The public sector faces the pressing need to adapt and innovate. As technology continues to advance, government agencies must explore groundbreaking solutions to enhance their services.
On September 21, 2023, Microsoft launched Microsoft Copilot, an AI companion for everyday tasks. Copilot combines chat interfaces and large language models to understand natural language requests, providing context-aware assistance across Microsoft’s products, including Windows 11, Microsoft 365, Bing, and Edge.
Copilot’s capabilities aim to streamline tasks, enhance productivity, and improve user experiences while prioritizing privacy and security. The rollout began with Windows 11 on September 26, with further integration and features planned for various Microsoft applications and services. The launch also introduced new Surface devices designed to harness AI experiences, such as Windows Studio Effects and enhanced productivity tools.
In this blog, we’ll delve into what Copilot is, how Microsoft envisions its impact, and how Kiefer Consulting has been closely following AI trends and exploring the potential benefits of AI in the public sector.
