JAKARTA, Indonesia (AP) — Microsoft will invest $1.7 billion over the next four years in new cloud and artificial intelligence infrastructure in Indonesia — the single largest investment in Microsoft’s 29-year history in the country. That’s according to Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, who was visiting the country and met Indonesian President Joko Widodo on Tuesday. Nadella said the company will also invest in AI training for 840,000 people, as well as the support to Indonesia’s growing developer community. The company sees Southeast Asia as a growing market and potential location for more AI product development. Widodo proposed building an AI research center and a Microsoft data center in Indonesia.
