Microsoft announces AI-powered copilot for Microsoft 365

Just one month after announcing the integration of artificial intelligence with its Bing search engine and Edge browser, Microsoft is announcing Microsoft 365 Copilot. It’s a tool that works with you across the collection of apps, including Excel, PowerPoint, Word, and more. According to the company, the new AI tool will boost creativity and productivity.

The generated AI tool can create drafts of documents or emails that are useful. However, they are also prone to problems such as “hallucinations,” fabricated reactions that sound reasonable but are inaccurate.

‚ÄúCopilot gives you an initial draft to edit and iterate – saving you hours of writing, sourcing and editing time. Sometimes Copilot is right, sometimes it’s very wrong, but it will always give you an edge,” wrote Jared Spataro, an executive vice president at Microsoft, about how the tool will work in Word.

The Microsoft 365 Copilot can also create PowerPoint presentations and Excel data visualization with a prompt, Spataro wrote. It will also compose email replies and summarize long email threads in Outlook.

The tech giant also announced Business Chat, which uses AI in your Microsoft apps to collect and return information in response to a written prompt. Currently, 20 partners are testing the Microsoft 365 copilot. Microsoft has also announced plans to expand the tool more widely in the coming months. Hopefully we will get this feature by the end of this year.
