There’s only a day left until Microsoft Build, the company’s annual conference event giving developers, students, engineers, and technology professionals an opportunity to learn more about its suite of services.
Build officially kicks off on May 23 and will run until May 25 on a hybrid set-up, with the first two days available digitally for streaming and all three days taking place in-person in Seattle.
Based on Microsoft’s recent developments, one could speculate AI to be the star of this year’s event.
Earlier this month, the tech giant announced major updates to its GPT-4 powered Bing chat, scrapping the waitlist, integrating third-party plugins, adding a “Bing Image Creator,” a chat history, sharing and exporting conversations, and more.
The company is also giving its web browser Edge an AI-powered makeover. Apart from a sleeker and more streamlined interface, Microsoft is adding visual search, better summarizing power, and Edge Actions into the browser, all in the coming weeks.
Copilot, Microsoft’s new set of AI-powered features coming to its Microsoft 365 apps, is also expected to be a special talking point in the upcoming Build.
Last March, the company went in-depth on how it plans to change its productivity apps through Copilot. In Microsoft Word for example, Copilot can help users create a “first draft to edit and iterate on” that can help them save time on writing.
While Microsoft unveiled Copilot last March, no date has been given as to when new features will be available, giving strong speculation that the company will finally drop more details about it during Build.
