Play Productivity tools that watch you work, learn your habits, and write your autobiography all at once.
Eric Horvitz spends his time at MSR developing advanced ideas for time and resource management. His work automates the prioritization of tasks by monitoring the formatting of emails (and eventually the voice-print of voice-mails). His software even uses his digital camera to watch how he moves in his office, so his machine can learn by literally watching him work! His Life Browser tools give us a peek at the sort of software that might give all of us our own [virtual] executive assistant.
