Microsoft working to change the way you store and experience 'digital memories'

Microsoft wants to change the way to record, store and experience what it's calling "digital memories," according to new job listings posted by the company. The job listings make mention of a new studio at Microsoft called Evoke (via WalkingCat on Twitter), which may be a part of the Windows Apps Studio team, according to ZDNet.

From one of the job listings:

Evoke is a new studio within Microsoft creating a portfolio of experiences that will forever change the way people create, recall, relive, and retell their digital memories. Our team has a strong heritage of innovation and storytelling on platforms that includes Windows, Kinect, and HoloLens. We are applying that expertise to change the future of digital memories and prove that nothing is impossible.

The listing goes on to mention that the service will leverage machine learning algorithms and computer vision "over billions of digital assets to create a new realm of possibilities, and transform how people tell their stories and preserve their memories through photos and videos." Finally, it looks as though the team will also work closely with the Microsoft Research and OneDrive teams while working on the new digital memories service.
