Microsoft AI event: What to expect?

We have almost an hour before the Microsoft AI event kicks off, and we still don't know what is on the way. However, rumors from the past and the current circumstances lead us to a couple of results, mainly around Microsoft 365.

A while ago, Microsoft announced that it will hold a meeting on March 16, 8 am PT but didn't give any additional information. We know the name of it, which is "The Future of Work with AI." Apart from its name, Microsoft also filled out the "about" section but didn't specify any information. "Join us for a special event with Satya Nadella and Jared Spataro to learn how AI will power a whole new way of working for every person and organization. The live stream starts at 8 AM Pacific Time on March 16," says the about section, which clearly is not very precise.

Despite having very limited information, there is a strong possibility that the upcoming event will mainly cover the new GPT-4 integrations to Microsoft 365.

Microsoft AI event, "The Future of Work with AI," is at the door, and there are some guesses on what the company could reveal.

Microsoft 365 is most likely the focus of the Microsoft AI event

First things first, hosts give us a strong clue about what's on the way. The chairman and CEO, Satya Nadella, will be joined by the vice president of modern work and business applications, Jared Spataro. Spoiler alert, Spataro is also the head of Microsoft 365.

It is not a mystery that Microsoft wants to lead the AI industry, as the company makes it obvious with its courageous steps toward the future. It has been investing heavily in OpenAI and recently revealed that Bing will use GPT-4, which was revealed a couple of days ago.

Microsoft has brought new AI capabilities to Teams and wants to bring more to other apps like Outlook and Word. As you may know, Google recently revealed its new AI features for Gmail and Docs. Similar steps are awaited for Outlook and Word by the users. For Outlook, a possible email draft generator, and a writing suggestion feature for Word is expected. Microsoft will probably integrate GPT-4 into these apps.

Apart from those two, the Microsoft 365 family includes some other highly-used apps like OneDrive, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, and OneNote.

Microsoft is not only bringing these AI solutions to 365 but also to its subsidiary companies. Recently, LinkedIn announced new AI features, helping people share ideas easily and save time writing job descriptions and profile bios.

How to watch the event?

Microsoft decided to keep it simpler and live stream the event on LinkedIn. You don't have to do anything other than regular processes, and you also don't need a press card or invitation to be able to watch the live stream. Simply go to this link and hit the play button once the time comes.

You can also click on the "attend" button to let your connections know what you are up to. There is a discussion section at the right of the page where you can share your ideas with people and see others' thoughts. Currently, there are almost 30,000 attendees,  this number might go higher as we get closer to the event.

    Are these articles AI generated?

    Now the duplicates are more obvious.

    1. boris said on March 19, 2023 at 11:48 pm

      This is below AI generated crap. It is copy of Microsoft Help website article without any relevant supporting text. Anyway you can find this information on many pages.

  2. Paul(us) said on March 20, 2023 at 1:32 am

    Yes, but why post the exact same article under a different title twice on the same day (19 march 2023), by two different writers?
    1.) Excel Keyboard Shortcuts by Trevor Monteiro.
    2.) 70+ Excel Keyboard Shortcuts for Windows by Priyanka Monteiro

    Why oh why?

    1. Clairvaux said on September 6, 2023 at 11:30 am

      Yeah. Tell me more about “Priyanka Monteiro”. I’m dying to know. Indian-Portuguese bot ?

    Probably they will announce that the taskbar will be placed at top, right or left, at your will.

    Special event by they is a special crap for us.

    If it’s Microsoft, don’t buy it.
    Better brands at better prices elsewhere.

  5. John G. said on August 20, 2023 at 4:22 am

    All new articles have zero count comments. :S

  6. Anonymous said on September 5, 2023 at 7:48 am

    WTF? So, If I add one photo to 5 albums, will it count 5x on my storage?
    It does not make any sense… on google photos, we can add photo to multiple albums, and it does not generate any additional space usage

    I have O365 until end of this year, mostly for onedrive and probably will jump into google one

    Photo storage must be kept free because customers chose gadgets just for photos and photos only.

    What a nonsense. Does it mean that albums are de facto folders with copies of our pictures?

    1. GG said on September 6, 2023 at 8:24 am

      Sounds exactly like the poor coding Microsoft is known for in non-critical areas i.e. non Windows Core/Office Core.

      I imagine a manager gave an employee the task to create the album feature with hardly any time so they just copied the folder feature with some cosmetic changes.

      And now that they discovered what poor management results in do they go back and do the album feature properly?

      Nope, just charge the customer twice.

      Sounds like a go-getter that needs to be promoted for increasing sales and managing underlings “efficiently”, said the next layer of middle management.

    When will those comments get fixed? Was every editor here replaced by AI and no one even works on this site?

    Instead of a software company, Microsoft is now a fraud company.

    For me this is proof that Microsoft has a back-door option into all accounts in their cloud.
    quote “…… as the MSA key allowed the hacker group access to virtually any cloud account at Microsoft…..”

    so this MSA key which is available to MS officers can give access to all accounts in MS cloud.This is the backdoor that MS has into the cloud accounts. Lucky I never got any relevant files of mine in their (MS) cloud.

  12. Andy Prough said on September 7, 2023 at 6:52 pm

    >”Now You: what is your theory?”

    That someone handed an employee a briefcase full of cash and the employee allowed them access to all their accounts and systems.

    Anything that requires 5-10 different coincidences to happen is highly unlikely. Occam’s razor.

  13. TelV said on September 8, 2023 at 12:04 pm

    Good reason to never login to your precious machine with a Microsoft a/c a.k.a. as the cloud.

    The GAFAM are always very careless about our software automatically sending to them telemetry and crash dumps in our backs. It’s a reminder not to send them anything when it’s possible to opt out, and not to opt in, considering what they may contain. And there is irony in this carelessness biting them back, even if in that case they show that they are much more cautious when it’s their own data that is at stake.
