Microsoft introduces ChatGPT-style technology to Office.
The technology that powers the world’s most talked-about artificial intelligence (AI) system, ChatGPT, is being integrated into Microsoft’s most widely used business software, Microsoft 365.
The system is dubbed Copilot by Microsoft, and it will be integrated into Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook.
Satya Nadella, CEO of Microsoft, stated that it would “fundamentally change the way we operate.”
Yet, the company conceded that Copilot might occasionally make mistakes.
Copilot’s features include:
- Summarizing the important points of a discussion using meeting software, Teams, and offering recaps for someone who arrives late or misses the entire event
- Making PowerPoint presentations with photographs from prompts
Creating email draughts
- Examining lengthy email chains and documentation
- Making data summaries and visualizations in Excel spreadsheets.
Chat GPT has captured the world’s interest with its ability to offer human-like solutions to even the most complicated or abstract topics.
Unfortunately, those responses are sometimes incorrect or wholly fabricated.
While Microsoft’s technology in Office365 is not ChatGPT itself, it is based on the same language-learning methodology.
The company admitted that Copilot could be “usefully inaccurate” at times.
“We all want to focus on the 20% of our job that is truly important, but 80% of our time is spent on busy stuff that drains us. Copilot reduces the workload “In a statement, the IT behemoth stated.
It has not yet revealed roll-out details
OpenAI released GPT4, an updated version of the model that powers ChatGPT, on Tuesday. Microsoft has poured billions of dollars into the company.
GPT4 had “more advanced reasoning skills” than ChatGPT, according to OpenAI, but it could still spread misinformation.
ChatGPT is a front-runner in the global AI chatbot race.
Google, whose lucrative search business may be jeopardised by ChatGPT, has launched a competitor called Bard.
Meta has its own chatbot, Blenderbot, and in China, the tech giant Baidu has released a more advanced version of Ernie, also known as Wenxin Yiyan, its chatbot.
Make no mistake: this is a watershed moment for generational AI and, more importantly, the workplace.
Bringing the ChatGPT powers to the humble Word, Excel, and PowerPoint programmes, which are likely the most used work programmes in most offices, places it directly in the daily lives of millions of workers.
I’ve heard of people using ChatGPT to help them with their jobs, such as writing computer code, speeches, and website copy. Students use it to assist them with their homework.
But the majority of us have been having fun with it, using it to write poems, songs, and jokes. I recently asked a live event audience who had used ChatGPT. The majority of hands shot up. When I asked who was using it professionally, most of them immediately recoiled.
Including Copilot in Office365 is a game changer. Instead of summarising that long, boring report for your client meeting, imagine having a chatbot do it for you in a matter of seconds. But why stop there? Do you even need to attend the meeting? Simply ask Copilot to summarise it for you and send you the notes afterwards.
For anyone familiar with the phrase “death by PowerPoint,” seeing a demo of it creating a stylish PowerPoint presentation in moments was quite heartwarming.
Microsoft would argue that doing so frees up your time to work on other projects. But what if Copilot beats you to those things as well?
