Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella has called on Tech companies to defend users’ privacy as Individual right, urging Governments and Firms to Jointly work together to Shield the most vulnerable section in society.
“We all will have to think about the electronic experiences we create to deal with privacy as an individual right,” Nadella was quoted as saying.
“GDPR as a part of legislation, a piece of law is a great beginning and we’ve done a lot of hard work to become compliant with GDPR,” Nadella added, adding that the companies need to develop ethical standards around Artificial Intelligence (AI).
Nadella reported that 54 Azure Cloud regions worldwide is”more than any other provider”.
According to him, underwater info centers will play a key role in expanding Microsoft’s Cloud computing platform.
Under its”Project Natick”, Microsoft has already deployed a 40-foot data center pod on the seafloor off the coast of Scotland.
“Since 50 percent of the world’s population lives close to water bodies, we believe this is the way we want to think about future information centre growth,” Nadella said.
The business announced in the event that the health agency NHS Scotland will set up Office 365 to all of its 161,000 employees, moving from a complex organisation that included more than 100 separate computer systems.
Microsoft also formed a strategic partnership with Centrica, the British services and energy company behind brands such as British Gas, Dyno and Direct Energy.
Centrica plans to transform field operations by leveraging Microsoft Dynamics 365 and Artificial Intelligence, supplying employees with actual time and technical insight in order that they can improve client support.
