The integration of Bing with ChatGPT has been the talk of the town as Microsoft and OpenAI are set to host a launch event. The event will take place on February 8th at Microsoft headquarters in Redmond, California, where they are expected to announce several new services, including the integration of ChatGPT on Bing, making it a strong rival to Google.
According to an invite obtained by The Verge, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella will “share some progress on a few exciting projects,” which suggests there could be multiple announcements during the event, including OpenAI designating Microsoft as its exclusive cloud service provider. There are also rumors that OpenAI might announce its next-generation ChatGPT 4, which will be exclusively available on Bing.
In addition to the search engine powered by OpenAI, Microsoft is reportedly working on incorporating ChatGPT into other services such as Office 365, Teams, and Outlook, which will benefit from OpenAI’s AI services in the future.
Unfortunately, Microsoft has not announced any live streaming for the event, which will be held at the company’s headquarters and not open to the public.
Google has also launched its own AI-powered search engine, Bard, which is an experimental conversation AI service that competes with ChatGPT from OpenAI. However, Microsoft’s investment of $10 billion in OpenAI and plans to integrate AI capabilities into its software products, including Bing, puts the tech giant in a strong position in the search engine market.
