Microsoft is detailing several new features coming soon to its Copilot service, including the latest models of OpenAI. Copilot will soon get support for GPT-4 Turbo along with updated DALL-E 3 models, a new code interpreter feature, and deep search functionality inside Bing.
Copilot will soon be able to respond using OpenAI’s latest GPT-4 Turbo model, which essentially means it will “see” more data for a 128K context window. This larger context window will allow the copilot to better understand and respond to questions better. “This model is currently being tested with select users and will be more broadly integrated into Copilot in the coming weeks,” explains Youssef Medhi, Microsoft’s EVP and consumer chief marketing officer.
While you’re waiting for the GPT-4 Turbo model to appear in Copilot, Microsoft is now using an improved DALL-E 3 model in Bing Image Creator and Copilot. “You can now use Copilot with the updated DALL-E 3 model to create images that are higher quality and more accurate to the prompt,” says Medhi.
Microsoft Edge, which includes a CoPilot sidebar, is also gaining the ability to write text within websites’ text inputs to rewrite sentences inline. You can now also use Copilot in Microsoft Edge to summarize videos you’re watching on YouTube.
Coders and developers may be interested in the new code interpreter feature coming to Copilot soon. This new feature will allow Copilot users to get more accurate calculations, data analysis or even code from the AI chatbot. Microsoft explains, “CoPilot will write code to answer your complex, natural-language requests, run that code in a sandboxed environment, and use the results to deliver high-quality responses to you.” “You can also upload and download files from Copilot, so you can work with your data and code as well as Bing search results.”
On the Bing side, Microsoft is adding “Deep Search” to its results. “Deep Search harnesses the power of GPT-4 to deliver optimized search results for complex topics,” says Medhi. “Activating Deep Search expands the search query into more detailed details to deliver more relevant results.”
