Most of us have heard of Wait But Why, and it goes into great depth to explain complex (and weird) things. Microsoft is also launching a similar series, but only focusing on advanced technology such as deep neural networks, AI, and machine learning. The new series is from Microsoft’s Story Labs team, who are calling the series “Explanimators.”
The first episode of Explanimators has already been released, where Microsoft explains how artificial intelligence works using animated characters and Cortana:
Of course, Explanimators don’t go into all the details about tech, but it gives us a good idea of how some of the tech that powers parts of our daily lives actually work. For instance, in the first episode of Explanimators, Microsoft goes into some of the key points about AI and how algorithms can power experiences like Cortana.
