Microsoft has announced several news related to Generative Artificial Intelligence in its products and services. The first is the availability, in trial version, of GPT-4 on Azure OpenAI Service. The second, the DALL-E AI imaging integration so much in the Bing search engine as in the Edge browser, in a sidebar. The latter has been achieved through the incorporation, although still in the testing phase, of Bing Image Creator in both products.
Azure OpenAI Service customers who want access to GPT-4 can now sign up on the waiting list to get access to the new version of GPT, which they can use in the development of their applications and services with Artificial Intelligence. In addition, users can also access GPT-4 capabilities that are built into Bing and Microsoft 365 Copilot.
Regarding the generation of images through Artificial Intelligence in the Bing search engine and in the Edge browser, it is only necessary to ask the chatbot to create an image through a direct description of what we want to see in it, or to make it an action follow up on a previous question.
But since Microsoft is aware that the results may be incorrect, it is going to apply various additional protections to those of Azure OpenAI. Thus, it will take care of blocking the creation of potentially harmful images. In addition, it will clarify which images are AI-generated, which it will do through clarifying watermarks embedded in them.
Bing Image CreatorFor now, it will be available to various Bing users, both in its desktop and mobile versions. They will be able to access Image Creator through a specific website. Edge users will also have access if they are part of the testing group. In this case, it will be necessary to activate the Creative Mode to be able to test the image generator.
Microsoft plans to expand this creative tool to users of Balanced and Precise modes at a later date. It also plans to adjust the behavior of the system through multi-step chats. For now, this technology is only compatible with English, although they are already working on extending it to more languages.
