Vision on Augmented Reality
With Microsoft’s HoloLens Augmented Reality glasses, users are no longer bound to their screens and keyboards. They can interact with projected holograms in a physical environment in real time. At its most basic level, HoloLens allows people to view data as part of their natural surroundings; for example, you could be examining a piece of property in 3D at a construction site or reviewing complex engine schematics while working on an assembly line.

Artificial intelligence is a key part of Microsoft’s strategy for its future, and it’s evident in every aspect of Satya Nadella’s vision for technology. He sees AI being implemented into everything from how we use smart home devices to managing data storage in our office spaces.
Building the AI Cloud for All
Today, there are more than 25 million developers building applications on top of Microsoft’s cloud computing platforms. Their ambitions are limitless—and I want to make sure we have one place where they can build, deploy and run their solutions at any scale. To do that, we’re adding new capabilities to Azure—to run deep learning workloads at scale with Azure Batch AI; and to help customers unlock insights faster with visual intelligence through Project Brainwave.
Empowering Developers to Build the Intelligent Cloud
I’m excited to announce that Windows and Azure are becoming a unified platform, with one developer platform and one cloud app model. We will accelerate innovation, creating a richer and more seamless experience spanning from intelligent edge to intelligent cloud. Our product, service, and business models are becoming more simple and easy to use. Satya Nadella Microscoft CEO: The Future of Technology

As AI finds its way into our homes, thanks to developments in home automation systems, smart assistants and robots are set to become more commonplace than ever before. And while they may not match human intelligence just yet, they’re certainly moving in that direction.
