HP and Intel are Partnering on Cortana Devices Too

On the opening day of Build 2017, Microsoft revealed that HP and Intel are partnering with it on Cortana hardware devices.

“The ultimate AI we’ve been dreaming about and working on is Cortana, your personal intelligent assistant,” Microsoft Executive Vice President of Artificial Intelligence & Research Harry Shum says. “With more than 145 million people using Cortana in many different countries, and our rapid expansion across devices and platforms, we want to make it easier for every developer to reach this growing audience.”

Harmon Kardon revealed the first Cortana-powered device, the Invoke smart speaker, last week. But that firm won’t be alone: Intel is creating reference platforms for Cortana-powered devices that hardware makers can utilize. And HP, once again the world’s biggest maker of PCs, is the second company to partner with Microsoft on its own Cortana device.

For now, that’s all the details we have. But I’ll update this post if or when we learn more this week.
