Microsoft has revealed one of its future AI plans, stating that artificial intelligence will be integrated into workplace emails, slideshows, and spreadsheets in the not-too-distant future. This is part of the company’s ongoing collaboration with OpenAI, the company behind the popular chatbot ChatGPT.
Satya Nadella, CEO of Microsoft, stated that “AI capabilities will completely transform all of Microsoft’s products.” “Every product of Microsoft will have some of the same AI capabilities to completely transform the product,” Nadella said.
Mr. Nadella stated that his company will act rapidly to popularize tools developed by OpenAI, the research lab responsible for the ChatGPT chatbot as well as the image generator Dall-E 2, which converts language prompts into novel images. Nadella went on to say that instead of being afraid of new AI tools, workers should embrace them.
Microsoft also stated that it intends to market ChatGPT to its cloud computing customers. In a new challenge to Google, Microsoft has also worked to integrate OpenAI’s image-generation software into its Bing search engine.
Microsoft has invested $1 billion in OpenAI. As a result, it is quite optimistic about the broader economic potential of tools like ChatGPT, which can generate fluid-sounding text quickly based on short queries or prompts.
