Overview

Automation, digital platforms, and AI are changing the fundamental nature of work. Many activities that we do today have the potential to be automated, but there is also huge potential to dramatically enhance individual productivity. The cloud plays a key role here. Beyond multi-tenancy, elasticity, and unlimited resources, the cloud allows us to learn and to make our users more successful through data. In this session, we provide several examples of how we work across research and product groups empowering our users through data and lay out several challenges that we hope to solve together with the academic community.
