Microsoft has introduced a new tool called the Teams AI Library, aiming to simplify the process of creating intelligent, conversational apps on Teams. The Teams AI Library is a development toolkit that allows developers to build AI-powered apps for Microsoft Teams, using advanced AI components such as conversational AI, prompt management, and safety moderation.
Key features of the Teams AI Library include simple Teams-centric component scaffolding, natural language modeling powered by GPT-based language models, personalized prompts, conversational session history, localization, flexibility to use any large language model (LLM), and responsible AI including moderation hooks, conversation sweeping, and feedback loops.
Microsoft hopes the library will assist in building apps that improve productivity and foster better collaboration. Developers can start using the Teams AI Library by following a quick start guide, building their first app, referring to the technical documentation, and exploring code samples. For more information, developers can visit the Microsoft Teams Dev Center.
Enables developers to extend Microsoft 365 Copilot capabilities
Microsoft Teams enables developers to create powerful copilots that use AI and large language models to assist users with various tasks. By simplifying the process of creating conversational apps, Microsoft aims to make it easier for developers to enhance their users' experiences. With the right plugins and tools, you can create custom copilots to suit your organization's needs and help streamline daily tasks while improving productivity.
At Build, Microsoft unveiled plugins for Microsoft 365 Copilot, which allow developers to extend the capabilities of Microsoft 365 Copilot with their existing Teams message extensions, Power Platform connectors, and ChatGPT plugins. Additionally, developers can use the Teams Toolkit for Visual Studio Code to create their own plugins from an API endpoint. Going further, Microsoft is opening the door for developers to create bespoke intelligent, conversational app experiences for their Teams users. These "copilots" use state-of-the-art AI and large language models to assist users with complex cognitive tasks, such as crafting a sales pitch, catching up on a missed meeting, generating images for a presentation, or even planning a themed dinner party. Microsoft is dedicated to simplifying the process of creating these intelligent, conversational apps on Teams.
