The initial day of Microsoft's annual Build 2023 event centered on the exploration of AI's possibilities. During his keynote speech, Satya Nadella, the CEO of Microsoft, delved into the forthcoming advancements in AI and introduced several technologies empowered by AI. One of the notable unveilings was the Copilot functionality integrated into Windows 11, enhancing user experience. Additionally, Microsoft launched Azure AI Studio, an innovative platform enabling organizations to create their personalized AI chatbots.

Azure AI Studio provides organizations and developers with a valuable tool to leverage the Azure OpenAI Service. This integration enables them to harness the power of OpenAI chatbots alongside their proprietary data, facilitating the creation of personalized chat assistants or applications. By combining OpenAI's chatbot capabilities with their own data, users can unlock a new level of functionality and enhance the effectiveness of their chat-based solutions or apps.

"We’re excited to share our new Azure AI Studio. With just a few clicks, developers can now ground powerful conversational AI models, such as OpenAI’s ChatGPT and GPT-4, on their own data. With Azure OpenAI Service on your data, coming to public preview, and Azure Cognitive Search, employees, customers, and partners can discover information buried in the volumes of data, text, and images using natural language-based app interfaces," Microsoft said in a blog post.

According to the company, over 4,500 businesses, including Coursera, Grammarly, Volvo, and IKEA, have experienced the advantages of utilizing the Azure OpenAI Service.

Microsft Fabric

In addition to the aforementioned announcements, Microsoft also introduced its latest analytics platform called Fabric. This innovative platform will be built upon Microsoft's OneLake data lake infrastructure. Notably, Fabric has the capability to import data from external sources such as Google Cloud Platform and Amazon's Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3), broadening its data integration capabilities.

Fabric represents the convergence of various technologies, including Azure Data Factory, Azure Synapse Analytics, and Power BI. By integrating these distinct components, Microsoft aims to provide a comprehensive and unified analytics solution to users.

Windows Copilot

Microsoft unveiled Windows Copilot, an AI-powered virtual assistant. Copilot extends its functionality beyond Windows 11 and can be found in other Microsoft products such as the Edge web browser and the Office suite of applications.

With Copilot, users can conveniently perform actions like activating the night light mode or changing the desktop background by accessing a shortcut on the taskbar. This action triggers a sidebar where users can interact with the virtual assistant and communicate their commands or queries.

Earlier this month, we reported on Microsoft's major technological advancement in bolstering its AI-powered tool, Copilot, with new features. Now, the company has launched the Copilot Early Access Program, offering exclusive usage rights to select businesses before its public release. With integration into popular Microsoft 365 apps like Word, Excel, and Teams, Copilot has the potential to revolutionize daily work tasks. The program, available to 600 enterprise customers by invitation only, showcases the immense potential Copilot holds for enhancing productivity. Microsoft's ongoing efforts to expand Copilot's capabilities and accessibility demonstrate their commitment to harnessing the power of AI to streamline work processes.

    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 ?

  3. John G. said on August 18, 2023 at 4:36 pm

    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.

  4. yanta said on August 18, 2023 at 11:59 pm

    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

  7. St Albans Digital Printing Inc said on September 5, 2023 at 11:53 am

    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.

  11. ard said on September 7, 2023 at 4:59 pm

    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.
