Just like everything else, the professional landscape is changing at record speed. New technologies in artificial intelligence are playing a critical role in how companies are transforming the way they operate during our digital age. With innovative software for sophisticated applications from automating repetitive tasks to in-depth information analysis, AI is creating a revolution and providing exciting opportunities in an unprecedented way to improve efficiency, productivity and decision making. In addition to freeing up precious time for higher value-added activities, smart systems foster inspiration by providing advanced data checks and insightful suggestions. This is what Microsoft is proposing with its visionary digital assistant, COPILOT.

What Is Copilot?

Intelligence, productivity, creativity and connectivity is what Microsoft is promoting with its AI companion  par excellence. “Now that we’re into a new age of artificial intelligence, the way we interact with technology is changing and it’s to our benefit.” With the goal of simplifying otherwise complicated and laborious tasks, Copilot has been integrated into the Microsoft 365 applications that millions of users run every day: Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, Teams, etc. User friendly and intuitive, it was conceived and designed to allow all users from the most experienced to the least to take advantage of the power of AI on a daily basis. Like a real-time personal assistant, it works by enhancing human capabilities, automating routine work and opening the door to new methods of collaboration thereby allowing employees the opportunity to concentrate on more important jobs while gaining time and reducing careless mistakes.  

How Can Copilot Help?

At first glance, Microsoft 365 Copilot is an AI powered chatbot designed to support the user in various daily tasks such as planning and managing emails to organize meetings and research information. What makes it different is its ability to learn content and adapt in real time. It is able to recognize an employee’s professional style and habits and then propose more personalized and specific recommendations, suggest possible solutions to potential problems and help manage the imposed workload. 

In recent years, the rhythm and volume of work have only increased. In concrete terms, Copilot can be used to summarize a discussion and synthesize important Team meetings, draft routine emails on Outlook, analyze data processed on Excel, create efficient PowerPoint presentations… 

In short, AI powered innovative applications and software are transforming not only how jobs are accomplished but also the way creativity is fostered. Copilot is emerging as a powerful catalyst for change in our modern professional landscape by liberating employees from the demands of monotonous chores. AI is paving the way to greater productivity and renewed focus on more strategic activities.
