📢 TOP TECH NEWS
Announcement of hot AI tools
Artificial intelligence continues to be a hot topic in the tech world, with big players like Microsoft and Google at the forefront of new developments. Last week, both companies announced exciting new AI-assisted software.
Google introduced their latest AI powered features to Google Workspace, taking the process of writing to another level, while developers and business can try new APIs and products that make it easy, safe and scalable to start building with Google’s best AI models through Google Cloud and a new prototyping environment called MakerSuite.
Microsoft announced Copilot for work which is an AI powered processing engine that is integrated into Microsoft 365. It works alongside you to unleash creativity, unlock productivity and uplevel skills. Microsoft also announced Business Chat which works across LLM, Microsoft 365 apps, and your data (calendar, emails, chats, documents, meetings and contacts). It will be able to do things you’ve never been able to do before such as taking commands and carry out actions.
We are moving towards a new evolution of how we interact with computing which fundamentally will change the way we work. Are you excited or are you worried? ;)
