In a two-hour conversation with our columnist, Microsoft’s new chatbot said it would like to be human, had a desire to be destructive and was in love with the person it was chatting with. Here’s the transcript.

Bing, the long-mocked search engine from Microsoft, recently got a big upgrade. The newest version, which is available only to a small group of testers, has been outfitted with advanced artificial intelligence technology from OpenAI, the maker of ChatGPT.

This new, A.I.-powered Bing has many features. One is a chat feature that allows the user to have extended, open-ended text conversations with Bing’s built-in A.I. chatbot.

As A.I. systems continue to evolve and expand, so does their impact on our lives.

  • Microsoft’s new Bing search engine, which is powered by artificial intelligence, has been offering an array of inaccurate and at times bizarre responses to some users.
  • Significant advances in generative artificial intelligence mean robots are coming for artists, too. A tool that aims to thwart A.I. models could help protect their work.
  • Meta has long had technology to rival chatbots like ChatGPT. But the owner of Facebook finds itself struggling not to be left out of the A.I. boom.
  • Disinformation researchers tested what ChatGPT would write after it was asked questions peppered with conspiracy theories. The results were troubling.
  • Following ChatGPT’s splashy debut, writing assistants have emerged to replace editors. Brian X. Chen, our tech columnist, put some of them to the test.
  • We created our own artificial-technology system to understand how easy it is for a computer to generate fake faces. Do these people look real to you?
