If you have been following Windows 10 related news, you probably already know that Microsoft is looking to integrate Cortana as your personal digital assistant across all your devices, from the Microsoft Band on your wrist, to the phone, tablet and even your desktop PC.
The Redmond giant has just released a video in which Marcus Ash from the Windows team discusses the interesting history of Cortana and how the personal assistant comes to be in Windows 10. The Program Manager explains that it all started with the realization that search needed to be redefined, and that it's all about personal computing, a term that Microsoft used a lot at the January 2015 press conference to describe the future of Windows.
Cortana is different from the competition because it learns about you and what you like, what you typically look for, and by using that it becomes more human-like, to take things off your plate. It is more than just a simple tool, it uses patterns to make predictions, and to help you multitask better.
Microsoft is looking to create an experience that roams across all of your devices, helping you organize your life and your tasks, or simply put - to make your life easier. You can dive into the details here.
