In November, Microsoft announced the availability for download of Office Remote, the product of collaboration between Microsoft Research and the Microsoft Office engineering team that enables a number of useful features for those delivering business presentations.Office Remote transforms a Windows Phone 8 device into a presentation-management tool. Users can use it to interact with Office on their PCs, enabling them to control Word, Excel, and PowerPoint from across a room. Presenters are then free to walk freely while talking. They can start PowerPoint, advance slides, see speaker notes, and deploy an on-screen laser pointer. They also can navigate between Excel worksheets and graphs or scroll quickly through a Word document or jump to specific sections within the doc.The response to these features has been gratifying—just ask Bert Van Hoof, particularly now that an updated version of Office Remote has become available in the Windows Phone Store.
Most of us can only dream of having the perfect personal assistant, one who is always there when needed, anticipating every request and unobtrusively organizing our lives. Cortana, the new digital personal assistant that comes with Windows Phone 8.1, brings users closer to that dream.
For Larry Heck, a distinguished engineer in Microsoft Research, Cortana will continue to evolve in an even more natural way. Already, Cortana goes beyond performing voice-activated commands. It continually learns about its user and becomes more personalized, with the goal of proactively carrying out the right tasks at the right time. If its user asks about outside temperatures every afternoon before leaving the office, Cortana will learn to offer that information without being asked.
In this edition of Weekend Reading, we’ve got stories on creating a data culture, an Internet of Things service built on Microsoft Azure and Microsoft Research’s Silicon Valley TechFair.
Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, along with Chief Operating Officer Kevin Turner and Data Platform Group Corporate Vice President Quentin Clark, spoke Tuesday about creating a world in which devices and services anticipate and understand our needs. Building out a comprehensive platform that enables ambient intelligence is an initiative that Microsoft is uniquely qualified to undertake. The platform will include services such as: SQL Server, BI, Machine Learning, Bing and Microsoft Azure, Nadella explains. Creating a “data culture” is about deploying technology and changing the culture within organizations, empowering people to do great things.
