Microsoft is bringing Clippy back - in an entirely new place

The Independent - Tech

Microsoft is planning to bring Clippy, its Office 97 assistant that looks like a paperclip, back to Windows. The software giant tweeted a photo of Clippy saying that, if the post received 20,000 likes, it would replace the paperclip emoji in Microsoft Office with Clippy. At time of writing, the tweet has nearly 134,000 likes. Clippy infamously offered support in Microsoft Word and other programs, such as Microsoft Publisher, but by 2008 the assistant was killed. Windows 10, Microsoft's current operating system, uses Cortana as its virtual assistant – a name taken from the Halo game franchise.

Global Big Data Conference

#artificialintelligence

Buying off-the-shelf AI (Artificial Intelligence) software is a good first step for those companies that are new to the technology. There should be little need to make investments in technical infrastructure or to hire expensive data sciences. There will also be the benefit of getting a solution that has been tested by other customers. For the most part, there should be confidence in the accuracy levels as the algorithms will probably be implemented properly. But there is a nagging issue: there are many AI applications on the market and it is extremely difficult to determine which is the best option.


What OpenAI and GitHub's "AI pair programmer" means for the software industry

#artificialintelligence

OpenAI has once again made the headlines, this time with Copilot, an AI-powered programming tool jointly built with GitHub. Built on top of GPT-3, OpenAI's famous language model, Copilot is an autocomplete tool that provides relevant (and sometimes lengthy) suggestions as you write code. Copilot is currently available to select applicants as an extension in Visual Studio Code, the flagship programming tool of Microsoft, GitHub's parent company. While the AI-powered code generator is still a work in progress, it provides some interesting hints about the business of large language models and the future directions of the software industry. The official website of Copilot describes it as an "AI pair programmer" that suggests "whole lines or entire functions right inside your editor."
