The Microsoft AI Copilot: An Incredible Tool with Some Limitations


As technology continues to advance at an impressive pace, we find ourselves constantly amazed by the latest innovations. One such innovation is the Microsoft AI Copilot, a tool that has the potential to revolutionize various industries. In this article, we will delve into the capabilities of Copilot and discuss our firsthand experience with it. While Copilot certainly has its strengths, it also has some limitations that need to be considered.

Heading 1: We watched a Super Bowl ad for Microsoft Copilot.

During the Super Bowl, Microsoft unveiled a captivating ad showcasing the capabilities of Copilot. The ad caught our attention, and we were eager to explore this incredible tool for ourselves.

Heading 2: The ad showcased the capabilities of Copilot.

The Super Bowl ad left us in awe of Copilot’s potential. It demonstrated how the tool could generate storyboard images, write code for a 3D open-world game, quiz us in organic chemistry, and design a sign for a classic truck repair garage. The possibilities seemed endless, and we were excited to put Copilot to the test.

Heading 2.1: We tested some of the prompts shown in the commercial.

Intrigued by the many prompts shown in the ad, we decided to try a few ourselves. We were curious to see if Copilot could deliver the same impressive results it showcased in the commercial.

Heading 2.1.1: The first prompt was to generate storyboard images, but the results were not exactly like the ones in the ad.

We started with the prompt to generate storyboard images. While Copilot was able to provide us with some images, they weren’t exactly like the ones in the ad. The illustrations generated by Copilot lacked some of the fine details and artistic nuances we saw in the commercial. Nevertheless, the tool’s ability to quickly generate visuals was impressive.

Heading 2.1.2: The next prompt was to write code for a 3D open-world game, but the free version of Copilot couldn’t generate the code.

Next, we tried a prompt to write code for a 3D open-world game. Unfortunately, the free version of Copilot couldn’t generate the code we needed. It seemed that this particular feature was only available in the paid version of Copilot. While this limitation was disappointing, it highlighted the need to upgrade to Copilot Pro for more advanced functionalities.

Heading 2.1.3: We tried a prompt to quiz us in organic chemistry, and it provided a question but took a long time to respond.

Intrigued by Copilot’s ability to quiz us in organic chemistry, we gave it a try. The tool did provide us with a question, but the response time was considerably slower than we anticipated. It took a noticeable amount of time for Copilot to generate the question and provide a response. While the accuracy of the question was commendable, the delay was a drawback worth considering.

Heading 2.1.4: Another prompt was to design a sign for a classic truck repair garage, and the generated signs were different from the ones in the ad.

We were particularly interested in Copilot’s ability to design a sign for a classic truck repair garage. However, the signs generated by Copilot were quite different from the ones showcased in the commercial. The signs lacked the vintage charm we saw in the ad, which was slightly disappointing. Nonetheless, the tool still managed to create visually appealing designs.

Heading 2.1.5: The commercial didn’t reveal the full prompt for the last interaction, where Copilot responded positively.

Curiosity piqued, we were eager to explore the full prompt for the last interaction shown in the commercial. Unfortunately, the commercial deliberately left out the details of that particular prompt. Nevertheless, Copilot’s positive response indicated that the tool possesses considerable potential yet to be fully explored.

Heading 3: Copilot has a paid version called Copilot Pro, which offers more control and better outputs.

To unlock the full potential of Copilot, Microsoft offers a paid version called Copilot Pro. This upgraded version provides users with more control and better outputs, addressing some of the limitations we encountered in the free version.

Heading 3.1: Copilot Pro costs $20 per month and can be used within Microsoft 365 apps.

Copilot Pro comes at a reasonable price of $20 per month. Subscribing to Copilot Pro unlocks enhanced features and allows for its usage within the Microsoft 365 apps. With this subscription, users gain access to advanced capabilities and a more refined experience.

In conclusion, the Microsoft AI Copilot is undeniably an incredible tool with the potential to transform various industries. The Super Bowl ad captured our attention and prompted us to explore Copilot’s capabilities. While the tool has its limitations, particularly in the free version, upgrading to Copilot Pro offers enhanced functionalities and better outputs. Overall, Copilot marks another significant milestone in the field of artificial intelligence, opening doors to endless possibilities.
