Microsoft has just announced that it is holding a Surface and AI event on March 21 at 12 PM ET/9 AM PT. The event in question is titled “Advancing the new era of Work with Copilot.” At this event, Microsoft is promising to unveil “the latest in scaling AI in your environment with Copilot, Windows, and Surface.”

Recently, it’s been rumored that Microsoft would be announcing the Surface Pro 10 and the Surface Laptop 6 at this event, which seems pretty likely, since their predecessors were announced in October 2022. Making it more than due for an upgrade. According to Windows Central, these new products are apparently slated to be Microsoft’s first AI PCs and will be equipped with the new Intel Core Ultra or Qualcomm Snapdragon X Elite processors. Both of these include neural processing units or NPUs, which are used to boost AI capabilities.

Microsoft’s partners, including HONOR and TECNO, have recently announced their own AI PCs, the HONOR Magic Book Pro 16 and the TECNO Megabook T16 Pro 2024 Ultra, at MWC Barcelona last month. So it’s about time that Microsoft got in on the action.

Microsoft has new AI features up its sleeve.

Microsoft hasn’t really detailed what kind of AI features we might see at this event, but many are expecting real-time live captions and translations, upscaling for games, and frame rate smoothing. The company is also reportedly working on a feature called ‘AI Explorer,’ which would give users a way to conduct searches across apps, documents, web pages, images, and chats using natural language. Basically, acting as a more advanced Copilot that can turn everything you do on your PC into a searchable memory using natural language.

It’s also expected that Microsoft could take this time to announce the next major Windows 11 update – Windows 11 version 24H2.

Of course, all of this is simply speculation until Microsoft announces these features and these products on stage on March 21.
