How Storytelling Helps Data-driven Teams Succeed
(MIT Sloan School of Management) Winning leaders know that data alone isn’t enough. It’s the art of storytelling that drives sustained performance. In the spring of 2014, the Golden State Warriors hired Steve Kerr as their head coach. Despite a star-studded roster, they hadn’t won an NBA championship in 40 years. Kerr changed the system, combining talent with authentic storytelling. The result? An era of league domination!

SAMMO: A general-purpose framework for prompt optimization
(Microsoft Research)
Large language models (LLMs) have revolutionized various tasks, but prompt engineering remains a challenge. Enter SAMMO: an open-source tool that streamlines prompt optimization, especially for complex structures like Retrieval Augmented Generation (RAG).

The Power of Prompting
(Microsoft Research) Microsoft discusses Prompting strategies that demonstrates how the generalist GPT-4 model can perform as a specialist on medical challenge problem benchmarks. The study shows GPT-4’s ability to outperform a leading model that was fine-tuned specifically for medical applications, on the same benchmarks and by a significant margin.

Advancing transparency: Updates on responsible AI research 
(Microsoft Research) A surge of generative AI models in the past year has fueled much discussion about the impact of artificial intelligence on human history. Advances in AI have indeed challenged thinking across industries, from considering how people will function in creative roles to effects in education, medicine, manufacturing, and more. Whether exploring impressive new capabilities of large language models (LLMs) such as GPT-4 or examining the spectrum of machine learning techniques already embedded in our daily lives, researchers agree on the importance of transparency.

conversational Interfaces

Choose the right chatbot solution for your use case
(Microsoft Learning) A chatbot is an application that has written or spoken natural language as its user interface. In other words, a conversation is the means through which questions are answered, requests are serviced, and so on.

Choose an Azure Cognitive Services technology
(Microsoft Learning) Azure Cognitive Services is a set of cloud-based APIs that you can use in AI applications and data flows. It provides pretrained models that are ready to use in your applications, requiring no data and no model training on your part. The services are developed by the Microsoft AI and Research team and expose the latest deep learning algorithms.

Microservices Architecture
(Microsoft Learning) As the name implies, a microservices architecture is an approach to building a server application as a set of small services. That means a microservices architecture is mainly oriented to the back-end, although the approach is also being used for the front end. Each service runs in its own process and communicates with other processes using protocols such as HTTP/HTTPS, WebSockets, or AMQP.
