When people think of AI, they often think of high-tech, visible products like robots or AI-powered vehicles. What many people don’t realise, shares Jordi Ribas, Microsoft’s corporate vice president of AI products, is that it also has a tangible impact on most people’s lives through products like search or Microsoft’s Office 365 productivity suite of apps.
In December 2017, Microsoft announced the availability of the Microsoft Azure Bot Service, and Microsoft Cognitive Services Language Understanding (LUIS) to help businesses augment their customer offerings by utilising software with AI baked in.
Both available on Microsoft’s Azure cloud platform, Azure Bot Service enables developers to create conversational interfaces on multiple channels, while LUIS helps developers create customised natural interactions on any platform for any type of application, which includes chatbots.
