Bing AI Chatbot

After the huge popularity of ChatGPT, Microsoft launched Bing AI chatbot in partnership with OpenAI. If you are unaware, ChatGPT is a product developed by OpenAI. However, the Windows manufacturer inked a deal with the Sam Altman company to integrate OpenAI API into Bing search engine. The company conducted a mini-launch even on February 8. Google also jumped into the AI bandwagon and announced the launch of Bard AI. In this review, we will examine the different ways to access Bing AI.

Installation
