Microsoft To Bring AI To Its Productivity Apps

Microsoft is attempting to position itself at the front of the AI race with further plans of AI tool integration

Microsoft is looking to showcase how artificial intelligence will transform its Office productivity apps such as Word, PowerPoint and Outlook.

The tech giant extended its multibillion-dollar partnership with ChapGPT and DALL-E creators OpenAI, since then we have seen Microsoft overhauling its systems. First, the company shared details of AI tools being integrated into Teams and then Bing got an new update. Following this, Microsoft is now looking toward applying AI to its other apps.

The Verge reports that the company is preparing productivity plans for integrating OpenAI‘s language AI technology and the Prometheus model. Microsoft is likely looking to share details sometime in March. The company seems set on fully embracing artificial intelligence across its current ecosystem.

AI integration

In addition, it appears that ChatGPT models have been tested within Outlook to help improve search results. This includes Word document integration and reply suggestions. We are quickly seeing Microsoft implement these new features into apps that users are already incredibly familiar with and have been using for years, it will be interesting to see just how much AI tools can alter the experience.

The AI race is truly underway and it appears that Microsoft is hoping to lead the way. Sources told The Verge that Microsoft was originally planning to launch the Bing update in late February but the date was pushed forward. Google then announced its Chatbot Bard a day early, however, the showcase featured an inaccurate response from the AI which resulted in Alphabet shares’ value dropping. In Meta‘s full-year 2022 report, Mark Zuckerberg stated that AI would also be a core focus for the company along with the metaverse.

We are only in the second month of the new year and already AI talk is extremely prominent, by the end of the year we can expect to see more companies looking to utilise the power of AI. As for who will be leading the race, only time will tell.
