The Microsoft Surface event was significant for the future of the PC industry. Not only did the company announce the Copilot+ AI PC platform and new Surface laptop computers, but it also showcased some interesting upcoming capabilities of its Copilot AI assistant.

Microsoft's Copilot, a fierce competitor to Google's Gemini AI assistant, is ready to take on a role in gaming as well. The company demonstrated a very interesting demo in which AI assists a player while playing Minecraft.

Microsoft Copilot AI impressively assists in gaming

In it, the player and Copilot can be heard communicating naturally with each other. The player asks Copilot for advice on how to make a sword, and in return, the AI tells the player to open their inventory and helps them choose items that can be used to craft the sword.

It even advises the player on materials they are missing in their inventory. Truly, a super cool option. The conversation capabilities and real-time conversation skills of the Copilot assistant powered by the latest OpenAI GPT-40 model are particularly impressive.

Thanks to it, Copilot can now hear, speak, and assist players while they play the game. In this regard, it is significantly more advanced than Google's Gemini competition, which still cannot converse with you. Mustafa Suleyman, Microsoft's Executive Director of AI, calls it a "magical experience" that is "smart, intuitive, natural, and above all useful." Microsoft did not specify whether they plan to introduce Copilot into other Xbox or PC games, but it certainly seems like a good possibility now.

If this concept takes off and becomes popular, traditional game guides available on the internet as well as specialized platforms that publish them could soon become a thing of the past. Technology is developing at an amazing rate, and this could take jobs away from people who have been dealing with game tutorials on the internet, most notably YouTube.

It remains to be seen how accurate AI can be in guiding gameplay and how developers will delve into AI hallucinations, writes Android Authority.
