I asked the new Bing AI chat about me.
The new Bing is like having a research assistant, personal planner, and creative partner at your side whenever you search the web. With this set of AI-powered features, you can:
Ask your actual question. When you ask complex questions, Bing gives you detailed replies.
Get an actual answer. Bing looks at search results across the web to offer you a summarized answer.
Be creative. When you need inspiration, Bing can help you write poems, stories, or even share ideas for a project.
In the chat experience, you can also chat and ask follow-up questions such as, “can you explain that in simpler terms,” or, “give me more options” to get different and even more detailed answers in your search. However, in chat, each conversation will be limited to 5 interactions, to keep the interactions grounded in search."
Here's the promise:
It lied, citing completely incorrect information which has never existed on my (correctly cited as a reference source) LinkedIn profile. For the record I've never worked, or ever claimed to work for, GHD and I currently work for LDE.
From the Microsoft Readme
'Bing aims to base all its responses on reliable sources - but AI can make mistakes, and third party content on the internet may not always be accurate or reliable. Bing will sometimes misrepresent the information it finds, and you may see responses that sound convincing but are incomplete, inaccurate, or inappropriate. Use your own judgment and double check the facts before making decisions or taking action based on Bing's responses.'
But also from their own page:
"Answers are just the beginning
The new Bing offers you reliable, up-to-date results – and complete answers to your questions. Of course, it also cites the sources."
Asked again it just made something up. Again I've never worked for Aurecon, it has never appeared on my LinkedIn profile. It then got grumpy and stopped talking when called out about that. It's certainly not intelligent but maybe, with that response, it is 'human'. It is literally Dr Karl's often cited 'drunk guy in a bar who knows everything...'.
