Chapter 42. Artificial Intelligence and ... > Features and Considerations

Features and Considerations

Should these types of computer vision and artificial intelligence systems become commercialized in the future, they will most likely have a substantial positive impact on our productivity. The challenge for businesses, however, will be to ensure end-user confidence in the privacy of information observed. Employees may well fear that this type of information could be used to report back to management on their behavior and general productivity.

Beyond the Notification Platform and the Priorities System, Microsoft Research is also working on a research project called BestCom. BestCom aims to provide a best effort for interpersonal communications and has a number of interesting implications for how we may collaborate in the future. One example is the program’s ability to allow users working on documents such as Microsoft Word to rightclick on a revision area and immediately initiate a conversation about this revision with a coworker. In this manner, they are collapsing the traditional multistepped workflow around the revision of documents and allowing users to practically grab the back of the screen and pull through the document for a coworker to see and collaborate on.
