Microsoft plans to hold a media event on February 7 at 1P ET to announce the integration of ChatGPT into its Bing search engine. Although this will be an in-person event for the media, the company will not stream the event live.
The AI-themed event will start at 1P ET (10AM PT), and the company is expected to talk about its $10 billion exclusive partnership with OpenAI (the creators of ChatGPT) and how the chatbot will integrate into Bing to provide more human conversational answers. The new integration temporarily showed up for some users this week, giving us an early look at what to expect.
The Verge reveals that the invite reads, “Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella will share some progress on a few exciting projects,” indicating multiple announcements in addition to the upcoming Bing updates. It’s expected that Microsoft will announce the plans to bring AI to other consumer and enterprise products. Some of the rumors point out that AI features will come to products like Word, PowerPoint, and Outlook. Furthermore, Microsoft recently launched a new Microsoft Teams Premium that includes AI features from OpenAI.
According to already available information, the software giant plans to use the OpenAI GPT version 4 to integrate the chatbot into the Bing experience. This new version provides a ChatGPT that’s faster and smarter.
The event comes only moments after Google announced Bard, the search giant’s AI chatbot that will compete with ChatGPT. The AI technology has been under development for some time with limited testing, but with the popularity of ChatGPT, Google is being pressured to respond quickly to the Microsoft announcement.
