Microsoft has spent most of this year touting the promise of artificial intelligence and how it can reshape society. The job for Chris Young, head of Microsoft’s corporate strategy, is making sure that hype turns into purchases of Microsoft’s AI tools.
Young leads a hundreds-strong team that works with outside partners like Facebook parent Meta Platforms to develop products made with technologies such as augmented reality and generative AI. Young also oversees Microsoft’s venture investment arm M12, which does early-stage startup investments.
