00:42 — The “Write About” feature can be found in Microsoft Word, by opening up a new Word Document and navigating to the Copilot button. Once clicked, a side panel opens up with a prompt that says “Write About.” In his example, Aaron asked Copilot to “Write about the difference between human intelligence and artificial intelligence.”

01:54 — Aaron quickly summarizes Copilot’s output, which suggests that AI is meant to “mimic” human intelligence and that AI has more limitations compared to human intelligence.

02:36 — Finally, Aaron shares that he likes this feature because it enables Copilot to write about a “subtopic” within the main topic of a document.

“From there, I can then ask Copilot to reword, rephrase, or ask another question about the response that it had already output… I like that because then you can continually learn, refine, create new content, all based on the central theme of what’s in the Word document originally.”
