Today's Story Highlights

US Fingers North Korea for WannaCry Epidemic
The United States on Tuesday accused North Korea of responsibility for a
global ransomware attack that locked down more than 300,000 computers in

its flagship products and services. Harry Shum, EVP of Microsoft AI and
Research, recently demonstrated some of the new capabilities. Building
