Microsoft wants to integrate OpenAI’s AI technology to improve Office applications. Artificial intelligence is now gaining popularity in the creative field, with ordinary people using tools like Stable Diffusion to create artwork by simply typing in simple text AI. Microsoft is considering using OpenAI technology to help users with tasks such as work reports, annual summaries, and slideshow creation.
Microsoft wants to integrate the AI created by OpenAI into Word, Outlook, Powerpoint and other applications, according to sources with direct knowledge of Microsoft’s plans.
For users, this will allow them to use large amounts of automatically generated text to enrich documents based on prompts. This could also include AI-generated emails, written for users based on what they want to communicate with the recipient.
Microsoft invested more than $1 billion in the OpenAI project back in 2019, only to have Microsoft never release any more information about it.
According to current and former Microsoft employees, Microsoft 365’s Office productivity suite will integrate AI toolsets in the future, and those efforts include improved search results in Outlook emails, auto-response emails, suggestions for improving writing style, and other chatbot-style programs.
