Keep an eye on Microsoft, and in particular, how they integrate machine learning into Office. I’ve got a feeling we’re going to see some really interesting advances on this front in the next few years.

This is an interesting quote from CEO, Satya Nadella:

Calling AI “the third run time”, Nadella said, “If the operating system was the first run time, the second run time you could say was the browser, and the third run time can actually be the agent. Because in some sense, the agent knows you, your work context, and knows the work. And that’s how we are building Cortana. We are giving it a really natural language understanding.”

Microsoft’s Focus on AI

Satya Nadella’s take on Cortana and the impact of artificial intelligence in consumers is really interesting and pretty much spot on. Agents will be transformational. For further context on the subject read this: https://goo.gl/aYUujU.
