Deep Learning is powering many of the biggest breakthroughs in Artificial Intelligence in recent times, spanning areas such as speech recognition, language understanding and computer vision.
Indeed, Deep Learning is now changing the very customer experience around many Microsoft products, including HoloLens, Skype, Cortana, Office 365, Bing and more. Our Deep Learning based language translation in Skype was recently named one of the 7 greatest software innovations of the year by Popular Science, and this technology has now helped machines achieve human-level parity in conversational speech recognition.
Deep Learning is now a core part of Microsoft’s development platform offerings, an extensive toolset that includes:
- The Microsoft Cognitive Toolkit,
- The Cortana Intelligence Suite,
- Microsoft Cognitive Services APIs,
- Azure ML,
- The Bot Framework, and
- The Azure Bot Service.
The applications of this technology are truly so far reaching that the new mantra, of Deep Learning in Every Software, may well become a reality within this decade.
Through our intelligent algorithms, cloud infrastructure and partnerships with leading organizations such as NVIDIA and OpenAI, we are making Microsoft Azure the fastest and most versatile AI platform in the world, and helping developers and customers everywhere realize the holy grail of a truly intelligent cloud.
