OpenAI announced that ChatGPT’s “Browsing” feature, which searches the internet to provide users with up-to-date information, has exited the beta stage and will be accessible to all Plus and Enterprise (enterprise & business) users.
On September 27, 2023, the business released a beta version of the service that requires customers to enable the “Browse with Bing” option in their settings. However, in order to browse, Plus and Enterprise customers won’t need to flip the beta toggle any more.
Microsoft’s Bing search engine will be used by ChatGPT to conduct online searches. Microsoft has invested more than $13 billion in OpenAI, the largest AI business in the world, and was among the first investors in the company.
According to the business, “ChatGPT can now search the internet to give you reliable, up-to-date information, along with direct links to sources.” The chatbot’s free versions will only be able to access information and data collected before September 2021 and won’t have this feature.
After receiving concerns about circumventing paywalls and privacy settings on websites, OpenAI withdrew the “Browsing” feature that it had initially released in May of this year.
We’ve discovered that the browsing beta sometimes displays content in ways that we don’t want it to. For example, it can unintentionally provide the whole text of a URL to a user who specifically requests it. The business subsequently stated, “We are temporarily disabling Browse while we fix this.”
OpenAI incorporates ChatGPT and DALL-E.
Additionally, OpenAI declared that ChatGPT will be integrated with DALL-E 3, their text-to-image generator. Currently in beta testing and limited to Plus and Enterprise plans, users will need to pick DALL-E 3 from the GPT-4 selector in order to utilize the chatbot’s mobile and online applications. Message limits can change according to capacity.
“Ask ChatGPT what you want to see, from a single sentence to a lengthy paragraph, and it will translate your ideas into incredibly accurate images.” The picture generator was added to Bing Chat and Bing picture Generator prior to being linked with ChatGPT. The third edition of the tool was released last month.
Since ChatGPT’s November 2018 launch, OpenAI has been enhancing the chatbot’s functionality and turning it into a more comprehensive platform for all user requirements. The chatbot can now hear, speak, and see thanks to the additional functionalities. Users may even upload photographs to demonstrate topics to the chatbot or engage in a direct speech conversation with it.
Additional capabilities include “Custom instructions,” which let users provide particular guidelines and information for discussions.
Legal issues to arise?
In the past, ChatGPT has found itself in hot water due to copyright infringement disputes. Sarah Silverman and more than a dozen other well-known writers have filed lawsuits against OpenAI, alleging that the company trained ChatGPT on the works of artists without their consent or money.
With ChatGPT now fully online, there will probably be additional “plagiarism” problems centered around its huge language model GPT-4.
