Famous Women Engineers

Number 31: Microsoft’s Lili Cheng

No. 31: Microsoft's Lili Cheng

It’s something we all love to do: dream big dreams of our futures. That is what Lili Cheng did as a little girl and now she is a distinguished engineer in Microsoft’s AI & Research division. Cheng is a 20-year Microsoft veteran currently working on smart, conversational bots (the Microsoft Bot Framework). In other words, Microsoft has no intention of ceding the voice interface market to Amazon Alexa, and Cheng is charged with making that so.

And, she helped organize a two-day gathering of all things bot in New York known as Botness. And before all that, she was the director of user experience for Microsoft Windows.

Internally, she’s known as the person behind Kodu Game Lab, a game for teaching kids programming, created seven years ago.

Thank you for these 31 great examples of big dreamers, big learners and big doers, Business Insider! Here’s to an inspiration month of learning about Engineers Like You! Thanks!!!
