Job Description

About Microsoft AI & Research Org:

AI & Research is a new group formed at Microsoft with a mission to accelerate innovations in AI, and to enable Microsoft to create truly intelligent systems and products for our customers. When Bing was launched back in June 2009, we changed search forever and created a foundational technology for AI. Bings market share has grown incredibly since the launch, and serves over a third of the U.S. queries, and powers partners like Amazon, Apple, AOL and Yahoo for search.

Our investments in ML and AI technologies in Bing have been heavily leveraged throughout the company. Azure takes advantage of various technologies & platforms built in Bing.

Cortana Microsofts personal digital assistant, who has answered 12 billion questions for 130 million users, leverages Bing technologies to power those answers. Watch this Satya's Ignite keynote on how were democratizing AI using Cortana.
