Microsoft on Thursday unveiled Copilot for Microsoft Viva, an employee-experience platform based on Microsoft 365 that will go live in February 2021, one month after introducing Copilot for Microsoft 365.
Microsoft 365 Copilot is a generative AI system built on GPT-4, a sizable language model developed by OpenAI, the AI lab behind the ChatGPT chatbot.
The Redmond business unveiled a Copilot in March to automate a range of activities across several Microsoft office programmes, such as summing important points of discussion in a Teams chat or including pertinent information in a PowerPoint presentation based on user-created documents.
In Viva Copilot, which is based on the Microsoft 365 Copilot System, data from the Viva apps Goals, Engage, Learning, Topics, and Answers are combined with the strength of big language models. According to Corporate Vice President for Microsoft 365, Kirk Koenigsbauer, it will “assist users in leveraging next-generation AI to boost productivity and drive enhanced business outcomes.”
“We believe this next generation of AI will enable a new wave of productivity growth,” Satya Nadella, Microsoft’s CEO, said in a live-streamed presentation.
By combining the tools and applications businesses need for communication and feedback, analytics, objectives, and learning, Microsoft Viva equips organizations with next-generation AI and insights, enabling them to continuously enhance employee engagement and business performance.
