Conversational AI Shaping the Future of Businesses

In software development, automation has traditionally required machine-readable input and often output as well. Obtaining answers to questions has typically necessitated either programmer assistance or a skilled software end-user. In this regard, the coming years are poised for a wave of changes that will bring information more easily to end-users. 

Artificial intelligence, especially large language models (LLMs), has created the opportunity to automate processes where the input has not previously been machine-readable, requiring human interpretation of the input for the machine and presentation of the output to the consumer. 

This capability provides an opportunity to bring automation and everyday work-simplifying assistants into processes where it was previously difficult. 

Another challenge that companies face when adopting various external tools is data security and managing all technical rights and access to ensure that data does not fall into the wrong hands. Recently, data security has become particularly important as the aggressiveness with which companies are attacked technologically continues to grow. 

Microsoft has taken the OpenAI LLM model and embedded it into its infrastructure, building around it a set of tools that allow you to safely and within your company’s data framework introduce artificial intelligence and create suitable tools – meet Microsoft Copilot Studio. 

Microsoft Copilot Studio is a powerful tool that allows developers to create and customize conversational artificial intelligence companions or applications, also known as “bots.” This platform is part of Microsoft’s offering of artificial intelligence (AI) tools and services and is designed for businesses looking to integrate AI functionalities. 

Copilot Studio enables the creation of customized conversational interfaces for various applications and environments. The platform offers several features and tools, including the ability to create customized AI models, develop interactive conversational interfaces, integrate various data sources, and automate processes. 

One of Copilot Studio’s main features is the ability to customize existing AI models to specific needs and environments. Developers can create customized applications that meet their organization’s specific requirements and processes. In addition, the platform provides rich generative AI capabilities, allowing for the creation of diverse responses and interactions. 

How to Apply This in Practice? 
For example, if a company has a wide range of business processes involving customer service, project management, reporting, personnel management, and much more, there are several ways the company can use Microsoft Copilot Studio in its internal operations: 

In Customer Service. 
It is possible to use Copilot Studio to create customized applications that help the customer service team respond to customer inquiries more quickly and efficiently. The companion could answer frequently asked questions, direct customers to the right resources, and help solve problems. 

In Project Management.
It is possible to create an application that helps the project management team more easily monitor and manage projects. An in-house AI could generate reports on project status, remind of deadlines, and help create schedules. 

In Human Resources. 
Copilot Studio can be used to automate certain HR processes, such as onboarding new employees and managing benefits. Through a simple interface, new employees can familiarize themselves with internal rules and processes; fill out necessary forms and documents. 

In Financial Processes.
For financial processes, an automatic application can be created that links internal and/or group information to more easily track and manage company expenses, submit reports, and make budget forecasts. Integrated fully with financial data systems, the application would provide real-time financial analyses, forecasts, etc. 

In Marketing.
Copilot Studio can be used to create applications that help create marketing materials, analyze market data, and plan marketing campaigns. The companion could provide recommendations on target audiences and marketing channels and help track marketing activity results. 

In Quality Control. 
Copilot Studio can be used to create applications that help monitor product quality and ensure compliance with standards. It would be possible to generate reports on defects, warn of potential issues, and recommend corrective actions. 

As the selected examples above illustrate, Copilot Studio can be applied virtually in any area within a company. From business analytics to human resources and event management. While traditionally accustomed to AI applications using information from the internet, with Copilot Studio, your company becomes the database.

Copilot Studio represents just the tip of the iceberg in future technology. Greater advancements can be expected in this field where AI makes our everyday lives easier and more efficient. Whether in the business world or household smart devices, Copilot Studio is just one example of how technology is making our lives better.
