Introducing Project Cortex & How it can Help your Business

With so many places to store digital assets in Microsoft 365 – Teams, OneDrive, Outlook, SharePoint, and more – it can sometimes be difficult to remember where you saved something. Trying to find that project estimate? Is it on SharePoint? Maybe the Teams channel? Perhaps it’s in OneDrive for Business?

Powered by AI, Project Cortex can mine documents for you; finding key words, appropriately tagging files, and fostering easy access. Let’s explore what that access looks like.

How Project Cortex works

Project Cortex uses advanced AI to deliver insights and expertise in the apps you use every day, to harness collective knowledge and to empower people and teams to learn, upskill and innovate faster.

Building on the leading content services of SharePoint, Project Cortex connects content in Microsoft 365 and external content and enables you to manage your information and streamline processes with advanced security, compliance and automated workflow.

With Project Cortex comes the advent of Topic Cards, Topic Pages and Knowledge Centers. When browsing a file in Outlook, Word, SharePoint and Microsoft Teams, Topic Cards will pop up when you hover over a Project Cortex-identified key word. That might be a project name, client name, company initiative, or departmental procedure. The Topic Card provides a brief summary of the subject, points to associated people or subject matter experts, and offers key documents to consider reviewing.

From the Topic Card  you can step into the Topic Page, which provides a more detailed overview, resources of interest, people, and a spiderweb of related topics that might be relevant. All Topic Pages are housed in the centralized Knowledge Center. 


New topic pages and knowledge centers—created and updated by AI—enable experts to curate and share knowledge with wiki-like simplicity. And topic cards deliver knowledge just-in-time to people in Outlook, Microsoft Teams, and Office.


Again, Project Cortex uses AI to reason over content across teams and systems, recognizing content types, extracting important information, and automatically organizing content into shared topics like projects, products, processes and customers. Cortex then creates a knowledge network based on relationships among topics, content, and people.

That was just a brief overview of what you can do with Project Cortex.
