A demonstration takes place where an invitation and presentation for a high school graduation party are created with Copilot's assistance, leveraging intelligent automation to generate drafts and locate necessary information, incorporate personal touches, and format projects while empowering the user's creativity. This approach reinforces the message that users retain control even as the AI improves the creative process.
  • 00:15:00 In this section, we see how Copilot by Microsoft can unleash creativity and efficiency at work. It can quickly create documents for customer proposals using notes from OneNote and internal documents. It can also turn Word documents into PowerPoint presentations, create speaker notes, and animate slides. Moreover, Copilot has rich capabilities in Excel, enabling users to analyze data, visualize trends, and create simple models. It can also triage and summarize emails, optimizing productivity for busy workers. Copilot saves time while upleveling users' skills by showing them how to break down problems step-by-step.
  • 00:20:00 In this section, the creators of Copilot explain how it works, which is through a system called The Copilot System that utilizes three foundational technologies: Microsoft 365 apps, Microsoft Graph, and a large language model. Copilot understands prompts and improves them through grounding, which obtains user data from the graph and modifies the prompt to be relevant and actionable. Then the LLM responds and Copilot post-processes it. Copilot is capable of transforming work by improving collaboration and automating tasks for personal productivity and in all business processes. It can summarize Teams chats, provide detailed responses, and even notify users of top points if they can't attend a meeting.
