Microsoft Build may be known as an annual conference, but the general public also has a lot to gain by listening to the big announcements from Seattle. And that’s especially the case this year with new AI products that will change the way you view the internet.
We’re rounding up the biggest takeaways from Day One of Build 2023.
Say goodbye to Cortana and hello to Windows Copilot, the digital assistant for Windows 11. It’s a new type of search bar, but it has benefited greatly from the chatbot’s features in terms of device usage and access to available content. Bing Chat for online resources.
In addition to helping you browse and edit files, programs, and settings on your computer, Copilot can also perform tasks that AI programs are used to: You can ask Copilot to specify a specific playlist and choose a playlist from Copilot to open. on Spotify. You can also drop a document and ask it to clarify or make some changes.
Microsoft will open a preview of Windows Copilot to Windows 11 users in June.
A lot of integrated software comes from new plugin scheme sent from ChatGPT. This should come as no surprise as Microsoft is a major player in OpenAI. Plugins can be called by the user or any of Microsoft’s chatbot programs (what the company likes to call large languages, or LLMs) as needed.
On the other hand, you won’t need to use anything from Microsoft because any chatbot that follows the ChatGPT system must have the same plugins. This announcement, however, may help improve the plugin system. ChatGPT plugins are already available for many services including Expedia, Instacart, Klarna, Slack, and Wolfram. So, if you’re trying to track down a matching route, collect some cool Hawaii, or get some cash for your new pair of shoes, if you can do it through ChatGPT right now, you can go through Windows Copilot.
Windows Copilot will open a preview program for plug-ins starting in the fall.
Microsoft 365 plugins
If you are using it Microsoft 365 Copilot, LLM for Excel, PowerPoint, Word, and other productivity products formerly known as Microsoft Office, you will be able to test more than 50 plug-ins from Atlassian, Adobe, Thomson Reuters, and others. The company expects thousands more to be published as plugins become more available.
In addition to the ChatGPT plugins, these expanded plugins will also be wrapped with additional Microsoft Teams messaging and Microsoft Power Platform connectors.
Things get more technical, faster, but it’s good to say that users will be able to work with data in new, faster ways that are more compatible with the situation – whether it’s third-party plugins or self-written ones.
ChatGPT and Bing Search
All of these plugin issues open up a small, yet important information channel for those who use ChatGPT via the OpenAI website or app. Starting May 23rd, ChatGPT Plus subscribers will see Bing included as an online search option. Through Bing, ChatGPT will be able to use information and events from September 2021, filling one of the most common intelligence gaps even the latest version of GPT-4 has.
Free users will also be able to use ChatGPT and Bing by activating the plugin which should be available “soon”.
