Microsoft announces enhanced Bing and Edge powered by OpenAI

Michail, 08 February 2023

After its recent $10 billion investment in OpenAI, Microsoft is now overhauling its Bing search engine and Edge browser with a next-generation OpenAI large language model. Bing and Edge will now tap into OpenAI’s infrastructure to give you summarized answers to your specific search queries instead of presenting you with an overwhelming amount of search result links.

Microsoft is also applying the new AI model to its search algorithm and claims the new OpenAI model used in Bing and Edge is faster, more accurate and more capable than ChatGPT.

Bing will retain its classic search results page though it will now give more relevant results for basic queries. Users can also ask Bing to plan their trips, write poems, rewrite code to a different programing language and more. The new AI chat feature will bring out a sidebar where you can type out short or long search queries, receive answers and then refine your question until you receive the answer you need.

Microsoft Edge will also come baked with OpenAI and users will be able to get contextual information for the page they are browsing. The sidebar in Edge has chat, compose, overview and site info tabs. Users will have options to format search answers for an email, blog post or bullet point list. Users can also set a length for the answer ranging from short to medium and long.

Yes. Though it has unsupported hardware but runs Windows 11 fine. It has an old i7 CPU with 1.6GHZ clock speed. Nvidia Geforce 310M graphics. 500GB HDD. 8GB DDR3 Ram. Runs Windows 11 and 10 better than Windows 7 that it came with. And for Chrome yes ...
