One last thing, share this podcast with a friend or colleague, you says foundation for daily or weekly discussions on the topics that are relevant. To you and the industry, a form of mentoring, they can subscribe wherever you listen to podcasts. All right, we're going to take a look at the Microsoft announcements.

We're going to look at the tech crunch article. Microsoft wants to make windows and AI operating system launches, copilot plus PCs. So Microsoft is bringing generative AI to the forefront of windows and PCs running it. And here's what the article has to say at a pair of keynotes during the annual Phil developer conference this week, the company unveiled a new lineup of windows machines called a copilot plus PCs. Plus generative AI powered features like recall, which helps users find apps, files. Or other content they've viewed in the past.

Co-pilot. Microsoft brand of generative, AI will soon be far more deeply integrated into windows 11 experience. And new Microsoft service devices are on the way. So they've round up all the major announcements, volume metric apps. This is essentially the rival to the apple vision pro and they've partnered with quest.

And this is the thing I think that Sacha has brought to Microsoft and it is this whole partnering I culture, if you will. They're partnering all over the place, partnering with epic, they're partnering with Metta they're. They'd literally feels to me like they will partner. With open AI feels like they'll partner with anybody. And it's really reaping some benefits.

So volume metric apps, Microsoft springing windows volume, metric apps, basically spatially aware, interactive VR apps to medical quest headsets through a partnership with Metta. Microsoft says it'll deliver windows 365 and local PC connectivity to quest headsets. And enabling developers to extend their apps into 3d space. During the keynote Microsoft should offer digital exploded, 3d view of Xbox controller for the perspective of meta-question three headset.

And there's a picture in here of it. And so they're getting into the spatial computing. They also show off. With these headsets on, you could have a massive setup, right? So you could have multiple screens in every direction. And they have essentially the Microsoft apps running in front of them on three different, very large screens. So they're getting into that.

The big announcement, those copilot plus PCs, Coldplay plus PCs are Microsoft's vision for AI first. Flagship windows hardware, if you will. So all include dedicated chips called NPUs to power AI experience like recall, and they shipped with 16 gig of Ram minimum paired with a solid state storage. The first copilot plus P PCs we'll pack Qualcomm, Snapdragon X, elite, and plus chips, which Microsoft claims. Deliver up to 15 hours of web browsing and 20 hours of video battery life. Chip makers, Intel and AMD are also committed to building processors for co-pilot plus devices. In partnership with a range of manufacturers, including Acer, a Seuss. Dell HP, Lenovo, Samsung, you get the picture. So this whole concept, and I'm going to come back to some of the features of this. The biggest one being recalled.

We'll talk about it, but it's an example. Of what a, a AI powered laptop can do. They released some surface pros and surface laptops. Microsoft's newly unveiled surface device. Focus on performance and battery. And they give some specs on that and the amount of, um, Mount of charge and the OLED displays 90% faster than previous surface pros and so forth and a little faster than the Microsoft. Then the apple air, Mac book, air products. You got the picture?

It's just hardware announcement. Recalls this. This was the one that's interesting is getting a lot of press. It's getting a lot of press for various reasons. Some good, some bad. When does Eleven's forthcoming recall feature can remember apps and content, a user access on their PC weeks or even months ago.

For example, helping them to find a discord chat, where they were discussing clothes. They were considering buying users can use recalls timeline to scroll back. To see what they were working on in the recent past and drill down. In files like PowerPoint presentations to surface. Info potentially relevant to their searches. Microsoft says that recall can create associations between colors, images, and more to let users search for practically anything on their PCs in natural language. Not dissimilar to startup rewind tech. Developers will be able to improve recall by adding contextual information to their apps. And Microsoft claims all user data associated with recalls kept private and on device and not used to train AI models.

Importantly. Here's more from Microsoft. Your snapshots are yours. They stay locally on your PC. You can delete individual snapshots. Adjusting delete ranges of time and settings or pause at any point. From the icon in the system tray. On your task bar, you can also filter apps and websites from being saved. So why is it getting a. Attention in both directions on the positive direction. It's amazing.

Everything I'm working on my PC right now, all the different apps and stuff I've opened, it's essentially recording that. And now you start to get the idea of what the negatives are, but anyway, it's essentially recording that. And if the app's written in such a way can actually provide a metadata, if you will contextual data around the app and what goes on in the app and that kind of stuff. The search is a natural language and can pick up on things.

And I'm looking for where I was searching well, in their example, I was shopping for clothes and whatever. And it'll pull up three different times where you were actually one, you were hitting a website and other, you were in discord, another, you were. On, I don't know. On Instagram and other, you were, you had a Pinterest board up. And it'll give you those images, and then you just click on those and you go, it's like stepping back in time,

to there. Now, the reason it's getting noticed from a privacy standpoint is we're essentially recording everything you're doing on your PC. So that has raised concerns from people and it should raise concerns. For you from a healthcare perspective, I thought about it. One of the things I would be concerned about is Essentially legal action.

And are you required to provide that? Information down to that level of the PC is actually recording. What the doctor is doing on that PC. So from a discovery motion standpoint, that's a whole host of information. That's now. Potentially. I don't know. Able to be requested and having to be gathered. So some something to consider there.

Interesting, powerful feature. Directionally including AI in the operating system is really bold and really makes a lot of sense. I under I understand where they're going. And I'll give you a couple of, so much in a minute here. So they have a image editors editing in live transitions. Th, the stuff we can do with imaging images with AI is getting more and more interesting.

They have an announcement around that. Team co-pilot and extensions. They have announcements around that and they have a bunch of windows, copilot runtime. Type modules and bot builders, Snapdragon dev kit. Partnership with Khan academy, so forth and so on. So a lot of announcements. In this, I think the most relevant though is the vision around. The operating system now being a AI enabled an AI infused if you will.

I think that's absolutely the direction that the world is going to go. And I'll be honest with you. I didn't see it as clearly as I do right now. Satya saw it well before the rest of us. And has been building it out. And is releasing it. If not in a ton of features, he's releasing it in. In concepts. And, to a certain extent, I think apple was heading in this direction and others are heading in this direction. But they may, they're definitely behind from a vision standpoint and being out there and leading the conversation. But it remains to be seen, which operating system will integrate. AI, but I think there's a race that's going to be going on. As a CIO, I'd be concerned about the PCs I'm going to be buying in the future.

And how much of these advanced features are going to be. On my PCs and how much of them are really necessary. Am I am I paying for features and things that I don't necessarily need? Am I using a power to fuel this technology that I'm not necessarily gonna need? Am I. Creating a liability for my health system. By bringing this technology in, I think, although those are relevant questions.

And by the way, I think this is how AI just seeps into every aspect of healthcare. I think it just comes in one vendor at a time. Hey, we included that into this. Solution. Hey, we included that into the hardware. Hey, we included that into the routers. Hey, that's included into your wifi devices, your NFC devices.

You name it. It's just. It's just going to start showing up and it's going to be a part of your biomed devices going to be a part of everything. And so we have to get in front of that for sure. From a hate protecting the organization standpoint, but we also have to get in front of it from a, what is the opportunity? What can we do today that we couldn't do yesterday? And what are we going to be able to do six months from now that we can't do today? Be nice to be creating that roadmap and thinking about. What is going to be possible from a hardware, from a software perspective, from a workflow perspective. From an outcome perspective.

So anyway, Microsoft leading the way such as a. I would not bet against such at this point, he really does seem to be making all the right moves. That's all for today.
