Microsoft limits the number of people who can chat with its Bing AI chatbotfollowing the media coverage of the bot which goes off the rails during long exchanges.

Bing Chat will now answer up to five consecutive questions or statements for each conversation, after which users will be prompted to start a new topic, the company said in a blog post on Friday. Users will also be limited to 50 responses in total per day.

The restrictions are meant to keep conversations from getting weird. Microsoft said long discussions “may confuse the underlying chat model.”

On Wednesday, the company said it was working to fix issues with Bing, which launched just over a week ago, including factual errors and strange exchanges. Bizarre responses reported online include Bing telling a New York Times columnist to ditch his marriage for the chatbot, and AI asking a Reddit user to apologize about whether it’s 2022 or 2023.

The chatbot’s responses also included factual errors. Microsoft said Wednesday it was tweaking the AI ​​model to quadruple the amount of data it can find answers from. The company said it will also give users more control over whether they want precise answers, which come from Microsoft’s proprietary Bing AI technology or more “creative” answers that use OpenAI’s ChatGPT technology.

Bing’s AI chat feature is still in beta testing, with potential users on a waiting list for access. With this tool, Microsoft hopes to get a head start on what some say is the next revolution in Internet research.

ChatGPT technology makes a lot of noise when it launched in November, but OpenAI itself warned of potential pitfalls and Microsoft acknowledged the limitations of AI. Despite The impressive qualities of AIconcerns have been raised about the use of artificial intelligence for nefarious purposes such as spreading false information and disseminating phishing emails.

Along with Bing’s AI capabilities, Microsoft would also like to jump on search powerhouse Google, which last week announced its own AI chat model, Bard. Bard had his own issues with factual errors, fumbling for an answer during his first public demo.

In its Friday blog post, Microsoft suggested that the new AI chat restrictions are based on information gleaned from beta testing.

“Our data showed that the vast majority of you find the answers you’re looking for within 5 rounds and only ~1% of chat conversations have more than 50 messages,” he said. “As we continue to receive your feedback, we will explore expanding chat session limits to further improve search and discovery experiences.”
