Microsoft turns AI loose on new documents from JFK Investigation
May 29, 2018 by staff

In this video, researchers apply Microsoft Cognitive Search to find clues in newly released documents on the JFK assassination.

    Late last year the US government released more than 34,000 pages related to the assassination of JFK. Like everyone in the country we were curious to know what?s inside them, but it would take us months to read through these. The files consisted of mixture of typed and handwritten pages that were 60 years old which were scanned into PDF files as well as scanned evidence photos. How could we make sense of all this unstructured information in a way that would grow with the continual flow new documents that the government continues to release?

    What if we could bring the full power of Microsoft?s AI to understand what was in those files and the vast scale of the Azure Cloud to handle the continual flow of data? How would we do it? Where do you start? In addition to classic engineering problems such scalable search and reliably interpreting document formats, we needed to solve super hard problems such as interpreting handwritten documents and learning key topics within them. More importantly, we kept hearing the exact same kinds of problems from our customers about their own data. We realized that by combining Azure Search and Cognitive Services together we could create a powerfully simple solution to these problems.

It's an interesting concept. I don't expect them to turn up anything ground breaking yet or nowadays; but in the future, maybe. A bit of a wonky article, just to accompany the thread.
