Windows 10 Now Runs On 700 Million Devices

Joe Belfiore corporate vice president of Windows 10 at Microsoft

Microsoft today held its Build developers conference.

Microsoft is seeking to advance its big push around the "intelligent edge" with a rollout of new capabilities and technologies for developers. With Timeline on Microsoft Launcher, it plans to enable cross device app launching experience.

DJI and Microsoft are already working together to advance technology for precision farming with Microsoft's FarmBeats solution, which aggregates and analyzes data from aerial and ground sensors using AI models running on Azure IoT Edge. Using applications written for Windows 10 PCs, DJI drones can be customized and controlled for a wide variety of industrial uses, with full flight control and real-time data transfer capabilities, making drone technology accessible to Windows 10 customers numbering almost 700 million globally. The company has unveiled two Windows 10 iOS apps that will make it easier for your iPhone to work with your PC. The offering is aimed at bringing AI to solutions for the edge and will be available next year. Microsoft's translation tool also offers real-time captioning of conversations.

Microsoft's Project BrainWave - its effort to use Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) technology to provide fast AI processing in Azure - is now in preview in a couple of different forms.

To make sure it's treated that way, Nadella said Microsoft has formed an "ethics board" to "govern the products we build".

To this end, Microsoft also announced the first Azure Cognitive Service available for the edge. The new Kinect won't be sold to consumers, but developers can sign on to receive a Kinect hardware kit that they can use to build their own tracking devices. As part of this theme, Microsoft announced a new architecture for neural networks, new AI SDKs, new cognitive services, and even AI-powered software development.

A few other notable announcements from Microsoft's event include a new AI for Accessibility program to help improve development of AI for people with disabilities. In addition, the new Windows Machine Learning platform will let developers create machine-learning models in the cloud, and deploy them offline to Windows.

Regardless, it's great to see Microsoft committed to bringing Windows 10 integrations to Android and iOS users.
