Microsoft Encourages Computer Manufacturers to Add New AI Application Button to Keyboards

Microsoft has issued a call to independent computer and laptop manufacturers to add a new button on keyboards for launching the artificial intelligence (AI) application, ChatGpt. This move represents the biggest change in keyboard design since the 1990s when the Windows button was added.

Microsoft is leveraging its strong market influence through licensing agreements with manufacturers such as Lenovo, Dell, and HP to pave the way for generative AI technology applications. The new button on the keyboard, alongside the “spacebar,” will be named “Copilot,” marking the beginning of intense competition among technology companies in the field of AI applications.

Microsoft highlights its close partnership with OpenAI, the manufacturer of ChatGPT. While most users today connect to the internet via their phones and use AI applications in that manner, Microsoft wants to emphasize the importance of computers and the system support they provide for the development of AI technologies.

In addition to Microsoft, other computer manufacturers have been customizing keyboards. Apple was a pioneer in this concept in the 1980s when it introduced the “Command” button (which also bore the Apple logo for a while). Google also has a dedicated search button on its Chromebook devices and has experimented with an AI-specific button to launch its voice assistant on the Pixelbook device, which has now been discontinued.

With approximately 82% market share in desktop computers, laptops, and workstations, Microsoft’s Windows operating system leads the way compared to Apple’s 9% share and Google’s 6% share.

It is expected that some laptop manufacturers will introduce new keyboard models at the upcoming CES show in Las Vegas next week.
