Tech giant Microsoft has launched Bing Chat Enterprise, a cutting-edge chat platform powered by artificial intelligence (AI) designed specifically for work environments.
Currently, in its preview phase, Bing Chat Enterprise is already available to over 160 million users, according to a recent blog post by the company.
This new offering provides organizations with artificial intelligence-powered chat capabilities for work, while also ensuring robust commercial data protection.
Users can rest assured that their data, both incoming and outgoing, remains secure within the organization and will not be leaked to external sources.
“Chat data is not saved, and Microsoft has no eyes-on access — which means no one can view your data. And, your data is not used to train the models. Whether researching industry insights, analysing data, or looking for inspiration, Bing Chat Enterprise gives people access to better answers, greater efficiency and new ways to be creative,” Microsoft noted.
Similar to Bing Chat, Bing Chat Enterprise relies on web data and delivers comprehensive answers supported by citations. It also offers visual answers, incorporating graphs, charts, and images, all in accordance with the company’s AI principles. In the coming days, Bing Chat Enterprise will be available as a standalone service, priced at $5 per user per month.
Additionally, the tech giant has unveiled its multimodal capabilities through Visual Search in Bing Chat. This feature harnesses the power of OpenAI’s GPT-4 model, empowering users to upload images and conduct web searches for related content.
“Take a picture, or use one you find elsewhere, and prompt Bing to tell you about it — Bing can understand the context of an image, interpret it, and answer questions about it,” Microsoft added.
In the future, Microsoft also plans to introduce this feature to Bing Chat Enterprise gradually. Moreover, the company has disclosed that Microsoft 365 Copilot will be accessible to commercial customers at a monthly rate of $30 per user. This offer will apply to Microsoft 365 E3, E5, Business Standard, and Business Premium customers once it becomes widely available.
