Microsoft has been adding intelligent features to its Office suite for years (remember the Clippy assistant?). Cloud-based Office 365 benefits from the latest artificial intelligence (AI) technology and machine learning advancements.
Below we round-up the most recent AI-powered features for everyday tasks that make life and business easier in Office 365.
Unlock Powerful Assistance In Word
Thanks to machine learning capabilities, Word Online is now capable of recognising internal company acronyms used in the workplace, by leveraging information previously defined across documents and emails through Microsoft Graph.
Another AI-enabled Word feature is the practical document assistant that recognises information and document type. Opening a CV or resume template file, for example, triggers an automated display of similar work experiences, with the possibility of filtering information.
The selection includes top skills for the particular jobs; similar examples of careers resume, as well as career advice, articles and suitable jobs to apply to, all sourced from LinkedIn’s database.
Go from Data to Rich Insights in Excel
Businesses can automatically perform complex analysis and unlock powerful insights when enabling AI for Excel, therefore derive real value from data analytics.
The Insights feature extracts key insights from new data sets and automatically highlights patterns it detects, which makes it easier to explore and analyse data. It helps identify trends, outliers, and provides new perspectives on data.
