Focusing on AI
With AI and machine-learning dominating the tech newsfeed as of late, I thought I would highlight some of the recent conversations that I’ve hosted on the CollabTalk Podcast. As many of you are aware, I am joined by friend and fellow MVP Norm Young for a monthly discussion on all-things automation, with Microsoft’s investments in AI being mentioned on multiple episodes. For this list, I’ve included 2 episodes with Norm, as well as other voices on this important topic.
In case you were wondering, my podcast is not just about Microsoft technology — my focus is on the broader topic of collaboration, and I often bring in experts and leaders with different backgrounds. I’m always looking for new guests, so if you have suggestions, please let me know! In the meantime, enjoy these AI + ML topics!
