OpenAI’s ChatGPT Breaks Knowledge Barrier: Now Empowered to Browse the Web in Real-Time for Up-to-Date Answers
Generative AI Assistant Gains 'Browse with Bing' Feature, Offering Real-Time Web Research Abilities for Plus and Enterprise Users.
In a striking turn of events, OpenAI has ushered in a new era for its ChatGPT AI, marking a significant departure from the system’s original limitations. Previously, ChatGPT’s knowledge was restricted to information available up until September 2021, causing a major stir upon its debut in November. However, on a recent announcement made by OpenAI, the company declared that ChatGPT has now acquired the ability to retrieve real-time information from the web, effectively bridging the gap between its knowledge base and the present.
This groundbreaking feature, aptly named “Browse with Bing,” operates seamlessly within the standard Bing Chat interface. It provides users with a clear indication when it’s searching the web for information and includes citation links with its responses. OpenAI emphasized the practicality of this browsing feature for tasks that demand the most current information, such as technical research, product selection, or travel planning. In a subsequent tweet, the OpenAI team affirmed, “Browsing is available to Plus and Enterprise users today, and we’ll expand to all users soon. To enable, choose Browse with Bing in the selector under GPT-4.”
