Microsoft loosens restrictions on Bing search engine at user request
Microsoft said Tuesday that it was relaxing some restrictions introduced last week on its new Bing search engine at the request of users.
Microsoft Corp. ( MSFT ) said Tuesday that it was relaxing some restrictions introduced last week on its new Bing search engine at the request of users.
Before the initial restrictions were announced last week, testers found that the search engine, which uses the technology behind the recently popular chatbot ChatGPT, was sometimes producing glaring errors and disturbing responses. In some cases, the search engine seems to express love and hate.
Microsoft said last week that prolonged interactions had confused Bing, and the company added restrictions on using the engine because of that. This includes asking up to 5 questions per conversation, for a total of up to 50 questions per day.
But Microsoft said on Tuesday it would increase the limit to six questions per conversation and 60 questions per day. The company also said it plans to increase the daily limit to 100 questions soon.
