Microsoft Cortana is bound to make all the necessary efforts to exceed its rivals. Cortana plans to surpass the performance of the Google Assistant and Siri. This company was founded in 1975 by Paul Allen and Bill Gates. Their primary purpose was to become an AI powerhouse. Most of the modification regarding Microsoft Office was connected to productivity automation.
Thus, any user can find out whether he or she spends too much for the processing of emails in Outlook by using Microsoft MyAnalytics or they can use Word’s Editor feature to improve their writing. Now, Microsoft Cortana has announced preparing for a big boost. Recently, Microsoft had revealed the Cortana Devices SDK bound to permit developers to produce a new hardware which will be equipped with AI.
Among the first products produced, there will be a speaker similar to Amazon Echo and Google Home. Any consumer can use the device to ask about the weather, to dictate a document or to set reminders. Another revolutionary idea which is bound to fulfill consists in the integration of Knowmail’s email automation engine with Cortana.
They did not share all their details with the public yet, but Cortana will soon be able to flag urgent messages reading it to them to the user. This new idea implemented could help users save time processing emails, as long as the machine learning is functioning. For example, one has the chance to skip browsing through messages every morning, asking Cortana to do that instead.
This incredible machine will select the most relevant messages, read the one from your kids, your boss, and your new customers, skip, let’s say, the ones with sales and advertising. Developers hope that they will be able to implement a system which will help Cortana figure out how to send responses to non-urgent emails.
Hopefully, someday in the future, Cortana together with a company like Knowmail will reach to become the artificial intelligence engine that will go throughout messages so we can concentrate on more important activities, like browsing through websites which present significant interest for us. What is more, Skype and Microsoft Translator Live will also transform into more AI-dependent tools.
Now, the advanced technology made it possible for us to, for example, call someone from Austria through using Skype and have the bot translate in an instant everything the person says. This is so amazing it sounds like science fiction.
