You're probably reading the title and laughing, it's a funny idea but it's something I believe is possible, that they attempt to create something of the same lines. Recently, Microsoft hit a lot of the news with reports of their nice spying. Yup, every 5-10 minutes every key you press is sent to their servers. When you enable a webcam, ~50kb of information is sent to their servers. If you're using a microphone, data is sent to their servers. Browser information, etc is also sent. There is more too. * numbers may not be accurate above. It's off memory. Check articles on this for all the things they get and how often So, some people guessed a lot of this information was to improve a user's use of Cortana and other services. They suggested to remove Cortana to disable this. Guess what? Microsoft seems to have rolled out an update for Windows 7 and 8 that collects the same data. Luckily with those Windows versions you can refuse updates, but how practical is that? Since when do Windows 7 and 8 have Cortana? So it could be to improve Windows 10 experience for all users using data from 7, 8 and 10. Yeah, like they're going to risk bad publicity, all the space on their servers and also note that Windows 10 is a free upgrade just to improve user experience. Windows 10 was a free upgrade. The development that went into it clearly isn't paid back like this. Who really believed it was to improve their brand image? It wasn't even that poor. Yet, some sort of robot or AI technology would be revolutionary. I mean, it'd clearly pay back all their cost and profit them heavily. Especially if the price point was accessible. And it's not a reach for what we've been seeing recently, we've got robots to clean the house automatically with sensors not to hit furnature. Google Glasses, that new Hololens thing, there are lots of advanced technologies coming out. They can use this data to really build an AI that interacts with humans. Perhaps not yet, they'd need to gather a lot of data, but sometime in the future personally I'm expecting an announcement of this. It's the best use for this data, and they haven't even given a reason to all of the famous newspapers that have contacted them for comment so. Thoughts or am I nuts? Microsoft mentioned back in 2006 that robots were the future, and they would surely take a part in their development and evolution. I seriously think Microsoft has decided that 2015 is the time to start. Before I thought it was a possibility but this is *definitely* something they're doing.
