Three use cases for the AI-powered writing assistant 

Introduction 

Microsoft Copilot is a new tool that helps you write code, documents, emails, and more with the help of artificial intelligence. It can generate suggestions, summaries, and templates based on your context and goals. In this blog post, we will explore three use cases for Microsoft Copilot that can save you time and improve your writing quality.

One of the reasons why Microsoft Copilot is so powerful and versatile is that it leverages large language models, which are neural networks that can process and generate natural language. Large language models are trained on massive amounts of text data from various sources, such as books, websites, news articles, and social media posts. They learn to recognize patterns and relationships among words, sentences, and paragraphs, and use this knowledge to produce relevant and coherent text for different tasks and domains. For this reason, Copilot is most effective when its input consists solely of text-based content (rather than images, for example). Here are three common work tasks for which Copilot’s language processing and generation capabilities are particularly well-suited. 

Use Case 1: Summarize meeting transcriptions and extract action items

If you have ever attended a long and complex meeting, you know how hard it can be to keep track of everything that was said and agreed upon. You might have to spend hours reviewing the transcription or recording to summarize a list of action items. With Microsoft Copilot, you can do this in minutes. Just paste the meeting transcription into Copilot and ask it to summarize the main points and extract the action items. Copilot will generate a concise and clear summary that highlights the key takeaways, decisions, and next steps.

You can then edit, refine, and share the summary with your team or stakeholders. Use consistent language during the meeting to maximize the accuracy of Copilot’s output. For example, make sure at least one meeting participant says the phrase “action item” whenever a task that requires follow-up is mentioned; this will help Copilot to identify important meeting details. 

Use Case 2: Summarize multiple emails and draft a response 

Email is one of the most common and essential forms of communication in the modern workplace. However, dealing with a large volume of emails can also be overwhelming and time-consuming. Especially when they are long, complex, or urgent. With Microsoft Copilot, you can simplify your email workflow and write better responses. Select the emails you want to summarize and ask Copilot to summarize them and draft a response. Copilot will generate a summary that captures the main points, questions, and requests from the emails. It will also generate a response that addresses the issues, provides answers, and proposes solutions. You can then review, edit, and send the response with confidence.

Use Case 3: Create a document based on another document

Sometimes, you might need to create a document that is based on another document, such as a report, a proposal, a presentation, or a blog post. You might want to reuse some of the content, structure, or style from the original document, but also adapt it to your specific purpose, audience, or tone. With Microsoft Copilot, you can do this with ease. Just upload the original document into Copilot and ask it to create a document based on it. Copilot will generate a new document that follows the format, layout, and language of the original document, but also modifies it according to your instructions. You can then customize, enhance, and finalize the document as you wish.
