copilot and AI

WHAT are COPILOT AND JUMPSTART IN THE LOOP?

Copilot is a cloud-based artificial intelligence technology, by having code autocompleted. Users of Visual Studio Code, Visual Studio, Neovim, and JetBrains integrated development environments (IDEs) can benefit from Copilot. The tool, which was first introduced by GitHub on June 29, 2021, is now available via subscription to individual developers and performs best when used by those who code in Python, JavaScript, TypeScript, Ruby, and Go.

Copilot turns our words into the most effective productivity tool on the globe by fusing the strength of large language models with our data in the Microsoft Graph, calendar, emails, chats, documents, meetings, and the Microsoft 365 apps. Additionally, it complies with the enterprise’s current obligations to data security and privacy.

Currently, we devote far too much time to the mundane aspects of work and far too little time and effort to the work that inspires creativity and joy.

Microsoft 365 incorporates Copilot in two different ways. To release creativity, unlock productivity, and advance skills, it works with you, integrated within the Microsoft 365 apps you use every day—Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, Teams, and more. We’re also unveiling a brand-new service today called Business Chat. Business Chat enables you to perform previously unimaginable tasks by integrating with the LLM, the Microsoft 365 apps, and your data, including your calendar, emails, conversations, documents, meetings, and contacts. It will generate a status update based on the morning’s meetings, emails, and chat threads if you give it natural language suggestions like “tell my team how we updated the product strategy”. We always maintain control when using Copilot. We may choose what to keep, change, and reject. We can now use Word and Excel more analytically, PowerPoint more expressively, Outlook more productively, and Teams more collaboratively.

How to enable the setting:  In a previous post, I saw you how to enable the loop, so, login into the https://loop.microsoft.com and go to settings

Go to experiments and enable the Jumpstart workspace. The day we tried to create this content Microsoft didn’t allow new usage, so the copilot will be presented as a new article when will be released to a wider audience.

We are aware that starting from scratch might be challenging. Finding the correct phrase, knowing how to proceed with a challenge, and putting an idea down on paper can be tedious or a fantastic source of inspiration.

We believe Copilot can help us find our inspiration. Copilot will develop content based on our requests using AI-powered suggestions. We and our coworkers will be able to work together in real time on the content it produces because it is integrated into Loop.

Now let’s create a Workspace

Add some keywords related to the workspace and create it

When we have a project in mind, we just want to get started. It’s often difficult, however, because the “stuff” that makes up a project is dispersed. We must switch between applications, connect existing resources, and go through the manual process of gathering all project-related collateral. While also breaking down organizational silos.

Jumpstart assists us in laying the groundwork. It’s intended to assist you in quickly selecting our starting materials from a list of AI-powered suggestions. Gather critical content from SharePoint or OneDrive for Business into your workspace without leaving the Loop context.

We begin to surface an initial set of files based on the workspace name. We’ll cast a wider net and show more suggestions if you give Loop more context by providing a set of keywords. Then, simply navigate through the result tabs, select the files you want to import, and click Create. They will appear in the Loop workspace’s left navigation pane shortly after it is created.

We hope that this experience will inspire all of us to think beyond a simple file search. We can use Jumpstart to bring materials into the workspace that are directly or tangentially related.

Start by using the Create, Brainstorm, Blueprint, and Describe buttons to cycle through a few examples. With Copilot, you can go into a number of different areas, therefore we also encourage you to create your own requests from scratch. Investigate and remove obstacles to collaboration using AI.

We believe you will enjoy working with Copilot even after it generates initial writing, as did the participants in our initial feedback sessions. By requesting Copilot to alter the tone, format, content, and more, you and your team will be able to directly edit the content and continue to improve the final product. You can rewind and explore with no concern for losing any effort thanks to the past. You have control using Copilot.
