Overview

Spreadsheets allow users to combine data, computation, and presentation in compelling ways that allow analysis, exploration, insight, and communication. By applying machine learning and AI based on deep neural networks to spreadsheets, and combining that signal with traditional program analysis and program synthesis, we are able to extract user intent from weak signals like formatting and presentation and use this information to make spreadsheets more correct and easier to use.
