Microsoft doubles down on artificial intelligence in engineering reorganization

Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella

An Experiences and Devices division, led by Rajesh Jha, will concentrate on Microsoft's products, with Panos Panay put in charge of all hardware. The Microsoft's vision statement from 2017 specifically added a reference to artificial intelligence, saying its strategy is to build "best-in-class platforms and productivity services for an intelligent cloud and an intelligent edge infused with artificial intelligence". Under Satya Nadella, Microsoft had been shifting its focus to cloud and AI platforms, leveraging AI through its Garage initiative.

Kudo Tsunoda will head up Microsoft's efforts on New Experiences and Technology, while Brad Anderson will head up the company's Enterprise Mobility and Management efforts to enhance Windows Enterprise deployments and push tighter Microsoft 365 integration.

Microsoft is today releasing Windows 10 Build 17634 to the Windows Insiders opted into the Skip Ahead Ring, and the new build brings no major changes. He has been supervising the company's products including Surface, Xbox and HoloLens Mixed Reality and services such as Windows and Office. Terry Myerson, a Microsoft veteran of over two decades and most recently the head of the company's Windows and Devices group, is leaving. Windows, Office, third-party applications and devices will all fall under the team's purview.

Nadella past year reorganized the sales team after the departure of Chief Operating Officer Kevin Turner.

The new idea for 2018 is to tie everything more closely to the cloud and the fast-growing Azure unit. Or, for more discussion and troubleshooting advice, check out our Windows 10 Forums. "This is why a growth mindset culture matters", Mr. Nadella wrote. Kipman and team will work closely with Harry Shum on all things AI related. This will include what was previously a separate Windows platform team.

Microsoft is moving some of Myerson's other former lieutenants to Guthrie's Cloud & AI division.

According to Microsoft's latest advisory, the RDP update will enhance the error message that is presented when an updated client fails to connect to a server that has not been updated from April 17 2018.

We fixed an issue where typing in the Microsoft Edge URL bar immediately after opening a new tab might result in the letters appearing in an unexpected order. The feature is now limited to Microsoft's Outlook, Hotmail, Live, and Office 365 services-anyone who uses Gmail, Yahoo, or Exchange Server calendars is going to miss out.
