Unleashing the Power of Bing Integration
Imagine having a conversation with an AI that understands your context and can search the internet for the latest information to enrich the dialogue. With Bing integration, ChatGPT has the power to do just that. This groundbreaking feature enables the AI to pull in fresh data from the web, making it more informed, accurate, and relevant to your needs.
As we delve deeper into the Bing integration with ChatGPT, it’s essential to understand how to navigate this new frontier. So, let’s embark on a step-by-step journey to harness the power of this integration.
Step-by-step, simple as 1,2,3!
Step 1: Accessing ChatGPT and Activating Bing Integration
First things first, you need to access ChatGPT. You can do this by visiting the OpenAI website and navigating to the ChatGPT page. Once there, you’ll find an option to start a conversation with ChatGPT. Click on it, and you’re ready to go!
However, to access the Bing integration, you need a paid account. As we’ve been discussing in this series, a paid account is a must if you’re serious about exploring the new frontiers of AI. Once you’ve upgraded to a paid account, navigate to the settings.
On the left, at the very bottom, you will find your user address, followed by 3 dots. Click this, and a short list of options will appear. There you select settings, which brings you to the screen with your choices.
Here you select “beta features”. This then allows you to activate the features you want. Feel free to go for the double option “Browse with Bing” and “Plugins”. We’ll discuss the second one later.
You’re all set to experience the enhanced capabilities of ChatGPT.
Step 2: Engaging with ChatGPT
Now that you’ve activated the Bing integration, it’s time to start a conversation with ChatGPT.
First, you need to create a new chat. You can do this by clicking the ‘New Chat’ button on the ChatGPT page. Once you’ve done that, you’ll be asked to select a model. Choose ‘GPT-4’, the latest and most advanced model.
Next, you’ll see an option that says ‘Browse with Bing (‘Beta). Make sure to activate this option. This is the key to unlocking the Bing integration. With this option activated, ChatGPT will be able to use Bing to fetch real-time, up-to-date information during your conversation.
Now, you’re all set to start asking questions or discussing topics of interest.
Remember, ChatGPT is designed to understand context, so feel free to engage in a natural, flowing conversation. For instance, you could ask, “What’s the latest news about the integration of ChatGPT and Bing?” ChatGPT, with its Bing integration activated, will fetch the latest information about its integration with Bing, providing you with up-to-date insights.
Step 3: Leveraging Bing Integration
Here’s where the magic happens. When you ask a question or bring up a topic that requires up-to-date information, ChatGPT will automatically use Bing to fetch the latest data. You don’t need to do anything extra – ChatGPT takes care of everything!
Let’s explore some practical examples to see this Bing integration in action.
Example 1: Discussing Current Events
Suppose you’re discussing the latest advancements in renewable energy. Instead of responding based on pre-trained data, ChatGPT can now use Bing to fetch the most recent developments in this field. So, you’ll get insights that are current and relevant.
Example 2: Fact-Checking
Let’s say you’re debating a particular topic and need to fact-check some information. Ask ChatGPT, and it will use Bing to verify the information, providing you with accurate and reliable data.
Example 3: Exploring www.lucdeflem.com
Curious about what you can find on www.lucdeflem.com? Just ask ChatGPT! 😉
For instance, you could simply ask, “What can I find on www.lucdeflem.com?” ChatGPT will use Bing to pull in information about the website, providing you with a brief overview:
“www.lucdeflem.com is the home of AI Leadership. It’s a platform where Luc Deflem, a pioneer in AI Leadership, shares insights and guides individuals on a transformative journey that intertwines the potential of Artificial Intelligence with personal and professional growth.”
But there is a free way to use these same extraordinary possibilities
However, there exists a cost-free method to harness these incredible capabilities. Take an alternate approach. ChatGPT has been integrated into Bing, just as Bing has been integrated into ChatGPT. Let’s reverse our reasoning and explore Microsoft Bing.
The easiest route is to visit www.bing.com. Upon arrival, you will be greeted with a welcoming screen.
