Microsoft has announced a groundbreaking change to its Windows keyboard, introducing the “Copilot key,” marking the first modification to the device in nearly three decades. 

This move underscores the tech giant’s commitment to infusing AI into its products, aligning with its substantial investments in artificial intelligence.

The Copilot key is a testament to Microsoft’s ambitions for AI-enabled PCs, designed to harness advanced chips capable of running large-language models and AI-powered applications directly on the device, rather than relying on the cloud.

This strategic move is anticipated to revitalise the personal computer market post-pandemic, with analysts predicting accelerated adoption of AI-capable PCs starting in 2025.

Expected to make its debut on some new Windows 11 PCs showcased at the CES technology trade show in Las Vegas later this month, the Copilot key will be available on various Windows devices, including upcoming Surface devices, after February this year. 

Introduced in November, Copilot boasts versatile capabilities, including text summarisation and virtual meetings, and seamlessly integrates across Microsoft’s web and productivity apps. 

Microsoft’s innovative step in incorporating a dedicated AI button into its keyboards heralds a new era of intelligent computing experiences for users.
