Microsoft has unveiled a significant update to its keyboards, introducing an artificial intelligence (AI) key that will provide access to the company’s AI tool, Copilot, on new Windows 11 PCs. Copilot, powered by Microsoft’s major investment in OpenAI, assists users with tasks such as searching, writing emails, and creating images. The addition of the AI key is being compared to the introduction of the Windows key nearly 30 years ago and is expected to simplify and enhance the user experience. Microsoft will showcase the new keyboards featuring the Copilot key at the upcoming CES tech event. While some argue that the lack of keyboard innovation over the past three decades is not something to be proud of, the introduction of the AI key demonstrates Microsoft’s commitment to this feature and its potential to attract and engage users across its products.
