Microsoft is hosting a “The Future of Work: Reinventing Productivity with AI” event this week where they will no doubt start to talk about how their new ChatGPT-like AI will transform and adapt the traditional productivity apps like Word, Outlook, Excel, PowerBI, PowerPoint and of course Teams and Dynamics 365.
After announcing and making available in preview their Prometheus Model which is already available in the “new Bing” and Skype apps, last month, Satya Nadella and Jared Spataro, are running an hour-long online event on Thursday 16th March at 3pm UK time (8am PT) to talk more about the AI in Modern Work.
There’s already AI in some core products
Microsoft Teams has been given some AI love already within the new Teams Premium included new AI driven meeting insights and auto action taking.
Dynamics 365 apps have also seen some AI capabilities announced too, to help human workers delegate tedious tasks to machines. This new AI automation tool come in a preview form in a release called Dynamics 365 Copilot, and Microsoft sees automated content creation and algorithmically driven behaviour to help employees using customer relationship management (CRM) and enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems streamline work.
“Copilot brings the power of next-generation AI capabilities and natural language processing to Dynamics 365, working alongside business professionals to help them create ideas and content faster, complete time-consuming tasks, and get insights and next best actions – just by describing what’s needed,” explained Emily He, corporate VP of business applications marketing at Microsoft, in a recent blog post.
