Bill Gates opened his talk at the Microsoft Research Faculty Summit today by saying we’ve entered a “golden age of computing,” as connectivity, data and processing power open up new opportunities to solve some of the world’s biggest problems. Which paves the way, of course, for the return of Microsoft Bob. OK, not really, but in response to one question, the Microsoft chairman did refer to the company’s ill-fated virtual Windows assistant, circa 1995, as an early example of a ”personal agent” helping lead us through our daily tasks.
It looks like you're trying to stay relevant in the PC industry. Would you like help?
