Microsoft has called a special event for the press on February 7, starting at 10 AM at its headquarters in Redmond, Washington. Despite keeping the details of the event under wraps, indications suggest that the focus of the event will be on Artificial Intelligence (AI). Microsoft has recently revealed its plans to integrate AI into multiple products in the coming months and years, including a $10 billion partnership with OpenAI, the developers of ChatGPT.
The company has already integrated AI into Microsoft Teams Premium, where the technology is used for summarizing virtual meetings in writing, generating highlights, and more. The appearance of a new version of Microsoft Bing with ChatGPT integration for some users, before it was deactivated, hints that the company is ready to launch a new way of searching the web. This is expected to be among the announcements made at the event on February 7.
It is yet to be seen what other AI-powered products Microsoft has in store. Google has recently released its ChatGPT rival, Bard, which is available for a limited number of select testers. As the competition in AI heats up, it seems that Microsoft wants to be at the forefront of the race.
