Microsoft's Bing AND Microsft Edge Browser has recently made significant strides in artificial intelligence (AI). One can say they are bringing the big guns.
Especially with the next Windows 11 update, they promise to bring 150 new features, including the power of Copilot and new AI-powered experiences to apps like Paint, Photos, Clipchamp, and more, right to your Windows PC.
They recently introduced OpenAI's new DALLE-E 3 model, which, according to them, is a superior tool. The DALLE-E 3 model promises better renderings for details like fingers, eyes, and shadows, ensuring that the images generated are more visually appealing than ever before and more realistic and believable for say.
It better be good because now the game is changing. Event Meta is the mother company of Facebook, bringing impressive AI tools like Voicebox CM3leon. By the way, do not forget about the Stable Diffusion XL 1.0
Bing search engine boasts a monthly user base of over 1.1 billion individuals. In the fiscal year 2022, Microsoft achieved an impressive revenue of $11.59 billion through search ads. Notably, Bing's market share witnessed substantial growth, surging from 3.99% to a robust 8.88%. Now, even the underdog browser Opera is making impressive AI improvements to its browser, like Its AI chatbot Aria.
According to Microsoft, Bing search is now all about personalization. Imagine receiving search results and chat responses tailored specifically to your preferences. Thanks to the integration of chat history, Bing can now deliver personalized answers in search and chat.
For instance, if you've previously used Bing to track your favorite soccer team, it can proactively inform you if the team is playing in your destination city when you're planning a trip. If you prefer to keep your chat history private, like a normal human being, there's always the option to turn off this feature in your Bing settings.
Even a privacy freak like me who uses a VPN for normal browsing and net surfing stuff and doesn't believe these claims (These features give you proper protection over tracking your data.) from big companies for a second is still good news.
You have to consider privacy because companies like Google are infamously known for privacy violations and bring features like Google SandBox to give peace of mind to the user. They got some level of control over their data.
AI-Powered Copilot and More
The rollout of Windows 11 newest update promises to bring another exciting addition to the Microsoft family—the AI helper, Copilot. If you are not like me and already made peace with Windows 11, this is a piece of good news for you. Starting on September 26, Copilot will be your trusty sidekick across Bing, Edge, and Microsoft 365.
Enterprise customers can look forward to its availability on November 1, 2023, alongside Microsoft 365 Chat, a brand-new AI assistant designed for the workplace. But the AI experience doesn't end there. Windows apps like Paint, Photos, Clipchamp, and many others are also set to receive their dose of AI enhancements.
Content Credentials and Responsible AI
Ensuring responsible AI usage is a top priority for Microsoft. In their pursuit of this goal, they've introduced Content Credentials. This innovative feature adds invisible digital watermarks to all AI-generated images in Bing.
Using cryptographic methods aligned with the standards set by the Coalition for Content Provenance and Authenticity (C2PA), Content Credentials add transparency to AI-generated images. Even titans in the industry, such as Adobe, Intel, Sony, and various other major players, have already joined C2PA.
Bing Chat: A Game-Changer in Shopping
Imagine having a personal shopping assistant right at your fingertips. That's precisely what Copilot in Microsoft Shopping aims to be. Whether you're using Bing or Edge even the Bing search on another web browser, this feature allows you to find online shopping items more quickly.
When you inquire about a product, Bing goes the extra mile by asking additional questions to understand your needs better, ultimately providing you with tailored recommendations. And here's the clincher—with over $4 billion in savings offered on Microsoft Edge in the last 12 months, you can trust that you're getting the best deals.
DALL.E 3 Model: Elevating Image Creation
Bing isn't just about text-based interactions; it's also delving into the visual realm with the integration of the DALL.E 3 model from OpenAI. This model represents a significant leap forward in image creation.
With a better grasp of details and an improved understanding of user requests, it delivers more accurate and visually stunning images. Moreover, to simplify the image editing process, Microsoft is directly integrating Microsoft Designer into Bing.
Bing Chat Enterprise: Empowering the Workplace
For the more than 160 million Microsoft 365 users who have access to the workplace AI chatbot, Bing Chat Enterprise has become an invaluable tool. Its introduction just two months ago has already garnered an incredible response.
Now, it's extending its reach by becoming available in the Microsoft Edge mobile app. Additionally, support for multimodal visual search and the Image Creator feature is coming to Bing Chat Enterprise.
As a tech enthusiast, tech influencer, and, of course, a Windows user since 2013, I myself love to see these improvements potentially making a significant impact on Windows 11, Microsoft Edge, and the Bing search engine. However, it's still too early to make a judgment. so let's wait and see how these 150 changes and the new AI improvements will affect users.
Windows 10 is on the verge of phasing out, and I, as a user, am still holding onto it until it officially reaches the end of its lifecycle. I'm excited to witness a more improved, optimized, and AI-enhanced Windows ecosystem in the future.
