#artificialintelligence

This year at Microsoft Ignite, we are announcing a set of new capabilities across Power Platform that enable business users (Citizen Developers), business analysts, IT admins, and professional developers to build and deliver applications faster and more cost-effectively. Be sure to watch our featured sessions--What's next for the Microsoft Power Platform and Driving a Data Culture with Power BI for a deep dive into these capabilities, as well the news story and featured session for Dynamics 365 for a comprehensive view of innovation across Microsoft Business Applications that can drive innovation and customer excellence across the organization. Since first introducing RPA in Microsoft Power Automate at Ignite in 2019, hundreds of thousands of organizations have adopted Power Automate and are now automating billions of actions each month. In 2020, we introduced Power Automate Desktop, which extended automation capabilities in Power Automate to on-premises processes and local desktop tasks. Today, we are continuing this momentum by announcing that Power Automate Desktop, which offers RPA capabilities that easily automate time-consuming manual work, will be available to Windows 10 users at no additional cost.

Microsoft launches Power Virtual Agents, its no-code bot builder – TechCrunch

#artificialintelligence

Microsoft today announced the public preview of its Power Virtual Agents tool, a new no-code tool for building chatbots that's part of the company's Power Platform, which also includes Microsoft Flow automation tool, which is being renamed to Power Automate today, and Power BI. Built on top of Azure's existing AI smarts and tools for building bots, Power Virtual Agents promises to make building a chatbot almost as easy as writing a Word document. With this, anybody within an organization could build a bot that walks a new employee through the onboarding experience for example. "Power virtual agent is the newest addition to the Power Platform family," said Microsoft's Charles Lamanna in an interview ahead of today's announcement. "Power Virtual Agent is very much focused on the same type of low code, accessible to anybody, no matter whether they're a business user or business analyst or professional developer, to go build a conversational agent that's AI-driven and can actually solve problems for your employees, for your customers, for your partners, in a very natural way." Power Virtual Agents handles the full lifecycle of the bot building experience, from the creation of the dialog to making it available in chat systems that include Teams, Slack, Facebook Messenger and others.
