Hi all,

I came across a Microsoft AI video that I thought was interesting and
food for thought here. The link shows the demo of AI features in

It shows an auto-designer, a better grammar checker, Intranet search
and easy copy/paste, nice pen gestures, and analysis of spreadsheets
(trends and outliers). He also references some other AI-powered
features (quickstarter, researcher, my analytics, ink to math, ink to
shape, math assistant)

There's been a lot of progress in deep learning in the last few years.
It is arguably overkill in many situations, but there are a lot of
people working on it, and they are making continuous breakthroughs.
There are some powerful Python libraries to consider integrating
better into LibreOffice (perhaps via extensions) such as scikit-learn,
nltk, PyTorch and Keras. There are C/C++ machine learning libraries
that could be worth putting into LibreOffice also, and perhaps it has
some already with the Calc solver.

It would be interesting to see a Deep Lightproof or other interesting
machine learning features one day. I tried to get the Java-based
Language Tool working on my machine and didn't manage, and it made
LibreOffice stutter, and the UI was tiny / unreadable, etc. I don't
know if anyone has talked to them about the benefits of Python ;-)
