The ChatGPT database previously ran out of knowledge in September 2021 because it was the most up-to-date data the system was initially trained on. However, AI research lab OpenAI has announced that ChatGPT will now be able to respond to even the most advanced queries, as the generative AI assistant can now search for information in real-time.

The feature, called “Browse with Bing,” is currently only open to those with a Plus and Enterprise subscription, but the company says it will roll it out “to all users” soon.

“ChatGPT can now scour the internet to provide you with up-to-date and reliable information, along with direct links to sources. It is no longer limited to pre-September 2021 data,” the OpenAI team wrote in a tweet on the evening of September 27.

At the end of June, OpenAI already added the ability for ChatGPT to browse the Internet in its own, but quickly closed it. After all, users realized that they could force the chatbot to provide them with paid content that exists on the Internet. Now, OpenAI seems to have been able to develop a technology that prohibits such a trick.

Recall that StephenSchwartz from Levidow, Levidow & Oberman got into serious trouble due to the use of the ChatGPT chatbot in the performance of professional duties.
