In its Microsoft 365 corporate software suite, Microsoft is integrating generative artificial intelligence technologies like the well-liked ChatGPT messaging tool. The market leader in workplace technology said that Word, PowerPoint, and Excel will all be able to take advantage of the new Copilot A.I. features.

A large language model, or LLM, is a class of artificial intelligence software that forms the foundation of the Copilot technology. In recent years, researchers have enhanced LLM skills to make them more able to comprehend and react to the text.

Microsoft claims that the Copilot features are more potent than just “OpenAI’s ChatGPT incorporated inside Microsoft 365,” according to a press release. The new Copilot in Word tool, according to the business, would allow users to create a “first draught to revise and iterate on while saving hours in writing, sourcing, and editing time.”

Users of Microsoft 365 will be able to call Copilot into a Microsoft Teams meeting to tell attendees about relevant projects, organizational changes like recent hires, and even information on coworkers who may have just returned from vacation.

Also available across all Microsoft Office programs, Copilot can be used in Word to create documents based on other files. The text produced by AI can then be freely modified and changed. As Copilot is essentially a chatbot, you may even ask it to format or analyze Excel data, construct a 10-slide PowerPoint presentation from a Word document, or do any other task.

“It works alongside you, embedded in the apps millions of people use everyday: Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, Teams, and more,” said Microsoft 365 head Jared Spataro. “Copilot is a whole new way of working.”

“Today marks the next major step in the evolution of how we interact with computing, which will fundamentally change the way we work and unlock a new wave of productivity growth,” Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella said in a statement. “With our new copilot for work, we’re giving people more agency and making technology more accessible through the most universal interface — natural language.”

Microsoft did note, however, that “sometimes Copilot will be right, other times usefully wrong,” indicating that the LLM technology used today is prone to giving incorrect answers.
