Microsoft Research's Intelligent Memory Assistant

Dan Reed, CVP, Technology Strategy, Microsoft, talks about Intelligent Memory Assistant during the DLD Conference in Germany.

The DLD Conference in Germany: Sprechen Sie Cloud?

Here at Microsoft Research, we’ve worked on a project that illustrates this notion – the intelligent memory assistant. Think about all the times you’ve attended a conference and someone started a conversation with you, but you had no idea who he or she was. Imagine a world of inexpensive sensors that capture an image of that person and their voice, extract their features, query the cloud and then whisper in your ear, “This is Jane. You met her two years ago at the X meeting. Ask her about her son, John.” This is the kind of opportunity that a new world of interconnected devices and cloud services make possible.
