The intense competition in the chatbot space is reflected in the ever-increasing amount of contenders in the LMSYS Chatbot Arena leaderboard, or in my modest contribution with the SCBN Chatbot Battles I’ve introduced in this blog and complete as time allows. Today we’re exploring WildVision Arena, a new project in Hugging Face Spaces that brings vision-language models to contend. The mechanics of WildVision Arena are similar to that of LMSYS Chatbot Arena. It is a crowd-sourced ranking based on people’s votes, where you can enter any image (plus an optional text prompt), and you will be presented with two responses from two different models, keeping the name of the model hidden until you vote by choosing the answer that looks better to you. I’m sharing a few examples of what I’m testing so far, and we’ll end this post with a traditional ‘SCBN’ battle where I will evaluate the vision-language models based on my use cases.

Microsoft has just announced the launch of its own ‘GPT Builder’ for customizing chatbots, similar to OpenAI’s ‘GPT Store’. This was part of a broader announcement of Copilot Pro, a premium AI-powered service for Microsoft 365 users to enhance productivity, code, and text writing. According to Satya Nadella’s announcement today on Threads, Microsoft and OpenAI appear to be competing entities, yet they are working on the same technology (GPT), augmented by Microsoft’s investment in OpenAI. It certainly seems like a strange business strategy for Microsoft. Please provide some insight into the move’s rationale and strategic motivations.
