After launching a preview of its search engine, Bing, equipped with artificial intelligence capabilities, Microsoft is ready to integrate AI into other apps and services.
The American company has in fact confirmed an appointment for March 16 during which it will outline the future of the world of work permeated precisely by artificial intelligence.
Just a few weeks ago, the site The Verge anticipated how soon Microsoft would present a major update to Office apps, including Word, with more "AI-driven" options.
The "Future of Work with AI" appointment on March 16 will see an opening speech by the CEO of Microsoft, Satya Nadella, and by Jared Spataro, head of the Microsoft 365 division. Regarding the rumors about what will be revealed, a February there was talk of the possible introduction of ChatGpt, the chatbot that today answers questions about Bing for service testers, in Outlook and Word.
While the exact functionality isn't known, The Information says Outlook may use AI to improve search results and suggest email replies.
On Word, on the other hand, the AI would not only make suggestions on individual terms but also propose the rewriting of entire sentences, showing a wider understanding of the context by Microsoft's algorithms.
The company has made headlines for the investment, of about 10 billion dollars, in OpenAi, an organization to which ChatGpt is owed which, meanwhile, has opened its platform to any developer who wants to integrate artificial intelligence into their apps and Web sites.
The competition isn't standing still: the web browser Opera has already announced the integration of the chatbot in an upcoming version while Google has unveiled Bard, a competitor to ChatGpt, without however providing indications on when and how it will be available.
