Ja shows various ways to use CoPilot. It’s a typical AI demo we’ve seen many times before. CoPilot scans Java’s dialog and creates a summary. This helps him create a document to present to his team.

EVP of Experiences Rajesh Jha now takes the stage. He and other presenters will discuss different aspects of AI Copilot.

Jha talks about how AI is being incorporated into Microsoft 365 applications. Many companies also use Copilot. More than 150 copilots have been added since early 2024. There is also a separate Copilot app for daily users.

More Microsoft Copilot updates. Nadella talks about how the company’s AI subsidiary has helped the company since its inception. Microsoft CoPilot Connectors allow companies to connect many different applications.

The co-pilot team has been announced. It works with Teams and other Microsoft programs. It can facilitate meetings, take notes, write chats, gather information, solve problems and act as a project manager.

Developers can build a copilot from the ground up or from a series of templates. It will help devs and companies to develop Copilot agent for their specific business.

Real-time intelligence in Microsoft Fabric. There’s a lot to sort out here, but suffice it to say that this is another AI tool that can help ease the workload of developers and organizations alike. Admittedly, this isn’t something regular people should worry about.

A video on how AI can help teachers make classes more engaging with Khan Academy. It will help provide a personal tutor to students and a personal assistant to teachers. This is possible via the Fi platform. And because it’s a small AI platform, it’s less expensive — which should be affordable for schools.

OpenAI developed ChatGPT-40 and Microsoft is opening it up to devs. It also turns into an AI agent. Very interesting!

Microsoft is adding more models to Phi-3 with more expanded parameters. It can work via the cloud or locally on a computer.

Next up is a demo of a person asking the AI ​​for the best products to use for camping. It’s standard fare for AI, but apparently, instead of typing questions, you can ask questions with your voice. The presentation showed the user changing his language and the AI ​​keeping up, which is pretty cool.

The AI’s demo player will provide pointers on how to play Minecraft. Instead of watching a YouTube video, AI will guide you. I’m not sure how I feel about this as a long time gamer on GameFAQs. But I guess it could be a modern version of the old game guides!

Nadella talks about Azure AI. Apparently, more than 50,000 companies are using this program. ChatGPT-4o is trained on Azure, which is very interesting. Microsoft really has its hands in a lot of AI bags!

Azure is available in 60+ regions. The company has extended it to more areas than ever before with a commitment to provide cloud service consistency.

Some of these may be over the heads of ordinary people. But suffice it to say, if developers create apps that help make your life easier, we all win.

This new feature will provide real-time video translations for YouTube, Linkedin and more – any platform with on-site video. Translations include going from English to 44 languages. Yes, that includes both pre-recorded and live videos.

Let’s start by looking back. It’s been a busy day since Microsoft made tons of hardware and software announcements.

Surface Pro 11: The Pro 10 seems to be aimed exclusively at business people, and we’re getting good stuff on the Surface Pro 11. This is the first Surface to give you an OLED display, and you’re either the Snapdragon X Plus or the X Elite. Pricing starts at $999.

Surface Laptop 7: With that said, the Surface Laptop 7 is a fairly simple upgrade hardware-wise. You still get the same display options as the Laptop 6 and the same aluminum shell. The main difference is the choice of Snapdragon.

CoPilot+ PCs: Microsoft has launched a new line of CoPilot+ PCs – the next generation of AI PCs – in just two of these. Let’s see more about what Asus, Acer, Dell, HP and Lenovo have to offer.
