CoPilot and AI in Microsoft Fabric

Microsoft-Copilot-Logo


There’s already a great deal of AI-based features in Fabric, and the rate new features are being added we should expect much more before long.   The features already in place are well thought out and implemented and contribute a great deal towards individual productivity.

One feature which has been in Power BI for a couple of years is anomaly detection.  Where this is enabled for a report, any significant anomalies in the data are highlighted in the visuals.  And when a report viewer interacts with those highlights the report runs an AI-based analysis on the data, identifies and presents causes for the anomaly.  It also presents back the explanation for the anomaly in a natural language sentence.
