#AI – Otra característica genial basada en Inteligencia Artificial en #PowerPoint: subtítulos en tiempo real

Buenas !

Hace unos días, escribí sobre una característica interesante en PowerPoint que es 100% basada en Inteligencia Artificial: PowerPoint Idea Designer.

En PowerPoint, ademas de ayudarnos con el diseño de slides, también es posible utilizar Inteligencia Artificial en escenarios para ayudar a las personas a comunicarse en diferentes idiomas o con problemas de accesibilidad.

Sólo tenemos que hacer clic 2 veces para activar subtítulos en tiempo real en PowerPoint.

Esta función está disponible, en las últimas versiones de PowerPoint (o tal vez en el canal Insider, he perdido el rastro). Y es muy fácil de usar.

Es necesario habilitar el acceso a su micrófono principal y eso es todo. Una vez que la función está activa, verá los subtítulos en modo de tiempo real mientras está hablando.

#AI – Another cool AI feature in #PowerPoint: realtime subtitles / captions

Hi !

A few days ago, I wrote about a cool feature in PowerPoint which is 100% supported by AI: PowerPoint Idea Designer.

However, AI is used not only to support design, also in scenarios to support accessibility or to help people communicating in different languages. You only need to click 2 times to activate real-time captions and subtitles to PowerPoint.

This feature is available, in the latest versions of PowerPoint (or maybe in the Insider channel). And it’s very easy to use.

You need to enable access to your main microphone and that’s it. Once the feature is active, you will see the subtitles in real time mode while you are speaking.

#AI – Microsoft launches AI Business School

Hi !

How many times you listen sentences like these ones:

  • We will use Artificial Intelligence to analyze historical data and make some predictions to improve XYZ.
  • We can use Machine Learning to get a better understanding of the problem.
  • This is a typical scenario for AI, we can solve this using AI.
  • And more …

Myself ? tons of times. And don’t get me wrong, these sentences make a lot of sense in different scenarios, however they are becoming a mantra for some groups with zero AI knowledge.

That’s why the idea of the Microsoft AI Business School is amazing. The AI Business School presents a series of case studies and videos created to help business executives design and successfully implement an AI strategy.

This is the next step on programs like the AI School for developers, where we can find tons of amazing (and not so amazing) AI materials.

IMHO, the main and most important resource in the AI Business School, is that the materials are based on years of conversations and experiences with clients. So, this is not the typical AI book, this are real customer experiences implementing solutions which involves some level of Artificial Intelligence.

Some days ago, Microsoft released a study about the impact of AI on company culture and leadership. About 800 business executives in the U.S. and 7 European nations — including the U.K., France, Germany, and Russia — participated in the survey. And this is the next step, on bring the real state culture behind AI focused on business leaders.

The people at Venture Beat, really nails the idea behind this AI Business School

… the AI Business School advises companies to celebrate cross-sectional teamwork and make sure employees in every layer of their organization feel empowered to speak up about ways AI can be used in their own jobs. It’s something CFO Amy Hood came to learn when AI was brought into her company’s finance department.

“Her role was to build confidence, excitement, rewards, and a system for people who would feel comfortable enough to, quite frankly, volunteer their own business processes to be reinvented,” Azizirad said. …

And as usual, a video is the best way to introduce this:

#Office – Uno de los mejores ejemplos de uso de #AI con #Powerpoint (luego llegará el de Excel en mobile)

Buenas  !

Cuando hablamos de Inteligencia Artificial, hay muchos ejemplos que podemos utilizar para demostrar las capacidades de AI (Artificial Intelligence). En lo personal, siempre prefiero utilizar ejemplos que sean fácilmente trasladados a nuestro día a día. Es por eso que la opción [Design Ideas] en PowerPoint es uno de los mejores ejemplos que suelo utilizar.

En la siguiente animación podemos ver como partiendo de una simple Slide con 3 elementos de texto, [Design Ideas] nos presenta una serie de estilos aplicados sobre la slide original que realmente mejoran nuestra presentación. Es interesante mencionar que además de agregar un estilo visual a la Slide, también agrega iconos para cada uno de los 3 bullets, que están relacionados con el contenido de los mismos.

Para que quede más claro, esta es la slide original

Y este es el diseño propuesto.

Hi !

There are tons of demos about amazing using of Artificial Intelligence. I always try to choose and show the ones, who can be easily translated into our day to day experience. That´s why the option [Design Ideas] in Power Point is an amazing demo on how to use this.
