First seen at Microsoft Ignite 2019, Project Cortex is the future of knowledge management for organizations and the result of a concerted effort by organizations across Microsoft to deliver a coherent cross platform experience for managing and organizing knowledge to empower people – just-in-time and in the context of their daily work.  In Project Cortex, AI is fully integrated in this advanced ECM solution aiding with the evaluation of content as it comes into the organization to helping users find the right authoritative content when they need it to shape informed outbound communications.

Licensing is not yet defined for this premium offering that will be released later in H1.  What is certain, is there will be plenty of extensibility opportunities for PnP Community members relating to Project Cortex.  More extensions, more demos!
