Artificial intelligence (AI) is at the heart of every device and app around us. Microsoft chief product officer Panos Panay says he can also “reinvent the way we do everything in Windows.”
At AMD’s CES 2023 press conference, Panay spoke conservatively about how AI could change how users interact with Windows. Of course, he didn’t delve into the details, but it can be argued that the next version of Windows or future updates to Windows 11 will make him rely on AI more than ever.
It’s not yet clear how AI will affect how users interact with Windows, but we can speculate a few things. The most likely way AI can change the way Windows works is through voice commands. Windows users traditionally use a mouse and keyboard to navigate their computers, but AI can replace both.
We still have a long way to go to command computers via brainwaves, but artificial intelligence could offer revolutionary ways to interact with our devices. In the future, you may not need to buy a mouse or keyboard anymore.
AI wants to change the way we interact with Windows
Microsoft’s chief product officer has made several suggestions for how companies can employ AI in their products, such as blurring backgrounds with webcams, detecting eye contact, and automatically framing someone in a conference call. .
Of course, let’s not forget that Panos Panay spoke at the AMD conference and announced the new Ryzen 7000 mobile processors. The chip maker claims these are the first x86 chips with a dedicated AI engine and are 20% faster than the Apple M2 chip in the MacBook.
Microsoft and AMD have a long history of working together. Panay, who attended the AMD conference to unveil a chip with a purpose-built AI engine, promises new horizons for using AI in Microsoft products such as the Surface Dou and Surface Laptop. Microsoft uses AI processing in its ARM chips to eliminate background noise during calls.
