How Office 365 is Safely Enabling the Integration of Intelligent Features into Productivity Apps

Machine learning is changing the world. Virtual Assistants, natural language translation, and transcription are new categories of applications that are only possible because of ML. it is becoming pervasive across industries and applications, and is ultimately part of every engineer’s toolkit for turning data into value.

While ML is changing the world it brings with it a host of challenges around data protection, data privacy, data retention and deletion, geodata residency restrictions, fair use of data, and many others. These challenges are of particular importance to Office 365 which processes, on behalf of the users and organizations it hosts, a large collection of highly sensitive and valuable business and personal data. Protecting that data and assuring it is used only in accordance with laws, regulations, and the policies and wishes of the users and organization that own the data is of paramount importance.

During this talk, we will give an overview on some of the ways Office O365 enables intelligent features to be built while providing that protection and that assurance, which is part of continuously re-earning the trust of the organizations and users whose data we process.
