Are you ready for this year’s Microsoft Inspire 2023 Conference? Because we are, and it seems Microsoft is coming off with some big announcements.

Please join us at #MSInspire tomorrow, as we announce groundbreaking products and partnerships to create new opportunity across our ecosystem in this new era of AI.

Satya Nadella, Microsoft’s CEO

The conference brings together Satya Nadella, Microsoft CEO, Judson Althoff, Microsoft CCO, Nicole Dezen, Microsoft CPO, Charles Lamanna, Microsoft Corporate Vice President, Yusuf Mehdi, Microsoft Consumer CMO, Nick Parker, Microsoft Industry&Partner Sales President.

The conference will take place digitally and offline, on July 18-19, and if we’re to make anything out of it, is that this year, the conference will be all about AI.

You are able to register for the event online if you want to participate. The last conference brought Rust into the Windows 11 OS, so this year we will witness the groundbreaking AI products coming from Microsoft to all of you.

Microsoft Inspire Conference 2023 will be all about AI

We all know just how many resources Microsoft is investing in AI research. For example, Microsoft has announced Windows Copilot is coming to Windows 11 sooner than we thought. The AI is already in the Windows Insider Program and it seems users are excited about it.

Even more, the Redmond-based has invested a considerable budget into AI research and the results are very promising. Orca 13B is a small AI model that gave promising results in tests, and it will become open-source, so you can learn from it and build your own AI model.

And LongMem is another good point in AI research that Microsoft funded: it is the answer for unlimited context length and it might be available to the general public very soon as well.

But Microsoft has not stopped meanwhile: the Redmond-based tech giant has been at the forefront of AI innovations. Models such as phi-1Kosmos-2, or the more recent CoDi, promise a new era for AI. And they’re all happening now.

So this conference will be all about the next steps for AI. Please remember that the Microsoft Inspire Conference presents a 12-month roadmap for the company. This means there will be some very big announcements coming from Microsoft when it comes to AI.
