Microsoft has announced that it will launch AI-powered versions of its internet browsers, Bing and Edge, marking a significant milestone in the evolution of the AI-powered internet browser. The company is calling the new versions of the browsers “AI copilot for the web” and claims that they will deliver improved search results, complete answers, a new chat experience, and the ability to generate content.
The new Edge browser, for example, allows users to ask for a summary of a financial report and then use the chat function to compare it to a competitor’s financials, all to provide a better browsing experience for users. Additionally, the new Edge can help users compose content, such as a LinkedIn post, by giving prompts and then updating the post’s tone, format, and length.
Microsoft is leveraging some of the latest technologies to power its new AI-powered versions of its internet browser. For instance, the new Bing and Edge are powered by a next-generation OpenAI large language model, which is more potent than ChatGPT and customised explicitly for search. The company has also developed its Prometheus model to work with the OpenAI model and best leverage its power.
“AI will fundamentally change every software category, starting with the largest category of all – search,” said Satya Nadella, Chairman and CEO of Microsoft. “Today, we’re launching Bing and Edge powered by AI copilot and chat, to help people get more from search and the web.”
The preview of the new AI-powered versions of its internet browser, Bing and Edge, is currently available for testing and will be rolled out to the public in due time. The company’s decision to launch AI-powered internet browsers is a significant step forward in developing AI technology and its integration into our daily lives.
In conclusion, the AI-powered internet browser is set to revolutionise how we browse the web with improved search results, complete answers, a new chat experience, and the ability to generate content. Microsoft’s new AI-powered internet browsers, Bing and Edge, are available for preview testing and are expected to be widely adopted by users. The company’s decision to invest in the development of AI technology is a testament to its commitment to making the world a better place through technology.
