Plan and prepare for AI Builder in 2023 release wave 2
The 2023 release wave 2 plan covers all new functionalities planned to be delivered to market from October 2023 to March 2024. In this article, you'll find the product overview and what's new and planned for AI Builder.
AI Builder allows citizen developers to use, customize, and govern AI models across their organization with a no-code configuration engine. By using AI models, you can build more powerful applications and automate workflows that previously required human intervention–reducing errors and saving time in the process. Azure AI backs the capabilities in AI Builder, which allows you to process documents, text, images, and generate predictions from structured data. If you have in-house AI models built by data scientists, you can import them into AI Builder to make them accessible for their citizen makers in Power Platform.
A key point of focus is facilitating document and email processing with integrated solutions powered by GPT. AI Builder already integrates with GPT to allow you to automate content extraction, text classification, and content generation. You're provided tools like a human validation station to simplify how you can review and edit content that's processed and generated by AI. We've expanded the breadth of prebuilt scenarios for document processing that are supported by AI by integrating new pre-trained model capabilities for contract processing, tax form processing, document classification, document translation, and personally identifiable information. GPT is enabled for you to use for document processing and email processing scenarios with easily accessible off-the-shelf solutions. In terms of governance and administration, you can move trainable models across environments for added flexibility in deploying models across the enterprise. In addition, we support model versioning so that you can improve model performance in an iterative approach.

Build intelligent solutions with AI capabilities
This area covers all AI model capabilities that are newly available to makers to build more intelligent solutions with AI. It includes expanding the breadth of AI capabilities and the integration surfaces across Microsoft where AI Builder is available.
Extend Copilot capabilities with AI
Extend Copilot capabilities with AI-powered actions authored in natural language.
Governance and administration
Governance and administration are key themes that enable you to deploy AI solutions at scale in the enterprise. ModelOps, or model operations, typically cover the governance and application lifecycle management (ALM) of AI models.
GPT prompt builder
Prompt builder is AI Builder's new interface that allows you to build, test, and deploy GPT prompts. The new interface allows you to create custom prompts that can be used across platform components and copilots.
