This is how Microsoft will compensate websites Bing and ChatGPT steals information from

Microsoft’s industrial-scale theft of hand-written information is about to destroy thousands of small businesses, and I am entirely unsurprised. 

Today, Microsoft unveiled ChatGPT integration with Bing and Microsoft Edge. It’s a huge moment for Bing, which remains the butt of almost every search engine-related joke. Bing has long played second fiddle to Google, owing to Google’s superior algorithmic search accuracy, Google’s global focus on localized results, and better tools. Bing has limped on mainly by bribing users into using it with Microsoft Rewards, and providing at least adequate search results for the most basic queries. But for the first time since, well, forever, Bing potentially has a shot at a big comeback. 

Google was recently put on “red alert,” as the Microsoft-backed OpenAI consortium unveiled ChatGPT-3. The toolset represents a conversational AI that can create accurate, human-sounding text based on virtually any context. ChatGPT-3 is, however, trained entirely on content from the web, learning more rapidly than any team of human beings could possibly dream of. As part of Microsoft’s efforts to make Bing relevant, it’s taking this very rare opportunity to offer a new vision for search engines, which essentially removes a user’s need to “click” through to an article.

In some of Microsoft’s examples, you can see above how AI-enhanced search queries presented to the end user. It’s not dissimilar to Clippy or Cortana back in the day, offering suggestions to the user based on their present activity. However, thanks to the power of ChatGPT-3, the suggestions are actually well-written and relevant. And of course they are, because the information is “borrowed” from trusted sources.
