Secure Microsoft Copilot AI Offering Available For Use

Microsoft has recently rebranded its artificial intelligence offering from Bing Chat Enterprise to Microsoft Copilot, which is now available to all faculty and staff. Although this service uses the Open AI’s ChatGPT language model, any data entered into it is not shared or used in training the Open AI language models and is the most secure option available.

The consumer versions of generative AI tools, such as ChatGTP and Google Bard, do not offer data protection. Data entered into the consumer versions of these tools may be used to train that tool’s language model and, as a result, could be disclosed publicly. As a result, it is important that any sensitive data of the university not be shared with the consumer versions of these AI services.

Copilot can help you with tasks such as answering natural language questions, generating bullet points, outlines, and summaries, analyzing data, summarizing documents, creating graphical artworks based on your prompts, and much more. It uses generative AI capabilities to provide better answers, greater efficiency, and new ways to be creative.

To log in and begin using Microsoft Copilot, visit copilot.microsoft.com. Sign in using your network ID followed by @case.edu (i.e. abc123@case.edu). After the first time you engage Copilot, you will be asked to agree to their Terms of Agreement.
