According to reports, Microsoft is developing plans to integrate its Microsoft 365 office software products with its Prometheus model, which OpenAI’s GPT large language model serves as a kind of foundation for.
The Verge (opens in new tab) has received information from the unnamed source indicating that Prometheus may soon be available in Microsoft Word, Microsoft PowerPoint, and Microsoft Outlook.
This comes after the firm recently unveiled its redesigned Bing search engine, which some feel was unintentionally launched earlier than expected to beat Google’s Bard.
Microsoft Artificial Intelligence Tools
The Microsoft Outlook email service’s artificial intelligence model can handle more conversational cues and potentially make search more usable. The company’s mail app has long faced criticism for performing poorly in the search department, especially when compared to competitors like Gmail.
The advantages for Microsoft Word users might include some kind of writing support, such as better grammar and spelling checkers or more sophisticated tools to help create the proper tone. As a result, companies like Grammarly might need to accelerate their development.
Another artificial intelligence intended for Excel has already been proposed by certain Microsoft researchers from other parts of the suite. Despite not using the GPT model, the Excel-specific proprietary technology may aid less technically inclined users in producing better formulas.
Microsoft may seem to be releasing artificial intelligence versions in a hurried manner, but it has had more success than Google, which recently saw its market value decline significantly as a result of a Bard promo video that contained factually false material. Microsoft may have the resources it needs to become the preferred environment for both corporations and individuals again thanks to its relative success and speed.
