Speaking at Microsoft Future Decoded at London’s ExCel exhibition centre on 1 November, Satya Nadella suggested that readily-available machine learning tools could “change the way health is given”.

“It’s not about the whizz-bang technologies, but the people behind it who take this technology and translate it into real action,” Nadella said. “The biggest proviso is seeing this all in action – how is the technology all being used? I ask the hard question: is our participation really translating into people using our technology to shape outcomes that matter?”
