Bing's ChatGPT-Powered Search Has a Misinformation Problem - Vice
Last Tuesday, Microsoft announced that its Bing search engine would be powered by AI in partnership with OpenAI, the parent company of the popular chatbot ChatGPT. However, people have quickly discovered that AI-powered search has a misinformation problem.
An independent AI researcher named Dmitri Brerton wrote in a blog post that Bing made several mistakes during Microsoft’s public demo of the product. It often made up its own information, such as making up fake pros and cons for a pet vacuum, writing made-up descriptions of bars and restaurants, and reporting unfactual financial data in its responses.
