According to a source with knowledge of the matter, Microsoft Corp. aims to integrate OpenAI’s ChatGPT chatbot into its Bing search engine in an effort to steal customers away from Google. According to an unnamed source familiar with Microsoft’s evolving business planning, the company is placing its bets on more interactive and relevant responses to consumers’ searches in the hopes of winning over google users by providing the best answer transcending links.
The Redmond, Washington-based corporation is currently considering the veracity of the chatbot and how fast it can be integrated into the search engine, the individual said, but it is possible that the new function may be rolled out in the next few months. According to this source, the first rollout may only be available to a select few customers as a kind of beta.
According to the source, the software giant has been testing ChatGPT for a while now. The software giant’s Bing service is far less popular than Alphabet Inc’s leading Google search engine. The Knowledge first broke the story of Microsoft’s future intentions.
In November, OpenAI, the artificial intelligence (AI) research company supported by a $1 billion investment from Microsoft, launched ChatGPT for public testing. Now that it can regurgitate anything from mocktails to what appear to be genuine university papers, the chatbot has become a media darling.
Some forecasters and specialists have argued that the AI service’s ability to summarize publicly accessible data can render it a feasible opposition to Google search as well as a catalog of search-generated links, despite the fact that the service occasionally boldly provides misleading data with a luster of authority.
It was only last month that OpenAI CEO Sam Altman tweeted that using ChatGPT for “anything critical” would be “a mistake.” Employees have been concerned about the chatbot for the last month, and last month they raised their concerns to Google Chief Sundar Pichai as well as AI research leader Jeff Dean. Two officials told CNBC that Google bears credibility damage from any faults or inaccuracies in its LaMDA, meaning Language Model for Dialogue Applications, system.
