Microsoft today announced an upgrade for the Bing Chat feature of the new Bing. Bing Chat v98 will be available starting today, said Mikhail Parakhin, Microsoft’s head of advertising and web services and CEO of Bing.
According to the report, the release of Bing Chat v98 will take place in two phases. According to Parakhin, the first phase is designed to significantly reduce the number of instances where Bing Chat refuses to create content, such as writing code. The second phase will reduce the number of instances where chatbots become disengaged.
In addition, he recommended the Bing Image Creator integrated into the Edge browser, which Microsoft will move behind the “+” if user engagement is poor.
Parakhin replied to users that Bing Image Creator is still “very limited” when it comes to creating AI-generated art, saying that it is being improved quickly and that the problem is “much better than when we first released it Parakhin replied to users that it was being improved quickly and that it was “much better than when we first released it.
Another user said that Bing Chat in creative mode gave the wrong answer, and Parakhin said:
I'm sorry. We're trying to get a faster response: there are two ways to do it in the model: first, run the fast one, then check if the answer is correct, and then run the slower one if it's not. In this case, erroneously waiting for more is actually unreasonable. Our goal is to bring the best user experience for everyone. That's not to say we're holding back -- the example above isn't an attempt to save capacity, it's an attempt to accelerate the innovation model without sacrificing quality. We're not perfect. However, :-)
Microsoft is also working to improve the interactive experience of Bing Chat, where chat conversations can now include image and video search results. The localized search experience has also been improved to make it easier for users to find nearby places like parking lots, malls and offices faster.
