Microsoft has announced a new version of its Bing search engine, enhanced with ChatGPT's AI technology.

In addition, a corresponding AI should also be integrated into the company's Edge browser, as Microsoft announced on Tuesday at an event at its headquarters in Redmond, Washington state.

According to the company, the "new Bing" can already be tried out by all users in a desktop version, initially with a limited number of search queries.

However, users could sign up for full access in the future.

A mobile version should be available shortly.

Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella said advances in artificial intelligence would transform "every category of software that we know of."

This includes the search.

It is important to develop AI in accordance with human preferences and societal norms.

"You can't do that in a lab, you can only do it out in the world."

Microsoft manager Yusuf Mehdi gave an example of how the newly equipped search engine works: According to AP, he asked the chatbot to compare the most influential Mexican painters - on the one hand, it provided typical search results, but also created a fact box on the right side of the ad .

This summarized details about Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo and José Clemente Orozco.

The ChatGPG program, on the basis of which the extensions are created, is a product of the OpenAI company.

The group also recently completed a multi-billion dollar deal with Microsoft.

Among other things, Open AI provides its cloud and supercomputer for operation.

In return, it became known that Microsoft wants to integrate OpenAI's AI into its own products.

AI in Bing includes warning notice

Among other things, Microsoft had announced an expansion of the video conferencing software Teams, whose paid premium version is now gradually being expanded with functions based on ChatGPT.

According to Microsoft, this includes AI-generated summaries of meetings and matching tasks formulated by the AI ​​for the participants or anyone who missed the meeting.

An extension for Bing and other Microsoft products was also expected.

The AI ​​extension now presented is supplemented by a warning.

"Bing is powered by AI, so surprises and errors are possible," reads a message that will appear at the bottom of Bing's new homepage.

"Be sure to check the facts."
