This week Microsoft announced M365 Copilot. Currently being tested by select commercial customers, Copilot is an AI-powered coding assistant developed by OpenAI in collaboration with Microsoft. Copilot is embedded in the Microsoft 365 apps you use every day—Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, Teams, and combines the power of large language models (LLMs) with your data in the Microsoft Graph—your calendar, emails, chats, documents, meetings, and more.
Below are just a few examples of how Copilot can turn your words into a powerful productivity tool.
Copilot in Word writes, edits, summarizes, and creates right alongside you. With a brief prompt, Copilot in Word will create a first draft for you, bringing in information from across your organization as needed.
Copilot in Excel works alongside you to help analyse and explore your data. Ask Copilot questions about your data set in natural language, not just formulas. It will reveal correlations, propose what-if scenarios, and suggest new formulas based on your questions
Copilot in PowerPoint helps you turn your ideas into presentations. Copilot can transform existing written documents into decks complete with speaker notes and sources or start a new presentation from a simple prompt or outline.
Copilot in Outlook works through your inbox and messages so that you can spend less time on email triage. Copilot will summarize lengthy, convoluted email threads with multiple people to understand not only what has been said, but the different viewpoints of each person and the open questions that have yet to be answered.
