The service will soon offer automatically generated meeting notes using GPT-3.5.
Following the news that Microsoft is making a multi-billion dollar investment in OpenAI, it is integrating the company’s technology into more of its products and services. Microsoft announced that Teams Premium is now widely available. The service includes major language models powered by OpenAI’s GPT-3.5, as well as other technologies aimed at making meetings “smarter, more personalized and secure,” Microsoft says. This Engadget wrote on the subject.
With more than 400 new features and enhancements added to Microsoft Teams last year and many more to come in 2023, all Teams users can count on continued innovation to deepen connections and foster collaboration. Some customers are looking for Teams to do more – to offer more advanced meeting capabilities to boost productivity and help consolidate their software investments to reduce costs. Today, many organizations not only pay for meeting solutions, but also purchase expensive add-on products for webinars, virtual meetings, meeting intelligence, and more.
With intelligent summarization, time spent reviewing meeting recordings can now be saved. The AI-generated parts divide the meeting into sections, so it is easy to select a specific piece of content. Meeting recordings are stored in PowerPoint Live. Intelligent summarization will automatically generate meeting chapters and based on the meeting transcript.
Soon, these custom meeting highlights will expand to include speaker timeline markers that will show who spoke during the meeting, when they spoke, and allow you to jump to that point. Speaker timeline markers are intelligently organized by who the user talks to most often, so it will never again be possible to miss a call coming from your colleagues.
Earlier, the company introduced the Azure OpenAI service for developers, as well as a tool that helps beginners create their own apps, and a graphic design app that is powered by OpenAI technology. Microsoft is rumored to be embedding ChatGPT, OpenAI’s astoundingly popular chatbot, into Bing (Google is also reportedly working on an AI-powered search chatbot).
