Microsoft revealed new tools on Tuesday with the goal of encouraging programmers to incorporate AI-focused technologies into Windows software.

Aiming to encourage programmers to incorporate AI-focused technology into Windows software, Microsoft (MSFT.O) unveiled new tools on Tuesday. The company is competing with Alphabet (GOOGL.O), Amazon.com (AMZN.O), and Apple (AAPL.O) to become the leader in this rapidly developing field.

CEO Satya Nadella pushed new application programming interfaces, or APIs, that facilitate developers’ access to Microsoft’s artificial intelligence (AI) technology at a developer conference in Seattle.

According to the firm, Github Copilot, a generative AI tool from Microsoft that boosts productivity for computer programmers, is currently being used by 1.8 million engineers.

During his keynote speech at the Build conference, Nadella said, “What stands out to me as I look back at this past year is how you all, as developers, have taken all of these capabilities and are applying them, quite frankly, to change the world around us.”

Microsoft unveiled new capabilities for Teams, a video and text chat platform, and other business productivity apps like email. Copilot AI is software developed by Microsoft. Google, a division of Alphabet, revealed a similar set of AI capabilities to assist users with office applications last week at its developer conference.

Microsoft last week revealed the specifics of its new development tools.

After reaching a record high of $432.97 earlier in the session, Microsoft’s shares were up 1.2% at $430.67 on Tuesday afternoon.

Microsoft announced last Thursday that it will provide its cloud computing clients with an AMD AI processor platform to rival Nvidia (NVDA.O) whose graphics processing units have evolved into the industry standard for AI computing. This announcement was also directed towards developers.

The AMD (AMD.O) platform chips were developed by Microsoft and connect the processors via Nvidia’s Infiniband networking technology.

According to Microsoft Chief Technology Officer Kevin Scott, developers may include OpenAI’s new GPT4-o model, which operates on Microsoft’s infrastructure, into their product for 12 times less money than they could have with previous iterations of the technology.

Microsoft is OpenAI’s biggest backer and incorporates some of the industry leader’s technology into its own offerings.

Microsoft unveiled a range of Copilot+ desktops on Monday that include artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities like the ability to search through previous user activities in almost any program. The new computers have Qualcomm (QCOM.O) processors (O9Ty.F) and Arm-based processors (O9Ty.F).
