Microsoft – The Universal Tutor

Extraordinary Profits From Ordinary Shares, Winning Stock Market Strategies

A lot has been happening at the Microsoft Campus – headquarters of Microsoft Corporation, Redmond, Washington, USA, Seattle.

And I mean a lot.

Microsoft has become the tutor and teacher of the world.

In February Microsoft announced plans to train 2 million people in India with Artificial Intelligence (“AI”) skills. Countries and companies are ramping up investments to take advantage of new AI opportunities. The training in India, which will be delivered in conjunction with government, nonprofit and corporate organisations and communities, will help the future workforce “harness AI’s potential”.

According to Forbes.com this includes partnering with national and state governments to give basic and advanced AI training to 500 000 students and job seekers “in-depth AI technical skills training” for 100 000 young women and raising awareness of responsible AI use and AI – enabled careers for 400 000 students in schools in remote and tribal regions.

Nadella, a native of India who took the helm at Microsoft a decade ago, said the country is “uniquely positioned to make the promise of AI a reality, AI is in the air now. It is going to have an impact on GDP”.

Microsoft will also train 100 000 developers in AI tools and technologies that will create AI fluency among India’s workforce, government officials and develop AI capacity in nonprofit organisations.

Nadella said: “Its fantastic to see how India’s developer community is applying our technology and tools to build the future for India and the world”.

Last year Microsoft announced a GBP 2.5 billion investment to expand its next generation AI data centre infrastructure in the UK.

Microsoft committed to doubling its data centre footprint in the UK and training more than one million people for the AI economy. They will be given the skills they need to build and work with AI, including expanded training for people looking to start, or move into, a career in AI.

Working in partnership with multiple learning and non-profit partners, the programme will focus on building AI fluency, developing AI technical skills, supporting AI business transformation, and promoting safe and responsible AI development and use including the first Professional Certificate on Generative AI.

In November 2022 Microsoft launched its “Skills for Switzerland” and to date 630 000 people in Switzerland have gained new digital skills. In the same announcement Microsoft committed to train 10 million people by providing free access to 350 courses, six new Career Essential’s Certificates and 50 000 LinkedIn Learning Scholarships.

This month Microsoft announced a $1.5 billion investment in Abu Dhabi’s G42 to accelerate AI development and global expansion. This strategic investment will enhance the UAE’s position as a global AI hub and provide further opportunities for partners and customers to innovate and grow.  Both companies will support the establishment of a $1 billion fund for developers.

Also, this month Microsoft announced a US$2.9 billion investment, the single largest investment in its 46 – year history, in Japan to expand its AI and cloud infrastructure.

Last year it announced a $3.2 billion cloud and AI investment in Australia.

I could continue this article in the same vein for many pages but I am constrained by time and space and I think I have managed to get the message to readers.

The Microsoft’s Mission is to empower every person and every organisation on the planet to achieve more.

Let’s not be naive. Microsoft is not totally altruistic, but it is very easy to see that the companies influence and reach and most importantly, for shareholders and new investors, its profitability is growing very rapidly.
