About Bing Chat Enterprise at IU

On this page:


Microsoft Bing Chat Enterprise is available for use by Indiana University faculty and staff. It is built on the same AI models and data as ChatGPT-4, so you can use it to write and summarize content, create code, and answer complex questions. Bing Chat Enterprise also has access to current internet data, enabling it to provide real-time responses to current events (a feature not available in ChatGPT, which is based on data up to 2021).

To use Bing Chat Enterprise, log in using your @iu.edu email address and your IU passphrase.

Precautions about using Bing Chat Enterprise at IU

At IU, Bing Chat Enterprise is approved to interact with data classified up to and including University-Internal data if you are logged into Bing with your Microsoft 365 at IU account. Because of the protections in place, Bing Chat Enterprise is the recommended way to use generative AI within the IU environment.

Make sure you are logged in with your IU account (your @iu.edu email address and IU passphrase) to access Bing Chat Enterprise and not the consumer-based Bing Chat service.

Always use your IU account for Indiana University business. Personal (free) non-IU Microsoft accounts are not approved for institutional data. When working in Microsoft 365 apps, check the top right to see which account you're signed in with; in Microsoft Edge, check the top left.

Incidental personal use

Bing Chat Enterprise does not save any chat history, and it does not retain chat prompts or responses. Microsoft has no eyes-on access to it to train the underlying models. Bing Chat Enterprise also doesn't have access to organizational resources or content within Microsoft 365, such as Word documents or PowerPoint presentations. Only content provided in the chat by users is accessible to Bing Chat Enterprise.

Bing Chat Enterprise has important privacy and protection information. For details, see Bing Chat Enterprise Privacy and Protections.

Even if you use generative AI tools for activities that do not share personal or institutional data, you should still check the tool's output for accuracy. Since these tools have been known to produce inaccurate content (sometimes called "hallucinations"), verify any factual information generated by an AI tool, and make sure to reference the tool as you would any other source.

If you have any concerns about privacy related to Bing Chat Enterprise at IU, or if you have questions about the type of data that can be shared with Bing Chat Enterprise, email privacy@iu.edu.
