Hey, Cortana: Has Microsoft ruined its AI dreams by failing in the mobile space?
That's the question on the mind of some folks in our community forum, leading them to ask if not only Microsoft's AI strategy is at risk, but Windows as a whole. It's a valid concern, especially given how mobile has taken the world by storm. Everyone has a smartphone today, and many use it in place of a traditional Windows-based PC.
