We'll soon be closing our global survey looking at how communications, public relations and corporate affairs professionals use technology and think about it.
If you still haven't had chance to complete it yet then please do ASAP here. Everyone who completes it can enter a draw to win a pass to the PRovoke Global Summit. It's arguably (we think so!) the world's most important communications conference. You can see details of last year's summit in Washington DC here.
I've already got access to the new ChatGPT powered AI version of Bing. First impressions are impressive. The first question I asked was:
"What are some romantic restaurants in Leeds for a 20th wedding anniversary dinner?"
One of its answers was Chaophraya, which is the restaurant that is now in the building where we had our wedding reception. The restaurant was then called Homarus. It wasn't one that we'd already thought about.
I'm taking it as an omen that I'm going to like the AI-powered Bing.
It adds a new Chat button at the top where you can ask your AI questions. It references the source of its answers, so the accuracy isn't too different to traditional search where you still need to use your common sense to assess them.
If you want to join the waitlist, then follow the link and sign-up. You've got nothing to lose. If you do start experimenting with Bing, then make sure you're signed up to Microsoft Rewards where you earn points for searching. When you're signed into Google or Microsoft, they are both collecting your personal data to provide you with more relevant information... and make money. Rewards is Microsoft sharing some of the rewards of monetisation with you, instead of doing what Google does and keeping it all itself.
