Vision



The Envisioning Center serves as a platform to visualize the not so distant future of technology and how it will play a role in our lives. The ideas explored in the space investigate macro issues transforming the future of work and life. We articulate emerging opportunities through stories, prototypes and immersive experiences, provoking strategic dialogues and building a shared vision across Microsoft customers and partners.

Below is a glimpse of the explorations we developed for our future of work vision.

Environment

As we begin to live increasing digital lives we need to think about how the physical work environment serves us. How can we leverage a spectrum of space to provide a variety of working environments that adapt to their participants where physical space is as much a communication tool as your digital devices. We worked with O+A Architects to explore this specturm. 

Bring People
Together


We live increasingly globalized lives with distributed workforces and increased mobility. We believe that one of the key roles technology will need to play is to bring people together and be highly accessible through shared experiences.

Live Smarter


In a time of information abundance we need help to make sense of it all. We believe that this is where AI can play an interesting role. By not just bringing the right information at the right time, but by being a thought partner. A partner to assist in connecting you with the real-life expertise of other people in your network.


Creative
Flow


Creativity is becoming more important as automation takes over repetitive tasks. We want to assist flow between locations, devices and ideas through physical space and digital experiences. By taking care of rote tasks and creating a spectrum of work spaces we can empower people to do what humans do best - make the creative leaps and associations that machines can’t make.

Peace of
Mind


We are focused on making security and trust a natural part of the tools that people use and are comfortable with. In today’s world of collaborative teams and sophisticated cybercriminals our aspiration is a relentless focus on empowering people and building trust without onerous barriers and without compromising compliance or security.
