The CEO of Microsoft Has Introduced New AI-powered Capabilities in Power Automate

Microsoft recently held Ignite 2022 online with a small in-person element. The company used the event to unveil lots of innovations, including new AI Builder capabilities. To recap, AI Builder is a component of Power Platform that provides AI models to optimize business processes. AI Builder enables businesses to use AI to automate processes and glean insights from companies’ data in Power Apps and Power Automate. Here is an excerpt of Satya Nadella’s (The CEO of Microsoft) keynote at Ignite 2022, introducing new AI-powered capabilities in Power Automate:

“When we think about the future of building software, it’s clear innovation in building great application experiences is everybody’s job in the organization. 70% of the new applications will use low-code and no-code by 2025, up from 25% in 2020. And we are turning low-code into no-code with the power of AI. We are bringing the same principles and capabilities behind GitHub Copilot to Power Platform. With Express design in Power Apps, you can upload a hand-drawn sketch, and it will be converted into a working app within seconds. It’s that easy. You can also describe what you want to do in natural languages, and Power Apps will generate a list of most relevant Power Fx formulas for you to choose from. The code essentially writes itself.

And we are going even further, bringing AI-powered Copilot capabilities to Power Automate. You can describe what you want to automate, and it’ll generate suggested flows to jumpstart your flow creation. And all that’s left for you to do is simply set up the connectors and finalize the flow design. It’s never been easier for you to build advanced workflows in automation. The bottom line is, it just can’t be about data scientists or professional developers in your organization, who are building these new capabilities for you. It’s about empowering everyone. Think about your domain experts, your developers. For AI to deliver business value, they can’t be disconnected. That’s why I’m so energized by AI Builder, which makes it simple to add intelligence to applications and workflows you build. You can use pre-built models for common business scenarios like sentiment analysis or invoice processing, or deploy custom models.

Today, we’re introducing the new AI Builder capabilities, including the “feedback loop”, which retrains models to continuously improve their performance and accuracy. One of the most common use cases we see for AI is surfacing the right content at the right time. How do you take the massive amount of content in any organization – proposals, contracts, presentations, designs, invoices, legal documents – and use AI to bring it into the flow of work, as well as business process? Today, we’re introducing Microsoft Syntex, which uses our AI Builder and Power Automate capabilities to automatically read, tag, and index high volumes of content and surface it where it’s needed. Syntex includes AI-powered summarization, translation, and auto-assembly, and annotation features. And it’s, of course, integrated into Microsoft 365 and Teams. Take a series of PDFs or Word documents in a foreign language, for example, and Syntex will translate them instantly. Open the translated document and Syntex can summarize it, providing highlights and links to the most important information. It’s pretty fantastic.”
