Google recently lost over $100 Billion in valuation due to a factual error found in the content featured on an ad generated by its AI tool Bard. It looks like Microsoft’s new Bing, powered by ChatGPT is also no different. According to a report from CNBC, Microsoft’s ChatGPT-powered Bing did miss some numbers while analysing the earnings of the two companies. An independent researcher Dmitri Brereton wrote in a substack post that “Bing AI got some answers completely wrong during their demo.” Further errors were also found in the search results for a travel plan and specifications of a vacuum cleaner. Microsoft and Google are rushing to launch their version of AI to get ahead of the competition while their AI tools are nowhere near being perfect for prime-time usage. A Microsoft spokesperson has spoken to CNBC confirming, they were aware of the errors in the report analysed by AI-powered Bing and the company is working on making the tool better by listening to user feedback.
