Reportedly, Microsoft is in talks to provide ChatGPT to AI developer OpenAI Office as part of efforts to modernize ul Office software set.
News, courtesy information (opens in a new tab) via two insiders at Microsoft, follows later TechRadar Pro Lately reported that the company wants to introduce ChatGPT OpenAI to its Bing search engine for web browsers.
Plans to bring ChatGPT text generation capabilities to “Word, PowerPoint, Outlook and other applications” follow another failed attempt to implement AI tools that use OpenAI machine learning language models in Office to generate emails and documents.
Microsoft, ChatGPT and the future
According to insiders, Microsoft wants to use ChatGPT to “deliver more useful search results when Outlook email customers search their inboxes for information.”
“For example, GPT has the ability to determine what emails a customer might be looking for, even if they don’t type in the exact keywords that are in the relevant emails.”
Going forward, Microsoft is expected to want ChatGPT to write email replies, rewrite documents for clarity, and create entire documents as prompted, similar to what ChatGPT currently does.
ChatGPT created a culture of fear as it rose to prominence as the world speculates what it might be capable of despite limited evidence that it is almost ready.
Google executives are concerned about this inaccuracyand teachers fear this will happen break an already broken systembut even Sam Altman, CEO of OpenAI, says so ChatGPT is unreliable (opens in a new tab)and at most a proof of concept at this stage.
It is quite possible that Microsoft may have big plans for ChatGPT and other products based on OpenAI’s GPT language model, but so far there is no firm estimate of when they might become a reality.
There’s a reason why ChatGPT is currently labeled as “free research preview” and dotted with warnings that it “may occasionally generate incorrect information”, “harmful instructions or biased content”. He is not there yet.
And until that happens, instead of chasing insiders and how companies may or may not take advantage of the emerging technology, maybe we’d all benefit from doing something else in our lives until ChatGPT gets to a point where it can impress us , but it can also be easily applied to various aspects of our lives.
