With this chatbot you “will be able to talk” with Taylor Swift, Harry Potter or Gandalf

The Bing search engine ‘chatbot’ hides a celebrity mode that makes artificial intelligence (AI) respond to the user in the way the famous person would, as if they were interviewing him.

The new Bing with AI has a series of modes that allow you to transform the personality of the ‘chatbot’ so that it interacts with the user as if it were an assistant, plays with him or helps him solve a personal problem.

The usual one, and established by default, is the browser mode, but through a command headed by the hash symbol (#) activates the selection of the chat mode and choose Sydney, Assistant or Friend.

As detailed in Bleeping Computer, these modes are experimental. However, one more has been added to the list, so that the user can select the celebrity mode.

On this occasion, what it does is simulate that the user is talking to a famous person. This virtual version will answer questions about his life, his career and his hobbies and will do so in the style that the real person would.

As the aforementioned medium clarifies, this mode currently only admits a small number of celebrities, including Elon Musk, Tom Cruise, Taylor Swift, Dwayne Johnson, Beyoncé and Oprah Winfrey. You can also adopt the personality of fictional characters such as Harry Potter, Batman, Elsa, Yoda, Gandalf or Katniss Everdeen.

On the other hand, Microsoft has also introduced two other modes that allow you to profile the personality of the search engine, so that it offers more creative or more precise answers.
