Microsoft is planning to integrate ChatGPT into Bing search engine, Word, and PowerPoint

Microsoft may be planning to use a special ingredient to take its search engine, Microsoft Bing, and other applications to a whole new level. The tech behemoth is reportedly considering incorporating ChatGPT’s technology into Bing, Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. If this is correct, Google, which is currently the most popular search engine in the world, will face significant competition.

Microsoft to use ChatGPT technology

According to ‘two people with direct knowledge of the plans,’ Microsoft is planning to launch an AI-powered version of Bing, according to The Information. According to the report, the new feature could be available as early as the end of March, and Microsoft intends to compete with Google with this major update.

It is also reported that ChatGPT’s technology will be used in other applications such as Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, and Excel, enhancing user experience.

If ChatGPT is included in MS Office tools, it is expected to be of great assistance when writing articles, creating emails, and generating other forms of text using simple prompts.

NYC public schools ban ChatGPT

In another recent development, the New York City’s Department of Education banned ChatGPT from all of NYC’s public schools’ devices and networks. The deputy press secretary for the New York public schools, Jenna Lyle, in a statement said that access to the chatbot had been restricted on schools’ networks and devices owing to ‘concerns over its negative impacts on student learning’. She further elaborated that even though the tool was capable of coming up with quick answers to questions, it won’t help in building ‘critical-thinking and problem-solving skills’ among students.

What is ChatGPT?

ChatGPT is an AI-powered chatbot created by the Artificial Intelligence (AI) research firm OpenAI. Natural language is understood by the chatbot, and it responds in a human-like manner. It is based on the GPT-3.5 language model. On November 30,2022, the chatbot was unveiled as a prototype and quickly gained popularity and became the talk of the town. ChatGPT had over a million users within the first week of its launch.

People frequently share essays, poetry, and other forms of content generated by the chatbot, and they are astounded by its ability to respond in a human-like manner and remember conversations as they go.
