Microsoft introduces first major change in keyboards in decades and it is all about artificial intelligence

Tech giant Microsoft has announced a major change in its keyboards in three decades after adding an artificial intelligence (AI) key in it.

The key will help users access Microsoft’s AI tool, Copilot, on new Windows 11 PCs.

“Today, we are excited to take the next significant step forward and introduce a new Copilot key to Windows 11 PCs. In this new year, we will be ushering in a significant shift toward a more personal and intelligent computing future where AI will be seamlessly woven into Windows from the system, to the silicon, to the hardware,” read a blog post of the software major.

“This will not only simplify people’s computing experience but also amplify it, making 2024 the year of the AI PC,” the company said.

The company further said: “Over the last year, we have been at the forefront of this shift, innovating and improving our product experiences with Copilot, your everyday AI companion, at the center. From reinventing the way people search with Copilot in Bing, and unlocking productivity with Copilot for Microsoft 365, to reimagining how people get things done on the PC with Copilot in Windows, we’ve listened to feedback and doubled down to create an experience that helps people every day.”
