Build your own Copilot with Semantic Kernel

The Semantic Kernel is an open-source SDK backed by Microsoft that seamlessly integrates Large Language Models such as OpenAI and Azure OpenAI with programming languages like C#. It allows users to use natural language input within Large Language Models, such as OpenAI's GPT models, to seamlessly invoke and interact with your custom code.

Every Copilot of Microsoft consists of an orchestration that combines AI models and plugins to create a brand-new experience for users. With Semantic Kernel, you can leverage the same AI orchestration patterns that power Microsoft's Copilots in your own apps. Join this session to explore the use of the Semantic Kernel for developing your own Copilot.
