OUR YEAR WITH COPILOT: WHAT MICROSOFT HAS LEARNED ABOUT IA AT WORK

Microsoft has spent the last year integrating its artificial intelligence tool, Copilot, into Microsoft 365 applications. This experiment has taught us a lot about how AI can change the way we work and collaborate.

In the following article we break down all the details of how Copilot and AI in the workplace have improved this year.

IMPROVING PRODUCTIVITY AND CREATIVITY

Copilot has proven to be a crucial ally for workers, helping us to manage emails, create content, organise data and so on.

The tool has been able to automate repetitive and time-consuming tasks. As a result, it has reduced the workload and allowed employees to spend more time on activities that require critical thinking and creativity.

How can you do it too?

  • Employ professionals at all levels.
  • Find the connectors
  • Recognise and incentivise
  • Don’t reinvent the wheel
  • But also, use what works best for you.
  • Start with small, short-term goals

ETHICS AND TRANSPARENCY IN THE USE OF IA

One of the most notable aspects of Copilot’s use has been Microsoft’s emphasis on ethics and transparency.

The company has worked to ensure that AI is used responsibly. Along with clear policies on how data is collected and used.

In addition, Microsoft has made significant efforts to educate its users about how AI works and how it can influence their daily decisions and tasks.

DEVELOPMENT OF TECHNOLOGICAL SKILLS

The introduction of Copilot has also highlighted the need to develop technology skills among employees:

  • Microsoft has recognised that, to take full advantage of AI capabilities, workers must be equipped with the skills needed to interact and work with these technologies.
  • This has led the company to invest in training and professional development programmes. The goal is to help employees adapt and thrive in an increasingly technology-driven work environment.

IMPACT ON COLLABORATION AND COMMUNICATION

Copilot has facilitated more efficient collaboration within teams, enabling better communication and coordination.

AI has been able to provide recommendations and solutions in real time. This has improved decision-making and project execution.

It has also enabled teams to work in a more synchronised way. It has also removed barriers and fostered a more cohesive and productive work environment.

CONCLUSIONS

The integration of AI into Microsoft 365 applications has shown the enormous potential of this technology to improve productivity, creativity and collaboration in the workplace.

As AI continues to evolve, it is crucial that businesses continue to prioritise ethics, transparency and skills development. This will maximise the benefits and eliminate the risks associated with its use.
