2024 begins under the banner of AI. Microsoft ready to make millions of users happy. But will there really be no more bugs?

2024, the year of the definitive explosion of Artificial Intelligence. An AI that will be present on every device: from smartphones (the first of the new year will be Samsung, in January, with the new Galaxy S24 arriving) to PCs, with Microsoft ready to broaden the audience for its Copilot.

Microsoft AI, turning point in 2024: optimism and caution – Sjbeez

The Redmond giant promises to make millions of users happy with its new AI, even if the question arises spontaneously: with the new AI, will all the bugs present on Windows really disappear, dealing with the same critical issues as Microsoft operating systems and believes that machine-generated code should be treated with a "mix of optimism and caution" because programming can be automated with large language models, but the code can’t always be trusted. And here the first doubts arise.

Microsoft’s strategy for Windows: It’s all about Copilot. News and doubts on the horizon

These large pre-trained language models include OpenAI’s Codex, Google’s BERT natural language program, and DeepMind’s work on code generation. OpenAI’s Codex, unveiled in August, powers Microsoft-owned GitHub’s Copilot tool. Of course, in favor of the theories of Microsoft’s beliefs, there is Windows Copilot which has made a splash in the company’s experience, with really high-performance features so far.

Just a starting point, given that on the horizon we are increasingly convinced that in 2023, Redmond will launch this revolutionary update that will remodel Windows 11, with an enhanced version of its artificial intelligence. Microsoft’s strategy should be what almost all the industry media hypothesize. The near future revolves around Windows Copilot, ready to become a proactive problem solver, a Windows 11 increasingly integrated with AI and, above all, capable of self-repairing when classic bugs arise, in practice it will fix itself.

Idyllic words, if they were to become a concrete fact. It is that currently “you can’t always trust the code” that is worrying: completely automating the entire process of verifying code compilation, resolving bug messages and so on, what does this entail? Will we be able to intervene? Or are we at the mercy of a system for which there is optimism but also caution? Questions that will be answered in 2024.
