Microsoft's recent track record when it comes to artificial intelligence hasn't been a smooth one, to say the least. This isn't going to hold back the company, which is reportedly set to unveil a number of prototype robots during Build. Bloomberg Businessweek reports that Microsoft's bots will serve different functions. Some will be built into company services and platforms while others will aid the visually-impaired.
The company will also release templates and a set of tools so developers will be able to create their own. It's billed as a serious shift for Microsoft as a company, betting big on the future of AI. The demos will reportedly include a Domino's delivery bot.
It's going to be a tough sell for Microsoft, depending on how Build progresses, but we're excited to see just what the teams will be working on. We'll also be at Build today to bring you the latest from Microsoft's event. Be sure to remain tuned to our feeds and sit through the live blog. How do you view our future with AI?
