Microsoft 365, the company’s most popular work software, is getting the technology that powers ChatGPT, the artificial intelligence (AI) system that has received the most attention in the world. The program, which Microsoft is referring to as Copilot, will reportedly be integrated into Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook.
Satya Nadella, the CEO of Microsoft, said it would “fundamentally change the way we work.”
The business acknowledged that Copilot would occasionally err.
Copilot performs the following duties:
- Recapitulating the main points of a discussion on meeting software, Teams, as well as offering recaps for anyone who arrives late or leaves before the event is over
- using prompts to create PowerPoint presentations with images
- composing email
- examining lengthy email and document chains
- Making data synthesis and graphs in Excel spreadsheets
Chat GPT has attracted attention due to its quick delivery of human-like answers to inquiries, even those that are extremely difficult or abstract.
These responses, though, occasionally give incorrect or entirely made-up information.
Even though Microsoft’s technology for Office365 isn’t just ChatGPT, it uses the same approach to language learning.
Copilot may occasionally be “usefully wrong,” the company acknowledged.
“We all want to focus on the 20% of our work that really matters, but 80% of our time is consumed with busy work that bogs us down. Copilot lightens the load,” the tech giant said in a statement.
Details about the roll-out have not yet been disclosed.
OpenAI recently released GPT4, an outdated version of the model that powers ChatGPT. Microsoft has made significant financial commitments to the company.
OpenAI claimed that ChatGPT’s “reasoning skills” were “less advanced” than those of GPT4, but cautioned that GPT4 might still be prone to spreading misinformation.
The leader in the global AI chatbot field is ChatGPT.
ChatGPT may pose a threat to Google’s lucrative search business, so the company has introduced a rival called Bard.
Blenderbot, a chatbot developed by Meta, and Wenxin Yiyan, a chatbot developed by Chinese tech giant Baidu, are both examples of chatbots.
Bringing ChatGPT’s capabilities to the widely used Word, Excel, and PowerPoint work programs—possibly the most popular ones in most offices—places it squarely in the daily lives of millions of employees.
However, the majority of us have been having fun and using it to create songs, poems, and jokes. I recently asked attendees at a live event if they had used ChatGPT. Most raised their hands. However, when I asked who was using it professionally, the majority immediately fell back down.
