The Chairman and CEO of Microsoft, Satya Nadella will be making a stop in Malaysia later this month. It will become his first official visit to Malaysia since he took over the mantel from his predecessor Steve Ballmer 10 years ago.

Satya is not coming here to launch Xbox

If you are expecting his upcoming visit to Malaysia to finally bring good news to gamers who have been waiting for Xbox to be officially available in our market for more than two decades, well…unfortunately, that is not the reason why he is coming to Malaysia.

Instead, Satya’s visit mainly has to do with the hottest thing in tech at the moment: artificial intelligence (AI). Specifically, the lead man of Microsoft has been scheduled to deliver the opening keynote at the Microsoft Build: AI Day Kuala Lumpur on 20 March at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre.

Below is the description of the keynote as stated on the event’s mini-site:  

Satya will talk about the new era of AI, and the opportunity for every organization in the region to apply advances in technology to shape what comes next for them, for Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and for society more broadly.

Meanwhile, Kuala Lumpur is the second stop in Satya’s Microsoft Build: AI Day tour across Southeast Asia. Before that, he will be in Jakarta on 19 March and after he is done with Kuala Lumpur, he will then make his way to Bangkok for another session on 21 March.

While Satya’s opening keynote address might seem like the biggest agenda of the event, there will also be panel discussions, tech demos, and hackathons. Among technologies that will be highlighted by these sessions include Azure OpenAI Service, Azure AI, Azure ML, Azure Kubernetes Service, Copilot, and GPT-4.

There is also a Connection Hub at the event whereby attendees can meet with experts, industry leaders, and fellow developers who not only can shed some light on your technical questions but also may offer opportunities for collaboration.
