Like many of its competitors, Microsoft has increased its advertising around AI, especially generative AI, since the beginning of the year. Its new PCs, traditionally introduced in September during the Surface event, have highlighted AI, particularly the co-pilot “Your daily companion” Which will be deployed as part of the Windows 11 22H2 update scheduled for tomorrow.
As announced at Build 2023 last July, Microsoft Copilot will be integrated into many of the company’s applications.
Youssef Mahdi, corporate vice president and director of consumer marketing at Microsoft, says in his blog:
“It will be a simple and seamless experience, available in Windows 11, Microsoft 365, and in our web browser with Edge and Bing. It will run as an app or reveal itself when you need it with the click of a button. Over time, we will continue to add Copilot capabilities and connections to our most widely used apps to serve our vision of To have an experience that will last a lifetime.
Microsoft is offering the next update for Windows 11 as “One of our most ambitious yet”announcing more than 150 new features and AI-driven experiences for apps like Paint, Photos, and Clipchamp, which can be found in the video below.
New AI features for Bing and Edge
Microsoft has unveiled new artificial intelligence features in its Bing search engine and Edge browser.
Bing Chat will provide more personalized responses based on a user’s search history. It can help them find products online with Microsoft Shopping, and create custom images with Bing Image Creator.
The latter will integrate OpenAI’s latest DALL-E 3 model to provide better quality and resolution of the generated images. According to Microsoft:
D. The E3 offers a huge leap forward with more beautiful designs and better representations of details like fingers and eyes. It also has a better understanding of what you are asking, resulting in more accurate images.
An invisible digital watermark will be added to all AI-generated images in Bing, as well as in Paint and Microsoft Designer. This latest application, now supported by DALL-E 3, will be integrated into Microsoft Edge to allow users to create visual graphics (social media posts, invitations, digital postcards, infographics…), without having to leave their feeds or the site they are on . on me.
Updates for Bing Chat Enterprise

Microsoft 365 Copilot, announced last March, will be available to businesses on November 1 and will integrate Microsoft 365 Chat, which was unveiled the same day under the name Business Chat.
