The Microsoft Build 2023 conference that is being held these days has begun with a display of novelties in which artificial intelligence is the absolute protagonist. The Redmond company, which has invested a lot of time (and money) in this field, has introduced it into various business fields (reinforcing Azure), but there has also been room for improvements that affect end users.
The most notable is the arrival of Windows Copilot para Windows 11which Microsoft qualifies as the first PC platform designed to centralize artificial intelligence support.
This assistant will be in charge of providing personalized responses and helping users to perform certain actions in Windows 11. For example, change a certain system parameter, play a list of songs or open the appropriate application.
The operation of Windows Copilot for Windows 11 is based on Bing Chat, and with it, it takes advantage of the knowledge collected from your training and from the contents of the web. To all this is added the context that surrounds the requests of the users to obtain more relevant answers.
She is a nurse can be attached to a side panel in such a way that it is always available in a margin of the screen and maintains the persistence being close to any of the user agents. Windows Copilot will begin to be available in preview for Windows 11 during the month of June.
There will be other improvements in the field of artificial enhancement: Windows 11 will have an option to enjoy subtitles generated in real time (Live Captions) thanks to language recognition and speech-to-text transcription. This option is now supported in 10 more languages, bringing the total to 21.
ChatGPT plugins coming to Bing Chat
The Redmond company also talked about Microsoft 365 Copilot, which is currently in the private beta phase. From now on it will be natively integrated into Microsoft Edge, which will allow more features to be added to the browser and will allow you to answer questions or complete tasks.
Microsoft has also taken the opportunity to announce that it will adopt the same open plugin standard that OpenAI introduced for ChatGPT. Thus, it will be possible to enjoy interoperability between ChatGPT and Microsoft’s co-pilot offer. The plugins that already raised their particular revolution within the world of ChatGPT are now extended to the AI ecosystem created by Microsoft.
Users will therefore be able to start a platform to create plugins that work for both end-user and professional services. These include ChatGPT, Bing, Dynamics 365 Copilot (in preview), and Microsoft 365 Copilot (in preview).
In fact, at Microsoft they ensure that if users develop their own AI application using the Azure OpenAI Service, it will be interoperable by default with these same standard plugins.
Bing Chat with ChatGPT will be one of the first to benefit for the end user: in addition to plugins that already worked in ChatGPT Plus como OpenTable o Wolfram Alphait will be possible to have others such as those of Instacart, Kayak, Klarna, Redfin and Zillow.
The AI will sign its own images
In line with efforts we’re beginning to see in the industry, Microsoft Designer and Bing Image now add new media provenance features.
Thus, Bing Image Creator will allow consumers check if an image or video was generated by AI. This system uses cryptographic methods to mark and sign AI-generated content with metadata about its origin.
Microsoft indicated in the inaugural talk of Build 2023 how it has been one of the first companies involved in developing methods of authentication of image provenance, and also co-founded Project Origin and the Coalition for Content Provenance and Authenticity (C2PA).
With the Microsoft system, the images created by its generative AI tools will be signed and verified in accordance with the C2PA standard. The main image and video formats will be supported for Microsoft Designer and Bing Image Creator, and the system will begin rolling out in the coming months.
