On Thursday, March 16, Microsoft plans to unveil more of its ambitious plans Artificial intelligence chat robot ChatGPTThe power of AI permeates more aspects of our lives—specifically, how the tech company has grand plans to “reinvent productivity with artificial intelligence.”
Aside from perfectly meaningful corporate marketing jargon, this notion of “reinventing productivity” is worrisome at best, not least because we don’t yet know what it really means.Speculation is rife that Microsoft plans to integrate ChatGPT into Microsoft 365 (formerly known as Office) software suite, and the Dynamics 365 suite for enterprise use.
This comes on the heels of Microsoft pushing chatbots into pretty much everything it has.from Integrate ChatGPT into Bing After quickly adding AI support to Skype and the Windows 11 taskbar, Microsoft has been hard at work on artificial intelligence in its software.
We have speculated how ChatGPT can be used Transforming Microsoft’s consumer software suite, so it’s not a huge surprise. However, I worry about the whole prospect; Microsoft is rushing through its AI implementation plans, which will cause more problems than it solves.
AI arms race
Microsoft is clearly looking to shoehorn AI capabilities into more of its products, possibly in response to rival Salesforce’s partnership with ChatGPT creator OpenAI. Bringing Chatbots to Slack (also Snapchat launches its own AI chatbot) Such reactionary decisions are rarely wise, especially when it involves artificial intelligence.
ChatGPT has proven itself to be problematic. Whether it is customary commit cybercrime or create Fake Photo Contest Entries, AI poses some very serious risks.Many of these problems are caused by humans misusing AI software, but tools like ChatGPT have has its own failures.
We are witnessing a real-time arms race to integrate AI technologies into every aspect of our lives, and i don’t trust microsoft (or any big tech company like Google or Meta) being the herald of the chatbot renaissance. Right now, Microsoft is showing a lack of caution when it comes to ChatGPT and AI in general, especially since the field is not yet heavily regulated by major governments.
I admit that AI coming into the 365 suite is actually a less scary idea than, say, Let ChatGPT make video content. The ability to ask ChatGPT for simple things like “add some animation to my PowerPoint presentation” or “reformat this text document into a letter” is both useful and relatively non-threatening – although Microsoft Word can Simply having content written for you is a bit of a concern, especially for the academic field.
I’m not saying that ChatGPT added to these tools is going to ruin our lives, but it has issues – and I definitely don’t believe Microsoft is taking all the right precautions here.In this case, caution pays off; Google doesn’t let people get Get up close and personal with its new artificial intelligenceand Microsoft itself had to restrict Bing chatbots to a lot of weird things from artificial intelligence. Ready to use more AI tools now? Not good looking.
