New Microsoft YouTube series explores 'great technology stories' coming out of Redmond

Microsoft is a big company, which means it has a lot of stuff going on at any given moment. Simply put, keeping up with all of the company's various ventures can be a little arduous, even for Microsoft die-hards. But that's where a new YouTube series from Microsoft itself comes in.

Called Microsoft Unboxed, the series is meant to explore "the great technology stories coming out of Microsoft." The inaugural episode, out today, tackles Microsoft's AI for Good initiative, which company CEO Satya Nadella announced last year. Specifically, hosts (and Microsoft employees) Sonia Dara and Colleen O'Brien dive into how Microsoft is using AI to improve accessibility for those with disabilities, as well as how it is applying the tech to for humanitarian action.

A new episode of Microsoft Unboxed with Dara and O'Brien will debut every Thursday at 9 a.m. PT / 12 p.m. ET, and you can follow Microsoft's official YouTube channel to tune in.
