“Microsoft Research AI (MSR AI) brings together the breadth of talent across Microsoft Research to pursue game-changing advances in artificial intelligence. The new research and development initiative combines advances in machine learning with innovations in language and dialog, human-computer interaction, and computer vision to solve some of the toughest challenges in AI.
A key focus for this initiative is to probe the foundational principles of intelligence, including efforts to unravel the mysteries of human intellect, and use this knowledge to develop a more general, flexible artificial intelligence.
MSR AI pursues use of machine intelligence in new ways to empower people and organizations, including systems that deliver new experiences and capabilities that help people be more efficient, engaged and productive.”
