Productivity is the cornerstone of the experiences and devices that Microsoft builds. And yet the nature of productivity is fundamentally changing with the emergence of the intelligent cloud and edge, increasing use of digital media, and an explosion of devices. No longer is it enough for the tools we build to merely help people be faster, more efficient, and better organized. Our tools must now help people approach problems in new ways. The future of productivity is collaborative, intelligent, and deeply embedded in the world around us. This talk will explore the research breakthroughs necessary to bring this expansive view of productivity to life.
