Microsoft sets the stage for Cortana-powered smart devices

Mark Hachman | Dec. 14, 2016
Microsoft's first moves won't be in the home, it appears, but in the car.

One additional service that Microsoft showed off is what it calls “Calendar.help,” where users can email contacts and “cc:” Cortana, who will step in, via email, to actually schedule an appointment where it’s convenient for both parties. 

The goal, Shum said, is to “democratize AI,” where Microsoft will bring intelligence to as many apps as it can. For now, it needs to remind consumers that it has that intelligence in-house, and smart Cortana-powered devices will be a vivid testament to that.
