory?”

    That someone handed an employee a briefcase full of cash and the employee allowed them access to all their accounts and systems.

    Anything that requires 5-10 different coincidences to happen is highly unlikely. Occam’s razor.

    Good reason to never login to your precious machine with a Microsoft a/c a.k.a. as the cloud.

    The GAFAM are always very careless about our software automatically sending to them telemetry and crash dumps in our backs. It’s a reminder not to send them anything when it’s possible to opt out, and not to opt in, considering what they may contain. And there is irony in this carelessness biting them back, even if in that case they show that they are much more cautious when it’s their own data that is at stake.
