Meetings will be handled and managed by a digital agent and skype bots will be talking to you in 2017. These are just some of the conveniences life is gifted with.

Codenamed "Calendar.help," a project by Microsoft, Cortana, the digital assistant complete with artificial intelligence  and Siri's ability of voice recognition, is given the ability to schedule meetings and arrange them. To use Cortana for scheduling meetings, users should give important information such as location of the meeting, time, date and other important facts when writing emails for the meeting. It manages meetings invites effectively and  contacts the attendees and give them 48 hours to respond, Gadgets 360 reported.

"Calendar.help" team confirms artificial intelligence (AI) and conversational computing as well.

Since the existence of conversational computing, Gadgets 360, on the other hand, confirmed skype getting support for Microsoft talking bots next year, making new ways for users to interact with Skype services. 

Phone Review said one of Skype's business partner is Expedia.com. Managing reservations, confirming and canceling hotel and flights and bookings are some actions the Expedia bots can do. However, if there will be questions the bot cannot answer, Expedia offers free of charge direct call to their company. 

Another real-life experience will be offered by another Skype partner, UPS, a shipping company, which has the ability to track packages, compute shipping rates, and search for user's local branch.

StubHub will also have a bot that will allow users to book tickets for events such as concerts. Everything will be done online and from within your Skype window.

Technology has gone too far now with softwares and bots making anything computer or smart phone-based business easier and more convenient. With the project and partnerships, will Microsoft be taking a great deal of success?
