The Microsoft Bing Chat development team gave users a wonderful gift. Paying constant attention to the development of its chatbot, the company has significantly expanded the text limit for accessing it – from 2,000 to 4,000 characters.
New rules and bulk requests
Important information about the new rules was shared by Microsoft’s head of advertising and web services, Mikhail Parakhin, through his Twitter account. He wrote: “This is a small step for Bing Chat…”, referring to the famous words of Neil Armstrong, uttered by him after the first step on the moon: “This is a small step for a man, but a giant leap for all mankind.”
Mikhail Parakhin’s post was provided with a screenshot of the Bing Chat dialog, which shows a limit of 0/4000 characters instead of the previous 0/2000. Microsoft has received criticism in the past for a capped limit that many users said didn’t allow for complex queries. The company replied that the volume of more than 2 thousand characters can confuse artificial intelligence.
Apparently, the developers at Microsoft have developed a more powerful and resource-intensive version that can handle such tasks. Now the company is no longer worried about the possibility of the chatbot not being able to handle the responses to requests.
Improving Bing Chat
Microsoft continues to actively improve its Bing Chat chatbot and has already introduced an updated version based on the GPT-4 language model, even before Google showed its development called Bard to the general public, notes NIX Solutions. Some tech giants are still not ready to completely abandon their partnership with Google. Microsoft is expected to showcase even more new innovations at the annual Bild Developer Conference on May 23rd.
