While OneDrive exists as both personal cloud storage tool and a repository for businesses, Microsoft had hitherto reserved the best features for subscribers of Office 365 (part of Microsoft 365 package), which is specifically targeted at Enterprises.
Microsoft announced its recent investments in the productivity tools, that combine the power of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning in OneDrive and SharePoint to help users to be more productive, and to make more informed decisions with their contents stored in the Cloud.
The company has employed AI for analyzing video and audio files stored in OneDrive and Sharepoint, and to help complete video and audio transcription, with a full transcript of the videos and audio files made available in Microsoft’s online viewer.
Also, Microsoft is looking to bring intelligent files recommendations to OneDrive and the web application suite that's live on Office.com, which will be powered by Microsoft Graph to help in surfacing the most relevant files based on who is corroborated with and particular situation.
The transcription feature, on the other hand, makes video stored within either cloud services to be automatically transcribed, making it easily searchable and playable using the native Windows player.
Additionally, Office will get a nifty feature that look out for content delivered or recieved during a meeting/presentation, or pictures on a whiteboard to serve as notes, which it will automatically prompt you to share with your coworkers.
Microsoft has promised that OneDrive will soon start showing files that are relevant to you, which feature is originally available for the Delve tool used to manage Office 365 profile, and to discover and organize the information that's likely to be most interesting to you across Office 365.
