Microsoft's AI automation aims to eliminate monotonous job tasks rather than replace jobs. Businesses and developers can soon build AI-powered Copilots to perform tasks automatically, such as monitoring email, data entry, IT help desk services, and employee onboarding.

Charles Lamanna, VP at Microsoft, explained that Copilot will become proactive, handling background tasks without waiting for user queries. A preview of this capability is being tested before a public release.

Microsoft believes Copilot will reduce repetitive administrative tasks, allowing employees to focus on more meaningful work, enhancing job satisfaction instead of causing job loss.
