The Bot-Wars Are Heating Up
Ladies and Gentlemen, have you ever felt the frustration of having to search through pages and pages of results on a search engine, just to find the answer to a single, simple question? I mean, who has the time for that these days? But now, the game is about to change! Microsoft is bringing in the big guns and is reportedly integrating the AI technology that powers ChatGPT into its Bing search engine. That’s right folks, Microsoft is taking the fight straight to Google and its gonna be a battle for the ages.
Professor says: “Its kind of a Big Deal”
AI researchers believe that with this move, Bing might have the potential to beat Google at its own game and serve up a search experience that’s more superior. “ChatGPT is the first new technology in more than a decade that may really transform search and that could, at least in principle, upend Google’s market dominance,” says Anton Korinek, an AI researcher and professor of economics at the University of Virginia. And let me tell you, ChatGPT is no ordinary chatbot, this thing is a powerhouse. It allows consumers to interact with their computer in a more natural, conversational form than traditional search engines. It can answer complex questions with a single, clear response, and has capabilities that are far beyond traditional search engines. The sky’s the limit with this technology folks.
Microsoft and OpenAI, the creator of ChatGPT, announced a $10 billion investment in January, solidifying their partnership and keeping both companies at the forefront of generative AI. This technology is what makes ChatGPT so powerful, it can learn from massive amounts of data and create virtually any content format with just a simple text prompt.
But Wait! There’s More (Integrations)
This move by Microsoft isn’t just about search, folks. The company has plans to integrate ChatGPT’s AI technology into other products like Word, PowerPoint, and Outlook, changing the way over a billion people work and accomplish daily tasks. It’s a game changer, folks, and Microsoft is leading the charge.
Be ‘Mindful’ of Competition
Now, Google and DeepMind have been working on similar systems for years, but have yet to release them to the public, out of concerns of unethical behavior and social norms. But, with Microsoft making its move, it’s just a matter of time before Google has to step up to the plate. DeepMind CEO Demis Hassabis even stated that his company is considering its own chatbot, called Sparrow, for a private beta in 2023. And according to sources familiar with the matter, Google also plans to demonstrate a version of its search engine with chatbot features as early as this year.
Google ‘Red’ Faced…
Google search has been becoming more conversational over the years, but with ChatGPT’s release, Google management issued a “code red,” according to The New York Times. Internal teams have been reassigned to start work on AI between now and a company conference in May.
But let’s not forget, Google is still the king of search, with 84% of global market share, compared to Bing’s 9%. But, with Microsoft bringing ChatGPT to the table, the game is about to change, folks. So, keep your eyes peeled, and stay tuned for the next episode in the great AI showdown!

Milestones (UPDATED 11/16/2023)
Microsoft Bing has been evolving its search engine with new AI-powered capabilities that aim to provide users with more complete, creative, and personalized answers. One of the most recent additions is the Bing Image Creator, which allows users to generate images from words with the help of DALL-E 2, an advanced neural network model developed by OpenAI.
The Bing Image Creator is integrated into Bing Chat, a conversational assistant that can also help users with complex questions, summaries, comparisons, and more. Users can access Bing Chat in the Microsoft Edge sidebar, where they can also ask questions related to the web page they are viewing. For example, they can ask for product reviews, travel tips, or wine pairings based on the content of the page.
Bing Chat is also available on the Microsoft Edge mobile app, where users can view PDFs and ask questions about them. Bing Chat can summarize and review the content of the PDF, as well as generate images related to it. For instance, users can ask Bing Chat to create a pie chart of the data in a report, or a logo for a company name in a document.
Bing’s AI features are not limited to chat and image creation. Bing also offers users the ability to write poems, stories, emails, and other types of content with the help of ChatGPT, a powerful language model that can generate text from a simple prompt.
Spoiler Alert (UPDATED 11/16/2023)
Microsoft is not done with innovating its search engine yet. The company has recently announced that Bing Chat will be rebranded as Microsoft Copilot, a more comprehensive and intuitive AI assistant that can help users with various tasks and goals. Microsoft Copilot will support OpenAI’s GPT-3, the latest and most advanced version of the generative language model that powers ChatGPT.
Microsoft Copilot will also offer users more control and customization over their search and chat experience. Users will be able to turn off the search engine feature and interact with the chatbot only, or vice versa. Users will also be able to choose from different modes of chat, such as balanced, creative, or precise, depending on their preferences and needs.
Microsoft Copilot will also be integrated with other Microsoft products and services, such as Outlook, Teams, and Office 365, making it easier for users to communicate, collaborate, and create with the help of AI. Microsoft Copilot will also be able to send emails, schedule meetings, and share files with just a simple request.
Microsoft Copilot is expected to launch in early 2024, and will be available on Microsoft Edge, Windows 10, and other platforms. Microsoft hopes that Copilot will be the ultimate AI companion for users, and will challenge Google’s dominance in the search and AI market.
