Surface and AI.

AI adoption is no longer an emerging trend. Data and analytics decision-makers are already building AI technologies and 74% are seeing a positive impact in their organisations. It’s no longer about whether to adopt AI - it’s about preparing for its impact. Microsoft is committed to building AI that amplifies human ingenuity, delivers transformational experiences, and safeguards your business and data.

Surface is designed by Microsoft and brings software and hardware together – from device to cloud – to build an end-to-end AI experience that supports employees, IT, and business1. Work traditionally done on the CPU or the cloud is offloaded to the NPU, enhancing performance for heavy workloads and increasing endpoint efficiency. Better device security ensures your data stays with you, locally. Local processing reduces latency so you can deliver greater impact, faster.

(AI is) deeply relevant to how work gets done. Leaders see a long tail of potential benefits from AI, nearly half of which accrue to internal processes for how work gets done or to the workforce itself.2

More Than Cloud Computing.

AI analytics and modeling require vast amounts of data, which are best suited for cloud, but performing some workloads at the device level can deliver more efficient processing, or inferencing, by being offloaded to the device. Efficiencies
could be applied to:
Visual inferencing: AI applied directly to the camera feed
Audio inferencing: AI applied to audio inputs
Live transcription: AI applied to language processing

Modern devices are being engineered with specialised processors to support executing those models – and others - locally, in real time. Microsoft and Surface are uniquely positioned to deliver cloud and client computing with AI, on select devices3, integrated into every aspect of the user experience.

Surface and the AI Benefits.

Information Technology.

Information processed through AI takes advantage of chip-to-cloud security, enabling organisations to maintain
privacy and control of their data.

Get AI-ready.

Microsoft Copilot is an AI assistant that boosts productivity and efficiency. It works with popular Microsoft apps and services like Windows 11 Pro and Microsoft 365. Copilot helps teams find information, provides better insights, creates content more easily, and improves workflows. Because it runs in the cloud, it offers fast performance and always has the latest AI updates.

The new Surface devices are perfect for showing off Microsoft’s amazing AI features. These devices lead the way in performance and processor technology, making them the best choice for modern AI applications. With Copilot+ PCs, organisations now have advanced AI tools at their fingertips. A recent study shows that employees can save over 10 hours a month by using AI for routine tasks like finding content. This means more time for important work.
