    Microsoft is sending Cortana to school.
    The Cortana Intelligence Institute is a collaboration between Microsoft Research, Cortana Research and RMIT University in Australia, focused on developing Cortana's next-generation capabilities.
    Microsoft's approach with Cortana has always been different than what Google and Apple are doing with their digital assistants, Assistant (previously Google Now) and Siri, respectively. Cortana was intentionally patterned after real-world personal assistants, notebook and all.

    The premise is that Cortana would, like real assistants, get to know a user better over time and subsequently be able to proactively serve that user. She also provides time-, and people-based reminders. For example, if a user needed to be reminded of something in relation to another individual, an interaction such as a phone call or email from that person would trigger the reminder. . Location-based reminders are another example of this type of personal support.

    Cortana's (and other assistant's) ability to tie into a device's GPS and recognize interactions with specific people are examples of context-aware features the Cortana Intelligence Institute will build upon for next-generation capabilities.
