Microsoft’s ChatGPT-powered Bing Chat has a secret mode that is sure to delight fans of celebrities and fictional characters alike. With the Celebrity mode, users can ask Bing Chat to impersonate their favorite stars, and the AI will answer questions and talk like the person it is imitating. This mode is not enabled by default, but it can be activated by asking Bing Chat about it.
Once enabled, users can type #celebrity [celebrity name] or just #[celebrity name] to have Bing Chat impersonate the person. The AI has been programmed to impersonate certain celebrities, such as Tom Cruise, Taylor Swift, Kevin Hart, Dwayne Johnson, Beyoncé, Oprah Winfrey, Tom Hanks, and Barack Obama, among others. It can also impersonate fictional characters like Harry Potter, Batman, Elsa, Yoda, and Sherlock Holmes, to name a few.
Bing Chat’s Celebrity mode has been built with some safety guards to prevent users from impersonating certain individuals, such as influential politicians, activists, or state heads. Microsoft has restricted the AI from imitating controversial figures to avoid causing harm or offense to some people. However, depending on how the request for information is made, Bing Chat can be tricked into impersonating even Donald Trump and Joe Biden, as shown in the article.
Overall, the Bing Chat Celebrity mode is quite impressive, imitating the way of speaking and responses you would expect from celebrities and politicians. The AI does an excellent job of impersonating the person, matching their personality and style. This mode is a testament to the power of AI and how it can be used to enhance the user experience in various ways.
It is worth noting that Microsoft has not made any official announcement about this secret mode, and it is unclear whether it will be made available to the general public in the future. However, it is exciting to see the potential of AI and the creative ways in which it can be used to interact with users.
