Microsoft has introduced Microsoft 365 Copilot, an artificial intelligence (AI)-powered co-pilot designed to combine large language models (LLMs) and business data and Microsoft 365 applications to drive productivity in workplaces.
The new offering is presently in testing with a small group of commercial customers in order to gather essential feedback needed to enhance the models as they scale.
According to the company, Microsoft 365 Copilot is integrated into Microsoft 365 apps including Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Outlook, Teams, and others.
Microsoft has also announced a new experience called Business Chat, which has been designed to work across the LLM, the Microsoft 365 apps, and users’ emails, chats, calendar, documents, meetings, and contacts.
Based on the morning meetings, emails, and chat threads, Business Chat will produce a status update, said the tech major.
The new Co-pilot in Power Platform is expected to allow developers of all skill levels expedite and optimise development with low-code tools through the launch of two new capabilities within Power Apps and Power Virtual Agent.
In Word, Microsoft 365 Copilot will write, edit, summarise, and create along with users while they work.
The PowerPoint Co-pilot integration will allow the creation process by converting ideas into designed presentations by using natural language commands.
Microsoft modern work and business applications corporate vice president Jared Spataro said: “Copilot combines the power of large language models with your data and apps to turn your words into the most powerful productivity tool on the planet.
“By grounding in your business content and context, Copilot delivers results that are relevant and actionable. It’s enterprise-ready, built on Microsoft’s comprehensive approach to security, compliance, privacy and responsible AI.
“Copilot marks a new era of computing that will fundamentally transform the way we work.”
Earlier this month, Microsoft launched Microsoft Dynamics 365 Copilot, an AI-powered co-pilot in both customer relationship management (CRM) and enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems.
