Microsoft’s ‘Ideas in Word’ uses artificial intelligence to suggest politically correct terminology in your writing
We all know and love spell check. But now, Microsoft will soon preview a version of Word that will use artificial intelligence to make your writing not just grammatically correct, but politically correct.
Although Microsoft doesn’t call it a “politcally correctness check,” it seems like that is exactly what it is.
The new technology, “Ideas In Word,” is meant to boost the use of “inclusive language” in Word.
“Beginning this fall, people working in Word Online who are in search of inspiration and insights on how to make their document better will be able to receive intelligent suggestions with Ideas – a feature that is already making people more productive in PowerPoint and Excel,” explained John Roach in Microsoft’s AI blog this week.
According to Microsoft, Ideas in Word will offer “advice on more concise and inclusive language” in addition to familiar fixes for spelling and grammatical errors.”
