Simply put, AI—short for artificial intelligence—is both a field of study and a collection of different technology. It’s modeled after the human brain—which senses, processes, and acts on information—learning and adapting over time, largely through the identification of patterns in data.

Microsoft empowers you to transform your business by uniquely combining AI innovation with a proven enterprise platform, deriving intelligence from a wide range of data relevant to your business no matter where it lives.

Microsoft is democratizing AI, making it more accessible to everyone and enabling new ways to solve some of society’s toughest challenges. We believe developers and organizations—of all skill levels—should be part of the digital transformation.

AI is infused across Microsoft products. Office removes language barriers with PowerPoint’s Translator. Skype’s bots connect you directly with the brands you love. Bing provides intelligent searches that make it easy to find what you need; and Cortana, your digital assistant, helps you remember important deadlines.

We start by putting humans at the center of everything we do. We design in a way that's inclusive for all, values diversity, and is grounded in a set of principles we don’t waver from. Our customer's trust is paramount, and something we know we need to continue to earn day after day. It’s what drives our approach to AI.

Our mission is to help every person and organization on this planet achieve more. AI is helping make this possible. The work we’re doing in accessibility, environmental advocacy, and humanitarian action underscores our commitment to have a positive global impact.
