Microsoft Copilot


Microsoft Copilot is an artificial intelligence (AI) chat companion for the web that can provide insights and draft content, analyze data, or create new content based on parameters you provide. Copilot is built on the latest GPT-4 and DALL-E 3 large language models, and is grounded in the Bing search index to provide responses with the most current information with verifiable citations for transparency.

When logged into Copilot using your OU ID, Copilot provides organization-wide data protection for OU institutional data. This level of data protection means OU users and organizational data are protected, prompts and responses are not saved, Microsoft has no eyes-on access, and chat data isn't used to train the underlying large language models.

Copilot is a web service available to OU faculty & staff users at, or through Copilot in the Microsoft Edge browser. Copilot is also available through the Copilot, Bing, Edge, Microsoft Start, and Microsoft 365 mobile apps.
