Microsoft AI

At Microsoft, our mission is to empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more. Microsoft AI takes a very people-centric approach. It’s all about amplifying human ingenuity, our creativity, and imagination, with intelligent technology. Our AI is built on breakthrough advances in AI research and the power of Cloud, making innovation faster and more accessible.


We innovate and accelerate with powerful tools and services that bring AI to every developer. With the flexible Azure platform and a wide portfolio of AI productivity tools, you can build the next generation of smart applications where your data lives, in the intelligent cloud, on-premises, and on the intelligent edge. You can achieve more with the comprehensive set of flexible and trusted AI services - from pre-built APIs, such as Cognitive Services and Conversational AI with Bot tools, to building custom models with Azure Machine Learning for any scenario. 


The Azure AI platform also features enterprise-grade AI infrastructure, that runs AI workloads anywhere at scale. Modern AI tools designed for developers and data scientists help you create AI solutions easily, with maximum productivity.
