Privacy, security, and compliance are prioritized in Microsoft Teams

Now more than ever, people need to know their virtual conversations are private and secure. Microsoft is committed to giving users transparency over the collection, use, and distribution of their data. No tracking for participant attention or multitasking during Teams meetings. No unfettered government access to data, and no ads linked to data. Microsoft even offers transparency reports on the Transparency Hub, detailing how it responded to third-party requests for data. "We are committed to providing products, information, and controls that you let choose how your data is collected and used," stated President and Chief Legal Officer Brad Smith. Knowing that your organization can experience enterprise-grade communication and collaboration while at the same time be protected, secure, and compliant—that allows you do your work with confidence.

How AI is finding patterns and anomalies in your data

From autonomous vehicles, predictive analytics applications, and facial recognition, to chatbots, virtual assistants, cognitive automation, and fraud detection, the use cases for AI span dozens of industries. Regardless of the AI application, though, these use cases all have a common aspect. After implementing thousands of AI projects, experts have come to realize that despite all of the diversity in applications, AI use cases fall into one or more of seven common patterns.
