Today, we are excited to unveil new features within Power Platform that incorporate next-generation AI, in including conversation boosters with Power Virtual Agents and AI Builder introducing a create text with GPT model. These features bring both a new way for developers to solve business problems and a new way for end-users to leverage AI in the flow of their work to be more productive. This is a glimpse of what’s to come as we continue to ramp up our investment in AI across Power Platform. We recognize the significance of both AI and low code for organizations and the benefits these technologies in union can have for all developers: a more intuitive, iterative experience for citizen developers and accelerated development for professional developers. We announced AI Builder 4 years ago as the first AI capability in Power Platform, followed by Power Apps Ideas 18 months ago, which was the first infusion of generative AI in a commercially- available product. And we have continued to invest, with the addition of express design in Power Apps, and description to flow in Power Automate late last year. Today, we’re taking another big step forward in this journey with the launch of next-generation AI features for Power Virtual Agents and AI Builder, enabled by Azure Open AI service.
