Is Bing Chatbot Similar to Chatgpt?
Microsoft’s Bing is powered by OpenAI, the same tech used by ChatGPT. Both Bing and ChatGPT are similar but Bing can provide more information. Bing can deliver results that go above and beyond compared results provided by ChatGPT. Since Bing is a search engine linked to the web, it helps provide the most relevant search results, providing easy solutions and access to quality content generated by web publishers.
ChatGPT doesn’t provide search results, as it’s not linked to the web. Instead, it provides text, it sources its data from a high range of texts, which helps in understanding the queries and context of the chat. Bing crawls the web automatically to create an index of URLs to furnish various search results appropriate to the user-initiated searches. The content includes several online resources such as websites, videos, documents, images, and more.
Meanwhile, ChatGPT contains a pre-training process, where the system gets fed with a high range of data and fine-tuned to perform various tasks such as translation and summarizing the content. Therefore, ChatGPT and Bing do contain few similarities, but both AI tools do contain several key differences as well.
