Microsoft has been investing heavily in OpenAI’s language model technology, and the tech giant is now using the latest GPT-4 model to power its Bing offerings. While Microsoft is cautious about the pace of implementing the new technology, the company has removed the waitlist for users to access the new Bing experience. The move comes as Microsoft organizes an event called “reinvent productivity with AI,” where it will unveil new AI-powered tools for Microsoft 365 and Dynamic 365. Meanwhile, OpenAI’s GPT-4 language model has been launched, promising more advanced features and human-level performance. Users can try out the new model through Microsoft’s GPT-4 Powered Chatbot Bing Chat, which is available without a fee.
Microsoft has been a significant investor in OpenAI, and it has integrated the latest GPT-4 language model into its Bing offerings. However, the company is taking a cautious approach, testing various experiments to onboard multiple users. While the new Bing experience is available immediately, the landing page still displays the “Join the Waitlist” button, but users can sign in and get instant access. Microsoft has not confirmed whether it will remove the waitlist entirely, but it is running tests to accelerate access for some users.
During its “reinvent productivity with AI” event, Microsoft unveiled new AI-powered tools for Microsoft 365 and Dynamic 365. However, the company has also been incorporating AI-powered chatbots into many of its services. Last month, Microsoft introduced the GPT-4 Powered bot to Windows 11’s taskbar, and the Edge browser’s stable version now includes the Bing AI chatbot feature.
OpenAI’s GPT-4 language model has proven to be a hit for Bing, which has nearly 100 million daily active users. To facilitate its customers, Microsoft has removed the waitlist for its GPT-4 Powered Chatbot Bing Chat, enabling users to experience the new language model without paying fees. While the landing page still displays the “join the waitlist” button, Microsoft is running various tests to accelerate access for some users.
OpenAI launched its latest language model, GPT-4, on March 14th, and it boasts many advanced features and human-level performance in many cases. The model is an advanced and modified version of its predecessor, GPT-3.5. To access the GPT-4 Powered GPT by accessing Bing AI chat, users need to pay a $20/month fee for a chatGPT plus subscription.
