Microsoft will cut 18,000 jobs - about 14% of its workforce -- within the next year, CEO Satya Nadella said in a memo to staff. It is the largest layoff in company history.

Most of the layoffs -- 12,500 -- will come from Nokia's devices and services business that Microsoft recently bought. The other 5,500 are part of the company's new strategy to focus on improving its mobile and cloud productivity software. Ref. CNN

Supreme Court agrees to hear battle between U.S. And Microsoft over email privacy. The Microsoft case dates back to 2013, when U.S. Prosecutors demanded the Internet giant turn over emails linked to a drug-trafficking case. The emails were stored only on Microsoft servers in Ireland. Microsoft turned over information it had stored in the United States but sued to block the warrant, saying U.S. Law enforcement couldn't seize evidence held in another country. It warned that if it was forced to do so, foreign governments could force U.S. Companies to turn over evidence stored here. Ref. USAToday.

Microsoft has let go 15 journalists in favor of using AI to manage its MSN News site. Whereas the journalist used to pick and formulate stories this job will now be automated by Microsoft's computers.

Two questions to be asked. Will this new AI be smart enough to avoid conflicts in the way it presents the news and is this the future of job security?

Well, from what I can see a large chunk of today's news can be easily produced by "AI", since it has an information content pretty close to zero.
But I'm confident that automation will never replace investigation journalists.
