Microsoft Outlook Mobile Manager Debuts at Demo 2001

Today at the annual DEMO 2001 conference in Phoenix, Microsoft Corp. will unveil the beta of Microsoft Outlook Mobile Manager, a breakthrough PC application that extends the power, reach and functionality of Microsoft Outlook to a wide variety of mobile devices. Using smart technology, Mobile Manager tracks how a user interacts with his or her Outlook communications, and then uses this information to automatically develop filters governing which urgent e-mail messages, calendar entries, contacts, and tasks are sent as notifications to wireless devices such as text-enabled mobile phones. In addition, while it can operate as stand-alone desktop application, Mobile Manager provides users with increased functionality when used in conjunction with its parent product, Mobile Information 2001 Server.

As part of its presentation at DEMO, Microsoft will demonstrate a number of Mobile Manager’s exclusive artificial intelligence features, developed by the company’s research and development division, Microsoft Research. These features combine automated reasoning, natural language processing, and customizable priority profiles to give Mobile Manager users the tools to better manage their mobile communications:

Automated profiling and prioritizing. This feature assigns values of urgency to e-mails and uses AI systems to track how a user interacts with his or her Outlook communications, and “learn” what makes a message urgent for each individual user. The system then automatically defines and selects rules that filter incoming emails for urgency. Using this information, Mobile Manager’s automated reasoning technology determines the importance of each message and sends it to the users mobile devices based on his or her priorities.

Intellishrink. Most wireless devices are limited in the number of characters that can be received in a single text message. Intellishrink uses natural language processing technology to compress messages by letting users choose automatic message-condensing options such as removing spaces, using familiar abbreviations, removing punctuation and deleting vowels. By removing unnecessary characters and words, a message can be compressed down to 30 per cent of its original size, without compromising the message’s content.
