Microsoft is preparing to showcase its plans for integrating AI technology into Windows, Microsoft 365 services, Surface, and other products at a special event on Thursday. This event is taking place just a few days after the former head of Windows and Surface, Panos Panay, announced his resignation publicly.

According to an internal memo obtained by The Verge, Yusuf Mehdi, who is the head of consumer marketing at Microsoft, hinted that the “special event” scheduled for Thursday will expand on the current partnership with OpenAI. He further added that this is just the initial step towards incorporating AI-powered features into Microsoft’s primary products.

Microsoft is positioning itself as a leader in integrating AI into its products and services. The company aims to provide AI-driven solutions to people and businesses globally.

According to Mehdi, Microsoft’s Surface, silicon, and devices, which now fall under Pavan Davuluri’s purview, will play a critical role in shaping Microsoft’s future client and cloud experiences. Mehdi believes that this presents an opportunity to revolutionize the way devices and systems function, and he is excited about the enthusiastic response that their vision has received from their most valuable partners.

It will be interesting to see how Microsoft explains its Windows and AI vision on Thursday, just days after Panay’s resignation. Mehdi’s memo suggests that Microsoft is committed to executing its AI goals and that the company sees AI as a key differentiator for its products and services in the future.
