For years, Google has dominated the search engine market, leaving Bing in the dust. But Microsoft is now determined to change that with a massive update integrating OpenAI’s Large Language Model (LLM). As a result, the new Bing is set to revolutionize how we search for information by offering answers in a conversational style, making it faster and more efficient. Bing is currently in limited release, but there’s a way to gain early access.
