  • The Redmond-based tech giant plans to heavily enhance its products with AI.
  • These AI features would allow many of the Microsoft products, including Windows 12, to perceive you and analyze when you use them.
  • While many of us would be reticent with the idea, Copilot’s coming to Windows 11 will ease the process of getting used to AI.

It seems that Microsoft is seriously considering using AI to enhance its future products, including Windows 12, to the point that these products are capable of perceiving the user and the user’s environment.

In a bid to bring new AI experiences to the market, Microsoft listed a job on its careers platform looking for a software engineer for its Applied Sciences Group department. Now, if you’re looking for an exciting job, you should consider applying.

But you should know that you’ll test AI algorithms on future Microsoft operating systems. And not any kind of algorithms, but the ones that validate the quality of various audio and camera AI effects.

Interestingly enough, earlier this summer Microsoft released an AI model called Project Rumi. Developed by an internal team at Microsoft Research, Project Rumi proved to be capable of perceiving a user’s attitude when interacting with them, by using the device’s peripheral tools, such as the camera and the microphone, to capture the user’s physical expressions.

Based on those expressions, Project Rumi would respond to the user accordingly, in real time. If you were angry, Rumi would respond to you with an angry tone. If you seemed happy, Rumi would be cheerful when responding to you.

The release of the model proves that Microsoft focuses on AI development that is closely tied to AI-human interaction. Then, it seemed that Project Rumi was just another AI breakthrough, but now, Microsoft might actually use the technology to greatly enhance its future products, including Windows 12.

Windows 12 will make use of AI development to come alive, at least, digitally

While the headline would come off as an exaggeration, Microsoft plans for Windows 12 to be able to perceive everything when it comes to its users.

The Microsoft Applied Sciences Group incubates disruptive technologies for Microsoft’s next-gen Windows and Device products and is working on several exciting projects that will shape how computers and other devices perceive the user and the user’s environment.


The job description calls for a software engineer who will be contributing to the quality of new stuff to make sure it is ready to delight the customers. Elsewhere, on the job description, the fact that the software engineer is required to test various video and audio AI effects, leads us to believe that Microsoft will indeed incorporate the Project Rumi AI developments in Windows 12.

What would it look like?

Well, by the sound of it, Windows 12 will make use of all possible tools on your device to analyze, interpret, and respond according to your moods.

The Copilot on this operating system would be able to offer you a personal, if not, intimate experience because it would be trained to behave in regards to your personality.

Would it be possible?

Yes. It would be. If you’ve been following our AI coverage, you know already that a lot of tech giants, including Microsoft, are focusing hard on AI development.

We have LongMem, which offers a gigantic context length. There is Kosmos 2, which is able to analyze visual space. Llama 2 is the first step to reach AGI, something that would radically change our interaction with AI. Then there is Project Rumi, as well. All of these models, and so many more, are the result of Microsoft AI 12 ai development

It’s perfectly clear that Microsoft will implement these technologies into Windows 12. Or the future Windows iterations, for that matter. But it’s only a matter of time.

The question remains: Are we ready for this kind of AI-enhanced Windows? Well, it depends on each of us. But Microsoft is getting us ready for it.

Windows 11 is in a good condition right now. The operating system will reach its 23H2 release later this month. The update will finally bring Windows Copilot to the general public. This will be the first time a native AI tool is coming to Windows. But it will also be the first time many of the Windows users will get to experience AI firsthand.

The experience will most surely pave the way for other AI experiences coming to Windows.

What’s your take on this? Would you use a Windows that is able to “perceive” you?
