The art behind Napoleon and Louis XIV’s 3-D maps | Ep. 1
In this three-part Today in Technology series, Microsoft President Brad Smith and Communications Director Carol Ann Browne examine how AI and mixed reality can open a new window into French culture by using technology like HoloLens.

First, they go to Paris where the once-secret military maps of Louis XIV and Napoleon have been on display for decades. Can HoloLens technology help transform these treasures for audiences in the 21st century?
