Microsoft is going to expand Word with artificial intelligence (AI).

This allows the word processing program to predict which words will follow on the basis of what a user has typed before.

The predicted text is shown in gray and the suggestion can be accepted by pressing the tab key.

You can also refuse.

The AI ​​continues to learn based on user behavior.

Over time, the predictions should better reflect the user's writing style.

If you don't like the predictions, you can also turn off the function.

According to Microsoft, the privacy of the user is well protected.

Company employees do not have access to the data with which the algorithm is trained.

Moreover, the data would not come outside of their company for business users.

The predictions are currently only available in English.

Earlier, Microsoft already added the predictions to the Outlook e-mail program.

Competitor Google Docs has had such predictions for some time.
