Abstract

Find out how technology could transform the way we get things done at school, at work, and in the home over the next 5 to 10 years. Microsoft's long-term productivity vision explores how we will create and share content; collaborate across teams, organisations and networks; and how we will gain contextually relevant and anticipative insights based on preferences and intent. All these scenarios are showcasing real, emerging technologies explored with various Microsoft product and research teams as well as at Microsoft partners and across the industry.
