How do you see AI being used to address broader societal issues?
Well, let me say how excited we are about AI, we see it impacting so many of our customers in every industry sector you can imagine, from commercial to public sector. Companies big and small are seeing the opportunity to use AI to cut cost out of their business, drive the productivity of their people and come up with new revenue streams and business models.
The Economic Opportunity around AI is really exciting but the other side of it is the societal benefits that we see. We have a big program at Microsoft called ‘AI for Good’ which has lots of different aspects to it. We talk about AI for sustainability, AI for earth - we see lots of potential there. We see AI for humanitarian aid. You know, we’re putting computer vision cameras powered by AI on drones and we're sending them into disaster relief areas right at the edge and mapping routes to people in need of aid for example, which is I think a great example of AI for humanitarian aid.
