Microsoft struck a deal with Xiaomi in February to work closely with the Chinese device manufacturer as it adds to the artificial intelligence services it offers customers and expands its global reach.

The deal, officially the Strategic Framework Memorandum of Understanding, is focused on delivering next-generation AI capabilities across Xiaomi mobile devices. The agreement also called for Xiaomi to "explore" using Azure as a cloud compute, storage and networking platform for growth into international markets.

As to development of new technologies, Xiaomi and Microsoft said they would explore multiple cooperative projects based on a broad range of Microsoft AI technologies, such as computer vision, speech, natural language processing, text input, conversational AI, knowledge graph and search, as well as related Microsoft products and services, such as Bing, Edge, Cortana, XiaoIce, SwiftKey, Translator, Pix, Cognitive Services and Skype.
