Reportedly, Microsoft is developing novel artificial intelligence (AI) functionalities for applications like Paint and Photos within the Windows 11 environment.
Within the Photos app, a purported AI feature is under development to identify individuals or objects depicted in images. This innovation seeks to enable users to copy and paste these identified elements into other contexts seamlessly.
Furthermore, the Snipping Tool is poised to incorporate optical character recognition (OCR) technology. This addition will empower Windows to recognize and extract text from screenshots efficiently.
Similarly, the Camera app is expected to embrace OCR capabilities, allowing users to interact with and select text from photographs taken using the device. Meanwhile, for the Windows 11 Paint app, Microsoft is anticipated to introduce a function that permits users to guide Paint in crafting a canvas based on specific criteria.
Notably, the AI integration in Paint purportedly draws from the same technology deployed in Bing Image Creator.
Per the report, these concepts are currently in experimental phases, reflecting Microsoft’s exploration of ways to infuse Windows with advanced AI capabilities seamlessly.
Recent weeks have witnessed Microsoft’s release of ‘Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 23516’ on the Dev Channel. This update introduced support for HDR backgrounds and refined the screen-casting process. Additionally, the company implemented a voice activation feature that triggers upon PC startup. For computers featuring presence sensors capable of attention detection, Microsoft unveiled a feature labeled “Adaptive Dimming.”
