If you’re handed a note that asks you to draw a picture of a bird with a yellow body, black wings and a short beak, chances are you’ll start with a rough outline of a bird, then glance back at the note, see the yellow part and reach for a yellow pen to fill in the body, read the note again and reach for a black pen to draw the wings and, after a final check, shorten the beak and define it with a reflective glint. Then, for good measure, you might sketch a tree branch where the bird rests.

AI wave rolls through Microsoft’s language translation technologies

Used with Permission from Microsoft AI Blog: An Article By, John Roach

A fresh wave of artificial intelligence rolling through Microsoft’s language translation technologies is bringing more accurate speech recognition to more of the world’s languages and higher quality machine-powered translations to all 60 languages supported by Microsoft’s translation technologies.

The advances were announced at Microsoft Tech Summit Sydney in Australia on November 16th.

“We’ve got a complex machine, and we’re innovating on all fronts,” said Olivier Fontana, the director of product strategy for Microsoft Translator, a platform for text and speech translation services. As the wave spreads, he added, these machine translation tools are allowing more people to grow businesses, build relationships and experience different cultures.

Tracking Microsoft and the Future of Computing

An Article By, David Tan, Chief Technology Officer 

For all the change that has happened in the tech industry in the last few years, there is no denying that Microsoft is still one of the industry leaders and a company that helps set the direction of computing for the broad majority of people and businesses.  In the 3 years since Satya Nadella has taken over as CEO the company has become much more innovative and creative, and returned to its roots as a true pioneer.  That’s why I always think it’s worthwhile to check in on them from time to time and see what some of the products or services they are delivering can tell us about the direction we are headed.  I think some of the things I’ve seen recently speak volumes and are worth talking about. read more

The Power of Machine Learning

An Article By, David Tan, Chief Technology Officer

If you’ve read any articles or blogs that I’ve written, you’ve probably figured out what a huge fan I am of technology.  From cool new toys and gadgets to software and systems that change the way we live and work, the ever-changing landscape of this industry keeps me energized every day.  Usually when I write about interesting new technology, I’m relating it to things you can do in your business.  Ways to increase profits or productivity, or even new services you can start offering your customers.  This is going to be a little different.  Today I want to talk about how the advances in technology can benefit us in our lives on a daily basis. read more

Why Seeing Double Is A Good Thing

An Article By, David Tan, Chief Technology Officer

Traditionally we like to write an article at the beginning of the year about upcoming trends and technologies that we expect to see emerge in the next 12 months. When I started to think about and do that this week, I realized that I had covered most of the topics that were high on my radar in the last few newsletters. I think I’m just so excited about the emerging trends in technology that I find myself shouting about it from the rooftops whenever I can get someone to listen! So rather than revamp some of the same ideas, I’m going to talk a bit about something I’ve never mentioned, that in many ways brings it all together. read more
