What are AI-powered Knowledge Cards
Microsoft said that Knowledge Cards are designed to help Bing users explore topics that interest them. These cards provide facts, image-based timelines, polls, actions and related topics to a searched query.
“This week we’ve expanded the richness and breadth of knowledge cards supported by Bing using generative AI,” the company said in a blogpost. These Knowledge Cards appear on the right-hand side of the Bing search results page.
What are AI-powered Stories
Along with image-based timelines and polls, Microsoft Bing will also craft AI-generated stories to provide users more ways to consume bite-sized information. These additional ways include text, images, video and audio.
“Stories are perfect for visual and auditory learners,” the company said. Stories are available to all Bing users in English, French, Japanese, German, Spanish, Russian, Dutch, Italian, Portuguese, Polish and Arabic languages.
Issues fixed on Bing Chat
Microsoft has also announced that it has addressed some known issues with Bing chat. These include making it easier for users to copy chat text from the Bing mobile app on iOS. The other issue fixed is improving voice detection in the Bing mobile app so messages aren’t sent before users are done speaking.
The third issue fixed is related to Bing search queries in cases where chats would inadvertently get triggered with the same query when users scroll up.
Bing Image Creator
Earlier this week, Microsoft launched Bing Image Creator, which is powered by an advanced version of the DALL-E model from OpenAI – the company that developed ChatGPT. The feature is currently only available in Creative mode.
