Clutter for Office 365 trains to declutter your Inbox

In addition to the previously reported "Delve", a new "smart" feature for Microsoft's Office 365 suite has arrived, this time carrying a perhaps more suitable name. Simply called "Clutter", this new feature leverages Microsoft's Office Graph technology to inject a bit of machine learning in helping people get out of the mess that is their Inbox.

Delve for Office 365 is Microsoft’s smart office secretary

No, this isn't Cortana in an office suit. It isn't even voice-controlled.
