One Minnesota-based Fortune 500 company is hoping that A.I. powered products will help propel new business, so much so that they've just trained 30,000 employees about it.

Weeks ago, Microsoft unveiled a controversial new feature for Windows PCs, Artificial Intelligence powered "Copilot+", this new feature has a particularly worrying element called "Recall", which takes screenshots of what you're doing on your computer so you can recall it at a later time. New laptops are starting to hit the market with this and other A.I. features built in, and Best Buy is gearing up for what they hope is high demand for these new products.
