Automated Intelligence in Your Daily Life with Machine Learning


September 12, 2012


Over the last decade, technical and infrastructural developments have created a nurturing environment for developing applications of machine learning and reasoning—and for harnessing automated intelligence to assist people in the course of their daily lives. Microsoft researchers continue to push the state of the art in applying machine intelligence to the daily lives of people through research in algorithms and technologies to discover knowledge from large-scale data. By building software that automatically learns from data, our goal is to enable applications to behave more intelligently and enable users to become more productive.
