Online artificial intelligence bots are set to dominate customer service in the near future, according to a new vision unveiled by Microsoft. At its Build developers' conference in San Francisco, the software giant showcased new tools to help companies build and customise artificial intelligence systems online to help with everything from ordering a pizza to booking a hotel room. MIcrosoft Skype executive Lilian Rincon demonstrated a booking made with a bot from the Westin Hotel in Dublin within Skype. She then showed how the bot could delve into her messages to organise a reunion with a Dublin-based friend. So-called chatbots are not new in customer service.

NEW YORK--Samsung's Galaxy Note 7 might have claimed a spot on the tastiest products to consider this holiday season -- but we all know how that one turned out. After receiving high praise during its late-summer debut, the twice-recalled and ultimately discontinued phablet phone had a tendency to catch on fire. Fortunately, the products on this list might be deemed hot for another reason. They've left a (mostly) positive impression these past 12 months. The cameras are excellent, certainly on par with the equally fine iPhone 7 Plus and Samsung Galaxy S7 shooters.
