With the ever advancing pace of innovation these days Microsoft is throwing a bone to those of us who spend all day working in email. Some days responding to emails can reduce the time used for being actually productive. To help with this Microsoft’s new AI garage project will compose emails which convey no information but satisfy the recipient.
This AI project will scan your emails and build a database of buzzwords being used in your company. Then when replying to emails these words and phrases will be sprinkled throughout the email to reassure the reader this was surely not written by a robot.
Keeping the content vague ensures no commitments are made and no timelines are agreed to. Smart phrases like “let’s circle back on that at a later date” and “let’s not get bogged down in the details” will throw off any project manager who is trying to compose a project update.
I work as an engineer in Milwaukee. Currently I work on a few different UWP apps primarily Ink Calendar.
