What are the details of KPMG Microsoft AI investment?

The partnership will focus on developing AI tools that can help KPMG's businesses automate tasks, improve decision-making, and identify new opportunities. KPMG and Microsoft will also work together to develop AI tools that can help KPMG's clients comply with regulations.

The investment is part of a broader trend of consulting firms investing in AI. Rival consulting firms like PwC and Accenture have also made large-scale commitments to AI. This suggests that the use of AI is becoming increasingly important in the consulting industry.

This news comes right a few days after a hacker claimed they have hacked Microsoft to steal 30 million Microsoft customers' accounts.

Who are KPMG?

KPMG is a multinational professional services network, and one of the Big Four accounting organizations, along with Ernst & Young (EY), Deloitte, and PwC. The name "KPMG" stands for "Klynveld Peat Marwick Goerdeler". The initialism was chosen when KMG (Klynveld Main Goerdeler) merged with Peat Marwick in 1987.

In recent years, KPMG has been investing heavily in technology. The firm believes that technology is essential for providing its clients with the best possible services. KPMG has developed a number of innovative technologies, including a cloud-based audit platform and a data analytics tool.

How will it affect users?

The KPMG Microsoft AI investment is expected to have a number of benefits for users. For businesses, AI can help to automate tasks, improve decision-making, and identify new opportunities. For individuals, AI can be used to provide personalized services, such as financial advice or medical diagnosis.

The investment is also expected to create new jobs in the AI sector. KPMG and Microsoft have committed to training their employees on AI, and they are also expected to hire new AI experts.

Why is everyone focused on AI technologies?

There are a number of reasons why everyone is focused on AI. First, AI has the potential to automate many tasks that are currently performed by humans. This can lead to increased productivity and efficiency.

Second, AI can be used to improve decision-making. AI can analyze large amounts of data and identify patterns that humans might not be able to see. This can help businesses to make better decisions about things like product development, marketing, and customer service.

Third, AI can be used to identify new opportunities. AI can analyze data to identify trends and patterns that might not be obvious to humans. This can help businesses to find new markets and products.

    Are these articles AI generated?

    Now the duplicates are more obvious.

    1. boris said on March 19, 2023 at 11:48 pm

      This is below AI generated crap. It is copy of Microsoft Help website article without any relevant supporting text. Anyway you can find this information on many pages.

  2. Paul(us) said on March 20, 2023 at 1:32 am

    Yes, but why post the exact same article under a different title twice on the same day (19 march 2023), by two different writers?
    1.) Excel Keyboard Shortcuts by Trevor Monteiro.
    2.) 70+ Excel Keyboard Shortcuts for Windows by Priyanka Monteiro

    Why oh why?

      Yeah. Tell me more about “Priyanka Monteiro”. I’m dying to know. Indian-Portuguese bot ?

    Probably they will announce that the taskbar will be placed at top, right or left, at your will.

    Special event by they is a special crap for us.

    If it’s Microsoft, don’t buy it.
    Better brands at better prices elsewhere.

  5. John G. said on August 20, 2023 at 4:22 am

    All new articles have zero count comments. :S

  6. Anonymous said on September 5, 2023 at 7:48 am

    WTF? So, If I add one photo to 5 albums, will it count 5x on my storage?
    It does not make any sense… on google photos, we can add photo to multiple albums, and it does not generate any additional space usage

    I have O365 until end of this year, mostly for onedrive and probably will jump into google one

  7. St Albans Digital Printing Inc said on September 5, 2023 at 11:53 am

    Photo storage must be kept free because customers chose gadgets just for photos and photos only.

    What a nonsense. Does it mean that albums are de facto folders with copies of our pictures?

    1. GG said on September 6, 2023 at 8:24 am

      Sounds exactly like the poor coding Microsoft is known for in non-critical areas i.e. non Windows Core/Office Core.

      I imagine a manager gave an employee the task to create the album feature with hardly any time so they just copied the folder feature with some cosmetic changes.

      And now that they discovered what poor management results in do they go back and do the album feature properly?

      Nope, just charge the customer twice.

      Sounds like a go-getter that needs to be promoted for increasing sales and managing underlings “efficiently”, said the next layer of middle management.

    When will those comments get fixed? Was every editor here replaced by AI and no one even works on this site?

    Instead of a software company, Microsoft is now a fraud company.

  11. ard said on September 7, 2023 at 4:59 pm

    For me this is proof that Microsoft has a back-door option into all accounts in their cloud.
    quote “…… as the MSA key allowed the hacker group access to virtually any cloud account at Microsoft…..”

    so this MSA key which is available to MS officers can give access to all accounts in MS cloud.This is the backdoor that MS has into the cloud accounts. Lucky I never got any relevant files of mine in their (MS) cloud.

  12. Andy Prough said on September 7, 2023 at 6:52 pm

    >”Now You: what is your theory?”

    That someone handed an employee a briefcase full of cash and the employee allowed them access to all their accounts and systems.

    Anything that requires 5-10 different coincidences to happen is highly unlikely. Occam’s razor.

    Good reason to never login to your precious machine with a Microsoft a/c a.k.a. as the cloud.

    The GAFAM are always very careless about our software automatically sending to them telemetry and crash dumps in our backs. It’s a reminder not to send them anything when it’s possible to opt out, and not to opt in, considering what they may contain. And there is irony in this carelessness biting them back, even if in that case they show that they are much more cautious when it’s their own data that is at stake.
