Microsoft 365 brought ChatGPT-style technology

The technology behind ChatGPT, the world's most-talked-about artificial intelligence (AI) system, is being added to Microsoft 365, the industry's most ubiquitous work software. Microsoft refers to the system as Copilot and states that it will be incorporated into Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook. 

The CEO of Microsoft, Satya Nadella, stated that it would "fundamentally alter the way we work."

However, the company acknowledged that Copilot would occasionally make errors. 

The Copilot features include: 

  • Recapitulating the key points of a conversation about meeting software, Teams, as well as recaps for those who arrive late or miss the entire event. 
  • Developing PowerPoint presentations with images based on provided prompts 
  • Drafting emails 
  • Examining lengthy email chains and documents 
  • Developing data summaries and graphs using Excel spreadsheets

Chat GPT has captured the attention of the world due to its ability to quickly provide human-like responses to even the most complex or abstract questions. Occasionally, however, these responses contain inaccurate or completely fabricated information. While Microsoft's Office365 technology is not identical to ChatGPT, it is based on the same language-learning model.

The company acknowledged that Copilot may occasionally be "usefully incorrect." "We would all like to focus on the 20% of our work that truly matters, but 80% of our time is consumed by busywork that slows us down. Copilot reduces fatigue "In a statement, the tech giant said. It has not yet disclosed details about its rollout.

OpenAI released GPT4, an updated version of the model that powers ChatGPT, on Tuesday. Microsoft has invested billions in the company. OpenAI stated that GPT4 possessed "more advanced reasoning skills" than ChatGPT, but cautioned that it may still be susceptible to disinformation dissemination.

ChatGPT is a major contender in the global AI chatbot race. Google, whose lucrative search business could be threatened by ChatGPT, has introduced a competitor known as Bard.

Meta has its own chatbot, Blenderbot, and in China, tech giant Baidu has released a more sophisticated version of its chatbot Ernie, also known as Wenxin Yiyan. Without a doubt, this is a major milestone for generational AI and, more importantly, for the workplace. 

Bringing the capabilities of ChatGPT to Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, quite possibly the most widely used office programmes, places it directly into the daily lives of millions of workers.

Many individuals have utilized ChatGPT to assist them with their jobs, such as writing computer code, speeches, and website copy. It is being used to assist students with their homework. However, the majority of us have enjoyed using it to compose poems, songs, and jokes. A live audience was recently asked who had used ChatGPT. Most hands were raised.

When inquired as to who uses it professionally, however, the number of respondents immediately dropped. Copilot's integration into Office365 is a game-changer. Imagine instead of spending minutes summarizing a tedious report for a client meeting, a chatbot does it in a few seconds. But why stop there? Are you even required to attend the meeting? Simply have Copilot summarize it and send you the notes afterward. Those familiar with the phrase "death by PowerPoint" would have found it quite heartening to view a demonstration of the software's ability to generate a stylish PowerPoint presentation in seconds.
