AI is set to become an integral feature of Microsoft’s Office 365 suite, as the tech giant begins to embed the technology into its Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook and Teams products. The changes are designed to make the apps more helpful by using AI technology to suggest improvements to users’ work. Among the planned features are a PowerPoint tool that checks whether a particular document has used standard corporate styles and a new Excel chart that is designed by machine-learning algorithms to best display a given data set. Word users will be able to use machine intelligence to suggest improved vocabulary or phrasing, according to a blog post by Microsoft’s Office team. Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella unveiled the changes during the Ignite conference, which took place in Orlando, Florida, last week. “You should expect Office 365 to continue to be infused with intelligence, AI and insights to help you do your best work,” said Nadella. The updates will be implemented gradually over the coming months, and some users will be able to test them early via a preview programme that launches later this year.
