1 Mins read

According to a report, Microsoft is reportedly working on adding AI capabilities to its Office productivity apps, such as Word, PowerPoint, and Outlook, to enhance their functionality. The company is said to be integrating ChatGPT-like features into these apps, enabling users to leverage artificial intelligence for tasks such as word processing, email management, and presentations. Microsoft has already started beta testing its AI model based on technology from Open AI, leveraging its investments in the artificial intelligence firm.

Sources familiar with the matter have revealed to The Verge that Microsoft is set to showcase the integration of its Prometheus Model with OpenAI’s advanced technology. While no specific date was mentioned, the tech giant is reportedly preparing to give a preview of the technology on Word, PowerPoint, and Outlook in the coming weeks. The new AI features are expected to improve the functionality of Microsoft’s productivity apps for word processing, presentations, and email management.

A screenshot shared by The Verge shows a Compose tab that allows you to provide a prompt at the top with a topic, then set options like Tone (Professional, Casual, Enthusiastic, Informational, Funny), Formats (Paragraph, Email, Blog Post, Ideas) and Length (Short, Medium, Long). The image also shows a Generate draft button on the sidebar that is expected to generate text based on the options that were selected.

Microsoft recently announced that it plans to integrate advanced AI technology, similar to ChatGPT, into its Bing search engine to better compete with Google. A Microsoft executive stated that the new AI capabilities for Bing will be optimized for online search and will be faster, more accurate, and more powerful than ChatGPT. The technology will be built with the San Francisco startup, optimized for making searches online.

The partnership between Microsoft and OpenAI began over three years ago, when the latter invested $1 billion to develop a supercomputer to train OpenAI’s machine learning models on data from digital versions of books, news articles, blog posts, and other publicly available information that can be scraped online.
