You’ll soon be hearing more about Microsoft Copilot and Bing Image Creator as these innovative technologies come to Microsoft Edge and Bing. The news of their arrival was delivered at Microsoft’s Surface Event, along with several more AI and hardware announcements.

Microsoft is adding Copilot, a helpful AI that guides you through all your computing tasks. Copilot, which has already been assisting programmers with writing code, is also integrated with Microsoft Office to help you write Word documents, summarize text, and analyze data.

Copilot also is coming to Microsoft Shopping to help you find the best deals by checking for promo codes for extra savings. Shopping Copilot will also guide you in making shopping decisions.

For example, when you’re trying to pick the right soccer shoes based on your skill level, you’ll also be able to use a photo or a saved image as a starting point for shopping. Copilot will find products with a similar appearance.

DALL-E 3 images

If you haven’t seen DALL-E 3 images yet, you might be amazed at how good Bing Image Creator becomes with it. Microsoft announced Bing will use OpenAI’s latest AI image generator, and this advanced technology is rolling out soon.

Microsoft is very open about using AI. Given the massive leaps in image quality, often matching photographs and artwork in detail and nuance, it’s essential to indicate that it’s made by a machine. Every Bing image is marked as “generated by AI” for better transparency.

Microsoft Content Credentials adds a cryptographic digital watermark to all AI-generated images in Bing. This data also includes the time and date of creation, for a complete record of when and how it was made. Content Credentials are also coming to the AI-enhanced and upgraded Microsoft Paint and Designer.

AI has been Microsoft’s focus this year and the AI revolution is not slowing down. Copilot is making its way into every Microsoft app and service.

In addition to the AI announcements, Microsoft revealed two new Surface devices: the Surface Laptop Studio 2 and the Surface Laptop Go 3.

No, Intel’s Lunar Lake CPUs aren’t being delayed
Intel keynote.

Intel's hotly-anticipated Lunar Lake CPUs look like they're suffering a delay, at least according to a report from DigiTimes. The outlet, which covers semiconductor news, says that shipments of the chips are arriving in September and that they were originally planned for June. Intel says otherwise, however.

When Intel first announced Lunar Lake, it said they would arrive between July and September of this year. More specifically, the company pointed out that they'd be available before the holiday shopping season. If June was the original plan, we'd already have a lot more details about the processors. It looks like September was the target all along.

Hacker claims to have hit Apple days after hacking AMD

Data breaches happen all the time, but when the giants get hit, it's impossible not to wonder what kind of critical data may become exposed. Earlier this week, notorious cybercriminal Intelbroker reported that they managed to hack AMD. Now, they followed up with claims about hacking Apple, and went as far as to share some internal source code on a hacking forum.

As Apple has yet to comment, all we have to go off is the forum post, first shared by HackManac on X (formerly Twitter). In the post, Intelbroker states that Apple suffered a data breach that led to the exposure of the source code for some of its internal tools. The tools include AppleConnect-SSO, Apple-HWE-Confluence-Advanced. There's been no mention of any customer data being leaked, which is good news, but there could still be some impact on Apple if this proves to be true.

Alexa to get supercharged with AI
Alexa can now handle multiple requests in a list.

Siri isn't the only digital assistant getting an AI update in the near future. According to sources speaking to Reuters, Amazon is reportedly planning an expansive update for its decade-old digital conversationalist that would implement a two-tier service subscription that could cost users $5 t0 $10 per month.

The new voice assistant, dubbed "Remarkable Alexa" per the sources, could arrive as soon as August 2024. The project, code-named "Banyan" after the species of large ficus tree, has become something of a pet project for CEO Andy Jassy, who promised a “more intelligent and capable Alexa” to shareholders in an April letter. The sources warned, however, that the rumored pricing and release dates could shift as we get closer to August, depending on how well the project comes together prior to that deadline.
