Microsoft has been rolling out some interesting updates and features lately. In one of our earlier articles, we covered about the recent research "Soundscape" which the company said was being developed for the Visually challenged users. The Soundscape provides information about a user's surroundings using synthesized binaural audio which then creates the effect of a 3D sound. The Soundscape app then uses the 3D audio cues to enrich ambient awareness and also provide a new way for the visually impaired users to relate to their surrounding environment.

Also in earlier events, Microsoft and Talview collaborated to introduce the application of artificial intelligence and Machine Learning in recruitment, with a Talent Assistant Chatbot. The Chatbot is built on Microsoft's Bot Framework. The key benefits of signing-up with Talview are that the bot allows for a major reduction in man-hours spent in the recruitment funnel. Moreover, it identifies and fast-tracks only the best candidates to the next phase of the recruitment process. The bot also helps create an impact on employer marketing and messaging which assists in connecting the candidate to a company's brand immediately. Read the complete story here.
