Tuesday Tip: A First Look at Bing Chat

Bing ChatTree in a field of wildflowers created by Bing Chat is Microsoft’s version of ChatGPT. If you haven’t used it yet, it’s sitting right there in your Edge browser and is free to use. Simply click the Bing icon at top right of your Edge Browser to bring up the chat dialogue box.

You need to log into your Microsoft account to get full functionality, otherwise you will be limited to only five responses per conversation.

For this Tuesday Tip, I asked Bing Chat to write a quick summary of what it is and why someone might want to use it. Here is what it spit out in seconds unedited:

Bing chat is a conversational AI that can help users with a variety of tasks. It can answer questions, provide information, and even generate creative content like poems and stories. Bing chat is available in multiple languages and can be used by anyone who needs assistance with anything from homework to writing a novel. Some examples of why someone might use Bing chat include:

  • Getting quick answers: If you need to know something quickly, Bing chat can help. It can provide information on a wide range of topics, from science and technology to history and current events.
  • Generating creative content: If you’re stuck on a writing project, Bing chat can help you get unstuck. It can generate poems, stories, and other creative content to help you get your ideas flowing.
  • Improving your writing: If you need help with your writing, Bing chat can provide feedback and suggestions to help you improve. It can also help you with grammar and spelling.
  • Learning a new language: If you’re trying to learn a new language, Bing chat can help. It can provide translations and even help you practice speaking the language.
  • Getting assistance with homework: If you’re struggling with homework, Bing chat can help. It can provide answers to math problems, historical events, and more.
  • Entertainment: If you’re bored and looking for something to do, Bing chat can provide entertainment. It can tell jokes, play games, and even generate celebrity parodies.

As you can see, Bing Chat wrote half of this post for me.

One of the cool features of Bing Chat (and missing from ChatGPT) is the ability to create images. I asked it to create an image of “a single oak tree in the middle of a field of wildflowers,” and it produced four images, the one above being my favorite.

Bottom-line is this – AI is here folks, and if you’ve been avoiding it like that project to finally organize your garage, it’s time to roll up your sleeves and jump in. This technology is here to stay, and more and more platforms and industries are leveraging AI.
