Microsoft's Bing Chat will receive a major quality improvement update on Thursday, February 23, according to Mikhail Parakhin, Microsoft's Managing Director of Advertising and Web Services.
This latest update aims to improve the naturalness, accuracy, and usefulness of Bing Chat's answers and suggestions, while addressing issues reported by users and testers.
One of the main issues reported by users was the confusing chat model. With the new update, Bing Chat is expected to have a clearer conversation model, which will allow users to better understand the flow of the conversation and provide them with more accurate responses. The update will also address answers that are off-topic, which was another issue that users raised, as it was frustrating to get irrelevant answers when asking a question.
Inappropriate content is a critical issue that was also pointed out by users. The update is expected to provide more robust and effective measures to prevent Bing Chat from generating inappropriate content. This way, users can be more confident that the answers provided by Bing Chat are appropriate for everyone.
Low relevance is another issue identified by users and testers. The new update will use the next generation of OpenAI's ChatGPT language model, which is significantly more capable than the previous version available from November 2022. This new model is expected to improve the naturalness, accuracy and usefulness of Bing Chat responses.
Bing Chat allows users to engage in conversations with Bing AI powered by ChatGPT technology. The goal of Bing Chat is to provide users with a more engaging and personalized search experience that can answer questions, create content, and provide suggestions on various topics. With the upcoming quality improvement update, Bing Chat is expected to provide users with a more seamless and satisfying chat experience.
Bing Chat is currently available for select testers on mobile devices as well as desktop browsers. Users can access Bing Chat by typing “chat” in the search box or by clicking the chat icon on the top bar on the new bing main page.
