Big new AI thing: Microsoft Bing (which uses GPT-4 in Creative Mode), accepts images as input.— Ethan Mollick (@emollick) June 21, 2023
The results are impressive. I fed it a meme, it could understand context & read text! A new dimension of AI use just opened up. So expect a flood of AI Twitter influencer threads… pic.twitter.com/pshP6J44tK
More specifically, Bing Chat now allows users to easily upload images and get help from chatbots to decipher them. For example, users can easily upload emojis and have chatbots interpret them, or upload photos of unknown places to perform a query.
Additionally, a Reddit user uploaded an image of a mouse and asked the chatbot to identify the brand, to which the chatbot responded. This feature is designed to capture the interest of users. Microsoft has made significant progress in combining Bing search with OpenAI ChatGPT. So, in its ongoing efforts, the tech giant has released an update to the Bing app for iOS devices. In addition, Microsoft has improved Bing Chat’s text-to-speech capabilities to include more language support, covering more than 30 languages.
Anyone can easily try Microsoft’s AI chatbot with no waiting list or Microsoft account requirements. The updated version of Bing offers enhanced features that allow users to interact with artificial intelligence chatbots for comprehensive, human-like answers, citing primary sources and up-to-date information.
In addition, chatbots can help create poetry, stories, and music, and use Bing’s Image Creator to generate images from text and help people in their creative endeavors through the same platform.
