    Put "Cortana" Assistant Service Profile Microsoft "Chairman Satya Nadela" in a very embarrassing position during the 2015 Dreamforce conference in which the president of Microsoft spoke of "Cortana" capabilities in understanding against it and display the correct results voice commands.
    He said, "Satya" for "Cortana": "Show me my most at-risk opportunities" instead of saying: show me the most risky opportunities grin" making Cortana did not understand the intent of Microsoft Chairman and display the results of his" How to buy milk .. ".

    what would be even more funnier is that Cortana shows him as m$ the most risky investment.

    So, even with people in backstage, he and his bot(s) failed.

    In general, speech recognition is a risky business in itself. The technology has come a long way, but it's easy to cause the system to make mistakes.
    And if it doesn't fully understand you, it provides a default answer that matches as closely as possible.

    I'd cut Him and Cortana some slack.

    But the video is kind of amusing. :)

    I'd say... shiz happens!

    But again, see how much publicity it got?
    Remember Bill Gates and Windows 95 launch? Does that prevented anyone from using it? LOL

    Welcome Kortana... please spy my pants! :D

    I have come to understand Cortana works with better enunciation. It would easily accept opportunity as in British English than in American English because the T in opportunity sounds R in American English. I find Cortana very easy to use because it clearly understands my English.

    Obviously this happened because he's been to MDL and turned off Cortana's telemetry gathering.;)
