Microsoft recently fixed the chatbot’s “unresponsive” tendencies in answers, which was a result of restrictions imposed to avoid rude responses seen by users, accoring to The Verge.
Head of web services at Microsoft, Mikhail Parakhin, tweeted recently that this update includes reduction in cases where Bing refuses to reply “for no apparent reason,” and a reduction in instances of “hallucination in answers.”
Recently, Microsoft updated Windows 11 and added the AI-powered Bing search to the taskbar. It has also integrated it in Skype and mobile phones.
