At Microsoft's Everyday AI event Harry Shum, Executive vice president of Microsoft's Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Research group, announced that Cortanafeatures would be coming to Microsoft Launcher, raising the prospect of the stand-alone app going away. New features include rich insights for Excel, an Acryonyms feature for Word, and touches of Cortana for the Outlook app on iOS.
Microsoft has bunged a load of AI-powered features into its software - from Azure and Office 365 to Bing and Cortana.
The updates for Microsoft's search engine will allow it to make better use of machine learning, object recognition and various other AI techniques.
As an example, Bing will now provide more than one reputable source to validate its answers so that users can have more confidence in their authenticity.
Microsoft is continuing to infuse more AI smarts into its Bing web search, Cortana digital assistant and Office 365 services.
"If you use Bing or Google nowadays you recognize that more and more often you'll see direct answers on the top of search result pages", said, who leads Microsoft's 8,000-person research and AI division. For instance when users search for "Why won't my water boil?" they'll get expert comments made on Reddit from a chemist and a chef.
Another AI feature hitting Office 365 is a new tool called Acronyms in Microsoft Word.
Intelligent Image Search is a pretty interesting evolution, allowing users to dive into searches so that you cannot only find a photo of a celebrity but you can find more images of a piece of jewelry they are wearing.
For Office 365 users, Microsoft is launching a preview of Insights in Excel, which can automatically seek out and highlight patterns that it detects. Acronyms will scan through documents and emails and provide definitions for terms that have previously been defined. This brings the power of Cortana's AI to the experience, helping Outlook send notifications, directions, and more based on current location, real-time traffic, and more. The demo showed the AI helper not only sorting emails, but summarizing the most important ones.
The three new features build on what Microsoft has already introduced this month, including the Whiteboard app for Windows 10.
