A substantial and wide-ranging artificial intelligence program has been introduced by Microsoft, only days after announcing Cortana- a personal digital assistant for the Windows phone, much like Apple’s Siri. Yoram Yaakobie, Microsoft research executive, tells The Wall Street Journal:
User interface started with the command prompt, moved to graphics, then touch, and then gestures. It's now moving to invisible UI, where there is nothing to operate. The tech around you understands you and what you want to do. We're putting this at the forefront of our efforts.
Microsoft has reportedly invested heavy money in a so-called ‘invisible user tech’ and Jeannette Wing, Research VP of Microsoft said "we were in an AI winter, and now we're in an AI spring," Thus, referring to the new industry-wide focus on artificial intelligence.
