Microsoft is continuous to tinker with its new synthetic intelligence (AI) chatbot Bing Chat, this time adjusting its character so it’s much less cussed and extra useful.
Bing Chat, which is powered by ChatGPT, garnered plenty of hype when it launched in March, permitting you to ask all of it kinds of questions, and it could intelligently reply in a chat-like interface. Even higher, you might ask it to create issues, similar to photographs and even code apps, and it could.
Nevertheless, if anybody has used it lately, you’ll have seen that Bing Chat developed a little bit of an angle, and would refuse to create sure issues. That is precisely what occurred to me once I requested it to assist me design a brand new working system for an upcoming article – it stubbornly refused to assist, regardless of fairly fortunately doing so a number of days earlier.
Not solely was this irritating, however it additionally took plenty of the enjoyable out of utilizing Bing Chat. So, it’s good to see information (as reported by Neowin (opens in new tab)) that Microsoft is rolling out an replace to handle this.
Based on a tweet by Mikhail Parakhin, Microsoft’s head of Promoting and Internet Companies, a brand new replace is rolling out that “ought to see huge discount within the variety of circumstances when Bing Chat refuses to create one thing (write code, for instance).”
Beginning to ship Immediate v98 as we speak: it’s a two-stage course of, by tomorrow you need to see huge discount within the variety of circumstances when Bing Chat refuses to create one thing (write code, for instance). Then the second stage can be deployed, decreasing disengagements.April 5, 2023
Based on Parakhin, this replace (referred to as Bing Chat v98) will roll out in two levels. The primary will cut back the cases the place Bing refuses to assist create issues, whereas the second stage will cut back ‘disengagements.’ I assume this refers to these, once more irritating, instances when Bing Chat will take into account a chat or process full when it isn’t.
Parakhin additionally responded to folks asking in regards to the new Bing Picture Creator function, which was lately launched to permit customers to create AI-generated artwork by Bing Chat, however which some folks have discovered fairly restricted. Parakhin claims that this function is quickly bettering.
Additionally quickly bettering – it’s significantly better than after we first launched it.April 5, 2023
It is good to see Microsoft proceed to enhance Bing Chat – there’s an enormous quantity of potential right here, and the corporate have to be happy that individuals at the moment are really inquisitive about Bing. It definitely appears to have captured the general public’s creativeness in the best way that rival Google’s Bard AI has not – and to maintain us , Bing must preserve evolving. Thus far, Microsoft seems to agree.
