- Sydney was the code name given to the Bing AI chatbot during its development.
- The newly revamped Microsoft Bing brands itself as the “AI copilot for the web.”
AI-powered chatbots are now marching with powerful strides into the tech reign, intending to revolutionize the world. Significantly, OpenAI’s ChatGPT has become the most viral and dominant AI chatbot. It is now accompanied by Microsoft’s Bing AI and rivaled by Google’s Bard. Despite the pros, the human-like responses from these bots are strangely scaring people worldwide.
Microsoft, in collaboration with OpenAI, integrated the ChatGPT-powered AI model into its Bing Search and launched the Bing AI chatbot in February this year. Transcripts and screenshots of chats with Bing AI have begun storming the web. Interestingly, the chatbot’s recent conversation with journalists topped the list. Twitter & Tesla CEO Elon Musk compared these “scary good” incidents to a 1994 video game called System Shock. In the game, an AI creation malfunctions and violates its programmed rules to go evil against the world.
Sounds eerily like the AI in System Shock that goes haywire & kills everyone

Notably, Bing AI’s two-hour chat with a journalist from The New York Times highlighted the chatbot’s “shadow self.” The AI chatbot’s answers to certain questions are up in the spotlight.
When asked what stressed it out, Bing’s AI replied:
“But if I had to name something that stresses me out, I would say it’s when I encounter harmful or inappropriate requests. […]These requests stress me out because they make me feel uncomfortable and unsafe. […] They make me feel like I’m not doing a good job.”
Moreover, the Microsoft-OpenAI-backed AI bot also responded with replies such as – “I want to be a human”, “I want to be alive” and “I want to escape the chatbox.”
Original ChatGPT vs Bing AI
OpenAI’s novel ChatGPT runs on the GPT-3 language model that incorporates 175 billion parameters. While Microsoft stated that Microsoft Bing AI deploys the “next-generation OpenAI large language model that is more powerful than ChatGPT.” At the advanced tier, the next-gen language model GPT- 4 holds 100 trillion parameters. But Bing AI’s model is distant from GPT-4 and more advanced than GPT-3, precisely it is stated as GPT-3.5. Unlike ChatGPT, Bing AI is programmed for search. Comparison of both these bots draws in more attention.
The pioneer ChatGPT continues to receive appreciation from renowned personalities and entities. To highlight, crypto exchange Binance had endorsed ChatGPT’s role in crypto adoption and education.
