Youâ€™re not going to hear anything about Cortana this week at Microsoftâ€™s Build conference.Â Â
Confused? Youâ€™re not alone. Microsoft Cortana has moved from becoming the flagship feature at the Windows 10 launch to something of a has-been.Â And yet the intelligence that powers her is something thatâ€™s become a priority for Microsoft, creating the impression that thereâ€™s Cortana, and then thereâ€™s AI, and the two are separate and distinct.Â
Thereâ€™s a similar gap between the reason that Cortana is absent from Build, and separate underlying issues with Cortana itself. Put simply, itâ€™s a bit of a mess.
