Microsoft Monthly Update Mar-Apr

Welcome back to another Microsoft Monthly Update where we summarise some of the latest headlines from Microsoft, so that you don’t have to.

In this update we will look at how AI is strengthening te reo Māori use in mainstream media, how you can get ready for copilot and The Future of Work: Reinventing Productivity with AI.

AI strengthens te reo Māori use at NZ’s largest digital news site

In partnership with Straker and Microsoft, Stuff Group Te Puna are working to increase the number of bilingual articles shared on the platform. Though bilingual articles aren’t new to Stuff, using AI will support the team to translate articles at scale before being reviewed by Stuff’s kaiwhakamāori.

Co-Founder and Chief Executive of Straker, Grant Straker (Ngāti Raukawa) says “…today’s generation of Māori and everyone that comes after will be able to engage with regular news content in their own language.”

The Future of Work: Reinventing Productivity with AI

Join Satya Nadella and Jared Spataro as they discuss how AI will power a whole new way of working for every person and organisation.

AI has become so second nature in our digital lives that we often don’t even realise or recognise it. You could say we’ve been using AI on Autopilot and now, with this next generation of AI, we’re moving from Autopilot to copilot.” – Satya Nadella, Chairman and CEO of Microsoft
