Microsoft Introducing Ads in Bing Chat
Microsoft users are growing tired of the company’s constant efforts to advertise its products throughout the computer. The firm aims to introduce ads in Bing Chat – a move that could bring in significant revenue by promoting its services. While internet companies generally earn through advertising and premium services, Microsoft has faced criticism for its aggressive marketing policies.
Bing Chat Could Have Ads Soon
Previously, social networks allowed companies to promote their advertisements in designated spaces, and Windows too has similar provisions in installed operating systems. Now, Microsoft is looking to place ads in Bing Chat – a blog post by the firm reveals this decision. Bing Chat is increasingly getting popular among users, and Microsoft thinks it could be a significant platform for revenue generation. The company seems to be in a unique position, with Google absent in the market of AIs for search engines.
Microsoft plans to integrate advertising into the chat stream in a manner that is “useful and natural.” This move marks another step towards monetizing its new tool. However, the introduction of advertising in this new service confronts several users because of the way Redmond manages data privacy.
More Issues for OpenAI and ChatGPT Development
Microsoft has considered offering ads in ChatGPT, which has several OpenAI models. However, AI’s regulation may face significant changes soon. There are calls for better protection of users’ data in Europe, a significant development for AI in a world where more and more people are using it.
The introduction of advertising in Bing Chat has raised objections because of the way Microsoft and Redmond manage user data. It remains to be seen how events unfold and if Microsoft can indeed get its way.
