The New Bing AI Explained

In order to integrate AI into Bing, Microsoft built a stack called Prometheus, which is a layer that interacts with OpenAI’s GPT. The idea is to make Bing interact with OpenAI through the knowledge of the web that Microsoft has through Bing, thus:

– Improve relevancy.

– Annotate the answers.

– Up-to-date results.

– Understanding geolocation.

– Increase safety.

Search coming together with answers, chat, and browsing.

What Microsoft has called the co-pilot for the web.

In short, Prometheus is the layer that, at various stages, interacts with OpenAI to enhance some of its features, specifically for search.

This integration has been done both for Bing search and the Edge browser.

The main idea is to enable a conversational interface like ChatGPT to become viable within search.

Thus Prometheus, on top of OpenAI, enables Microsoft to adapt ChatGPT for search, within Bing.

On the one side, you find OpenAI capabilities integrate into search on the right side.

And also to have a “chat” feature activated, where you can have a conversation through Bing, thus putting search on the side.

This is how the new Bing looks like.

Here Bing leverages core fundamentals, chat orchestration, prompt generation, inference, and interactive experience, through the Microsoft infrastructure.

Bing leverages three layers, with a safety system in middle to fine-tune the OpenAI foundational layer for safety.

Thus, this is how the whole technological stuck looks like!
