    This is the best summary I could come up with:

    One feature added to Microsoft’s AI Copilot in the Edge browser this week is the ability to generate text summaries of videos.

    But Edge Copilot’s time-saving feature is still fairly limited and only works on pre-processed videos or those with subtitles, as Mikhail Parakhin, Microsoft’s CEO of advertising and web services, explained.

    The conversation started after designer Pietro Schirano posted a screen recording of Edge Copilot summarizing a YouTube video about the GTA VI trailer.

    Last month, Google upgraded the YouTube extension for its Bard chatbot to enable it to summarize the content of a video and surface specific information from it.

    Just this week, Google announced a major Gemini update that has its own issues — the company’s editing may have misrepresented some of the AI’s capabilities in a demo, and it doesn’t always have its facts straight.

    While on a plane on Tuesday morning, the machine learning expert posted on X: “Adding ability for Edge Copilot to use information in videos - on a flight.”
