JJohn October 31, 2023 6:34 PM

Microsoft has started to roll out a significant update to its Windows 11 operating system, introducing a chatbot named Copilot. This AI assistant bears a resemblance to OpenAI's ChatGPT and enhances the user experience with a host of new features.

Introducing Copilot: Windows 11's new chatbot

Microsoft is introducing the latest major update to the Windows 11 operating system. The highlight of this update is the introduction of a new chatbot, Copilot, designed to enhance user interaction with the system. Copilot, with its generative AI capabilities, exhibits similarities to OpenAI's well-known ChatGPT in its functionality.

Behind Copilot's advanced AI capabilities

Copilot is much more than a simple chatbot. It's built on generative AI models capable of creating human-like content based on minimal human input. Trained on vast datasets by OpenAI, which Microsoft backs, Copilot can draft emails, answer queries, and perform automatic actions within the Windows environment. It can also supplement its knowledge base by sourcing information from websites.

Earlier this year, Microsoft integrated a chatbot into its Bing search engine, a variation of which is now set to enhance the latest iteration of Windows 11 - the most popular PC operating system globally. In addition, Microsoft plans to launch the Microsoft 365 Copilot, an AI-based enhancement for professionals using its suite of productivity apps.

Copilot's significance in the Windows 11 release

Copilot arguably represents the most significant aspect of this year's Windows 11 release. Some users have already had a taste of Copilot through a 'continuous innovation' release that Microsoft launched in September. This method allows Microsoft to introduce new features multiple times a year, deviating from the conventional annual release schedule.

If you're interested in upgrading your Windows 11 PC to version 23H2, you can do so by going to the 'Settings' app, navigating to the 'Windows Update' section, and clicking on the 'Check for updates' button. Microsoft has detailed information about this update for both education and commercial users in a separate blog post.
