Re: Wikipedia
@soozyg I also hope that AI can help Wiki. If that doesn't help, what would, indeed? I, myself have corrected simple errors that any AI can catch. For instance, the year that a well know philosopher and educator was worn. I don't recall the rest, but they were in similar fashion.

Wikipedia
I hope AI will help Wikipedia. As a freelance writer, it's amazing to see the wide range of acceptance parameters for my clients for Wikipedia. Some clients encourage its use, some clients completely reject it. I'm actually never quite sure if it has the really correct story--the link that says anyone can edit makes it a little scary.

Microsoft Cortana Integrates With Power BI
Working with a lot of sales reps on a daily basis, for many in-house sales teams, an integration between CRM and other back end systems and fronted by Cortana like a real-life Jarvis from Iron Man, could be a helpful tool.  Not only could the assistant help by pulling up records and sales information, but also make it easy to locate and interact with the data.  

But from a reporting perspective, the ability to verbally ask a question and have the analytics run in the back end, would be a huge advantage.  It's a different way to tap into data instead of relying on spreadsheets and analytics Gurus.

And sadly, I didn't do nearly as well as you on the Is it Pokemon or Big Data quiz. But the Pokedex seems like a great source of product name ideas!
