AI is Coming to Microsoft Apps

Rental of Software

While it’s true that AI applications have the potential to greatly improve efficiency and accuracy, it’s important to keep in mind that the technology is constantly evolving and improving. This means that an application that is considered state-of-the-art today may become outdated in very quickly. What used to take years to develop will take only months or days.  Additionally, the cost of maintaining and updating an application can be high. Therefore, instead of buying an application, it will be more cost-effective to rent or use it as a service, allowing you to take advantage of the latest technology without the high costs associated with ownership. This way you can regularly update the application and keep up with the current technology without the burden of owning it.

How will AI change the workplace?

The integration of AI into various industries has the potential to greatly change the way jobs are done. Here are a few examples:

  1. Automation of tasks: AI has the ability to automate repetitive tasks, which can lead to increased efficiency and reduced costs for companies. This could result in some jobs being made redundant, but it could also free up time for employees to focus on higher-level tasks that require creativity and problem-solving.
  2. Augmentation of tasks: AI can also be used to augment the capabilities of human workers, such as by providing them with real-time data and analytics to help them make better decisions. This could lead to a more productive and efficient workforce.
  3. Creation of new jobs: The integration of AI into various industries may also lead to the creation of new jobs, such as those related to designing, building, and maintaining AI systems.
  4. Reskilling: With the integration of AI, some jobs will evolve and require new skills, thus reskilling and retraining will be necessary.

Overall, while AI has the potential to change the way jobs are done and potentially displace some jobs, it also has the potential to create new jobs and improve the productivity and efficiency of human workers.

When is this going to happen?

It already is.   The GenCare team has been helping customers integrate AI into workflows for a few years.  The pace of change is excelling quickly.  This post is a great example.

Purchasing Office software is a big mistake going forward.  You are buying technology that is about to become obsolete very quickly.

Management of change is going to be a challenge.  Start planning for it.

How did I craft this post?

I used ChatGPT to write part of the post and edited the output.  I also used Dall-e to generate the image.  Normally I would spend hours crafting a post like this.  I requested that the AI draft the 1st 2 sections and edited those and added the last 2.  The 1st section I made changes to.  The second one is straight from ChatGPT.  15 minutes from start to finish. That’s leverage in increasing productivity that is here today.
