Microsoft adds AI-based Bing to windows computers

Microsoft began integrating its recently upgraded Bing search engine into its windows computer software on Tuesday, with the goal of putting artificial intelligence (AI) at the fingertips of hundreds of millions of people.

The Windows 11 update, the latest in a series of product updates this month from Microsoft, demonstrates how the Redmond, Washington-based software company is pushing ahead with AI despite recent criticism of its technology.

According to the company, Microsoft’s operating system will include the new Bing in desktop computers’ search box, which helps half a billion monthly users navigate their files and the internet. The search engine itself is still in preview mode, with more than 1 million people in 169 countries on a waiting list, according to Microsoft.

The company unveiled its AI-powered Bing chatbot as it seeks to wrest market share from Alphabet’s Google by moving faster with ChatGPT-like search software.

Microsoft has been gathering feedback on the new Bing before releasing it to the public. The engine’s AI chatbot allegedly professed love or threatened some testers, prompting the company to limit long chats that it claimed “provoked” responses it did not intend.

In addition to the new Bing, Microsoft’s Windows update will include software that can connect to iPhone messages and calls starting with a limited set of users, the company said.
