In this article, we will introduce the most important events and technologies presented at the Microsoft Build 2023 event, which is currently underway.
Microsoft’s Build developer event, which started yesterday, is mostly about integrating the latest artificial intelligence technologies with the company’s tools. This exhibition, which is held in both virtual and face-to-face formats, is specifically focused on artificial intelligence, Bing Chat, new tools for Windows developers, GitHub and the Windows terminal.
During this event, Microsoft has unveiled its many developments in the field of cloud services, such as the integration of artificial intelligence with Azure, as well as a new analytics system called “Fabric”. In the following, we will review the most important tools of this company that were introduced during the Microsoft Build 2023 event.
Important unveilings of the Microsoft Build 2023 event
Artificial intelligence plugins
Microsoft stated during the Build 2023 event that it uses the same plugin standard as its OpenAI partners. This allows developers to create plugins that integrate with Dynamics, Bing Chat, ChatGPT, Microsoft 365 Copilot services.
The tech giant also announced the addition of new plugins to support Bing Chat. Announced plugins include Kayak, Instacart, Klarna, Zillow, and Redfin. Frank ShawAs part of the Microsoft 365 Copilot project, more than 50 plugins will be announced at the build event, including Thomas, Adobe, Atlassian, Reuters and Mural, Microsoft’s head of communications told the press.
Copilot is coming to the Edge browser in Windows 11
Microsoft also plans to add some Copilot features that are currently in preview to Microsoft 365 to the Edge browser. This service is now used to respond to Microsoft 365 application requests such as Excel, Outlook, Teams, Word and PowerPoint. By integrating Copilot and Edge, users can use artificial intelligence to interact with their web browser.
Windows 11 will also use BingChat along with native and third-party plugins. Windows Copilot lets people change settings, open apps, or take other actions using artificial intelligence while integrating with Bing Chat to answer questions over the web.
Media source – Microsoft’s major unveiling at the Build 2023 event
During the Google I/O event, the company introduced features through which AI-generated images and videos can be secretly tagged and identified. Now, at the Build 2023 conference, Microsoft has unveiled the “Media Provenance” capabilities that follow the same rule and will be added to the Bing Image Creator and Microsoft Designer services.
Microsoft’s technology will use cryptographic techniques to mark and generate a specific signature for AI-generated content with metadata about its origin. The company also added that the token will comply with standards set by the Coalition for Content Provenance and Authenticity (C2PA), of which Microsoft is a co-founder. The company also stated that the technology will start working with support for native images and video formats.
The Microsoft Store is getting an AI hub
Microsoft Store will also be integrated with artificial intelligence. The app will soon be equipped with a dedicated section for AI-based apps and experiences. Developers can also submit their AI-focused apps for the show.
In addition, the integration of artificial intelligence with the Microsoft Store will enable the monitoring and scanning of comments in this store. Developers can also populate their listings with AI-generated keyword suggestions to improve search engine optimization.
In addition to its AI tools, Microsoft integrated Windows as a tool for developers with a new feature called “Dev Home”. Available in preview, the feature allows users to set up a learning machine, connect to GitHub, and generate dashboards and other extension apps. It is also possible to use GitHub widgets to track CPU and GPU performance.
In addition, Microsoft is going to add WinGet configuration to the Windows Package Manager to protect the installation process and reduce the installation time from days to hours. The WinGet configuration file ensures that you get the correct version of the software packages.
Also, a new storage volume called Dev Drive has been defined, which, according to Microsoft, is designed based on Resilient File System (ReFS) and offers a 30% improvement in build time. Microsoft described the feature as saying that the new performance mode increases protection for developers’ workloads and offers a solution that balances security and performance.
But along with the above feature, developer tools will also receive artificial intelligence technology. For example, Windows Terminal supports GitHub Copilot X and will be able to use the experimental chat experience to use the language inline as well as in chat to learn more about errors, receive important tricks, and perform actions throughout the terminal. Microsoft also announced plans to add a GitHub Copilot-style AI to other developer tools such as WinDBG.
Windows 11 support for Bluetooth Low Energy
During the Build 2023 event, Microsoft announced the addition of Bluetooth Low Energy LE to Windows 11. This feature allows users to wirelessly connect to devices with minimal battery consumption. The company announced in its statement that it has worked with Samsung and Intel to launch the feature.
Launched last year by the Bluetooth Task Force, Bluetooth LE uses the LC3 audio codec, which provides support for multi-streaming, or the ability to transmit audio to multiple devices simultaneously. This feature also offers great improvements for hearing aid use, allowing for much less energy to be used throughout the day.
Other technologies introduced at the Microsoft Build 2023 event
The widgets panel in Windows 11 is also getting a minor upgrade. Accordingly, the default view will have a larger layout with a dedicated place for pinned apps and personalized feeds that Windows creates.
Among the other minor updates are new privacy settings for the user’s presence tracking feature so that the screen will automatically lock when you walk away from the device and unlock the device again when you approach. With this feature, you can check which apps have access to presence tracking sensor information and simply enable or disable certain features.
Microsoft also announced the addition of rar format support by default to Windows 11. Finally, a new VPN icon will also be defined, which will appear on the taskbar after connecting to this network. This feature allows you to easily find out about the VPN connection.
