The power of generative AI

Microsoft Copilot is powered by Generative AI, a subset of artificial intelligence (AI) that leverages machine learning techniques to generate creative and novel content. It can create anything from written text to visual artwork, music, and even code. The key aspect of generative AI is its ability to learn patterns and structures from input data, and then use this learned knowledge to generate new, original content that is similar but not identical to the input data.  

Research from Stanford and MIT found that user productivity can increase between 15 – 35%1, while McKinsey believe that up to 70% of employee time can be freed-up using AI2.   

How do you build a business case for Microsoft Copilot?

Building a business case for AI implementation in your organisation can start with identifying a problem. This approach ensures that the use of AI is purposeful and targeted, rather than being used for its own sake.