Finding your way around should be a breeze. Once you spot the “Try It” button, click on it, and witness the magic unfold. Stop the generation if you encounter how to set up a birthday party (assuming it’s still the initial sequence) and click “New Topic” at the bottom left. If you don’t see a “New Topic” option, you might come across a broom symbol with two stars — that’s the one. It serves as the starting point for initiating a new chat.
Now, brace yourself and let enchantment take over. Anything you have inquired about within ChatGPT, feel free to ask it here. Whether you seek insights into the latest advancements in renewable energy or the benefits it holds for you, pose your question, and your desires will be fulfilled—at least through words.
Now “The 20$ Question “… Why should I have a paid account in ChatGPT if it’s free on Bing.
Well, let’s begin with an opinion. Approximately a year ago, I started utilizing GPT-3 and achieved remarkable feats with it. Then, GPT-4 and ChatGPT were introduced, raising the bar to an entirely new level of astonishment. These potent tools have assisted me in developing my AI Leadership platform and aided in my blog writing endeavours. As a result, I am an ardent fan.
I had the opportunity to compare ChatGPT with Microsoft Bing and Google Bard even before the latest integration of Bing. In my view, ChatGPT remains the supreme co-creator of my work and objectives. OpenAI’s language model stands out as the finest.
However, that is merely my perspective. So, let’s delve into the reasoning, and it’s up to you to determine its significance. Given that I engage in an in-depth exploration of various subjects, I often take dozens or even over a hundred prompts to reach my desired outcome. Unfortunately, with Bing, there is a constraint of only five sequential prompts within the same chat. While it is still possible to achieve remarkable results this way, my personal experience and these limitations have led me to stick with ChatGPT. Now, be cautious; ChatGPT will not remember all 100 prompts (*), but for me, it’s crucial to get way beyond the 5 of Bing.
To be complete: also, ChatGPT-4 has limitations today
Nevertheless, there is a caveat. ChatGPT-4 also has its own limitation of a maximum of 25 prompts every three hours. Therefore, when I extensively utilize these models, I combine both approaches. I conduct some Bing research and then feed the gathered information into ChatGPT when ready for a thorough exploration.
In my personal experience, I have found that using Bing with the Microsoft Edge browser (which is also compatible with Mac) provides better results than using the integrated search feature in ChatGPT.
Ultimately, the decision on which option to choose rests solely with you. These incredible possibilities offer a range of choices, and personally, I consider the task at hand when making my decision.
There may be a third rationale behind my approach. I prefer to double-check, or even triple-check, the facts. Hence, I write and construct using ChatGPT, supplemented with direct information from Bing, and then assess the validity of my work using Google Bard.
Please note that this entire framework is still undergoing extensive development. The necessity to integrate multiple tools is absolutely crucial when utilizing these resources. I come across these illusions almost every day, and it can be enjoyable (sometimes, when you have a lot of spare time) to delve a little deeper.
I engaged in a conversation with ChatGPT and received intriguing responses. However, I’ll leave you with the content of its final response, emphasizing that we, as users, bear the responsibility:
“As a user, it’s important to be aware of the limitations of AI and to critically evaluate the information provided by AI systems. Always cross-check information from multiple sources and be aware that AI systems, while powerful, are not infallible and can sometimes produce incorrect or misleading information.”
My main concern is how we will be able to fight the misuse of AI for creating fake news if AI itself seems to have all the trouble of the world to avoid creating it itself.
Up to now, I was aware that we had to be cautious that AI is taught with all the input it gets, be it right or wrong; I like to call it the SISO effect (Stupi In Stupid Out), but we’ll clearly have to be even more cautious than that.
Regarding Google Bard, there’s one thing to note if you reside in a country where it is not yet available: you’ll need to utilize a VPN set to the US. It’s a simple and necessary step, but it ensures access to the tool without complications.
A Glimpse into the Future: ChatGPT and Plugins
As we marvel at the transformative power of Bing integration, there’s even more exciting news on the horizon. ChatGPT’s compatibility with plugins opens up a realm of possibilities, enhancing its capabilities and versatility.
Whether you’re looking to draft more effective emails, brainstorm ideas, or simulate characters for video games, these plugins promise to revolutionize your interaction with ChatGPT.
