Microsoft’s Copilot Embraces the Power of GPT-4o

Copilot, Microsoft’s AI assistant in Windows 11 and Bing, will begin using GPT-4o, the latest technology that’s also powering the paid tier of ChatGPT, the company said at its AI Era event in Seattle on Monday. 

The latest version of Copilot will be able to answer questions and generate text with greater precision and accuracy, while also having voice and computer vision support. For example, it can be used to open apps or edit photos. Copilot will also be visible in the Windows 11 taskbar. 

Microsoft’s latest suite of AI integrations comes as players in Big Tech are trying to plant their flag in the AI race. Last week at Google I/O, the search giant Google made a suite of Gemini — the company’s AI chatbot — announcements centered around its integrations into all things Google. This included everything from AI summarizations in Google Search to the ambitious agentive Project Astra. OpenAI, the creators of ChatGPT, also showed off a new update to its large language model called GPT-4o last week that can handle more data. It demoed a voice-operated AI assistant that conversed in uniquely human ways, with vocal quirks, sarcasm and a flirty disposition. It reminded audiences so much of the movie Her, starring Scarlett Johansson as an AI chatbot, that OpenAI suspended the voice.

The stock market has been generously rewarding companies that are making the biggest impacts in the AI race. Nvidia saw its stock sore last year, briefly joining the trillion-dollar club, as its tech powers many of the AI engines companies use. Meta, Google and Microsoft have also seen record jumps in their stock price as they continue to invest billions of dollars in AI. Apple may or may not be creating its own commercial AI tech, but recently has been rumored to be shopping between Google and OpenAI to bring their tech to the iPhone. Whichever company wins over Apple will likely ink a multi-billion dollar deal. 

Along with GPT-4o coming to Copilot, Microsoft also announced that the Surface Laptop 6 and Surface Pro will join a new line of Copilot Plus PCs. These PCs will have a new feature called Recall that’ll allow you to ask questions about what you did a few days ago. Other features include Live Captions, an image generator called Cocreator and Windows Studio Effects for picture editing.
