Office Support for BYOD
These are all great functions, some of which are already available in Google Apps for Work. 

What I would like to see is for employees that bring their devices to work is the ability to run individual elements of the Office 365 Suite which are licensed for the Enterprise for work such as Skype for Business, but still have the flexiblity to run other editions of components Office 365 which might be used for a small side business, etc on the same device.

Re: Canh machine learning actually learn what we meant?
Agreed. I'll believe it when I see it. As much as this sounds like a good idea, in reality I wouldn't be surprised to see it all as just another Microsofot Paperclip getting in the way.

Canh machine learning actually learn what we meant?
Hopefully machine learning added to Word's proof reading will tend to yield the word intended as opposed to some word that completes the first four letters typed.
