First-ever Microsoft Envision showcases supermarket of the future, R3 partnership and Ecolab’s efforts to solve water shortages — Weekend Reading: April 8 edition

Weekend Reading returns with stories from the very first Microsoft Envision event, including a look at the supermarket of the future, a strategic partnership with R3 and a collaboration with Ecolab to find solutions to water shortages.

Microsoft’s new flagship event for business leaders, Envision, began Monday in New Orleans with more than 6,000 leaders from 70 countries attending. It featured a keynote from CEO Satya Nadella and a guest appearance from astronaut Captain Scott Kelly. The “red thread” that connected the keynote, the drill-down sessions and conversations on and off the expo floor was digital transformation, writes Chris Capossela, executive vice president and chief marketing officer.

Envision attendees saw how Italy’s biggest grocery cooperative is using futuristic technology to help shoppers return to the sociable days of open-air markets, where there were shopkeepers at every stall, ready to answer any question a customer might have about their wares. Coop Italia’s “supermarket of the future” concept replaces the tall shelves of a typical grocery with an airy layout, including easy-to-reach, tilted displays and informative screens at eye level. Motion sensors detect which product a shopper is pointing or looking at, triggering visual displays of information such as ingredients, potential allergens and the origin of the food. The design uses Kinect sensors, Microsoft Azure and other Microsoft technologies. Read more on the Transform blog.

Also Monday, Peggy Johnson, executive vice president for Business Development at Microsoft, announced a strategic partnership with R3, a consortium of leading banking institutions, to help turn the backbone of bitcoin, blockchain, into a revolutionary way for financial institutions to conduct transactions and track asset ownership securely and transparently.

Envision also shined a light on Ecolab, a $14 billion company that is a leading global provider of water, hygiene and energy technologies and services. It has partnered with Microsoft to use recent and future developments in cloud computing, applying cutting-edge technology to speed up how worldwide industries tackle water scarcity.

The Windows 10 Anniversary Update introduces Windows Ink – a family of end-to-end user experiences, platform advances and hardware capabilities. Windows Ink starts with the Windows Ink Workspace, coming this summer. Within it, Sticky Notes turns your handwriting into a powerful digital tool. You’ll also see a curated list of suggested apps in the Windows Ink Workspace to bring you the latest pen apps from the Windows Store, plus a dedicated link to all pen apps. Microsoft has also been working with third-party app developers to integrate simultaneous pen and touch, an example of which is shown in the video above with Adobe Illustrator. Head over to Building Apps for Windows to find out more about Windows Ink.

The App of the Week, “Quantum Break,” isn’t just a video game, it’s also a live action show featuring Shawn Ashmore as the hero, Jack Joyce; Aidan Gillen as his nemesis Paul Serene; and Dominic Monaghan as Jack’s genius brother William. In the aftermath of a split second of destruction that fractures time, two people have gained extraordinary abilities. One of them travels through time and becomes fixated on controlling this power. The other uses these new abilities to try to correct the timeline. Read more about it on the Windows Experience Blog.

Also check out the newest Red Stripe Deals for sales on six Windows 10 apps and games.

This week on the Microsoft Facebook and Instagram channels, we discovered how Temenos has transformed cloud-based banking by providing millions access to microfinance.

Education Underground Workshop, ‘Future Visions’ and Connect(); – Weekend Reading: Nov. 20 edition

Welcome back to another installment of Weekend Reading! We had a big week on several fronts, such as education, research and innovations for developers.

Microsoft hosted a group of educators, students and industry leaders on Monday through the Education Underground Workshop, which highlighted the company’s commitment to make learning more engaging and accessible, while empowering every student on the planet to achieve more. The event at Microsoft’s Redmond, Washington, campus followed an earlier unveiling of a new “Minecraft” coding tutorial by Microsoft and Code.org.

On Tuesday, Microsoft released an anthology inspired by the work Microsoft researchers are doing. “Future Visions: Original Science Fiction Inspired by Microsoft,” is available to anyone as a free download. Check out the story behind the making of the book.

“The idea was to bring authors in to expose them to what some people might think is science fiction. In a way, you could say the world of Microsoft Research turns science fiction into science fact,” says Steve Clayton, chief storyteller at Microsoft. “We didn’t show them a piece of technology and ask them to please write about that. We showed them technology and introduced them to a group of people, and then asked them, what did it spark in your mind as ideas, where did it inspire you to think the technology may go?”

Microsoft took a high-profile step at last year’s Connect(); virtual event for developers by unveiling plans to open source .NET on Linux and Mac and introducing the free Visual Studio Community for targeting any device and any operating system.

Welcome back to another edition of Weekend Reading! This week, we saw the global launch of Office 2016, a tour of the Microsoft campus by Chinese President Xi Jinping and how Microsoft Showcase Schools create innovative learning environments.

On Tuesday, Office 2016 arrived, marking a milestone in delivering new value for Office 365 subscribers with a focus on teamwork. It has lightning-fast search for your inbox and Office 365 Groups for seamless collaboration. With Office 365 Groups, you can create public or private teams with a shared inbox, calendar, notebook and cloud storage. The pairing of Office 365 and Windows 10 provides a complete solution for getting things done, including Windows Hello’s password-free login. The new Office has security features important for businesses and is a new model for delivery, with more frequent updates, new features and improvements for subscribers. As Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella writes, “How people work has changed dramatically. But one constant is that everyone wants to get more out of every moment of their life — after all, our time is the scarcest commodity. That’s why Microsoft has set a bold ambition to reinvent productivity and business process in this mobile-first, cloud-first world.”

During his tour, Xi met with senior executives and board members, watched technology demos and reviewed innovative new devices. Earlier in the day, Xi met with CEOs of technology companies who attended a meeting of the U.S.-China Internet Industry Forum. He also had a private meeting with Bill and Melinda Gates.
