I am really interested in learning about what Microsoft is doing in the Artificial Intelligence World!

Any limitations or risks? Can it take my conversation and execute commands on a remote server? - Crowdsourcing is the practice of obtaining information or input into a task or project by enlisting the services of a large number of people, either paid or unpaid, typically via the Internet.We have seen it's application in social media for fundraising, team collaboration, organizing events. With that said, how does data catalog in Cortana utilize that concept? - Customer Churning is a common scenario in any organization either profit or non-profit.
