Microsoft wants laptop users to get so comfortable with its artificial intelligence chatbot that it will remember everything you’re doing on your computer and help figure out what you want to do next.

On Monday, Microsoft unveiled an upgraded version of Copilot, its AI assistant, to compete with other tech giants offering generative AI technology. This technology can create documents, generate images, and act as a personal assistant. The announcement was made ahead of Microsoft’s annual Build developer conference in Seattle.

The new features include Windows Recall, which allows the AI assistant to remember almost everything you have done on your PC, similar to having a photographic memory. Microsoft ensures users’ privacy by letting them choose what information the AI tracks.

This announcement follows recent AI developments from Google and OpenAI, a close business partner of Microsoft. Last week, Google introduced an updated search engine with AI-generated summaries and showcased a new AI assistant called Astra. OpenAI, the creator of ChatGPT, unveiled a new version of its chatbot with a lifelike voice assistant, which they had to remove because it sounded too much like Scarlett Johansson’s character in the movie Her.

OpenAI also launched a new desktop version of ChatGPT for Mac computers. Apple is expected to reveal its own AI advancements at its annual developer’s conference in June after CEO Tim Cook hinted at significant investments in generative AI.

Microsoft’s new AI features for Windows PCs will be available starting June 18 on premium models from manufacturers like Acer, ASUS, Dell, HP, Lenovo, Samsung, and Microsoft’s Surface devices, starting at $999.
