083 - Making the future of work work for you with Dr. Johannes Gehrke
Dr. Johannes Gehrke is a Microsoft Technical Fellow and head of Architecture and Machine Learning for the Intelligent Communications and Conversations Cloud in Microsoft’s Experiences and Devices division. But lest you think his lofty position makes him in any way superior to you, let me tell you, he knows who works for whom, and he’ll be the first to tell you that you are his boss!
On today’s podcast, Dr. Gehrke frames the new, cloud-powered work world as a fast paced, widely-distributed workplace that demands real-time decision-making and collaboration – and explains how products like Microsoft Teams are meeting those demands – and tells us, both directly and indirectly, about the future of work, which for Microsoft, involves a pivot from an app-centric approach to a people-centric approach where, by using an AI-infused productivity suite coupled with the power of the cloud, we can essentially “hire Microsoft” to help us get our work done.
