Microsoft Build 2023 unveils new generative AI features disrupting traditional bot development and enhancing conversational experiences with Power Virtual Agent

 
At Microsoft Build 2023, Microsoft announced new generative AI features for its Power Virtual Agents, aiming to disrupt traditional bot development and transform conversational experiences. Key features include Answers may originate from a variety of information sources, including documents, internal SharePoint sites, external websites, or a combination of these. Customize the bot's responses and retrieve information from the backend system, then enter that data into the newly included generative replies node for dialogues using custom data.
  1. Generative Actions capabilities: In limited preview, this feature allows bots to call the right APIs intelligently when a user request requires a particular action.

  2. Generative Answers capabilities: Now in public preview, this tool enables bots to provide a rich, multi-turn chat experience by drawing on knowledge sources like websites, SharePoint, or documents.

  3. Copilot in Power Virtual Agents: This is now generally available, providing an advanced authoring canvas for both professional developers and low-code users. It allows for easy creation of multi-turn dialogs.

  4. Unified bot building canvas: This platform, now generally available, streamlines bot construction.

  5. Azure custom language model integration: Now in public preview, this integration enables more customized natural language models.

  6. Instant generative bots for Microsoft Power Pages: These bots, in public preview, promise a new era of generative bot building.

These enhancements aim to save time for bot authors, eliminating the need to anticipate every user request or action, and to create individual dialogues for each. Instead, the system can be pointed to the correct knowledge sources and API connectors. Generative AI features thus represent a significant transformation in bot building with Power Virtual Agents.
