The latest update to Word 's word processor Microsoft Office Designed to help write research papers: Meet 'Researcher' and 'Editor'
Microsoft Office I updated this week The word processor, Word, and added a feature called Researcher. The new tool allows users to search the Internet for their articles directly from within the software, without having to enter the browser.
This is actually a sidebar that filters relevant search results based on the Bing engine's knowledge graph. The graph helps determine which results are presented based on semantic contexts. Microsoft Office Predefined a group of trusted knowledge sources that appear in Researcher and can be used to write works (Wikipedia, for example, is not part of the group). When a user chooses to use one of the results - to quote from a book, for example - Researcher automatically inserts a suitable bibliographic comment.
The knowledge base is still limited in scope, but the company promises that it will soon include content from encyclopedias, history books, and scientific and health research.
The second tool that joins Word is called Editor, and is actually an advanced version of the software spell check mechanism, which is based on computational learning. Its purpose is to improve the writing style of the user. To do this, it detects errors such as inaccurate use of combinations, repeating unnecessary words or sentences. At a later stage, the language group claims, it will also provide writing suggestions of its own.
The new tools are available to all Office365 owners. The July update also includes minor improvements to Outlook and PowerPoint, which for the first time makes it possible to prepare a non-linear presentation, which allows you to navigate all the slides freely.
