Never Fly Solo: AI Copilot for Office Productivity in the Era of Chat GPT-4

GPT-4 promises to address long-standing productivity challenges, such as retaining and applying information in writing, business, and daily life. By providing seamless access to ideas, quotes, and memories without any organization, tagging, or linking, AI Copilots like GPT-4 can revolutionize how we work.

Think about it, the following advancements in GPT-4 are transforming the way we approach productivity:

  • GPT-4 has an 8x larger context window, overcoming a major limitation of the previous version of ChatGPT.

  • Microsoft is integrating AI Copilots into Office 365 products like Microsoft Teams Premium, AMA capabilities in Microsoft Viva, and Microsoft Loop. This allows users to autocomplete memos, emails, and spreadsheets by aggregating notes, documents, and meetings.

  • Despite impressive demonstrations from Park View, further refinement is needed before Google's version of Copilots is truly practical for everyday use.

With these facts in mind, let's explore the potential solutions provided by AI tools like ChatGPT 4 and Microsoft 365 Copilot and the current feasibility of incorporating such technology into our daily lives.

Has AI Killed Reading?

Retaining and summarizing information from reading can be challenging. Various strategies, such as highlights, Zettelkastens, Anki cards, and book notes, have been employed with varying degrees of success. These methods can be helpful but are often labor-intensive and not consistently effective.

With the latest update, ChatGPT 4 can help users stay immersed in the ideas and language of writers, thinkers, and artists. This can be achieved by combining ChatGPT with apps like Apple Notes, resulting in an experience akin to Reflect—an ultra-fast notes app with a built-in AI assistant. Reflect can organize notes, enhance writing, and increase productivity. It also uses Whisper from OpenAI to transcribe voice notes with near-human accuracy, allowing users to convert ramblings into article outlines.

Microsoft 365 Copilot: Are Productivity Apps Over?

AI assistance eases the burden of retaining information. GPT-4 and Microsoft 365 Copilot can outperform memory palace techniques and even genius-level IQs by accessing users' entire reading history to assist with completing sentences and recalling information.

These AI copilots can work with any app and device, making it simple to save and retrieve information. They can help locate relevant quotes, sharpen arguments, or even change perspectives on a topic.

Furthermore, AI copilots can make mental models more practical and actionable, guiding users in decision-making and problem-solving processes.

An essential factor is that the ideal AI copilot references your books and notes, ensuring that your intellectual history is a key component of the AI copilot's performance.

Will AI Consume Everything?

Although AI assistance tools like GPT-4 and Microsoft 365 Copilot show great potential, several limitations must be addressed before they become widely adopted:

  • Context window limitations: GPT-4's context window is already 8x larger than GPT-3's, but further improvements are needed. Privacy and IP concerns: Users may be hesitant to upload personal information to AI models. Solutions might include running AI natively on devices instead of relying on cloud APIs.

  • Developing a user-friendly experience: Striking the right balance between helpful and intrusive AI assistance is crucial, as demonstrated by GitHub Copilot's success in programming.

  • Despite these challenges, the rapid advancements in AI technology and increasing demand for AI copilots suggest that such tools will soon become an integral part of our productivity toolkit.

A Glimpse into the Future

Future of AI Copilot at work

Physical books and digital libraries represent our intellectual journeys. Currently, these repositories of knowledge remain static and locked away. AI tools such as Chat GPT-4 and Microsoft 365 Copilot have the potential to breathe life into these collections and unlock their full potential.

Imagine a world where AI seamlessly integrates with Office 365 tools like Microsoft Teams Premium, AMA capabilities in Microsoft Viva, and Microsoft Loop, providing users with an unparalleled productivity experience. Whether it's helping you access the perfect quote from a book you read a decade ago or offering counterarguments to enhance your writing, AI copilots will reshape the way we work.

Microsoft Copilot, GitHub Copilot, and RATH Copilot (opens in a new tab) for Automated Data Analysis, are just a few examples of AI-powered tools that will transform the way we complete tasks, even how we live on a daily basis.


As AI copilots become more refined and accessible, they will unlock the true potential of our intellectual history, making it easier than ever to participate in the intellectual and emotional evolution of humanity. The future of AI-enhanced productivity is on the horizon, and it promises to change the way we work, learn, and grow.
