Bing Chatbot vs ChatGPT -Welcome tips

I love the conversation style option because ChatGPT does not offer these options.

Me: What is the difference in Bing chatbot between creative, balanced, and precise?

Bing chatbot:

Creative responses are those that are imaginative and often humorous. They can include jokes, puns, and other forms of wordplay.

Balanced responses are those that present both sides of an issue or argument in a fair and unbiased way. They can help users make informed decisions by providing them with all the relevant information.

Precise responses are those that provide specific and accurate.

Interview with the Bing Chatbot

OK, now I will have a nice conversation with the Microsoft Bing Chatbot.

Me: Are you ChatGPT? (As far as I understand, Microsoft invested 1 billion dollars in OpenAI and is using that technology in the Bing Chatbot.

Bing chatbot: Yes, ChatGPT is an artificial intelligence (AI) chatbot developed by OpenAI and launched in November 20221. It is a large language model chatbot based on GPT-3.5 and has a remarkable ability to interact in conversational dialogue form and provide responses that can appear surprisingly human.

I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any other questions.

Me: That was the answer that I received a month ago. I think Bing Chatbot did not understand the question and just send some information about ChatGPT 3.5. I asked the same question 1 month later and got a different answer.

Me: Are you ChatGPT?

Bing chatbot: No, I’m not ChatGPT. I’m Bing, a search engine chatbot. How can I help you today? 😊

Me: It is interesting that the chat is evolving and it is improving the answers. I will try to insist on the question related to ChatGPT. Are you based in ChatGPT technology?

Bing chatbot: No, I’m not based on ChatGPT technology. I’m a chatbot powered by the Microsoft Bing search engine. Is there anything else you would like to know? 😊

Me: Well, I think now Microsoft does not want to be related to ChatGPT.

Bing Chat is based on ChatGPT 4

Me: Is Bing Chat based on ChatGPT 4?

Bing chatbot: Yes, Bing Chat uses GPT-4 in the formulation of its answers1. GPT-4 stands for Generative Pre-Trained Transformer 4 and is a large multimodal model that accepts image and text inputs, emitting text outputs2. The main difference between GPT-4 and GPT-3.5 lies in their respective use cases; while GPT-4 is designed for general-purpose NLP tasks such as text generation or summarization, ChatGPT-3.5 specializes in conversational AI applications like chatbots or virtual assistants3. While GPT-3.5 is quite capable of generating human-like text, GPT-4 has an even greater ability to understand and generate different dialects and respond to emotions expressed in the text.

I hope this helps!

Me: I will ask about SQL Server and check if it shows accurate information.

Me: What is new in SQL Server 2022?

Bing chatbot:

Bing links suggested

Bing chat shows you the keywords used to search for information. I like that. It also shows you links to learn more. I think it is important to verify the sources. ChatGPT does not have that information.

How does Bing chatbot work?

Me: How does the Bing chat work internally?

Bing chatbot: Bing chatbot is powered by a kind of artificial intelligence called a neural network. It is designed to understand natural language and respond to user queries in a conversational manner. The chatbot can be accessed by going to bing.com in Microsoft Edge and selecting the “Chat” tab. You can also use it on iPhone and Android.

I hope that helps! Let me know if you have any other questions.

Me: Yes, but where does the Bing chatbot look for the information?

Bing chatbot: Bing chatbot gathers information from a variety of sources, including Bing search results1. It uses a neural network to understand natural language and respond to user queries in a conversational manner2. I hope that helps! Let me know if you have any other questions.

Me: Yes, it looks like it searches information from the internet and other internal sources, reads the information and compiles the answer. If the sources on the internet are wrong, Bing Chatbot may send the wrong information. It does not seem to verify the information in multiple sources.

Bing history

Me: When was the Bing chatbot released? What is its history?

(I really love the Tab key to autocomplete).

Bing Chatbot vs ChatGPT - autcomplete

Bing Chatbot: Bing Chatbot was first introduced in 2016 as a chatbot for Bing search engine users. The chatbot was designed to help users find information more easily by answering their questions and providing relevant search results. It was initially available only in the United States, but it has since been expanded to other countries.

The chatbot uses natural language processing (NLP) and machine learning algorithms to understand user queries and provide relevant responses. It can answer questions on a wide range of topics, including news, weather, sports, entertainment, and more.

In 2021, Microsoft introduced a new version of the chatbot that is powered by OpenAI’s GPT-3 language model. The new chatbot is capable of generating more human-like responses and can even generate creative content such as poems, stories, and jokes.

I hope this answers your question. Let me know if you have any other questions.

Me: Can you provide me with information about SQLServerCentral? Who is the owner?

Bing chatbot: SQLServerCentral is owned by Redgate software together with Simple Talk. SQLServerCentral and its editor, Steve Jones, have complete editorial independence from Redgate1.

I hope that helps! Let me know if you have any other questions.

Me: Nice. What about ChatGPT?

ChatGPT: SQLServerCentral is a website that provides resources, articles, forums, and tools related to Microsoft SQL Server. It was founded in 2001 by Steve Jones and Brian Knight, both of whom are SQL Server experts and authors. SQLServerCentral is currently owned by Redgate Software, a software company that develops tools for database development, deployment, and management.

Redgate Software acquired SQLServerCentral in 2011, along with other websites in the SQL Server community, such as Simple-Talk and SQLServerPedia. Since then, SQLServerCentral has continued to be a popular resource for SQL Server professionals, offering a wide range of content and tools to help them stay up-to-date with the latest developments in the SQL Server world.

Me: As you can see, ChatGPT provides more information and more details in the answer. However, the Bing chatbot provides nice references and nice related topics:

Let’s try another question.

Question to ChatGPT about Bing Chatbot

Me: Is Bing chat based on ChatGPT?

ChatGPT: I'm not aware of any chat service called "Bing Chat." However, Microsoft has a chatbot framework called the Microsoft Bot Framework that can be used to create chatbots that can be integrated with various messaging platforms, including Bing.

Me: There are 2 options here. ChatGPT is forced to ignore the competitors, which is bad because it means that the information is manipulated by humans. The second option is that ChatGPT is not smart enough to find information. In both cases, I will give a 0 to ChatGPT for this test. Bing Chatbot answers this question at the beginning of this article.

Me: What about Bing Chatbot?

Chatbot about Azure Synapse Link for SQL Server 2022

Bing Chatbot: Azure Synapse Link for SQL Server 2022 is a new feature that allows you to replicate your data from a SQL Server 2022 database to an Azure Synapse Analytics dedicated SQL Pool1. It is powered by the new change feed functionality that has been added to SQL Server 2022 and Azure SQL Database2. This functionality allows us to monitor tables for changes as they happen without the additional overhead that is brought along by a change data capture (CDC)–based data movement solution2.

Once set up, the way Azure Synapse Link for SQL Server 2022 works, is to automatically capture data changes in SQL Server it to Azure Synapse Analytics, by pushing only what’s new or what’s changed. Note that this is done in the background and it is near-real time3.

I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any other questions.


In this article, we compared Bing Chatbot and ChatGPT. Basically, both look for information on the web. If they do not understand the information correctly or someone writes wrong information on the web, these AI bots can send us wrong information.

I like Bing Chatbot because it provides sources of information provided. That way, we can verify the accuracy of the answer and check that the source is trustable.

By the other hand, we have ChatGPT which does not provide the sources (it can, but you need to ask for it). ChatGPT offers a more comprehensive response while Bing Chat gives a brief answer.

So, who is the winner?

I lived ChatGPT because it provided more information.
